Just a quick reply to https://www.zylstra.org/blog/2020/01/12339/.

Technically, you could, I think, make those changes “permanent” by hooking into semantic_linkbacks_excerpt, which lets you filter the very same excerpt text. (You could then look for a pattern and replace it, or append something based on what’s already there, and return the modified string. More elaborate filtering is possible, too, by using one of the earlier hooks and essentially overriding the plugin’s own callback function.)

Being able to fetch and display the text surrounding a keyword (or link) would be cool, though. Let’s see if we can come up with something …

“The line affordance under the old text fields was not clear to some users. The line was confused with a divider.” I screamed. This spoke directly to the concern I had expressed months prior. It took Google hundreds of research participants to confirm what I already knew thanks to nothing more than common sense.

This would enable my tiny lightbox solution to do its thing, too.

Users can [now] also add a link for the image in the media & text block.

Didn’t immediately grasp its use, but I guess such a plugin would “allow users to quickly build single-page sites” on top of one and the same WordPress install.

Let’s not throw dollar-cost averaging to the wolves just yet, though. For one thing, it’s the only way most people can invest—by putting away small chunks of every paycheck.

Despite WordPress’s out-of-the-box support for responsive images, this blog doesn’t actually use ‘em, yet. There’s pretty much two reasons for that: (1) I have yet to implement them on my custom front end, and (2) nearly all of my (full-size) images are optimized for file size—thru TinyPNG, usually—and almost always turn out smaller than WordPress’s automatically generated, lower-resolution thumbnails.
