For those who haven’t noticed, I’m blogging more regularly in German again πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ, the last days even more often in German than in English. And this although there will be much less people reading these articles. Somehow it is much easier for me to write texts in my mother tongue. The words flow much …

That’s really interesting. Even though my mother tongue is clearly not English, sometimes I find it much easier to express some thoughts in English rather in Portuguese. I feel the best for me would be to write in both at the same time but that’s obviously not good for readers πŸ˜‚

Today I finished watching “Please Like Me” and I must say it’s a great short show that addresses some pertinent issues. On other news, I went to the hospital to make a few exams, including Covid-19’s swab test. It wasn’t a pleasant experience.

That’ll be hard to do with Hugo. There’s no way to tell it to use absolute URLs in the feeds only. I’ll need to set up an extra step of some kind. I’ll check it out.I use a partial in my Hugo theme to replace relative links with absolute links in the content in XML (RSS) and JSON (JSON Feed, …

Wow! Thanks Jan. I’m still trying to understand why replacing links that start with / work because my feed was printing relative URLs with ... It seems to work though. I’m happy 🀯

There are some srcsets from some older articles that have relative URLs but let’s hope no one will take a look at those old posts. Maybe I’ll try to figure out a way to parse those attributes. Would be a bit more complicated though.

Thanks 😁

One thing: my feed reader has a hard time handling the relative image URLs in your RSS…

Thanks for letting me know that. I didn’t know that was an issue. May I ask which RSS reader you’re using? That’ll be hard to do with Hugo. There’s no way to tell it to use absolute URLs in the feeds only. I’ll need to set up an extra step of some kind. I’ll check it out.

(Also, I couldn’t help but notice that RSS items lack the β€œcontext” that makes replies and such so much more understandable. Not a huge issue, just thought I’d let you know.)

Interesting, I noticed today my ActivityPub feeds had that problem and I already fixed them to include the “reply” part. I’m not aware if the RSS can have that kind of context. Can they? Also, just checked and the JSON feeds don’t support that kind of things. However, my page’s all use microformats and I just checked and they’re correctly parsed.
