Replied to In the SPLOT Footnotes it says 1. you can add your own features (CogDogBlog)

It’s a matter of installing and activating the Easy Footnotes plugin.

Using it when writing, is a matter of starting at the point you want the footnote attached, adding an [efn_note] shortcode then the text that you want to appear in the footnote, and closing it with the ending [/efn_note] shortcode.

Still living the dream that is the text editor, I use Post Editor Buttons Fork to help add in snippets of code.
Liked The Beginner’s Guide to WordPress Actions and Filters (Code Envato Tuts+)

In this post, we’re going to take a look at the WordPress page life cycle, understand how hooks work, and review the differences in actions and filters so that we may not only become better theme and/or plugin developers, but also have a deeper understanding of how WordPress works.

Bookmarked Avoiding the Lock-in Effect in WordPress – Nelio Software by (Nelio Software)

If you change your theme or disable any of your WordPress plugins and your website breaks down, you are suffering from the lock-in effect. Learn about it.

I sometimes worry about this in regards to the IndieWeb, especially the Post Kinds plugin. Although David Shanske stores it for future use, I feel it would require a significant technical knowledge, which I don’t have.
Bookmarked 15 Useful WordPress Configuration Tricks That You May Not Know by (WPBeginner)

The ultimate collection of the most useful WordPress configuration (wp-config.php) tricks that you may need but do not know about!

This is a useful guide into the backend of WordPress. Two tricks stood out to me:

Changing Your Site or WordPress Address

Normally, you can set your WordPress and Site URLs from Settings Β» General page. However, you may not be able to do that if you don’t have access to your WordPress site, seeing redirect errors, or have just moved your site.

In that case, you can change your site and WordPress URLs via wp-config.php file by adding the following lines:

define('WP_HOME', '');
define('WP_SITEURL', '');


Moving wp-content Directory

WordPress allows you to move your wp-content directory. Some experts believe that it can help strengthen WordPress security.

You will need to add the following code to your wp-config.php file:

define( 'WP_CONTENT_DIR', $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/blog/wp-content' );
define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', 'http://example/blog/wp-content');
define( 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR', $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/blog/wp-content/plugins' );
define( 'WP_PLUGIN_URL', 'http://example/blog/wp-content/plugins');

Don’t forget to replace with your own domain name.

I wonder if this would allow me to better integrate my ‘home’ space and have a shared content / plugin library between my different sites?

Replied to Setting up WordPress for IndieWeb use by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (Chris Aldrich | BoffoSocko)

This was a really helpful walk-through Chris. I agree with your point in the IndieWeb podcast that it could be compressed into half an hour, but I always thought that was the point of adjusting the playback speeds?

I just had a few thoughts / questions while watching / listening:

    I never realised that I could add all my Rel=Me links within my profile, does that mean that I do not have to go through all the rigmarole of adding them to my ‘child theme’? That definitely makes it a lot easier to setup.
    I am really interested in modifying / developing a custom post kind, but what happens when David Shanske updates the plugin? How do I set up to allow for updates and customisation? Is this some sort of ‘child theme’?
    I wonder if it were possible (maybe in the IndieWeb multisite or something) to customise the ‘Welcome’ box when you first start WordPress? Imagine if the information that is detailed in the IndieWeb plugin area could be placed there, front and centre?

Show notes

Another great listen David and Chris. I have taken to using Post Editor Buttons Fork plugin to add custom code, such as embedding audio and syndicating to #IndieNews. I am happy with any other solution, especially as I imagine Gutenberg may break my buttons?

I am really interested in your work in combining Bridgy Publish and Syndicated Links. I currently use SNAP for Twitter, Flickr and Diigo, Mastodon Autoposter and Jetpack for G+. (I could never get Bridgy Publish to work, but after Chris’ recent walkthrough, I think that I need to have a second look.) I find it really tedious to remember which ones to turn on and off for each post. I really like the idea of one space to control them all if that is what you are proposing.
