jeremycherfas: strip_tags replaces "<p>" with "", and htmlspecialchars replaces "<p>" with "&lt;p&gt;"
#
funwhilelost
I think your update is far superior in the case of the RSS titles
#
funwhilelost
Potentially you could propose htmlspecialchars(strip_tags("My post title"))
#
funwhilelost
Then if someone did "My <b>Post</b> & Yours" it would result in "My Post &amp; Yours" - which is valid. But I don't see how/why HTML tags would end up in a post title...

Trying to add webmention support to my WP site at eatthispodcast.com. I have the indieauth plugin activated, and have signed in at indieauth using Twitter to validate. But webmention rocks says it cannot find an authorization endpoint. What now?
#
[jeremycherfas]
@funwhilelost this was something of an odd case in that the title in my Known stream was actually brought in there by ownyourgram as the caption of an image.
#
snarfed
[jeremycherfas]: authorization? webmention shouldn't need authorization. are you maybe accidentally using micropub.rocks?

Nope. Webmention.rocks receiver test #1

#
[chrisaldrich]
jeremycherfas Once you've downloaded the webmention plugin and activated it, you should be good to go.
#
[chrisaldrich]
Though you _could_ test it against webmention.rocks, it should give you the basic functionality for sending/receiving.
#
[jeremycherfas]
I thought I would test before trying anything else, because a test from Twitter this morning failed, and I had webmention plugin enabled.
#
[jeremycherfas]
I’ll look at brid.gy’s log again
#
gRegorLove
Huh, yeah, seems weird that webmention.rocks is saying to add <link rel="authorization_endpoint" href="https://indieauth.com/auth">
#
[jeremycherfas]
Yeah. I’m going to give up on that as brid.gy now seems to have got through. Thanks snarfed and gregorlove And chrisaldrich
#
gRegorLove
I guess it needs that to know to use indieauth.com; could use another service
#
gRegorLove
Your primary domain has the authorization_endpoint, that's why it worked.

jeremycherfas for backfeeding comments from silos via bridgy, you may want to work your way through https://indieweb.org/WordPress_with_Bridgy, particularly
#
[jeremycherfas]
Yeah. The linkback hasn’t actually arrived at my /mentions page, as far as I can tell. But that’s another issue for another day. Baby steps.
#
[chrisaldrich]
for comments, likes, etc. to come back from twitter via bridgy you'll also want to have u-syndication labeled links on your posts and this is most easily done with the syndication links plugin.
#
[chrisaldrich]
jeremycherfas Keep in mind that native webmentions can get caught up in your spam filter, though I don't know that I've ever seen a case of Akismet marking anything from brid.gy as spam.

I'd have to dig in to remember if turning off trackbacks/pingbacks also turns off webementions as well...

#
aaronpk
martymcguire[m]: I like it!
#
GWG
Re post, is Amen to the title a thought?
#
aaronpk
Most of the time I don't tweak the syndicated text at all so my site's syndication options that I choose in quill work fine

(you're familiar with the syndication buttons in quill, right?)
#
martymcguire[m]

#
GWG
Bridgy does tell you if publishing is successful, by the way
#
martymcguire[m]
aaronpk: I am! i have been hesitant to use the existing micropub syndication "stack" because I don't actually trust myself to construct posts that work on FB and Twitter the first time.
#
martymcguire[m]
GWG: indeed it does! i didn't mean to imply otherwise. i'll make an edit.
#
aaronpk
like I said, most of the time mine work but now and then I want to hand craft a different version for Twitter
#
aaronpk
i like the idea of the syndication tool!
#
GWG
Any idea on Syndication previews for Micropub as an extension?
#
aaronpk
and Micropub update is a great way to add the syndicated URL afterwards
#
GWG
That might be doable.
#
martymcguire[m]
i almost scrapped my post when i saw the syndication updates as part of the micropub spec, haha
#
aaronpk
The mini built-in Micropub client in p3k has a field to add syndication urls, which is what I do after I manually post one on Twitter for whatever reason

#

also martymcguire[m], you probably already know, but just in case, re "Brid.gy has no mechanism for informing my site that the new syndicated post is available," if you bridgy publish via webmention, it includes the syndicated post url in the response. https://brid.gy/about#response

GWG: I heard in master it's better, so maybe my next update will be the last time it breaks :)
#

It is in the development version though
#
GWG
singpolyma, I discovered that you needed to support trackbacks to get webmention and had to stop that
#
singpolyma
GWG: oh? You didn't want trackbacks for some reason?
#
GWG
singpolyma, I found it counterintuitive. So in the latest version custom post types have to declare support for webmentions
#
singpolyma
yeah. so, I'll have to add that when I upgrade :) but hopefully then it stays working, since it's very explicit
# [chrisaldrich] joined the channel
#
[chrisaldrich]
GWG: does one need to accept pingbacks/trackbacks to receive webmentions in general. jeremycherfas was having issues this morning, and I wasn't sure if that may have been a problem for him.
#
GWG
singpolyma, I have a Trac ticket open about the fact that you have to declare support for trackbacks to get Pingbacks, also counterintuitive.
#
singpolyma
[chrisaldrich]: on Wordpress with the plugin, normally yes
#
singpolyma
GWG: I mean, they're all considered the same thing. The average Wordpress user doesn't know the names of the tech, they just want to be notified when someone links to them
#
GWG
I want to be able to say what I support.
#
GWG
singpolyma, this is at the developer, not the UI level
#
singpolyma
Right. I mean, it seems odd to support one and not the other, since they're the same at the UI level
#
GWG
singpolyma, I don't think Trackbacks can be saved and they are weighing down Pingbacks by association
#
singpolyma
GWG: Shhh! Are we allowed to admit anything but Webmention exists in here? ;)
#
GWG
I think being able to selectively disable Trackbacks would make people more willing to consider the benefits of Webmentions... some of which apply to Pingbacks
# cweiske joined the channel
#
singpolyma
You know that all the benefits of Webmentions can be applied to any of the other protocols, right? The main-cited "benefit" being checking if they link to you to prevent spam... which you can do no matter what protocol submitted the information to your system. At the bottom they're all just super-light protocols that send a source,dest URL pair to you in some format
#
singpolyma
what you do with that pair is up to you
#
GWG
singpolyma, I've laid out some of my Core WordPress thoughts in recent posts on my site
#
GWG
singpolyma, I tried to suggest Trackbacks be source verified. It just seems like even if the old protocols could be adapted, it is just too hard to overcome perception of them.
#
singpolyma
yeah. weird
#
GWG
I have come to think it will work better to implement something with less baggage.
#
GWG
Originally, the design of the webmention plugin mimicked Pingback design. I have been trying to submit PRs to move away from it in select areas
#
GWG
Like storing the source in author URL
#
singpolyma
Is that not the right place to store it?
#
GWG
It isn't the author URL, it is the source URL.
#
gRegorLove
martymcguire[m]: Have you tried the silo-specific options with Bridgy? https://brid.gy/about#silo-content
#
gRegorLove
Still requires some more work up front to decide what text goes to each silo, though
#
martymcguire[m]
gRegorLove: i have! it works for some of the things i want.
#
GWG
singpolyma: Besides, meta wasn't an option back then, it is now
#
martymcguire[m]
honestly, snarfed's post is right-on - what i want will likely require some serious UI and thar be dragons.

micropub chaining is when you have one micropub endpoint itself use micropub to post to another micropub endpoint, like to POSSE a post to silos, or to a community site or other commons https://indieweb.org/micropub_chaining

The term Micropub chaining always seemed more confusing to me than what's actually happening there
# Gold joined the channel
#
sknebel
martymcguire[m]: from a UI perspective, closest to what you describe I've seen is posting UI that has extra fields for each syndication post content, but I have only seen that on WP sites that used neither bridgy publish nor Micropub
# tbbrown joined the channel
#
snarfed
yup, e.g. jetpack and SNAP. also *lots* more UI examples of this outside indieweb, notably in bigger (often commercial) CMSes used by online publishers.
#
martymcguire[m]
sknebel: i've seen that pattern several times myself
#
martymcguire[m]
i have a complication that sometimes my "POSSE" version of a post is more like a teaser with a link back to the post
#
martymcguire[m]
and those can't always be syndicated until the post actually exists at the eventual URL
#
sknebel
martymcguire[m]: as in, you want to include a link to the post at a chosen location in the posse'd post?
#
martymcguire[m]
sknebel: exactly. another case: i sometimes want FB to pick up the info in my post for the link preview
#
aaronpk
In any case, it's usually good/fine to publish the post on your site first and *then* syndicate it, updating your post with the syndication links later
#
aaronpk
nothing about POSSE says you should tweet it first before it's on your site

!tell martymcguire regarding automatic and/vs manually POSSEing, here is what I do: https://indieweb.org/User:Tantek.com#my_indie_web_setup - feel free to ask me any questions about how any of the auto-posting works etc. I've put a lot of thought into it so that the typical and most common things are nearly completely automated.

Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next

Hey everyone, I'm working on simple site called https://montaigne.io, that allows you to keep tracks of books you've read and also save book notes and quotes (and publish it as personal site optionally). Basically I want to be able to have site like https://sivers.org/book. I'f anyone would like to provide me some feedback, I'd appreciate it (I still have struggles understanding how NOT to lock data and put user in

M-podviaznikov
control, so I would like to discuss that with someone)
#
tantek_
welcome M-podviaznikov!
#
tantek_
what is GoodReads?
#
Loqi
Goodreads is a silo for keeping track of books, reviews, and reading progress https://indieweb.org/Goodreads
#
tantek_
is your site like Goodreads?
#
M-podviaznikov
yeah, it is a bit like Goodreads which I was using for a while and then realized that I don't want to give my data there. Also I think Goodreads didn't have notes/quotes/highlights at a time - which I wanted to manage myself

cool! built it yourself to scratch your own itch :D

tantek: thanks for the set-up notes! i have a few different workflows that could stand to be documented!
#

nice work martymcguire!
#

martymcguire I encourage you to document your "indie web setup" on your user page as well! Feel free to copy from mine :)

tantek_: thanks! i'll take a crack at an "indie web setup" section on my user page sometime tomorrow. it should be a good exercise.
# tantek_ joined the channel
#
tantek_
it is definitely a good exercise. writing it down made me confront where are the awkward / needs to improve steps in my workflow
#
tantek_
anyone here care at all about /federation? I'm going to take a crack at expanding the page a bit with a Why, How to, and indieweb examples

M-podviaznikov: There are a bunch of us doing somewhat similar things. There are examples at /read.

Reminds me I need to get back to automating posting of highlights, notes and marginalia a bit more for posts like: http://boffosocko.com/2012/06/17/big-history/

I've updated /federation - please take a look!

I'm doing some historical research on indieweb federation, and while I know the first federated comment thread was done via pingback+h-entry, I'm not wondering when the first webmention+h-entry comment thread happened
#

just made the first step towards a php activitystreams library :D
#
miklb
not sure who manages http://activitystrea.ms but may want to update the section with "already adopted by". Gowalla has been gone for a long time.

gRegorLove
It did on his main site, so probably
#

more updates to /federation
#
tantek_
in particular, I tried to write a quick summary of how to federate posts, mentions, and following
#
tantek_
a lot of this is stuff we already do on the indieweb, just reworded in language that folks who are into federation will hopefully better understand
#
tantek_
also distinguished the early indieweb federation success with pingback vs what we now do with webmention
#
tantek_
what is federation?
#
Loqi
federation in the context of the indieweb refers to services and features on indieweb sites that work directly with other indieweb sites peer-to-peer, without being bottlenecked by any kind of centralized service or silo https://indieweb.org/federation
#
tantek_
what is federated social web?
#
Loqi
The phrase Federated Social Web may refer to: https://indieweb.org/federated_social_web

#

what is federated social web?
#
Loqi
The phrase Federated Social Web may refer to several things, including federation with social standards, the Federated Social Web Summit event(s), 2010-era social web efforts https://indieweb.org/Federated_Social_Web
#
tantek_
better
#
tantek_
thanks gRegorLove - I figure some of that may be visible in the webmention page history, and perhaps some of it is also visible in the first few IndieWeb Examples on the Webmention page which hopefully are comments on each others's posts
#
tantek_
either way - definitely let us know what you find! I expect something mid-2013

jeremycherfas welcome to the internet ;)
#
jeremycherfas
Yeah. Nothing new in that.
#
tantek_
gRegorLove - interesting. looks like that was back before we started more thoroughly adding "IndieWeb Examples" sections
#
tantek_
a-ha this is the raw dated list which we may have added after the fact https://indieweb.org/Webmention-developer#IndieWeb_Examples
#
gRegorLove
Yeah, that dated listed originated on /webmention iirc, moved there in recent months
#
tantek_
right, I moved it, leaving the "nice looking" ones in place on /Webmention for broader audience appeal
#
tantek_
looks like aaronpk may have been the first to implement receiving and showing webmentions on 2013-05-26
#
tantek_
and the first person to start sending after that (who presumably could have federated a comment to aaronpk) was benwerd on 2013-05-31
#
tantek_
so now the goal is to find a post on aaronparecki.com on 2013-05-26 or later that shows a comment from benwerd as of 2013-05-31 or later
#

[Aaron Parecki] @benwerd Check out the microformats-2 parser on http://pin13.net if you want to preview how it'll be parsed! #indieweb
#
gRegorLove
First I've found *to* benwerd
#
gRegorLove
Unfortunately the in-reply-to on benwerd's site is 404
#
tantek_
perhaps in internet archive?
#
tantek_
dang. and this is why we now auto-internet-archive everything we webmention now :)
#
gRegorLove
Actually, it's 410 not 404
#
tantek_
interesting, deleted? well internet archive does have some of those posts https://web-beta.archive.org/web/*/http://werd.io/view//*
#
Loqi
[Aaron Parecki] @benwerd Seems reasonable to me! When I send a mention to a URL I'm going to do the discovery to find that page's webmention endpoint anyway. #webmention...
