Looks like the IndieAuth Client for PHP dropped the me param when it exchanged getAccessToken() for exchangeAuthorizationCode() around when it moved to the 1.0.0 version, and that WordPress’s IndieAuth plugin never fully caught up, I’m thinking because Aperture hadn’t upgraded till now (and no one is foolish enough to self-host it, let alone the very latest version). (Also, please correct me if I’m wrong.)

Bookmarked https://jamesg.blog/2020/09/15/privacy-social-media-and-this-website.html.

Feels ironic to be bookmarking this, on my site. That said, there’s a reason I’ve created separate feeds for separate post types, and I do try to stay off the mainstream social networks.

I implemented support for bookmarks and likes and replies because these are commonplace on the IndieWeb. I understand why. Many people still use social media and use their website as a method of syndication. This is not me. I left social media [earlier this year].

This way of sharing (properly curated) bookmarks probably is the way to go. ’Til I have time, though, I’m going to have to do it the quick (and dirty) way.

I like [Ana Rodriguez’] approach to bookmarks. She writes one post every month with all of the articles she has bookmarked.

Quickly created this WordPress plugin that basically introduces a short-form CPT—well, two, but you don’t necessarily have to use ‘em both—and maps Micropub entries to it. That’s it. How’s this relate to Post Kinds? It doesn’t. I like how it keeps WP Admin (and permalink URLs) really neat and all, but there’s no meta boxes, and no markup gets generated for you. (Want to add, e.g., u-in-reply-to in there? Gonna have to do that by hand.) https://github.com/janboddez/indieweb-custom-post-types

Anyway, if you’ve got both a h-feed and an RSS feed—you’ve probably got more than one, which is great—for pretty much the same items, and they’re both reasonably error-free and understandable, I’m gonna follow the h-feed. (There’s occasional errors in my microformatted HTML, too, which I’ll then rectify, and so on. It’s sort of unavoidable and no biggie.)
