Continuing with the progress on my IndieWeb website project, I succeeded in replying to a Mastodon Post from my website.
Day 7 of 100 #100DaysofIndieWeb, #IndieWeb, #ProjectJournal, #ProjectManagement
This project, at times, is a little complicated. Based on my assumptions that I will not use the WordPress Classic Editor and will use Gutenberg and the Block editor, and the default theme, it has made it such that I can’t use a couple of the plugins that might have made this more straightforward. I also wanted to try to use the WordPress blocks to accomplish this.
I succeeded in replying to this post. To do so I used a combination of blocks and HTML in a Custom HTML block. Ideally, I would have been able to add a class to each block and avoid the HTML. But I think that this compromise is a practical solution.
I have placed the classes on groups (divs) and placed the posts URL and class in the custom HTML. Screenshot below.
There are multiple resources that helped with finding out how to do this.
This was part of the plan but I was inspired today because of Tantek Çelik’s post on the six year anniversary of Webmentions.
(I will replace this photo with a marked up screenshot eventually.)
