So, I, uh, did revive my Mastodon-to-WordPress sync thingy, I mean, plugin. It’s very basic, which is good. (More advanced features, like improved reply contexts, should probably be the subject of an add-on plugin. Like, eventually.) https://github.com/janboddez/import-from-mastodon

Funny thing. Since I’ve switched to SimplePie, I see a lot more “image previews,” thanks the

Going to just drop this here: https://ryangjchandler.co.uk/posts/parsing-markdown-with-php-autolinking-and-strikethrough
Switching between the Parsedown Extra and Markdown Extra libraries for PHP. One doesn’t convert
<div markdown="1"></div> and the other doesn’t support
~~ for strikethrough text.
Recently watched the Fear Street trilogy, Turbo Kid, and La Gomera (The Whistlers), and now I’m wondering if I should revisit, or clarify, my “rating system,” which goes up to four stars. One star would be “interesting,” two stars “entertaining,” three stars very good and four almost impossibly awesome. As for the films above, I’d probably give them
one or two stars each, like so: ★★☆☆. (Should probably drop that fourth star, too, and not be such an a—hole.)

Because Zeldman had made the switch.
Why did you start using WordPress?

It’s my still limited understanding of all things #IndieWeb, undoubtedly, but all of this feels like it’d be easier if we stopped trying to mimic Facebook products and just accept semantic HTML and be done with it.
I’ve modified my feed reader to accept
figcaption—I mean, why not?—but because of how microformats feeds are parsed, images themselves are stripped from photo posts, to be shown underneath, leaving the caption rather lonely. One way to deal with this is interpret photo posts’ content as (mostly) plain text, I guess.
