Liked Reply to Ryan Boren et al on the WordPress Link Manager, Calypso, and Indie Blogging by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)
The Link Manager still seems relatively solid and much of the infrastructure still works well, despite the warnings and lack of updates over the past several years. It would be nice to see it make a comeback and I can personally see many ways it could come back as a means of allowing people to better own their personal social graph as well as dovetail with readers. (This could also be the cornerstone of helping to make WordPress it’s own decentralized social network so that those who want to leave Facebook, Twitter, et al. could more easily do so and maintain their own data and infrastructure.)
Liked Creating a tag cloud directory for the Post Kinds Plugin on WordPress by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)
Yesterday after discovering it on Xavier Roy’s site I was reminded that the Post Kinds Plugin is built on a custom taxonomy and, as a result, has the ability to output its taxonomy in typical WordPress Tag Cloud widget.

Think of an OPML subscription as an updating subscription to a bundle of RSS feeds which all also provide their own individual updates. Instead of subscribing to a bunch of individual feeds, you can subscribe to whole bundles of feeds.

Replied to Reply to Brad Enslen about Blogrolls in WordPress by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)
I’ve written up a bunch of details on how and what I did (as well as why), so hopefully it’ll give you a solid start including some custom code snippets and reasonably explicit directions to make some small improvements for those that may be a bit code-averse. Hint: I changed it from being a sidebar widget to making it a full page. Let us know if you need help making some of the small code related changes to get yourself sorted.
I have been wondering about your following page / blogroll lately. I looked into Colin Walker’s plugin, but really did not want to rewrite all my links.

I have also been looking into archive page templates and assume that just as an archive can be incorporated into a widget or within a template, you have done the same thing with your ‘blogroll’, therefore when you add somebody new (seemingly weekly, if not daily) then your page automatically updates?

Ideally they’d want to have webmentions work in two places. It would be great if they could send webmentions of annotations/highlights to the original page itself, so that the site owner is aware that their content is being marked up or used in this manner.
I am really intrigued by the work going on this space. I think that the addition of webmentions and micropub specifications would be a huge positive.

I really must dig in, as I can see this being a replacement for Diigo, which I have progressively moved away from this year. Although Press Forward might offer some of this functionality too.

Liked Threaded conversations between WordPress and Twitter by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)
I’ve written about threading comments from one WordPress website to another before. I’ve long suspected this type of thing could be done with Twitter, but never really bothered with it or necessarily needed to do it, though I’ve often seen cases where others might have wanted to do this.
Liked An Outline for Using Hypothesis for Owning your Annotations and Highlights by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)

There are certainly variations of ways for attempting to own one’s own annotations using Hypothesis and syndicating them to one’s website (via a PESOS workflow), but I thought I’d outline the quickest version I’m aware of that requires little to no programming or code, but also allows some relatively pretty results. While some of the portions below are WordPress specific, there’s certainly no reason they couldn’t be implemented for other systems.

Replied to 📑 Highlight of “Interviewing my digital domains” by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)
Typically a highlight wouldn’t include a textual note (like this), otherwise it would be considered marginalia or a general annotation. Perhaps I’ll get around to adding an annotation type shortly as well.
In regards to post kinds, how is a highlight different from a quote?
