πŸ’¬ Possible Interview Questions

Replied to Possible Interview Questions by Greg McVerryGreg McVerry (Quick Thoughts by jgmac1106)

Going with a semi-structured interview protocol

How long have you been an #indieweb WordPress user?

What drew you to try out #indieweb plug-ins on WordPress?

How would you rate your understandings of the technlogies that make it all work?

Do you know what plug-ins you usee?

To the best of your recollection try to recall your set up process.

What is the best part of using #indieweb WordPress plug-ins?

What do you believe we should change to make it easier for WordPress users to utilize #indieweb plug-ins?

I have really enjoyed following your recent work Greg in regards to onboarding and supporting new #IndieWeb users. One of the things that stood out from the questions on the IndieWeb site was the one about ‘Child Themes’. I think that is more complicated than:

I have never heard about it or never used
I have heard of, but never used
I can use it.
I can teach it.
I can build it.

I have followed various instructions and approaches, yet have never really been able to fully master the setup. Some themes like ZenPress are more complicated than others. There is always something that slips through. I have resorted in some cases to using a Header/Footer plugin for stuff like ‘Rel=Me’.

    1. Not sure about ‘bad form’ Matt, but I don’t think it is best practice. Clearly you can do a lot in a child theme than just add ‘rel=me’ into the header, such as adjust the CSS to remove lines etc. In the end, it works for me for now. I am not sure what others would say and I know that quite a few are critical of the SNAP plugin – not sure exactly why – I am probably a bit more pragmatic.

      1. I get why. If I could get the Bridgy Publish plugin to post my IG imports from Ownyourgram properly I would just use that. It was great for text. I get what you are saying. It also helps newbs like me understand how everything works together more if we were coding our own rel=me’s.
