↩️ Glitch seems cool, sort of like Processing or Scratch or, for us fossils, Hypercard, but I fear the obfuscation of the web platform done got out of the barn, particularly with WebAssembly coming. I dig indieweb tech but copy-paste dev has had its day.

[kevinmarks], that very short title is your title in your feed.

It is also what I see in my feed reader. So that is superfeedr’s source. Maybe check how titles are generated there?

morning all, as you can see playing around with wordpresss. If wanted to ditch Wordpress, tired of playing this plug in breaks that plug in or doesn't work with that theme, where would you head? I would probably take most of my site and build a static website but will want a blogging platform as well

[jgmac1106]
I tried that and then posted a note but it still showed up here: http://jgregorymcverry.com/posts/
#
[jgmac1106]
My goal was to write a filter so only articles show up
#
[jgmac1106]
will keep trying and @gwg everyone thanks you for keeping the hamsters on the wheeels
#
GWG
[jgmac1106]: What are you trying to do?
#
[jgmac1106]
tying to make the posts that load on this page: http://jgregorymcverry.com/posts/
#
[jgmac1106]
only be post_kind article
#
GWG
I think you have the wrong filter.
#
[jgmac1106]
I just want articles to show up on the wrong feed....probablyI am just remixing crap I cut and paste from three different places
#
GWG
You are filtering the RSS, I think
#
GWG
Not the actual page
#
[jgmac1106]
ohh, this where I didn't I thought WP justed used RSS to populate pages when you tell it to display categories on a page for example
#
GWG
No.
#
[jgmac1106]
yeah and searching for filter, feeds, page edits, etc wasn't easy
aexoxea joined the channel
#
GWG
The posts page, how did you configure it?
#
[jgmac1106]
It the stupid changes they keep making to customizer its like a bunch of people are sitting in a room and saying , "how can we remove functionality and increase complexity?"
#
GWG
Did you set the posts to go to a static page under Settings->Reading?
#
[jgmac1106]
yes, but you can't choose a format or post-kind
#
[jgmac1106]
so I then I went and looked at that page in my child theme and then function.php file
#
GWG
Yes, but find the page id of that page, and change, isset($qv['feed']) to that page_id === $qv['p'] and that should do it
#
[jgmac1106]
thx will try
#
sebsel
Can I nudge you guys to #dev ? :)
#
GWG
[jgmac1106]: #wordpress is probably more appropriate.

I flew on them last year, when I left PDX after IWS
#
GWG
[cleverdevil]: Do they block SSH?
#
GWG
JetBlue does
#
[cleverdevil]
Nope, SSH works fine.
#
[cleverdevil]
But, the project requires downloading some of my original photos from cloud storage which is... slow.
#
[cleverdevil]
(In spite of the fact that this is supposedly the "fast" in-flight wifi capable of streaming video.)
#
GWG
[cleverdevil]: Still haven't gotten to your podcast yet. Will though
#
[cleverdevil]
No worries.
#
GWG
[cleverdevil]: What have you been up to, in an indieweb on topic sense?
#
[cleverdevil]
I just ordered a cheap podcasting mic to make future episodes better.
#
GWG
Which one?
#
[cleverdevil]
Blue Snowball.
#
[cleverdevil]
I've been working on three or four projects 😉
#
[cleverdevil]
The one I am working on now is to restore my original personal website to the web, and then import all of the content to my current website.
#
GWG
Fun.
#
GWG
I'm still doing the WordPress thing
#
[cleverdevil]
I've restored all of the text content and about ¾ of the media already, using the wayback machine.
#
[cleverdevil]
But, about 50 photos didn't get archived by the wayback machine.
#
[cleverdevil]
So, I am going through my archived photos and restoring them from there.
#
GWG
I should start doing a Flashback Friday or a Throwback Thursday photo post. I have a lot of photos.
#

#
[cleverdevil]
Yeah, I may upgrade if my microcast catches on.
#
GWG
[cleverdevil]: What are you hoping to accomplish?
#
[cleverdevil]
With the microcast?
#
GWG
[cleverdevil]: Yes. What do you want to do?
#
GWG
I know, my goal in podcasting is to have a nice conversation and share it with others
#
[cleverdevil]
So, I am just not sure I'll be able to get into a rhythm, or find a voice.
#
[cleverdevil]
But, I like the idea of capturing things in lots of different mediums.
#
[cleverdevil]
Its becoming especially clear as I go back and look at photos and videos with my kids from way back in my archives.
#
GWG
[cleverdevil]: You should talk about that
#
[cleverdevil]
Good idea.
#
[cleverdevil]
My next episode will hopefully cover the restoration of my old website.

Sigh. The Wi-Fi on this flight is so painfully slow, I am not going to be able to get through this project on board.
#
[cleverdevil]
I have around 65 photos that were on my old site that didn't get mirrored by the wayback machine.
#
[cleverdevil]
So, I am having to dig through my Photos app for each one, and download the originals from iCloud. I didn't use the same filenames, either, so I have to really guess.
#
[cleverdevil]
That said, I was able to get a Python script done that converts all of the posts into MF2 JSON, ready to post once I am done with the images.

Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "MovableType" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "MovableType is ____", a sentence describing the term)
#
Zegnat
MovableType is [[Movable Type]]
#
[cleverdevil]
I was very pleased with myself back then, being able to run Movable Type locally on my PowerBook.
#
[cleverdevil]
Then running that little Python script to create differential tarballs that were automatically expanded on my web server.
