Klowning Around to Wordpress

1 min read

Woah, this ice is slippery! I don't know how to skate! Can I use an exclamation mark in every sentence, even a question?!

This, alas, is a second weakly veiled attempt to post to both my known site and maybe twitter too but specifically to the Dog Blog. Tim has tweaked some server things (the last time it posted to everywhere but known, which is kind of the point).



What is this Klown Doing?

Ok, here I go. I am writing this as a Post in my known site

Do I have any other better content to use as a test case?

Maybe I will include a dog photo? Does this fit with the phrase of eating one's own dog food?

Odd bug, I cannot get the cursor past the photo in the known Editor w/o pressing a bunch o' returns. 

Because software. 

That's okay.

I am using the known plugin for Wordpress that Tim made. Ideally this would be some sort of authentication click thing rather than manual entering user name passwords.

But that's not the point. I wish to click the twitter and Wordpress buttons below to send out this post. See?

KNOWN... active!


You are right Kate, figuring out how to reply to a known post is a few steps down from clumsy. Wonder if I can hack a bookmarklet (or maybe it exists).

I hand added 500+ sites to an aggregator for ETMOOC; definitely not efficient. In a wide open course, people throw all kind of junk in a form. For a class you might be able to specify that student make a standalone blog (much easier to add to Wordpress automatically). But you do not have that either. I *think* from what UMW is doing setting up a hub is not much work. I think in those cases the inoreader or netvibes approach may be better, though still feeds need to be added.
