#
Zegnat
sl007, I am trying to remember … I feel like they may have had live-Q&As and things like that limited to Facebook, but hard to say
#
sl007
Zegnat - the thing here is that it was the main news block *only* on FB and it is totally against the law ….
#
Zegnat
I am assuming it will also be available on their website once the website is no longer offline though?
#
Zegnat
But news broadcasters really need to work on their fallbacks. I remember how long the NOS was down when their HQ (Hilversum) was under threat of attack, they really weren’t prepared to switch to their emergency set-up (The Hague, I believe). Which means they wouldn’t have been ready in case of a war/natural disaster/any other thing where these back

@Zegnat very good question. First, do you have a suggestion of how to do this?
#
ScalaWilliam
@Zegnat: Second, this is part of a broader locking problem. It appears that everyone starts working without confirmation, and cause of that I can't lock. This then leads to GitHub being an inflexible silo and needing a proper replacement :-)
#
Zegnat
ScalaWilliam, I don’t really have any ideas. It was just something I through of when seeing your link in the chat backlog this morning.
#
Zegnat
I.e. I saw someone had taken up the job, I see you ask them to make sure they add microformats. I am like “well, I could add microformats, but someone else is already on it”.

ah that. I can separate it into another Work Issue to be frank.

ScalaWilliam
maybe there was too much scope.

TheGillies: that isn't *easy*, installing known on your own server isn't easy.
#
dgold
installing plugins isn't easy - its easier than writing your own, but you can't say that its a simple process
#
ScalaWilliam
@Zegnat since the homepage is probably the most important bit, and lacks microformats, can you make an issue with your suggestions for the homepage? That's $5 for creating proper scope & then I'll see how much I can pay for it. More info here -> http://work.scalawilliam.com/rules/

spends his lunch wondering how he would do h-card on scalawilliam.com
#
ScalaWilliam
: D
#
Zegnat
Mostly puzzling with your template system. I would recommend including the email address in the h-card on the homepage and use the existing header stuff too. But the existing header stuff is included on all pages and the email address isn’t part of that same template file.
#
Zegnat
Interesting challenge
#
ScalaWilliam
Yep. I'd include the e-mail in header & add display:none to it - & create a separate issue to add a visible e-mail icon to the header.
#
ScalaWilliam
but adding a h-card for the whole page makes sense too.
#
ScalaWilliam
I'm out for >30m
#
Zegnat
I am having lunch. I might PR the h-feed though, depending on time
#

dgold
i'm bumping off an established problem - the p-name of a 'note' post
#
dgold
the 'simplest' solutions isn't working - per jeremy's post referring to my reply-to his post, the p-name as == p-content means that the p-content is being posted twice
#
dgold
my notes use the unux epoch date of the post as a determinant of their url; would that be acceptable as a p-name for a 'note'?
#
Zegnat
dgold what do you mean by “posted twice”?
#
Zegnat
The p-name on same container as p-content (or e-content) has been a long standing practice.
#
Zegnat
Are you talking about https://ascraeus.org/micro/1501178407/ dgold? The name and content property are different on that post though. Unless you changed the markup already.

Loqi
[Jeremy Cherfas] Not giving up on IndieWeb
#
dgold
I'm working on the author name stuff not coming through, that's my messup, but the content twice thing seems to be related to p-name == e-content
#
Zegnat
It shouldn’t be. If it is, that’s a bug for voxpelli to look into
#
Zegnat
AAh, dgold, the problem is that p-name and e-content are *not* the same there
#
Zegnat
p-name includes “replying to a post on www.jeremycherfas.net”, e-content does not
#
Zegnat
Therefor the webmention receiver thinks there is a separate name and post content
#
dgold
aaaaaahhhhhhhh
#
Zegnat
If you put the p-name class on the same element as your e-content that should be fixed
#
Zegnat
(And, if voxpelli’s service supports update webmentions, you can then just resend the mention and it’ll be fixed on jeremycherfas’ site)
#
dgold
I was so thrilled to get the 'replying to...' working, I forgot that it would change things around
#
ScalaWilliam
oh nice @Zegnat, where did you post this issue?
#
dgold
Zegnat: so, i should explicitly mark out the p-name on the e-content?
eli_oat joined the channel
#
Loqi
[Zegnat] #10 When should u- values be normalised to absolute URLs?

anyone know of a micropub client that has syndicate-to for likes?
KevinMarks joined the channel
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: I thought syndicate-to does not depend on the post-type
#
[miklb]
well, for instance Quill doesn’t have option to syndicate on likes
#
KartikPrabhu
hmm that's odd.because the micropub client does not do the syndication directly. It tells your server that you want to syndicate
#
[miklb]
it’s a UI thing mostly
[kevinmarks] joined the channel
#
KartikPrabhu
yeah, I wonder why aaronpk decided not to have syndication UI for likes
#
[miklb]
I recall discussing it with him, don’t remember the decision. Said it was possibly something he’d add in future.
#
[miklb]
I mostly want it so I can star GitHub repos
#
[kevinmarks]
calumryan Martin offered the seed media office too

Ohhh good to know.... I would like to star GitHub repos ??
#

I've used bridge publish but not silo.pub so I'll have to take a look
#
[miklb]
Suppose I should do I know can star
#
[miklb]
S/do/to
#
[eddie]
I am planning to add syndication to liking in Indigenous but it might happen via Micropub update rather than Micropub create... I know that's not widely used though ? unless I just added a built in delay, maybe I'll do that, then you could add tags and syndication into the create option rather than the update
KevinMarks joined the channel
#
[miklb]
hmm. replying to an issue with syndication-to didn’t seem to work.
#
[miklb]
I wonder if because I have u-in-reply-to instead of just in-reply-to?
#
sknebel
[miklb]: in a page or in a micropub request?
#
KartikPrabhu
u-in-reply-to is the microformat, not in-reply-to. unless silo.pub looks for rel-in-reply-to which is the old way
#
[miklb]
well, I have a syndicate-to endpoint for silo.pub GH, and the note it creates on my site with u-in-reply-to
wolftune joined the channel
#
[miklb]
docs only mention in-reply-to
#
[miklb]
I could be completely misunderstanding the whole process
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: silo.pub is looking for the equivalent of the parsed microormat which is in-reply-to
#
KartikPrabhu
so your HTML markup will have u-in-reply-to but the API call to silo.pub will have in-reply-to
#
[miklb]
so I’m not sure how to debug that. I believe my markup is fine.
#
sknebel
[miklb]: the markup isn't involved, what matters is the request you sent to the silo.pub endpoint
#
sknebel
(the markup on the sitE)
#
[miklb]
it’s coming from Quill…
#
KartikPrabhu
Quill should not give you a "u-in-reply-to" anyway (I think)
gigitux joined the channel
#
[miklb]
sorry, u-in-reply-to is on the note created.
#
KartikPrabhu
[miklb]: right, that is HTML markup on your site. But silo.pub will use the micropub API syntax which does not have the "u" i.e. it is like the parsed microformat
#
sknebel
also, it's your micropub endpoint calling silo.pub when you use syndicate-to, not Quill
sl007 joined the channel
#
[miklb]
ok, too confusing for me. scraping that idea for a while. Thanks for everyone’s help trying to explain.
#
sknebel
sounds like the issue might be wordpress specific or at least involves knowledge about how the WP plugins to do stuff, so sadly I have no idea about the details
#
GWG
Did someone say WordPress?
#
[miklb]
I was trying to use silo.pub as a syndicate-to endpoint for GitHub using Quill and I’m failing.
#
GWG
[miklb]: You'd need to add it as a target.
#
[miklb]
yes, it shows up in Quill
#
[miklb]
but it doesn’t make it to GH
#
[miklb]
I don’t know where to look for an error. I don’t see anything in my nginx error log related to it
#
[miklb]
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

oh, I know what it might be. The in-reply-to url isn’t being added to the post from micropub. Would need to manually mark it up until post-kinds auto-retrieves

yes. I think I then don't understand what you mean

that’s how I feel. I see a lot of stuff (wordpress plugins/themes) that have the u-in-reply-to on a containing element and u-url on the href.

I assume with a nested h-cite then?
KevinMarks_ joined the channel
#
[miklb]
I can’t find any markup examples that’s not riddled with code to follow the logic.
#
[miklb]
what is h-cite
#
Loqi
h-cite is the microformats2 vocabulary for marking up citations and references on web sites https://indieweb.org/h-cite
#
[miklb]
/reply-context seems to have oneI
#
[miklb]
I stand corrected. Just wasn’t on the reply page that I could see linked.
#
sknebel
but in short, u-in-reply-to on a h-cite just means "use the url property of the h-cite as the value for in-reply-to"
#
sknebel
(and in general, the same for any u-... property and any nested microformat)
#
sknebel
and feel free to add the reply-context example (or a link to it) to where it makes sense to you on /reply
#
[miklb]
I see the link now much further down the page, just a lot to digest on the main /reply page
