where it says call back .. thats where you create a new twitter application**creat an app. wil take two days for verification**where it says call back URL, copy that**When done, you click on status update. Sometimes you may not get the twitter account yet, so you may need to enable it in settings

Known

  • How different is known from WordPress** Your combination of social media, static pages and standard blog**Are we able to see all users on the admin portal?***@sadik: yes, we can block abusive users***I am going to give all keys to the server to everyone today @jgmac1106 ***My biggest problem is the mobile upload on Known. The old version of TinyMCE. Being fixed*Zita: are there videos we can watch? Here are the videos:** https://archive.org/details/SendAReplyWithKnown*@sadik seem to know how to connect known to the Twitter pages. Will try it out after this chat.**It is a bit tougher was going to be my next tutorial. Twitter makes you apply for a developer app now. It isbt hard but takes a day or two for Approval
  • Can someone else edit your known space?** Yes, access can be given to people to comment.** But you want to keep your site a single site if you want to use all the IndieWeb features. ** For example go to https:// indieweb.org and login. You enter your domain. If you do a multi-user site this breaks. * I did make one site we can make multiuser for events.. But we can stick to WP for that as well. That was a test run of installing Known*Invites can be sent to people behind comments*You can turn comments on and off

Wiki

  • @Zita: I understand the know as a WIki platform.** @Masssly; probably* I also see the wiki more for the sharing of the data and knowledgebase

Tasks

  • Code of Conduct* I would recommend playing and building yourself before going out to new people* Let's all try to learn something new and share our journey. This way you have experience and mentor texts to people who want to find community. * Bring people to get on board to join the platform** Zita: what would be the advantages for people to sign up?** Sadik: students will have a way to get their field work out there for everyone to use.** Yes Known will have something called service workers which will allow for remote local storage and upload when online** Advantage: you get your own website for free


    • Zita: can convince folks Ghana code club (mostly females)+1** Masssly: rural folks would be an easy target to tap into. Kids would get the opportunity to come online for the first time, not as users only, but also as participants in creating knowledge.+1


    • Webmentions are the big sell. You don't need social networks YoU ARE the social network. Though if you want social network we use POSSE publish on your own site syndicate elsewhere, Twitter, Flickr,


  • One thing, Greg mentioned about offline creating of pages (I’m I right?)** I’m not quite sure how that can work?** I made a tutorial video no offline pages yet… well, you can cut and paste… But made video how to add pages


  • We now to be able to build a model so people can glean at.** What kinds of information should we use.** SADIK:currently existing material from other OR platforms.** masssLY: ANY SPECIFIC KIND OF CONTENT?*** YES to all… Why I said go learn something, use the bookmark and tag, post notes you have, write up the reflection. Use the article post for the long form. *** Then over time, we add great stuff from network to wiki*** So do you guys think we should be specific about the theme of content to upload.?**** Zita: no. let's allow people to put in content they are already working on (from their own field)
    • Immediate tasks. Zita: Documentation of our own learning process to the OER platform. That would make it easier for any new person to come onboard
