[This song](https://www.shazam.com/track/10403896/freedom): simple yet really struck as chord for me tonight.

@macgenie I'm seeing the raw markdown in this post, very odd! @manton, FYI.

And I shall have to listen to the sound of course!

@rosemaryorchard I’ve been experimenting with WordPress and I also tried sharing from Shazam for the first time. And it’s late and I’ve been Lyfting all day. So I claim responsibility for the lack of formatting!

@macgenie I can’t get an uploaded Avatar to work (~200 kb, 1000px-wide .jpg), and now I don’t see how to revert to gravtar. Help!

@macgenie @rosemaryorchard WordPress has to be configured to process the Markdown. Easiest way to fix this is to install the Jetpack plugin and enable it there.

@tantramar Did the profile photo update? There was a glitch this morning that has been fixed. If you still see a problem, send a quick email to help and I can revert it.

@manton if I was trying to move away from Jetpack, are there any other recommendations for Markdown? on

@mrkrndvs There are definitely other WordPress plugins for Markdown, but Jetpack is the one I recommend since I have more experience with it. I think most of the others also work.

@manton I get the reluctance to add Jetpack to your WP site. It adds a ton of bloat, and it’s also a Swiss Army knife that can, sometimes, tear a site down unexpectedly during updates because it’s got its finger in too many pies. I’ve purposely moved more than a few clients away from it.

@manton well, I just moved my whole wp to Micro.blog , so far so good. Now I’m focus in import my IG. Thats gonna take some time. My blog is in Spanish. I liked the minimalist approach and the fact that Micro.blog is mobile 100%. My phone is my main computer.

@manton I’m trying to configure my custom domain. I put your IP address but Godaddy doesn’t recognize it. Micro.blog still says “your custom domain isn’t pointed to MB yet” Do you have a guideline? Thanxs!

@pedroin There can often be a delay of a few hours (depending on how the domain is configured), so if you think everything is correct I'd suggest waiting and trying again. You can also double-check the help page here. Send me a quick email to help if it's still not working.
