possible article stub for theme developer guide:
- Run the theme and post through indiewebify.me.
- You can also visit htpps://chat.indieweb.org and ask for help looking at the source code of a post to see if it has the correct microformats2 mark up.
- Remove any old microformats if they are found. This is usually indicated by a v-card or fn in your classes.
- Add micoformats2 to each post type template.
- Begin with the h-card. The IndieWeb plugin handles this by adding rel=me links in the profile and adding an h-card widget. You can just fold these into the theme or add an h-card to the header or footer.
- Then you can look to h-entry. You can start with just your post and page types. You could stop there and be done
- If you wanted to add all the #IndieWeb Post Types (hence known as post-kinds to avoid confusion) look at the post-kind page on the indieweb.org wiki
- The Post-Kind Plug in adds these, but it would be better to fold this plug in into your theme. I do not know why the custom post types aren't used https://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types but I would ask Matthias Pfefferle and David Shanske
- Add a notification to add the following plug-ins. There are more but these will get your users started.
- semantic linkbacks
- micropub...technically not required but publishing with third party clients is awesome
- Indieweb... if you didn't do rel="me" and h-card in your theme...do it in your theme
- Post-Kinds...if you didn't do it in your theme...do it in your theme
- There might be some UI changes that I don't have a clue about. Better question for David or Mathais
- Remember keeping things as basic HTML as possible is a major design consideration of the #IndieWeb. Plus it helps out the microformats parsers
- Go to indiewebify.me again try again. Hopefully all passes.
- Go to webmentions.rock and test all the validators. Hopefully you will pass
