This presentation covers how I transformed my website from being a static digital portfolio into a dynamic hub, ingrained with my social presence, containing the most authentic version of me online.
I’ve started to use Cloudinary for media hosting solution on this site. It seems really good so-far, except for the fact that my media URLs aren’t working quite right when I upload from mobile. Hoping to get that resolved because other than that, this seems like the perfect solution to my problem.
I submitted a bug report for the Cloudinary plugin, related to the mobile experience when uploading media using the WordPress app.
Hey folks! I appreciate you taking the time to read and offer recommendations. I want a seamless way to upload media directly from the WordPress mobile app, but without hosting it on my site. The ideal service would handle large files and optimize them for the web. Anyone got suggestions? More context in the linked article.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Michelle Frechette on WPCoffeeTalk today. We talked about WordPress, my new site, and the fields API
I was featured on WP Tavern, where Nathan and I talked about how the Fediverse has transformed my approach to publishing content online.
I think I'd really benefit from some kind of media service that handles the photos and videos on my WordPress site. I need a more-reliable way to upload videos that auto-converts the videos, optimizes them, serves them, organizes them, and all of that fancy stuff. WordPress works, but it's never really been a great media tool. Hmm.
I'm finally dipping my toes into an auto-poster setup using the Share on Mastodon plugin:
Fingers crossed that this works as-expected, although I'm sure I'll end up with some formatting oddities in the short-term. It'll be worth it, though!
I had mistakenly thought that the WordPress app was replaced by Jetpack. Turns out it wasn't. It simply split from WordPress. You no longer need Jetpack to run the WordPress app on a self hosted WordPress site.
No offense to the people who surely work hard on this plugin, but it's not for me 😊.
Silly me. I've been manually typing the hashtags in these microposts. I even conceptualized this parser that automatically converts hashtags into WP tags and turns them into links.
I dropped this, and instead just automatically append all of the tags on this post as a hashtag on the site. So much easier.
