GWG: for the Kind Embed of a Tweet, it appears to be grabbing the t.co version of a link. Is there a way to convert that over to the real URL?
#
GWG
[asuh]: The embed is done by WordPress itself.
#
GWG
I don't modify it.
#
[asuh]
Darn, ok
#
GWG
You can always turn off the embed
#
[asuh]
I like the embed, it’s a nice magical way to get a Tweet in a blockquote. I just dislike the t.co URL since it’s essentially a tracker

I'm sure we could figure out a way to fix that
#
[asuh]
I hadn’t really paid attention to the oEmbed functionality added previously but briefly remember it being added now that I’m looking up what happens. It’s a neat feature
#
GWG
[asuh]: I cover myself by also offering a non-embed version, but I figured people would want the embeds
#
[asuh]
The t.co annoyance is obviously minor
#
[asuh]
The non-embed version, is that the logic behind the checkbox saying “Embed Sites into your Response”?
#
GWG
Yes.
#
GWG
It switches to the same display it uses for non-oembed sites
#
GWG
It's a dynamic setting
#
GWG
So you can turn it on/off without permanent effect
#
[asuh]
nice, I’ll play around with that to see what I think

Oh interesting, since WordPress 5.0 wasn’t forced by my web host (or maybe that was Automattic actually behind that decision), I just got a notification that it’s now updated to 4.9.9. I’m glad no one is forcing me to upgrade yet but keeping the 4.9.x line updated and secure

Yes, I just noticed a bunch of emails about 4.4.9 I hope this means I don’t even have to think about classic editor and can just move to classic press in due course.

Hi need help to learn WordPress from scratch any best tutorial please
#
[jgmac1106]
@lk90 the best bet is to just install.... But yes we have step by step guides for each IndieWeb theme
#
[jgmac1106]
Need to get more folks to. Upvote the microformats ticket with ClassicPress
#
[jgmac1106]
It is slipping
#

I have installed WordPress but the thing is themes looks r different in mobile and desktop... So looking for tutorial, any guidance will be helpful
#
[jgmac1106]
For IndieWeb use SemPress which is in the theme repo
#
[jgmac1106]
You can use 2016-IndieWeb but you download from GitHub
#
[jgmac1106]
I have same videos for the 2016 theme
#
[jgmac1106]
@lk90 that should get you started
#
Ik90
Thank's a lot jgmac1106, I'll start working on it

[jgmac1106] will you delete the youtube videos after you moved them to archive.org or will you keep both?
