I signed up for my third Mastodon instance today. The concept of instances and how they interact is going to be a stumbling block for any potential, non-techy, Twitter refugees.

independent-publisher - A beautiful reader-focused WordPress theme, for you.

When a note is posted to the front page of my site as an “Aside” the whole text becomes a link to the single post page. I’ve looked through the CSS and can’t find a way of changing the format. Is there a way to do this?

This is a great idea but, as with apps like Quill and Micropublish, it’s sending notes to this site as a WordPress "Aside". I’ve tried to get rid of that post-format but it keeps coming back. It must be a theme quirk but it will need someone with better knowledge to fix it for me.

The previous post was just an example of using Teacup. It’s an IndieWeb app that lets you post what you’ve been eating and drinking to your blog. It’s not something I’m interested in doing but I was intrigued to see what an entry would look like on this site.

A hosting company that provides WordPress (and other blogging systems) with tested IndieWeb technologies out of the box is a good idea. I imagine it would take a lot of support but it should be do-able.
