Why is Twenty Twenty's `twentytwenty_get_post_meta()` not pluggable?

Turns out I most recently deleted my Twitter account on or near Nov 11, 2019. Two more months!

Quick sidenote: one could totally use Microsub channels to do this, too (and get rid of the unread items badge on a per-channel basis). I use a select Microsub channel and Nitter’s RSS feeds to keep track of _very few_ Twitter accounts, and purposely keep them out of my unread items list.

I mean, I don’t necessarily agree, but an interesting take on feed (or social) readers nonetheless.

Think I’ll be porting ochtendgrijs.be back to “standard” WordPress (from a “headless” variant) first—which _could_ make a good IndieWebCamp case, although I _might_ start from scratch rather than a popular existing theme. The most interesting bit for me, however, will likely be a plugin that—I think—is going to be a sort of alternative to Post Kinds.

And another one. New client, different site, (at least) identical hack. (Can't rule out multiple attack vectors, but the same outdated plugin was present.) Reinstalled just about everything, cleaned up what was left, and hardened the entire installation.

We're gonna just do it by hand, then ("Edit as HTML"). But it's easy enough to programmatically create, say, a paragraph block with such a link in it, like when we post thru Micropub.

Too bad this got closed. Being able to easily add a class name, like `u-bookmark-of` is a pretty big deal. github.com/WordPress/gutenberg (It's why I stick with the classic editor's HTML view, typically.) But we'll find a way.

Also. (No kidding. These things are pretty good, actually.)

My graphic designer buddy sent me this sign, and I hate it.

Always said I much preferred my Laravel setup over proper WordPress, because of all the control I’ve got over the front-end markup, but my web host has sort of made things much more difficult to maintain. And fully custom code’s way harder “to share to the world,” too. And I’ve been way overthinking things—what’s new?

May one day port some of the tricks I’m using to “greatly” simplify my “WordPress IndieWeb experience” to an add-on plugin, or a theme, or both. Or at least better document how I do things like set titles (yet “hide” them on the front end) for notes, to make for a more convenient back-end browsing experience. As an alternative to Post Kinds, perhaps, and existing themes. (And then make the whole thing Gutenberg-compatible. 😬)

Timestamps seem to confirm this, too. Which is nice; I've been asked to clean WordPress installs before, and not too often can everything be explained so clearly.

We seem to have been hit around August 25 or so, after example code was posted on GitHub and before an "official" fix was made available. (Guess I'll be following the blogs a bit more closely, then.) Also, found malware well beyond the folder mentioned in the article. (That folder, in fact, was clean, as the plugin had been updated in the meantime.) Because by then, well, I'm guessing they had access to the whole thing. 😁
