IndieWeb for WordPress!

The IndieWeb Plugin for WordPress helps you establish your IndiewWeb identity by extended the user profile to provide rel-me and h-card fields. It also includes a bundled installer for a core set of IndieWeb-related plugins. It's meant to be a one-stop shop to help WordPress users quickly and easily join the growing IndieWeb movement (see below).

Some of these plugins allow you to:

  • send and receive comments, likes, reposts, and other kinds of post responses using your own site
  • allow comments on others' sites to show up as comments on your posts
  • help make IndieWeb comments and mentions look better on your site
  • allow support for threaded comments and webmentions
  • more easily syndicate your content to other sites to take advantage of network effects and other communities while still owning all of your original content
  • link to syndicated versions of a post so that comments on your content in silos like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ can come back to your original post as comments there
  • allow you to add bookmarklets to easily respond/comment on other sites with one click
  • set up a MicroPub Server to use other posting interfaces. (You could potentially use services like Instagram, Foursquare, and others to post to your WordPress site.)
  • set up a personal URL shortener
  • log into your WordPress site with services like Twitter, GitHub, SMS, or even email using IndieAuth.

The IndieWeb

The IndieWeb is a people-focused alternative to the ‘corporate web’ that allows you to be the humb of your own web presence. It's been written about in Wired, The Atlantic, Slate, and Gigaom amongst others.

The IndieWeb, like WordPress, feels that your content is yours

When you post something on the web, it should belong to you, not a corporation. Too many companies have gone out of business and lost all of their users’ data. By joining the IndieWeb, your content stays yours and in your control.

The IndieWeb is here to help you be better connected

Your articles and status messages can be syndicated to all services, not just one, allowing you to engage with everyone in your social network/social graph. Even replies and likes on other services can come back to your site so they’re all in one place.
