Browser Bookmarklets for Giving Credit

I've been thinking more lately about giving credit on my own website, particularly in cases where the context of things I'm reading has some additional context based on where I originally saw them. I'd also like to give people I follow credit as the source by which my own content is aggregated. Earlier today I…

Reply to Aaron Davis’ Reply to IndieWeb Press This bookmarklets for WordPress

Replied to Reply to IndieWeb Press This bookmarklets for WordPress by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (collect.readwriterespond.com)
I have been using Dave Winer’s Radio3 platform/bookmarklet, but would rather a process which would allow me to store bookmarks on my blog and POSSE them. I was therefore wondering about creating a similar bookmarklet that generates ‘Bookmark’ post-kinds, as well as the possibility of posting from mobile? Am I going down the wrong path, especially as WordPress tinkers with ‘Press This’?
Aaron, the IndieWeb PressThis version bookmarklets are certainly a laudable solution for bookmarking things (even as WordPress moves the functionality of the original out of core), but I suspect you may find a more robust solution given some of your current set up.

To AMP, or Not To AMP, That is the Question: Whether ’tis Nobler in the Mind to Bookmarklet

"Hi. My name is Chris and I'm a web browser bookmarklet junkie." Accelerated Mobile Pages I've been following most of the (Google) Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) discussion (most would say debate) through episodes of This Week in Google where Leo Laporte plays an interesting foil to Jeff Jarvis over the issue. The other day I…

IndieWeb “Press This” Bookmarklet for WordPress

Liked IndieWeb press this by Matthias PfefferleMatthias Pfefferle (GitHub)

One big IndieWeb raison d’être is using your own web site to reply, like, repost, and RSVP to posts and events. You do this by annotating links on your site with simple microformats2 HTML.

Having said that, most people don’t want to write HTML just to like or reply to something. WordPress’s Press This bookmarklets can already start a new post with a link to the page you’re currently viewing. This code adds IndieWeb microformats2 markup to that link. Combined the wordpress-webmention plugin, you can use this to respond to the current page with just two clicks.

What’s more, if you’re currently on a Facebook post or Twitter tweet, this adds the Bridgy Publish link that will reply, like, favorite, retweet, or even RSVP inside those social networks.

I'm not sure why I didn't upgrade this ages ago when I saw it mentioned (probably because of the manual nature of the upgrade and the fact that I don't think it's bundled into the IndieWeb plugin for WordPress), but here we go. And this is the first post actually using the bookmarklet.
Not sure if there are many/any podcasts about digital gardens and tangential topics, but I've started a tag on Huffduffer for those who'd like it for discovery or adding those they find themselves: https://huffduffer.com/tags/digital+gardens If you find a podcast with some discussion about the topic, feel free to use Huffduffer's bookmarklet to add it to…
Replied to Lets bring back the blogroll to WordPress by Michael Beckwith (Michaelbox)
Come with me as I briefly explore Blogrolls and re-introducing them in 2021 and creating a WordPress Block for their display.
I have so many ideas about this. The first one being that it's awesome. While WordPress is about websites, it's also got a lot of pieces of social media sites hiding under the hood and blogrolls are generally precursors of the following/followed piece. Blogrolls were traditionally stuck on a small widget, but I think they…

The original Press This spun itself off as a stand-alone plugin, so look there first to recreate its functionality. If that doesn't suit, try David Shanske's Post Kinds plugin which incorporates a lot of Press This functionality and extends it quite a bit. You can create bookmarklets with it that work well (including mobile). Another…

A note taking problem and a proposed solution

tl;dr It's too painful to quickly get frequent notes into note taking and related platforms. Hypothes.is has an open API and a great UI that can be leveraged to simplify note taking processes. Note taking tools I've been keeping notes in systems like OneNote and Evernote for ages, but for my memory-related research and work…
Replied to Making RSS more visible again with a /feeds page by Marcus HerrmannMarcus Herrmann (marcus.io)
A few years ago you could easily tell if a page offered an RSS feed. Browsers (at least good ones) had a feed symbol close to their location bar, and if you were really lucky (or used a really good browser), that indicator was even a button, empowering you to subscribe to a website with only one cli...
The overall idea to make it easier to subscribe to a personal website is certainly a laudable one. Sadly the general concept presented here, while it sounds potentially useful, is far too little and misdirected. Hopefully better potential solutions are still not too late. First, let's step back a moment. The bigger problem with feeds…
Replied to a thread (Twitter)
Lots of potential ways of shaving this yak. The best "modern" way would be to create a Micropub endpoint and then you can use some of the excellent multi-platform Micropub clients like Quill, Omnibear, Micropublish.net, etc. The benefit of this is that you get way more than just bookmarks. I don't know if anyone has…

Thoughts on Wikity for WordPress

I spun up a new instance of Wikity today at http://wikity.chrisaldrich.net/ to test it out for potential use as a personal online wiki. My goal was also to test out how it may or may not work with IndieWeb-based WordPress pieces too. Below are my initial thoughts and problems. The /home/ page has a lot…

Displaying Webmentions on TiddlyWiki

I've previously written about setting up receiving Webmention for TiddlyWiki by logging into webmention.io and creating an account to delegate the receipt of the notifications.   Naturally, these notifications can be more fun for cross-site conversations if one has the ability to display the webmentions on the posts to which they relate. There are probably a…
