Short status updates that may end up elsewhere, too.
My feed reader is an important part of my morning routine, but it also serves another purpose: to keep regular subscription content out of my inbox.

Just added a tiny new feature to “Share on Mastodon.” After a post is published, the meta box will now display a link to the corresponding Mastodon status. There’s also the possibility to forget the Mastodon URL, allowing anyone to again share their post (the next time it’s updated). Fun fact: this isn’t new per se, but previously required fiddling with a hidden custom field. New version’s not in the WordPress repo, yet. I’ll try to push it tomorrow or so.

Also, and I hate to say this, comparing page load times for a static site on the one hand and WordPress + a page caching plugin on the other makes little sense. In both cases, you’re loading static HTML.
You can achieve the same performance by putting a great CDN like Cloudflare on top of WordPress, and your life will be infinitely easier when you want to add dynamic features like a store or comments.

It is time to consider some standards on design-related class names and provide a framework that all themes can use.
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.)

I keep messing up reposts. :-(
If I was considering Jamstack for a particular project, and the grand total really was twelve services, I probably would reconsider, particularly if I could reach for a tool like WordPress and bring it down to one.

Just the other day I was a bit disappointed a Twenty Twenty function was not pluggable like that. I worked around the problem by copy-and-pasting the function into my child theme, making the necessary changes, giving it a new name, and then creating child theme versions of the—only two, luckily!—templates that called it, having them call my version instead.

That is strange. It should work pretty much exactly like Monocle, and let you post a whole bunch of different types of posts. When you add a new (“IndieWeb”) account, do you get sent to your auth method of choice—your WordPress installation, most likely? Try refreshing, or even removing and re-adding your account? Just in case something changed on your end?
