Hi, I’m trying to connect my WP blog to m.b. In brief I don’t want all short posts to appear on WP main feed. I see categories can be used to filter the feed but im struggling to understand this. If anyone has advice or links, I would be very thankful as I’m not very techy.

@tomc Are you trying to send things from WP to Micro.blog, or vice versa?

@tomc If you only want posts to show here you can delete the post from WP once posted. The Ultimate Category Excluder plug-in allows you to block a category from being displayed.

Do you want to keep microblog posts available in a WP menu or in the sidebar on the WP blog?

@tomc Okay. If you have a WP category for your short posts, you can find the feed by adding /feed to the end of the category URL. Copy that URL and go to the Feeds & Cross-posting page on M.b. Pastel the URL in the box that says "RSS or JSON Feed" and click the button that says "Add Feed."

@tomc Replies made from the Micro.blog interface on the web or one of the apps are hosted on Micro.blog. Therefore, they will never show up in your main WordPress feed unless you explicitly make that happen (by importing the replies into WordPress).

@sod Thank you so much for advice. I think I have cobbled together the feed from my WP blog.. But don't think the pics work as I don't have a plan here.. Anyway Ill keep tweaking and see what happens.. I would be much happier to post everything here but for the mo its not possible..

@tomc Yay! Images work on the free plan, and I see them alright on your timeline. 😊

@sod The first one turned up as a link and thought this won't please my adoring public 🤣 now that it appears as pic I don't want to anger the m.b gods so ill quietly tip toe away.. haha.

@tomc Yeah, backing away slowly is sometimes the best tactic. 😆 Have you read Timeline display rules? That might explain why the first one turned up as a link. Maybe.

@sod no I didn’t see that. I saw the general help for feeds. But now it’s sorted I’m not touching anything! 😀
