What’s the difference between a “Bookmark” and a “Read” in relation to Post Kinds saved here?
I try to define a “Bookmark” as a link to a post that contains useful information that I might want to refer to again in the future. A “Read” is a link to piece of writing that I particularly enjoyed and that I want to share or would like to read again.
That’s how I would like to define them anyway but things are never as tidy as that. A third kind is “Like” which muddies things even further. Aren’t the others “Likes” too?
I like Post Kinds but I’ve always been worried about the data if I stop using it in the future. Posts just disapear when you turn it off and it would take a lot of work to put stuff back in again. I’ve been considering adding the appropriate markup manually going forward.
Updated to WordPress 5.5 and everything appears to be in working order. I’m reading lots of comments on Twitter about serious bugs but I haven’t come across any yet.
The SemPress theme was also updated with a better integration of Syndication Links and Post Kinds plugins. It looks nice.
Great blog post by Steve, a musician I really like, that chimes with IndieWeb without mentioning the IndieWeb at all.
I like what this plugin does but if you turn it off the major part of your post content disappears. I’m a bit worried about what would happen if Post Kinds were to stop working at some point in the future.
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.
