Micro.blog

I hadn’t realised there was an Instagram importer for micro.blog – cool! Does it only work with hosted blogs though?

@vanessa I haven’t used it yet, myself, but I think that ownyourgram posts to a Micropub endpoint, so you shouldn’t need a micro.blog hosted site.

@vanessa I used it with my self-hosted wordpress blog without any problem.

@alans Thanks. I've had trouble setting up a micropub endpoint with my WordPress - the plugin doesn't seem to work, though I believe it's being fixed. I wanted to use Omnibear/Quill/Indiebookclub but haven't been able to yet.

@vishae Excellent, that's what I have. It will be good to have everything on my site.

@vanessa Being able to use Quill and getting a functional media endpoint made a big impact on me — particularly enabling posting from mobile. (Which of course you can already do with WP :) ) I hope the fixes for the WP plugin are eventually helpful for you!

@alans Me, too! I tend to post using the micro.blog app mostly. It does ok and I have a little plugin that opens comments for those posts. The WordPress app didn't allow me to do something I wanted (post type, perhaps), so I don't use it. Otherwise I post from the dashboard - not good on a phone. I'm well into things I really don't understand now, so have to leave it to the Indieweb guys...
