This is a little awkward

1 min read

I've been moaning to anyone who'll listen that there seems to be something wrong with Known; Micropubs could not seem to find the syndication targets. And other people had the same problem, I believe. But after a really enjoyable virtual Homebrew Web Club meeting, the problem might after all be at my end.

@zegnat created a fresh install of Known as we watched, hooked it up to Twitter, and was instantly rewarded with Quill seeing his syndication target, which it resolutely refused to do on my instance of Known. (It failed actually to syndicate, but that's a separate issue.)

So, now I need to try a fresh install myself. And as @Jeena suggested, better to do that on a new and different subdomain than risk messing everything up.

Alas, there is no way on Earth I can do this until near the end of the month.

I can wait.

Writing something nice again, but I have enabled the Markdown plugin on Known.


And maybe a headline too

Like this

Utterly bizarre; when I went to write a new post, the above was already there. In other words, the content of the post from Quill, without the block quote. >This should be a markdown block quote. I'm knackered. Will try some more tomorrow.

So need something in HTML, like this block quote

I'm writing something nice, as instructed.

> Does Quill do Markdown?

I don't think so, although I just noticed that there is a hover that seems to create quotes.

Let me test that.

How about tags? Like and ? Oh no, they're in the publish box.

Bummed out by the fact that Quill wasn't enabling me to syndicate directly to Twitter, I followed up on some good advice from Daniel Gold: Back to basics, uninstall and reinstall plugins one by one. Shades of WordPress. So I did that, and here's what I found:

With IndieSyndicate configured (*via* silo.pub) I can posts to Twitter just fine, but Quill still does not see that as a Syndication target and Quill cannot post to my site.

In retrospect, that's obvious, because there is no endpoint at my site.

So I enabled IndiePub and now Quill posts fine, but it still does not see any Syndication target.

I probably just have to live with that. At least for now.

Finally, re-enabled Brid.gy and everything looks good once again.

Just for the record, here, I've decided that for now I do not need these plugins: Static pages, Firefox, Events, Custom JS, Custom CSS, Comics, Audio, API tester. That may change in time.

I'm not using Reactions, so I cannot comment on that. I did, however, test quill.p3k.io to like a post, and the post's card came through perfectly formatted (just not centred, which I can live with).

Having switched Quill's endpoint to my new instance of WithKnown, I thought it only right and proper that my first post there be my first post from Quill.<p> </p>
