@manton Uh! I need to play with this a little, right off the bat I notice images don't render properly on mobile, they look stretched out. Thank you for providing another "playground" :D

@manton nice!

@Gabz Ah, thanks. I bet the CSS is missing a width: auto somewhere.

@Gabz Fixed it. (It was the height, not the width.)

@manton I chose Archie in Theme's gallery. How can I make it dark? Thanks.

@paulopinto It should automatically switch to the dark version when the reader's operating system is set to dark mode. If you want to always make it dark mode, you can create a custom theme with a config.json file that looks like this. Let me know if you have any questions.

@manton While on the same theme, if I might. Any way to get the social icons working ? Is this another params on the config.json as well ? Thanks.

@maique I just tested the social icons using this config. That'll add them to the footer.

@manton Thank you for taking the time. One step closer to a theme change now…

@manton i cloned Archie as a Custom Theme in order to be able to edit config.json. Now my main page doesn't show my posts. I went to ExampleSite and watched config.toml. How can I convert all those option to my config.json? Or can I have a config.toml like the example one? Thanks.

@paulopinto Don’t clone it. If your blog is set to Archie, you can create a new empty theme and just override config.json or any other template. Much easier and it’ll make sure you’re starting with exactly the same files.

@manton got it! Ready to rock n' roll! Thanks!

@manton Why do I see the same file several times on custom files? I made a change to layouts/_default/single.html and I see 6 or 7 entries.

@paulopinto Sorry about that. This is a bug that can happen the first time you edit a template. If you can delete the duplicates, it shouldn't happen again.

@manton many thanks! A cool feature for the future would be the possibility to write a in-reply-to post and send the webmention automatically. It's in my private wishlist.

@paulopinto I've been thinking about that too. When replying in Micro.blog, it does send a Webmention, but not for mentions or RSVPs yet. Sometimes I will manually create a post (like this one) and use Telegraph to send it.

@manton right. I will modify my theme to include the endpoint and to display received webmentions.

@manton I changed some template files and I would like to test if webmentions are being diplayed on my posts. Can you send a webmention to one of my posts? Thanks.
