I am researching the concept of the IndieWeb and POSSE (definitions below).
I have always recommended that the hub of all activity should be my customer’s website. When I was the President of the ATD DC Chapter, I also always recommended that our website contain the full articles and announcements and that our email newsletter summarized the topics and pointed back to the website. BUT I never knew there was a name for this. And of course, did not fully implement in my own world.
In learning about the IndieWeb, I saw that Chris Aldrich also had videos on how to setup WordPress to help implement this. I listened and did find a little hiccup. Some of the recommended plugins don’t support Gutenberg and there are two recommended themes. I like Gutenberg and I like to try to work with the WordPress theme associated with the latest release. I really like the concept of Microformats and that is a plugin that requires the classic editor. I submitted a support question on the topic of the Twenty Twenty-Three theme supporting Post Formats from the past and have not received a reply yet.
At this point, I am going to review the videos again and write down my IndieWeb implementation requirements. I will base my requirements on the constraints that I am imposing regarding keeping the Twenty Twenty Three (or latest) theme and using Gutenberg.
Chris’s video’s are below.
