!tell michael-lewis I noticed that you're indexing search queries on my site (i.e. queries on my own search page, things with a format like `/search/?query=&filter=People & Places` I can see why, I directly link to search queries as a way of surfacing categories and tags, but maybe worth checking for things like `?x=y` URL strings and counting them as duplicates/not indexing them. I dread to think how many potential "pages" my site is if you

Interesting news: long time blogger Andrew Sullivan leaving Intelligencer/New York back to his blog The Dish. Apparently using Substack (to monetize) https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/07/andrew-sullivan-see-you-next-friday.html

If there was a “double block” option that blocked them AND sent you a screenshot of that person’s tweet at you with a clown emoji over it, I think that would help a lot of us get through this lockdown.

A propos the discussion on Profiles, an interesting newsletter issue on custom design of emails and siloed sites being important for some folks. https://tedium.co/2020/07/14/social-media-customization-failings/

Hi all, where do I seek support if I'm having trouble implementing an auth flow on a Micropub client using IndieAuth? Would this be the correct place?

aaronpk
happy to help in #indieweb-dev!

Would I need to be invited? I'm using a Matrix client and it doesn't turn up in the search results...
#
aaronpk
it should be there somewhere but i don't know how matrix works, try looking on https://indieweb.org/discuss for details
#
ThatSummer[m]
Cheers, I managed to get in.

👋 Landed here in a roundabout way from watching [aaronpk]'s ATEM Mini videos which somehow led me to discovering IndieWebCamp 😄

IndieWeb's principles are something that's really started to resonate with me lately as I've been thinking about getting my web presence off the ground again here and looking to be in more control of some of the main pieces
#
[tb]
And selfdogfooding in particular as I'm currently getting my overengineered URL shortener off the ground to use as my personal Rails reference app 😄
#
aaronpk
well you're certainly in the right place!

Hey kind IndieWeb folks… have a user on ThreadReaderApp trying to publish from (ThreadReader) to their blog
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
tried rel=me for Twitter but got a message to say Twitter login no longer support
#
aaronpk
yeah that's true if they're using indieauth.com for indieauth
#
aaronpk
what blog software is it? if wordpress, they should install the indieauth plugin
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
his site is ianbrown.tech
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
WordPress
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
is what he’s using
#
aaronpk
cool yeah using the built in indieauth plugin will be a lot better, no rel=me needed
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
oh I thought he already was using the IndieAuth plugin. Can you tell from the webpage?
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
I’ll ask him
#
aaronpk
that site doesn't load for me
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
on weird
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
the view source show these meta links for me:
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
<link rel=“micropub” href=“https://www.ianbrown.tech/wp-json/micropub/1.0/endpoint” /><link rel=“authorization_endpoint” href=“https://indieauth.com/auth” /><link rel=“token_endpoint” href=“https://tokens.indieauth.com/token” />
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
but I’ve asked him to make sure the IndieAuth plugin is installed (he needs to check with his sys admin)
#
aaronpk
ah www
#
[Cal_ThreadRead]
oh sorry!
#
aaronpk
hey GWG ^^ let's chat about this in #indieweb-wordpress

snarfed: not sure if anyone noticed that HTTP 451 for that takedown looks like a reference to _Fahrenheit 451_ 🤣

hi.
#
[chrisaldrich]
good morning cambridgeport90[
#
[chrisaldrich]
is your site back up?
#
cambridgeport90[
I know the last couple of messages seemed confusing. Thought messages weren't going through, but turns out my desktop client was just trying and taking forever to catch up. In Chrome for now, and everything seems to be working?
#
cambridgeport90[
And to answer your question, nope, unfortunately not. My infrastructure is going through a huge transition; my friend's putting a new router in our datacenter rack (he just got three of them from work) ... so ... I will let you guys know.

Looks like it's working. I'll await it's return. There was a link to something the other day I wanted to read, but I saw it was down. I'll be patient...

I don't remember atm, but I'm sure it's bookmarked somewhere... 🙂

Don't worry. I kept all the pages and stuff ... so ... I use Wordpress, like you. My menu isn't as good as yours is, but getting there.

I'm not sure I'd call my menu good. 🤣
#
[chrisaldrich]
It's always on my list of things to tweak, but I can never bring myself to do something better/different.
#
cambridgeport90[
The other thing I haven't yet done, though I intend to is to actually explore the PHP files under a Wordpress install. It will be easier once I'm running on my own Plesk server rather than on someone else's infrastructure. (SolidCP sucks.)

Does my Beaker sync more effectively with hyperdrives in my address book?
#
zootella
I've noticed that Blabbity Blog combines "follow" with "add to address book"
#
zootella
If you made a Blabbity Blog-style app that had its own list of hyperdrives to follow, without adding them to the address book, would followed posts load more slowly, take longer to appear up to date, things generally not work as well, etc.?

Are people doing anything in particular to detect fake/synthetic authors from any webmention comments /responses they receive? E.g. image analysis per https://www.reuters.com/article/us-cyber-deepfake-activist-idUSKCN24G15E
#
cambridgeport90[
I honestly never thought about such a thing, unfortunately. I will though for the next time my site goes back up.

I have noticed an uptick in relatively new Twitter accounts with scant bio details and photos following me lately. They're tweeting and mostly retweeting some pretty plain vanilla content at the moment to look like they're organic, but I feel like they're more likely the start of a Twitter bot network leading up to the election....
