Worked a bit on my WordPress site today

Just a quick note but in short, I have a WordPress running, my intention with this site/landing page is to learn to put in place & for a WordPress site but I had one constraint, I wanted to keep Elementor to design my pages, indeed I have become so much used to Elementor, it now takes me double time to work with core WordPress Gutemberg or doing page the old school approach.

After some discussion yesterday on I realized I could use a WordPress theme indieweb ready, called Autonomie (edit this post to add some links) with on top Elementor, so this is what I did today, but I'm not convinced yet, because I have issue with Author h-card not being visible for indiewebify checker tool.

I'm still messing around and thinking about how I have to correctly put this in place and then test indieauth, Micropub, Microsub from my WordPress instance.

If Elementor adds too much mess I will default to Autonomie & back to a very simple/pure/core approach to my WordPress site.

The recipe I'm using to publish as of now :

Updates on my blog can take several forms, a simple link I want to bookmark to read later, a status update with or without a link, a picture, audio, video, event, geo checkin etc.. It could also be a long post format about something specific I'm ranting about or passionately want to share with the world. The point is, I'm trying to create value and data on my blog first and thanks to the wonders of I can push what I create on my blog to different social media platforms : birdy site is still a place, even tho I find myself pushing to more often than I push to Twitter.

By using WithKnown & it's different plug-ins (Twitter, Mastodon, Facebook pages) I can publish on my blog, push copies to silo networks or the fediverse and cherry on top of the cake : get reactions to my posts on silo networks or on the fediverse to be pulled back to my website original post, as if these reactions (Comment, retoot/retweets/shares/favs/likes) were all different kinds of interactions, no matter where they come from on the web.

And of course if you own an compatible website / blog you can use my URL to comment directly on your website and it will stack up like any other reaction chronologically under my original post.

That's the web we should build while these pivot in behavior slowly dephase the silo networks out of our lives and we proclaim the Open Web to be "The Social Network" it should have been in the first place.

Need any help?

Finally, moved from bleeding edge @withknown (composer) to unofficial packages (thanks @mapkyca).
Now I have a functional Known install, mastodon plugin works just fine & other plugins in general that were not fully ready to be used in the new composer "branch" currently in dev.

Testing replying from my blog, pushing a copy using my mastodon account.
