Understandably there’s some hesitation at this point to have a kitchen sink WP plugin, including the existing IndieWeb WordPress plugin. My latest crazy idea is a new “IndiePack” plugin that would auto-install the primary plugins for those looking for a more one-click. I’d love any thoughts https://github.com/indieweb/wordpress-uf2/issues/29#issuecomment-311222003
#
Loqi
[miklb] So another idea that came to me this evening. A whole new plugin, IndiePack if you will, that is that one click install all the things for someone who wants that and leave the IndieWeb plugin as is with an a la carte install option. Would just be a m...

[miklb]
would “Contributing to Content” and “Primary Content” be representative labels for radio buttons for u-featured and u-photo?
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: what's represnetative labels mean?
#
[miklb]
I’m adding a field to the WP image attachment screen to allow user to add either u-featured or u-photo class. Instead of just calling the buttons by mf2 name, was trying to come up with a label to differentiate between the 2.
#
KartikPrabhu
how about, "use as photo content" and "use as featured image"
#
KartikPrabhu
also u-photo can be u-featured so they are not mutually exclusive
#
[miklb]
WordPress has a separate “Featured Image” thing.
KevinMarks joined the channel
#
[miklb]
OK, now I’m confused. I understood the explanation to be that it was binary.
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: no. u-photo is for the primary photo content. u-featured is for any image that is a representative image for the post. you can have a photo post where one of the images is used as a representative
#
gRegorLove
KartikPrabhu: Are there examples of u-photo also being u-featured? I don't follow that example
#
[miklb]
what is featured
#
Loqi
featured is a proposed mf2 property (typically as u-featured) for h-entry that indicates a representative image for a primarily textual post https://indieweb.org/featured
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb], gRegorLove here is an example: https://kartikprabhu.com/articles/facets-visions the third image is a u-photo (since it is a photo post) and also u-featured
#
Loqi
[Kartik Prabhu] Facets & Visions
#
KartikPrabhu
it is the image used in my feed as a featured image here https://kartikprabhu.com/articles
#
[miklb]
so that dfn for featured needs to be changed? “representative image for primarily textual post”
#
gRegorLove
I don't think the dfn needs to change; seems more like an edge case example.
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: oh! yeah maybe. but i don't know if anyone does this. I always thought of u-featured as any representative example
#
gRegorLove
Important question to keep in mind with microformats is "what's consuming it, and what are those consumers doing with it?"
#
KartikPrabhu
I don't see why u-photo and u-featured are exclusive
#
KartikPrabhu
h-cite and h-entry are not exclusive
#
KartikPrabhu
so who cares
#
gRegorLove
u-featured on a post full of photos is like selecting a cover image for a collection, so it's corollary to u-featured for text.
#
[miklb]
I’m just the new guy ? That’s how I understood the explanations.
#
KartikPrabhu
gRegorLove: yeah, that is how I treat them
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: new opinions are important too ;)
#
gRegorLove
The WordPress UI for featured photos is a really common use case, so I think you're on the right track miklb
#
[miklb]
KartikPrabhu Sure, I’m full of them ? Just not on the semantics of u-photo vs u-featured.
#
KartikPrabhu
iirc the "featured" name for the vocabulary was derived from the wordpress use
AngeloGladding joined the channel
#
[miklb]
gRegorLove the thing is, attaching a featured image can be a very different thing than inserting a photo into a post and wanting it to POSSE. I’m trying to tackle from real world expectations.
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: in wordpress it is
#
[miklb]
I mean, for my personal site, I attach a featured image to articles, and then have a function to apply u-featured to those images. But may also write a note and want to POSSE an image with it. I understand and am comfortable editing the class. Those reliant on the RTE, that’s not as much an option.
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: my point was that "it can be different, but does not *have* to be different"
#
KartikPrabhu
the image
#
[miklb]
I’m lost now
#
KartikPrabhu
the featured image can be different from the photos but it does not have to be different
#
KartikPrabhu
you can pick one of the photos as featured too
#
gRegorLove
I'm getting lost too, heh
#
KartikPrabhu
like gRegorLove said it is like picking a photo from an album to be the featured one
#
gRegorLove
Ah, think I'm caught up.
#
[miklb]
that’s totally cool. I was just going by the wiki definition
#
KartikPrabhu
you could pick an existing photo frpom the album or pick an entirely different one
#
gRegorLove
I guess I'm suggesting miklb not worry about that scenario since it seems less common and might make for more confusing UX in WP
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: yeah, the wiki dfn emphasises the "textual post" a bit too much i suppose
j_juran joined the channel
#
KartikPrabhu
gRegorLove: yeah also fair
#
[miklb]
Well, I could make them checkboxes, but I’m trying to simplify it for a user less familiar with mf2 classes on images. If it’s confusing in a conversation between us, imagine just wanting their photo from their blog post to show up on Facebook.
#
[miklb]
Not going to care too much if u-featured also applies to a gallery of u-photo
#
[miklb]
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: this is my usage. might not be consensus
#
gRegorLove
"I want to post a photo on my site and to [social site]" is a good use-case. And "I want to post an article that has a featured image" is a good use-case
#
gRegorLove
Start with those and you've covered a lot of situations.
#
KartikPrabhu
yeah I agree
#
gRegorLove
I *think* the only consumer of u-photo right now is /this-week newsletter
#
KartikPrabhu
for POSSE
#
gRegorLove
Ah, right, of course. haah
#
KartikPrabhu
I don't think bridgy uses u-featured though
#
[miklb]
that’s basically how I’m looking at it. But article with an image inserted isn’t same as a WP featured image, thus why I’d like to allow them to add u-featured to such.
#
[miklb]
It does
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: it does? how?
#
[miklb]
add u-featured or u-photo to a post and both will POSSE
#
KartikPrabhu
aah interesting!
#
gRegorLove
That's why I said "article that has a featured image", not just one with an image in the post body
#
KartikPrabhu
i have never POSSEd article to Twitter so I didn't realise that
#
KartikPrabhu
through Bridgy I mean
#
Loqi
[tantek] #741 Bridgy Publish to Twitter should consider u-featured fallback for u-photo for article use-case
#
KartikPrabhu
maybe I'll try that next tomorrow when my futured article goes live
#
gRegorLove
Always learning new Bridgy tricks. :)
#
gRegorLove
Speaking of, it was rad to meet Doctor Bridgy (snarfed) himself this weekend.
#
GWG
Someone buy him that t-shirt
#
[miklb]
so that’s why I was asking if Contributing to Content and Primary Content would be a layman explanation of what class to apply
#
[miklb]
for the labels
#
gRegorLove
"Contributing to Content" sounds a bit clunky to me
#
KartikPrabhu
wants to meet Dr. Bridgy!
#
gRegorLove
[miklb]: How about "Make this the featured image for the post" and "Make this photo the primary content of the post"?
#
gRegorLove
Sleep time for me. G'night!
#
[miklb]
Kinda a lot of text for a radio button, was trying to be concise. Not a lot of real estate. Planning on having some contributing text though.

Open question: what (useful) information about someone would you want to store in an address book? Wondering if their are any obvious h-card extensions we are forgetting.
ricmac_ joined the channel
#
Loqi
h-card
#
sknebel
Zegnat: I have in prototypes new ones for h-card, but they are about the location aspect, not the person aspect
#
sknebel
further contact ways (e.g. messenger contacts, silo urls) come to mind
#
tantek
all URLs
#
Zegnat
Would you really record more location aspect stuff than h-adr for a person, sknebel?
#
Zegnat
Not asking about the mf implementation. Just the use-case. You can mf-up anything you want later.
#
sknebel
Zegnat: that's what I said, they are not for person h-cards
#
tantek
what is an address book
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "address book" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
Zegnat
Ooh, now I get you! for h-cards for venues/locations
#
sknebel
well, I didn't say it clearly. they are more relevant for orgs/venues
#
tantek
Zegnat, maybe start documenting your "want to store in an address book" use-cases in /address-book ?

what is contacts
#

contacts refers to a set of people, organizations, groups and anything else with one or more addresses (often URLs) for communication https://indieweb.org/contacts

tantek
address book is /contacts
#
Zegnat
Added to todo list.
#
sknebel
tantek: so you'd e.g. store all rel=me's on a persons home page in their h-card as url?
#
Zegnat
Funny how that in no way lists “finding a person’s contact information” as a usecase!
#
tantek
Zegnat: because ideally they store that on their on /contact page instead of you storing an out of date cache in your own personal storage
#
tantek
an address book really should just be 1 list of URLs of people, 2 cache of information from those URLs

As soon as more people start putting their mailing addresses online that would work. For now, I have to keep a local address book.
#
sknebel
Zegnat: and I guess aditional location properties should also be an option for h-adr. good point
#
tantek
then 4 private/offline contact information (given to you privately or when offline, perhaps things not to even sync to default phone addressbooks - because those get compromised etc.)
#
Zegnat
My addressbook does not get synct exactly for that reason, yes :)
#
tantek
that's worth capturing too - things to explicitly NOT do
#
tantek
or perhaps Privacy Features

Interesting thought experiment. I take online classes. Of course, the traditional experience in Online Classes nowadays is general once a week or every other week you post in a “Discussion Board” forum, and then you’ll reply to each others posts in some way, generally with some set criteria. So it’s a decent length post of your own thoughts but it’s done “in reply” to another discussion board.
#
[eddie]
I’ve been POSSE-ing my discussion board original posts, but not my replies. Now I’m wanting to POSSE my replies and thinking through what they might look like. The post I’m replying to is technically private (locked behind Blackboard’s login)
#
[eddie]
So maybe it’s just specifying the audience like aaronpk has done in the past? Because a “reply” to a private URL doesn’t seem useful
#
[eddie]
and now I’m not sure if this should be here or in #dev, because this could get potentially technicaly
#
aaronpk
if you don't mind your reply being public, i don't think it's terrible to show the in-reply-to URL even if that URL isn't public
jackjamieson joined the channel
#
[eddie]
s/technical/technicaly
#
[eddie]
Yeah, the intention is the reply being public
#
[eddie]
aaronpk with your “audience” have you done both an “audience” and a “in-reply-to”?
#
aaronpk
i like what I've been doing with the "audience" to show who the message is directed to. i think that helps add context to someone who is not in that audience seeing the post
#
aaronpk
[eddie]: yep! in reply to a specific post on a mailing list https://aaronparecki.com/2017/06/11/14/oauth
#
[eddie]
Yeah I think that’s definitely helpful (especially if the reply URL is private)
#
Loqi
[Aaron Parecki] I've seen this done a few ways: • The Device Flow: https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-oauth-device-flow which is what you see on browserless devices like the Apple TV logging in to a cable provider from your phone. A short code is generated ...

Are you extending h-card with d&d attributes?
#
j12t
Question about "vouch": If I blog that spammer.com is a great big spammer (and provide the href to spammer.com), does this make it easier for that spammer to get a comment on tantek's blog? (assuming that Tantek trusts me)
ktoverso joined the channel
#
snarfed
what is nofollow
#
Loqi
nofollow is a rel value meant to stop search engines imputing endorsement from a link https://indieweb.org/nofollow
#
aaronpk
i thought we had a note about using nofollow or something for vouch
#
Zegnat
BigShip, I have almost nothing on my page that is not already publicly available through other channels (living in Sweden gives a lot of stuff about me away)
#
j12t
aaronpk: there's a very minor side note on the wiki. Not sure that nofollow is strong enough as an indicator ...
#
Zegnat
[kevinmarks], will probably be on a separate page. Not sure about going h-card on it yet.
#
BigShip
Zegnat I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I'm just personally uncomfortable with sharing that much info about myself.
#
gRegorLove
ben_thatmustbeme and my vouch implementations ignore links with nofollow
#
BigShip
Trying to identify what I'm comfortable having posted publicly.
#
j12t
nofollow per wikipedia: "...to instruct some search engines that the hyperlink should not influence the ranking of the link's target in the search engine's index"
#
j12t
I'd do it the other way around: mark up links constituting endorsement with a special tag
snarfed joined the channel
#
gRegorLove
/Vouch isn't endorsement, though
#
Zegnat
j12t there are vote links

I'm pretty excited about micropub. Really want to be able to send posts in markdown
ricmac_ joined the channel
#
BigShip
Going to have to figure out a way to do that with microformats though...
#
aaronpk
since there isn't really a canonical markdown, and each site ends up doing it slightly differently, you can just use the plaintext capability of micropub and clients and write markdown in that, rendering it server-side
#
aaronpk
i kind of do that with my own micro-syntax which transforms a few things like @-mentions and bullet lists from asterisks
#
[eddie]
Zegnat: Will do. Yours is very in-depth, but if anything comes to mind I’ll nudge you ? (Does your profile receive webmentions)
dougbeal|iOS joined the channel
#
Zegnat
Yes, it should receive webmentions
#
Zegnat
Unless I broke something
#
BigShip
aaronpk yeah that's the plan. I just have to figure out how I want to handle markdown on the server
#
BigShip
As far as I can tell, the end point I wrote works. I just need to test it with some actual content instead of random `curl` commands
#
Zegnat
BigShip, if you think of any information you would have expected on a profile but are missing on mine, nudge me
#
BigShip
Zegnat I mean, if you really want to fill out that "Too Much Information" section you could add your clothing sizes :D

aaronpk
potentially useful for gift-giving

aaronpk
actually

aaronpk
conference registrations often ask for shirt size
