jgmac1106, Here's the WordPress webmention approval thing I mentioned: https://gregorlove.com/2017/12/one-of-the-known-issues/

[gRegor Morrill] One of the known issues with webmentions in WordPress is that they are often flagged as spam by default. There is a workaround snippet of code on the wiki to automatically approve them. That got me thinking about the core feature of approving comment...
#
Loqi
[gRegor Morrill] I’ve updated this code snippet so it abides by your Discussion settings for the checkbox “Comment author must have a previously approved comment.” I’ve also updated it to use the webmention_source_url which is part of the comment meta data p...

I’ve just understood why http://brid.gy did not syndicate to twitter! 1. There wasn’t a read-more link on the note 2. http://Brid.gy wasn’t crawling the permalink 3. Single template contained the syndication link. (https://fireburn.ru/note/1542275622/)

and now it... works? i guess

when I send it manually

ok I'll just set up my CI to send webmentions to brid.gy specifically

Another thing that was not working for some reason is http://mention.tech #webmention support - it didn’t see the link outside of note’s e-content. Could this even be considered as a bug? Since it’s kinda working as intended… #indieweb (https://fireburn.ru/note/1542276854/)

I can tweak that - I know we've had back and forth about this. My naive first attempt was webmentioning all the nav links, but I may have overcorrected.

In what cases are multiple top-level items in parsed MF2 not actually a feed not explicitly marked up as such?
#
aaronpk
My websites permalinks
#
aaronpk
there's a top level h-entry followed by an h-card which is in my website footer
#
GWG
Okay, more than 2?
#
GWG
I can special case 2
#
GWG
I'm trying to write rules to decide if a site is a feed or not
#
GWG
In your case, one of the two would have a url property that matches the page it is in
#
GWG
My plan was to check if one matches the page's URL and then look at the rest of them separately.
#
aaronpk
That's a good plan
swentel_, swentel and [tmiller] joined the channel
#
GWG
aaronpk, to looked at your xray code, but I am approaching it differently
#
GWG
I want to have different rules for whether I am looking for a feed or not
#
GWG
But two h-feeds on the same page confuse me as to how to handle
#
sknebel
you could see ifthe feeds have urls/uids
[jgmac1106] joined the channel
#
[jgmac1106]
Gwg does having rss feeds on a page also mess this up or you only talking mf2 parsers? I embed a lot of rss feeds on my site....but usually in iframe so probably easy to ignore as I type this
#
GWG
No, RSS feeds are easy
#
GWG
sknebel, I need to file an issue with tantek then
#
GWG
He has two h-feeds. A uid or name would help
#
GWG
jgmac1106, anything with a unique URL is fine
#
GWG
The issue here is two h-feeds in the same page and distinguishing between them
#
jgmac1106
waiting for day to be able to pay for Aperture upgrade to embed feeds on my own websites
#
GWG
jgmac1106, if you wait, you could use Yarns
#
aaronpk
what do you mean embed feeds?
#
aaronpk
oh interesting
#
aaronpk
kind of like if you could embed this? https://stream.indieweb.org/
#
aaronpk
that's a channel in my aperture
#
jgmac1106
exactly I embed and switch out channels all the time as I go to conferences, teach, etc
#
jgmac1106
or just wanna make a channel of all my places….I mean I guess I couild just wrap https://stream.indieweb.org/ in an iframe
#
aaronpk
Nice yeah. I make channels for conferences too, didn't think about wanting to share those back out
#
jgmac1106
not sure your plans for aperture but the ability to embed feeds, and then the ability to customize that appearance, is often two tiers in feed reader pricing
#
sknebel
could even be a mini-feedreader without UI and tokens with restricted access
#
sknebel
doesn't need support in the backend (well, the restricted tokens do I guess)
#
jgmac1106
what I was thinking @sknebel…people could then interact with content on my site, from their site, without leaving my site
#
jgmac1106
I know folks aren’t keen on cards, (see it mroe a challenge of writing symmetrically rather than design just as hard), but trying to learn how to make cards in CSS Grid: https://jgmac1106homepage.glitch.me be cool to toggle between a card view and a list view…for folks on the highest pricing tier….again if that is goal

[swentel] Drupal got a h/t for accessibility standards from [arush] last night. She noted alot of the a11y looking at Drupal given everything going on in WordPress community
#
swentel
yeah they're doing a good job
#
petermolnar
Zegnat: I rewrote the whole thing. It now has 3 radiobuttons, only activated if JS is available (given it needs JS to change, which is really not ideal, but I haven't found a way around this yet), can do auto/dark/light; if auto, it removes the localstorage entry, otherwise it respects user setting, if any
#
GWG
swentel, another location thought, sorry
#
swentel
no problem :)

I am going to do something in 2 weeks so I have a use case

#
jgmac1106
gwg it was nice to here that Amanda said 2016-IndieWeb is in pretty good shape and most of the accessibility issues left are beyond your control
#
swentel
GWG, so populate the location into the textbox if found then ?
#
swentel
or show it if reverse location failed?
#
GWG
Yes, I might want to edit it
#
GWG
But if you don't want to add a lookup, I can manually fill in a description
#
swentel
oh I want to add the lookup
#
swentel
will make a setting from it
#
swentel
just need to find the time :)
#
swentel
pretty busy atm
#
swentel
GWG, is the post property simply location ?
#
swentel
if you could tell me that on the issue, that would be great
#
swentel
because I will work on it next week
#
swentel
for a quick fix bug release
#
swentel
so I can add the textbox already

swentel
(and with some luck maybe full reverse, but no promises there)

You’re welcome to add any Micropub queries that you like, but I wonder if reverse geolookup doesn’t match the Micropub query purpose?
[chrisaldrich] and jackjamieson joined the channel
#
sknebel
one benefit: it could use knowledge the site has, e.g. locations the user is typically at
eli_oat, [dave] and jackjamieson joined the channel
#
[eddie]
That's a good point. There could be custom location knowledge. Which makes sense because all the reverse geocoders think I live in a place called iijamsville but I'm actually in a place called Urbana. So I could just use an external reverse geocoder for most locations but for a custom area around my neighborhood I could detect and return Urbana
#
[eddie]
That's actually pretty interesting
#
[eddie]
Using custom location names and previous checkins and such
#
[eddie]
You could also return "home" within a specific geo-threshold of your house rather than using your city name too

So this is pretty cool. I wanted to test some queries on my website's cache. Since it's sqlite, I downloaded an app on my iPad, used an FTP app to download and import the sqlite file from my web server and opened it in the app! Now I have a local copy of my database cache I can test queries out with 😄
#
[eddie]
🙌 I just wrote a query that fetches all my existing post categories, counts the instances of them being used on a post and orders them in descending order, giving me a list of my categories with the most used ones at the top!
#
[eddie]
Not surprisingly the top ones are ate, drank, health and checkin because those auto attach to specific post types with the following five being tv show/movie genres from my watch posts

sknebel I want to get the actual load sent for one that went wrong. It was a multi-image post on IG, but Known showed two copies of the first image. Trying to work out why.

GWG
[eddie]: So a client can display location? Isn't that a use case?
#
GWG
[tantek]: Only on one
#
[eddie]
GWG I guess I'm not sure what you mean by "a client can display location"?
#
GWG
[eddie] Look at Twitter or similar mobile clients. You click the location button and it shows a map or textual location.
#
GWG
Quill shows a map. But why should the client do that? Why not the endpoint?
#
[eddie]
So for say Micropub for Wordpress it makes sense because you can program it and it can work for a lot of people
#
[eddie]
but for people who might build individual Micropub servers that means everyone has to worry about location
#
[eddie]
rather than the Micropub client dealing with it for the server
#
[eddie]
so I think there are arguments for both directions lol
#
[eddie]
depends who we want to do the heavy lifting
#
GWG
[eddie]: I think the best move is that if the server supports it, use it, if not, don't or offer a client level
#
GWG
Bear in mind that we proposed a venue query ages ago
#
[eddie]
Gotcha, makes sense
#
[eddie]
Just thought it was interesting to talk through :D
#
GWG
I agree
#
GWG
Someone wanted to query for contacts
#
sebsel
I think there is room for an external service here, to enhance the Micropub stuff.
#
sebsel
We talked about it in Berlin
#
GWG
This is what I wanted to implement
#
sebsel
I should blog about it
#
ichoquo0Aigh9ie
micropub -> carddav
#
GWG
sebsel, what service are you thinking of
#
Loqi
I agree
#
GWG
I wanted to implement carddav for something else
#
sebsel
GWG the thing where we where talking about the weather-service
#
sebsel
I don't know if the same technique would apply
#
GWG
It might
#
GWG
I would like to do venue search someday
#
[eddie]
Yeah, I want to query for contacts
#
GWG
[eddie]: If you implement it, they will co5
#
GWG
come
#
GWG
I will implement a venue query and hope swentel will implement client support.
#
GWG
Do we have a proposal for querying for supported query or mp commands?
#
GWG
How do I query for what I can query for short of just querying for it?
#
GWG
Or whether an Endpoint supports mp-slug?
#
sknebel
I think I saw something like q=commands proposed at some point
#
sknebel
and originally there was some talk more in the direction of having different endpoints for the things instead of q= options, and one to discover a list of those, but I guess the trend has gone in other directions
#
sebsel
I would still like a list of possible q= values
#
sebsel
sounds really hypertext-ish :P
#
[eddie]
Yeah, we do probably need a way to query for possible q=values

sebsel
hey, XRay doesn't do my posts anymore :(
#
sebsel
it sees them as cards.
#
sebsel
There are two objects on the page, and the url matches that of the second, the entry.
#
sknebel
huh, odd
#
sebsel
yeah I used to have a h-entry on my <body> tag, so the h-card would be inside of the h-entry
#
sebsel
now I've changed that to fix authorship on my feeds.
#
sebsel
but now it broke my permalinked posts
#
sebsel
files issues
#
sknebel
there's been some recent xray changes too, might be something with that
#
sknebel
or do you have an older local xray?
#
sebsel
I have a very old one local
#
sebsel
but i was checking the one on p3k.io
#
sknebel
yeah, that's the one I checked too - but if had seen it in your old one, that'd be a sign it's not a recent change that broke it

[sebsel] #82 Match the 'main' object of the page on url
#
aaronpk
i could have sworn i had code and tests to handle this case
#
sebsel
ah, but that's not matching on URL.

order wasn't supposed to matter for that but guess i need to add another test

yep, when I reverse those the test fails :P

jgmac1106 joined the channel
#
sebsel
ah, it's in the feed thing
#
sebsel
It sees that there are more items, so it removes the h-entry
#
sebsel
but then the next check is: there is just one item left
#
sebsel
and then it takes the first of the *original* array
#
aaronpk
wait why does it remove the h-entry?
#
sebsel
which is the card
#
sebsel
and then it says: only got a card, so that's it
#
sebsel
oh no
#
sebsel
it removes the h-card
#
sebsel
but the problem is that it takes the first item from the original array
#
sebsel
that's the problem, because that first item in the original array is still the h-card.
#
aaronpk
hm well in any case i forgot to add enough tests for all the combinations of situations this can occur
#
sebsel
a feed of one entry, starting with a card, will also fail
#
sebsel
but that's the same as this case.
#
sebsel
one entry is just one entry, no implicit one-entry-feed.
#
sebsel
yep, found bug, all tests pass again :D
#
sebsel
aaronpk do you want me to modify this test, or add is as a new case?
#
aaronpk
new case plz
#
aaronpk
my site is the h-entry+h-card pattern so wanna make sure that still works

still weird tho, because my fix does *nothing* with the URL

I want to do h-card+h-card+h-entry
#
aaronpk
hmm yeah

seems like there should be something where if there is a top level object with a matching URL that overrides anything else

ah, that one just passes

feel free to add more tests even if they already pass
#
sebsel
Ok, pushed one test more

sebsel
btw the travis build fails on SSL-stuff
