Replied Reply to Storify Bites the Dust. If You Have WordPress, You Don’t Need Another Third Party Clown Service (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
Better than relying on the auto-embed handled by WordPress, actually copy the entire embed from Twitter to capture the text and content from the original.
I really like your point Chris in regards to the difference between the shortcode and the embed code. I wonder if there is a potential to build on Martin Hawksey’s TAGS work to smash the different parts together in Sheets rather than manually copying the embed code for each Tweet. Something like this:

=“<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p dir="ltr" lang="en">”&text&” — (@”&from_user&”) “&source&” “&created_at” <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8">”

I still need to think about how to accommodate “twitter-tweet” so that Sheets reads this as text too.

Doing it this way would allow users to download a list of their tweets and potentially paste the IDs into tags and then generate the embed code.

Replied Fragmentions for Better Highlighting and Direct References on the Web by Chris Aldrich (Boffosocko)
Fragmention is a portmanteau word made up of fragment and mention (or even Webmention), but in more technical terms, it’s a simple way of creating a URL that not only targets a particular page on the internet, but allows you to target a specific sub-section of that page whether it’s a photo, paragraph, a few words, or even specific HTML elements like
or on such a page. In short, it’s like a permalink to content within a web page instead of just the page itself.
Another fantastic post Chris. I love the notion of mentioning a specific part of the text and find it particular useful to link back to sections from my longer posts or parts of my newsletters.

I find it interesting to consider alongside Hypothesis and wonder what the different use cases are?

I have added the plugin, but found the documentation associated with Kartik Prabhu’s additional code confusing, so left it. Is this what Khurt was referring to?

I look forward to seeing where all this grows?

Aaron

P.S. I thought that Flickr sent webmentions (as it is attached to Bridgy), however I was clearly wrong. Sorry.

Replied Ask Me Anything (AMA) (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
Chris, I have been investigating bookmarking lately. I noticed that you trialed Radio3 a while back. I like what it offers in regards to syndication, but was wondering if there was a way of doing the same sort of thing in WordPress? That is, post a ‘Like’ on my site, but publicise the original link? I guess I could do this manually, I was just dreaming of something a little more automated?
Replied A Digital Food Diary on My Own Website (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
Food and Drink on my own website I’ve been wanting to do it for a while, but I’ve finally started making eat and drink posts. The display isn’t exactly what I want yet, but it’s getting there. For myself and those reading, I’ll try to continue tweaking on templates, but with the start of ...
Is there a limit? Chris, I love how your site just keeps on developing. I am not sure if I am going to start adding such stories to my site, but it really gives me hope about a better web.
Replied Pocket 2017 Year in Review (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
According to Pocket, I’m still in their top 5% of their readers/users despite the fact that I cut way back on using it this past year in strong deference to using other feed readers including one built into my website. Apparently I read 678, 617 words in their app this year which according to the...
Apparently I am in the Top 1%. I must admit that I have come to use it more now that you can play posts. What I find intriguing is what they measure ‘reading’ as and how they decided that it was like reading 35 books. It actually made me wonder if there are many people actually using Pocket anymore?
Replied Read Write Collect | Aaron Davis (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
I’ve been following Aaron Davis for a while at Read Write Respond, but today I noticed a whole new part of his online presence at Read Write Collect that I’ve been missing all along!
Chris, your bookmark encouraged me to clarify my purpose and intent for developing another site. Like Michael Bishop, I think that the answer to my online presence is in having two distinct spaces, one for my long form posts and the other a collection of my presence on the web. I can see the benefit in consolidating everything into one space, as you do or better using a platform like Known, however it is working for now.
Replied Accessibility on the Web (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
I certainly don’t go out of my way to follow the topic of accessibility, though I do think about it occasionally. It’s apparently bubbling up more frequently as something in need of some dire attention on both the web and in real life. I ran across three different pleas in less than the span of...
Just to add to the conversation Chris, Tom Woodward has done a bit in regards to investigating WordPress and accessibility that might be worth checking out:

I’ve switched over to David Shanske’s IndieWeb-friendly fork of the TwentySixteen Theme tonight. Liking it a lot so far. Can’t wait to see what little surprises I run across under the hood and how we can potentially make it better for the community.
Really interested Chris in what David Shanske’s theme might have to offer. Having spent some time lately trying to get my head around the ‘motor under the hood’, I am wondering about the difference between David’s approach to fork the 2016 theme, compared to your approach of creating a child. Is there simply fors and againsts for both? Or is one more ideal? Just wondering as per usual.
Replied Finally! Simple Blog to Blog conversations in WordPress. by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)
IndieWeb and Webmentions plugin for WordPress FTW! I don’t think I’d used it before or really seen it happening in the wild, but Khurt Williams used his website to reply to one of my posts via Webmention. I was then able to write my reply directly within the comments section of my original post...
I was wondering how I was meant to facilitate a threaded comment. Wondering Chris, is that with the Threaded Comment plugin? I remember seeing it listed as ‘optional’. Can’t remember if I installed it.

I still want to know how to bake more code into my responses/posts etc. Is it something that you handcraft or put into the theme?

I remember when I thought I had my head around WordPress and blogging. Then I found the IndieWeb and realised I had sold myself a lie.
