miklb: It isn't calling the full URL? It ends in wp-json?
KevinMarks and wolftune joined the channel
#
miklb
full URL, just now without the subdirectory in it.
#
GWG
Odd, I'm using the built-in function, rest_url.
#
miklb
hmm. The POST request from wp/wp-admin/post-new.php is http, but the wp-json request is https
#
miklb
that fixed it.
#
miklb
I changed the WP & Site URL to use the https in settings->General
#
miklb
well, it didn't throw an error, but didn't retrieve the info
#
miklb
think it was a bad Twitter URL, now all seems to be working

what is a reply
#
Loqi
A reply (or comment) is a kind of post that is a text (typically, though photos are possible too) response to some other post, that makes little or no sense without reading or at least knowing the context of the source post https://indieweb.org/reply
#
miklb
aaronpk that page has this link of yours as a example of a reply, https://aaronparecki.com/2013/03/19/2/indiewebcamp but I'm not seeing any in-reply-to markup. Am I just missing it?

well, I think I'm going to strip them down and then add. Right now I feel like I have too much going on and don't fully grasp the nuances of the different types.

GWG
miklb: It's been on my list for a long while.

That's why I built the templating system.

it's great.

But I have a long-standing plan to customize as many of them as possible.

I'll certainly share upstream as I go.

#
miklb
seems the micropub endpoint is using the subdirectory
#
GWG
The Micropub endpoint uses a query string endpoint.
#
GWG
That should work.
#
miklb
but everything else is without the /wp/
#
miklb
rel="webmention" href="https://miklb.com/wp-json/webmention/1.0/endpoint"
#
GWG
It is using site_url, webmention is using rest_url
#
miklb
site_url should have the /wp/ should it?
#
GWG
Yes
#
miklb
meant to say shouldn't have. hmm. home_url doesn't have the /wp/
#
miklb
just not sure what I changed to cause it to start doing that
#
miklb
some nginx rules maybe
#
miklb
hmm. a hiccup maybe

[kevinmarks]: have you noticed any issues with the mf2 on there now?
skippy joined the channel
#
skippy
the overloading of elements between h-card and h-entry are confusing me. p-name is person's name on h-card, but post name on h-entry. u-url is home page or post canonical link.
#
aaronpk
think of it as "p-name is the name of the thing", and "u-url is the url of the thing"
#
skippy
ok thanks.
#
skippy
is there a recommended practice for inserting some element into the <head> section of my pages to include a link with rel="author" to my home page? I don't want to put "by skippy" on every post on my vanity domain where i'm the only author.
#
aaronpk
ah yeah, a couple tricks you can do
#
aaronpk
this has the details on how people try to find the author of the post https://indieweb.org/authorship
#
aaronpk
so on your post permalink you can use <link rel="author" href="/"> for example

Hmm, catching up on ActivityPub... how does it relate to other IndieWeb protocols like Micropub and Webmention?
#
aaronpk
it's being developed by some others in the same W3C group
#
[cleverdevil]
Seems like it duplicates some of the behaviors of Micropub in different ways? Or I could be misreading.
#
aaronpk
yes, it's a somewhat different approach at things

Interesting.

Marty was saying your port from Slack to IRC cut off the URL, though the topic of URL design is interesting on it's own.

It's also been 13+ years, and I still run into URL quirks in WordPress...

[eddie]
tantek: I would definitely be interested in reading blog posts on that. I put medium thought into my urls, but not extensive thought. However, since I’m using a pretty custom CMS (mix of Node.js and Jekyll) the URLs are completely of my own decisions and designs, so anything I can do to improve it, I’m interested in reading and thinking through
#
tantek
eddie, I've been capturing my notes on it in /URL_design, from the perspective of what I actually implemented in /Falcon, and encouraging other folks to add their opinions / experience / implementation strategies also
