This is very good. I use custom fields all the time, although I tend to build custom meta boxes—a few lines of code, really—rather that use the “native” UI. (Have never touched ACF; the Meta Box plugin, yes, for certain, more advanced field types and when deadlines were tight.)

Prevent Jetpack From Displaying Geolocation Data https://jan.boddez.net/articles/prevent-jetpack-from-displaying-geolocation-data
Want to create a modern, block-based, #IndieWeb-compatible #WordPress site. (Thing is, a lot of “IndieWeb” posts are created _outside_ of its [block] editor, i.e., through Micropub. [That’s not to say carefully crafted long-form posts can’t be, e.g., “replies.” They can.] The other thing is I don’t really like WordPress’s autogenerated markup/classes, etc. Athough there’s definitely things that can be done about that, too.)
Using block variations to create a custom taxonomy block, nice.
Spent an hour or two writing a (basic) WordPress plugin that consumes “audio scrobbles,” like those sent to Last.fm. So rather than (share my data with a third-party service and then) use their API to display a widget or whatever on my blog, my CMS _itself_ is now the “audio scrobbling” endpoint.
Playing around with location/weather data on my personal site. Simple Location would be overkill, so I’m going just add the bits I need to my IndieWeb Custom Post Types plugin. #WordPress
Importing “Bookmarks” https://jan.boddez.net/articles/importing-bookmarks
#WordPress _is_ slow, though. Luckily, that doesn’t actually matter if you’re anyway going to cache pages to static HTML and serve that. Just saying.

An alternative for Post Kinds (and my—even simpler than Shortnotes—https://github.com/janboddez/indieweb-custom-post-types)?
Keeping My WordPress Blogroll in Sync With More Than One OPML Endpoint https://jan.boddez.net/articles/keeping-my-wordpress-blogroll-in-sync-with-more-than-one-opml-endpoint
So, I found a bug in Sendinblue’s #WordPress plugin that disables sending more than one attachment with transactional emails.
Dangit, I’ve always liked Contact Form 7 (over other such plugins). Saw one blog comment attackers could upload executable binaries, and now I’m wondering how they’d execute those. Thinking they mean PHP portal scripts or whatever they’re called. (Which wouldn’t do much [?] if you’ve disabled PHP in the uploads folder.) Bit worried about the fact that the patched version requires #WordPress 5.4 or up. What with sites that run older versions (that otherwise receive minor core updates, still)?
