Today's goal in #indieweb is take my syllabus, originally built on a Skeleton framework and update it to CSS grid. May try to do a sticky navigation at the top rather than a horizontal nav menu in each section. CSS grid isn't bad. See how day two of learning goes

It looks like we don't have a page for "Piwik" yet. Would you like to create it? (Or just say "Piwik is ____", a sentence describing the term)

Piwik is [[Matomo]]

[zegnat] I am not either except what Jetpack does and I don't check those, to me good content better community equals more readers, but I don't have to sustain myself as a blogger. Iam sure if it is how I fed my kids I would pay more attention
#
Zegnat
Does Jetpack do that within the local WP install or does it communicate the stats externally?
#

it seems to stay intenral though they do collect data from thrid party cookies:

but its best way to syndicated to LinkedIn and Twitter. Bridgy only works when replying to a spcific tweet I think
#

last WordPress related comment in this channel, though I heard that when syndicting through JetPack it uses different metadata and does not include microformats, again what I heard and not what I understand
#
Zegnat
If JetPack suits your needs, who cares about the “microformats”? ;)

Zegnat: I used/tried Piwik, it's fine, but it was grinding slow for me; for WordPress, there's a selfhosted analytics plugin, Slimstat, which is very good

[zegnat] the whole point of my two week WordPress only experiment is to decide if I just want to move my site to a small static site with a lighterweight blogging solution on a subdomain. I like using Known for microblogging but want to try a MicroPub client with WordpPress. I tried micro.blog but it seemed more iOS focuses than me but it is still supported to that is a plus
#
jgmac1106
[petermolnar] what are yu using for syndication then? None? If I remember correctly you don’t syndicate content in two places correct?
wolftune, KartikPrabhu and friedcell joined the channel
#
petermolnar
jgmac1106: I experimented a lot with syndication; these days, I use bridgy to flickr, and that's it. While I was using WP, I ended up with SNAP, but I was very close to write my own solution based on Keyring.
#
petermolnar
what is SNAP?
#
Loqi
SNAP (Social Network Auto Poster) is a POSSE plugin for WordPress https://indieweb.org/SNAP

I am trying to use Quill to post to my Micro.blog. I can sign in, but when I try to post I am getting a 400 error with the following info at the end
#
[kim_landwehr]
{"error":"invalid_request","error_description":"No verified site could be found for token."}. I am not sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated
#
aaronpk
hm, sounds like a micro.blog issue
jjuran, vivus and gRegorLove joined the channel
#
[kim_landwehr]
So it is on their end an not mine?
#
aaronpk
ultimately yes, you should never have been able to get into this situation. tho there might be something you can do about it. for example I can't remember whether you're supposed to type your micro.blog/username URL or your actual blog URL when logging in to quill with a micro.blog account
#
aaronpk
but it should have been able to handle this regardless
[grantcodes] and [eddie] joined the channel
#
[eddie]
When logging in to Quill you should log in with your blog url, so http://username.micro.blog
#
aaronpk
[eddie]: and is that true even if you have a custom domain?
#
[eddie]
ohh hmm

I just found a bug with site verification in Micro.blog... I think to accept Micropub requests from Quill with custom domains the site has to be verified. Just fixed it. [kim_landwehr], mind trying again?
#
[manton]
I introduced this problem while making site verification more robust a couple days ago. Sorry I didn't catch it earlier.
#
[kim_landwehr]
Yes that worked!
#
[kim_landwehr]
Thanks [manton]
#
[manton]
Great!
#
[manton]
It's an open question whether M.b should be strict about site verification from Quill. It's probably unnecessary.
#
aaronpk
what does "verified" mean in this context?
#
[manton]
It just means there's a rel tag on your site that points to your Micro.blog profile.
#
[manton]
Which is usually automatic for all Micro.blog-hosted sites.

"Heavily engineered" is a generous explanation 🙂

It also doesn't seem to actually support any actual services yet.
