Question: The Facebook ID and Twitter username etc that I entered in my Profile Page is intended to be turned into rel=me links, right? Is that something the theme needs to do, or how does that get emitted into the HTML?
#
j12t
I had it entered manually in a separate widget with display=none, but I guess I don't need to do that?
#
GWG
j12t: Correct
#
j12t
GWG: in my non-mf2 theme, do I have to do that myself? If so, any examples how?
#
GWG
It's the Indieweb plugin that does that
#
j12t
It doesn't seem to be doing it for me
#
j12t
so I suspected that the theme needs to cooperate
#
j12t
(actually, bbl, I think it's my turn to cook dinner)

I took the the python uf parser, wrapped a main program around it, and have it dump the parsed microformats out in JSON from a given URL. I'm throwing this at a test Wordpress installation where I switch between Independent Publisher (with uf) and my pinboard theme. Theoretically (right?) the uf JSON output should be the same. Bit it isn't at all.

No theme is 100% perfect
#
j12t
That's okay. What I'd love to have help with, however, is some hints where in my theme I have to get it to insert the rel=me links
#
j12t
and where it gets that info from
#
GWG
Well, I'm confused about why it isn't working. There are two ways in the Indieweb plugin to get rel-me links.
#
GWG
1. Use the rel-me widget
#
GWG
2. If you don't, and set a single-author site and specify the author in the Indieweb options, it should display on the main page
#
j12t
I tried #2. But it doesn't.

Very odd.
#
GWG
Which site is this?
#
j12t
Currently a test site I'm running behind approx 3 firewalls in series, so I can't show you :-)
#
j12t
I'll play with it some more and perhaps come up with more specific questions.

GWG
j12t: Any time. I want it to work for all
