Yes, Tiny Theme has built in support for Micro.blog’s new comment reply feature. Was added less than 10 minutes after it was announced. Because why not?

@manton I’m hoping to find a two person solution. The DJI Mic 2 looks promising but it’s $. Would love something wired for ease of use, but no luck yet.

If you use Todoist and Safari (macOS), have you been able to get links added from Safari → Todoist? The extension claims to handle it, but it has never worked for me. Todoist shortcuts don’t work on macOS unless you go through the API. Perhaps that’s the only way?

@toddgrotenhuis There is nothing inherently wrong with them. We are just auditing everything we use with a few goals in mind (1) Finding the best for us, (2) Consolidating where possible, (3) Simplifying workflows. Notion is complicated for new (or non-techy) users. Craft is solid but they're putting so much effort into AI and web sharing with other things falling away.

What is the best app/service for a team wiki? Collaboration is a must. We’ve previously used Notion and Craft. Any good alternatives?

@vladcampos Makes sense. I can probably optimize how that works. I’ll get on that this week.

@jonah That's a solid freelancer type of approach, but my main issue is finding a solution for a large team that includes a substantial amount of volunteers. I need straightforward (download and login, the end).

@JohnPhilpin We actually don’t have a set “office” environment. Just not needed for us. People can choose their own and we deal with PDFs. Document collaboration isn’t needed.

Other apps/services we actively use are Slack, Zoom, Todoist, and specialized stuff like ProPresenter, Teleprompter+, etc.

@JohnPhilpin @vladcampos Giving some more detail/clarity to the request.

This is specifically for a BYOD work setting with various needs. Here they are:

Personal: Allow users to add appointments, block off time slots, set out of office stuff, etc. Pretty basic here and works with almost all services. Editable only by individual user.

Staff: An internal calendar that includes things like staff meetings, important internal events, etc. Editable only by leadership.

Public Facing: Events open to the public, holiday closures, etc. Basic business stuff. Accessible (embeddable) to anyone. Editable only by specific administrator.

We are currently using Google Calendar which can accomplish everything above. However, it is an absolute pain to properly setup on everyone’s devices and apps.

I’m hoping for a service (or perhaps highly rated app) that can do all of this (even if Google is the bones) where I can tell users…login and it’ll just work. This app, any device. That’s been our pain point to date.

@vladcampos That’s our current solution, but it struggles with a lot of the minutiae. Hoping there is a better alternative.

@pratik I was actually converting the page title to lowercase to match the category. Those two things are compared later in the code (this helps with multi-category posts). But in your case, I should've left it alone and not converted it. It's always the simplest fix. Next up is tackling your footnotes issue, but I don't have the brain power for that tonight.

Avatar

Matt Langford
@Mtt

@pratik 🤦🏼‍♂️ I think it just hit me. I use categories in all lower case, you have them in Title Case. I updated the code to be in Title case instead.

Avatar

Matt Langford
@Mtt

@pratik At this point, my only suggestion is to create a new custom theme with only that one file (you'll need to remove the search partial portion) and see if it works. If it works at that point, you know it's a conflict with a customization. If it still doesn't work at that point, I'm out of ideas. I'm running a clean install with only that customization on 0.117.

Matt Langford
@Mtt

@pratik Hmm. It's working fine on 0.117 for me.

@pratik I'm perplexed, because with the same code, I get this for macro and this for anything else. It's even handling posts with multiple categories correctly and the read more tag best I can tell. What version of Hugo are you running?

@pratik Can you try removing the reference to the search partial as a test? I have the exact code (except without search partial) I just sent to you running and working.

I’m addicted to milkshakes. Have been since I was a kid. I’m sure part of it is related to good memories, but there is not much bad in life that a good milkshake can’t cure.

Finished reading: Masters of the Air MTI by Donald L. Miller 📚

I wanted to read this after watching Masters of the Air, and I enjoyed it immensely. It does get into bomber warfare philosophy/morality, but manages to do it with an even hand. I would’ve loved to meet those incredible men and women.

Getting back into the swing of things after a family vacation to catch some Braves games. I always have a little trouble focusing for the first day or two after a trip. Maybe that means all vacations should be longer?

Good things from @lmika for those of you who would like a sidebar for the blogroll in Tiny Theme.

Release version 1.1.1 of Sidebar for Tiny Theme. You’ll need to upgrade Tiny Theme to version 2.7.4 or later to use it, but the good news is that it’s no longer replacing any templates of Tiny Theme itself. It’s all now working with hooks, which is a much nicer way of doing things.

It’s a couple generations old, but I grabbed a very lightly used Fujifilm X100F. As a beginner-ish, it’s such an appealing camera. I’m still learning my way around it and playing with settings/recipes, but I can definitely see myself using it often.

I’ve enjoyed using Kagi for search, but it’s not quite worth the subscription price for me yet. I found myself needing other search engines just enough for it to be annoying. I’m sure it’ll improve over time and I look forward to giving it another chance in the future.
