Working my way through Chris Aldrich's guide to bringing Twitter @mentions home, and while the WP site is not responding, this site is. But, in the absence of a /mentions page, where on Earth are those backlinks going? And can I display them?

@kevinmarks Interesting piece, although @Withknown didn't like @velartrill's URL

Thanks for the notice. Just checked, and there doesn't seem to be a problem. Maybe it was temporarily unavailable? I've kind of abandoned it, for now, to concentrate on the version I am hosting myself. But I don't want to shut it down until makes it possible to export data from that version and import it to the master. Not that there's anything all that valuable there, but still ...

The future of WithKnown

1 min read

The question "does @WithKnown have a future?" is cropping up increasingly frequently of late. And the "official" answer is that it most definitely does, look at all the activity on github, nothing has changed. And it's true, there has been a lot of activity and things are moving, if you go and look. But for someone just looking in and trying to decide whether to use the software, the lack of outward facing activity must be a bit off-putting.

Or maybe it isn't.

I have no idea.

All this was kicked back and forth on the WithKnown IRC channel yesterday, with -- alas -- no input (yet?) from the developers.

I'm going to continue trying to understand Known because right now it seems to me the best place to continue pursuing ideals.

Pure voodoo. What did not work a couple of days ago works today. Exactly the same! So, Kudos to @dg01d and his plugin to syndicate from @withknown to pnut.

I wonder whether Brid.gy can talk to pnut.

Do you know anything as capable as @withknown out of the box @raretrack ?

Mysterious typography

Cannot for the life of me work out why @WithKnown styles these two reply type posts differently -- but it does.

I wonder whether I can use the Recipe plugin for @withknown to markup a recipe for and then copy the HTML to my own site?

Jeremy Cherfas

Quick question for Chris Aldrich, which I may be able to answer myself by judicious experimentation: how do you reply to two URLs at once?

Later: well, it isn't by including two URLs in the reply to a site field!

Another test of Quill editor

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.
