A more minimal “just-an-RSS-reader” approach I can live with just fine, for now.

I don’t generally like displaying articles inside a “box” like this, but they _do_ give you something to attach “extra” information to, like the bookmark icon and URL here. Just might have to copy this approach over to the new app.

I, uh, built a thing. Know it’s ugly, still. It’s a traditional RSS reader … that supports Microformats feeds and—for now, at least—IndieAuth. And there will be a Microsub-compatible API. (The web app itself isn’t Microsub-driven.) Runs on nearly any shared hosting environment.


What that looks like (in Windows, unfortunately)? If there's one thing I'm proud of, it's the tidiness of my WordPress admin interface.

New joystick, button blank where the extra hole used to be. Not perfect, but better.


Meanwhile, scanned and cleaned up the sound adjustment instruction sheet that can be found inside, ’cause I felt like it. Also found a complete manual online, in PDF format.

Just added a tiny new feature to “Share on Mastodon.” After a post is published, the meta box will now display a link to the corresponding Mastodon status. There’s also the possibility to forget the Mastodon URL, allowing anyone to _again_ share their post (the next time it’s updated). Fun fact: this isn’t new per se, but previously required fiddling with a hidden custom field.

New version’s not in the WordPress repo, yet. I’ll try to push it tomorrow or so.


It only took me just over three years to change the crazy worn tires on this thing.
