There's no way I know of to find old spam that came into WithKnown while I was not getting notifications. I had thought that my scheme of jumping on spam as soon as possible after receiving (restarted) notifications had found them all. But no. Today surfaced a bookmark post that had accumulated 10 spams since August 2018.

Lotta continua!

Replied to a post on dem.cx :

I very much share and understand Amani Mena's frustrations, and often feel the same way myself. That's the problem with plurality, and building blocks, and many things, loosely joined. Too much choice. That's why when I started I went for WithKnown out of the box. Today I might recommend micro.blog. Once you're up and running, and have everything on your domain, you can learn and change systems as you do so. The key is to have everything on your domain.

Yay, and welcome to WithKnown. Glad to see you got it working. One comment, I think that the twitter logo might be missing from the syndicated link for this post.

@noffle I know absolutely nothing about server admin but I am very happy using bits of indieweb. There is also micro.blog which is even more accessible than WithKnown.

Just confirmed that my little script for posting podcasts I've listened to from Overcast to WithKnown fails when there is more than one episode of the same show in the queue. Pinning that down is going to be ... tricky.

This is a test reply from Omnibear, to try and isolate why webmentions appear not to be being sent by WithKnown.

@mapkyca Amen to that, and thanks so much for your invaluable help with all things WithKnown.

Just upgraded my WithKnown site to the latest master. Slightly hair raising, but excellent help from @mapkyca got me over the hurdles. Only downside, currently, seems to be the plugin that syndicates to Twitter.

#Hashtags & HTML

1 min read

Once again, there is chatter about how @Withknown deals with hashtags and HTML I still believe that it often removes a hashtag from the content of an Instagram description, sent here by OwnYourGram. I'll test that in a moment. And there certainly were problems with certain characters in Titles and body. So this is a test of this <- and that.

I stopped sharing photo posts to micro.blog because they were being duplicated. Pretty sure now that's because the RSS contains the image twice, as part of the CDATA and again as an enclosure. Not sure whether to fix in @WithKnown or ask @help at micro.blog to ignore enclosure.
