Bookmarked https://github.com/euchenhofer/wordpress-webmention/commit/beb2d961f0074fc8b4a6fcd8babf533a4cd5db61.

I’ve previously complained about not being able to easily add a class to inline links in Gutenberg. This here code takes a bit of a different approach, and uses span and data elements instead. (Still, I’d love to be able to just use a elements, in a robust manner.)

Some feed readers provide a “live” OPML endpoint. Miniflux does, and Inoreader, I think, allows for it too. In fact, way back when Frank wondered about syncing his reader’s OPML endpoint to his WordPress site’s blogroll, I created a plugin that does exactly that. Which then made me add an OPML endpoint to my Aperture—a Microsub server—install. I mean, doesn’t have to be a separate service. (Aperture, by the way, will also let you store a feed’s format and name.)

Added a job to my feed aggregator/Microsub server that quickly validates mf2 media, i.e., the URLs that end up in entries’ photo and video arrays, by means of a HEAD request. If the server returns a 404 (or similar), the URL is probably faulty (e.g., the result of a misplaced u-photo tag), and the item removed from the list. No more (well, definitely less) “broken images” below posts!

I often explicitly add things like, “In reply to …,” to notes like this, to offer some context to passers-by and RSS subscribers alike. And then forget to keep these sentences out of my e-content, so that social readers, which already pick up the microformats in them, don’t go and display the same information twice. Details matter.

Got reminded of my own /feeds page today. This site only offers 3 “true” RSS feeds: one for regular blog posts (articles), one for shorter status updates (notes), and one for both. That said: most of this site’s sections double as a h-feed; you can even follow search results! Moreover, both articles and notes are marked up using microformats, for social readers to do their thing.
