Many thanks for you reply. Yes, I'm very familiar with the principles behind Known and the IndieWeb. I wrote about them here:
"The Importance of The 'Known' Publishing Platform And The Rise Of The Indie Web":
and recorded a podcast episode on the same topic back in October 2014:
I've been using WordPress for a good number of years now and have a setup that for me works very well to provide the POSSE concepts of the IndieWeb. I don't use the actual IndieWeb plugin... but perhaps that is something I'll check out. Thanks for the pointer - I hadn't realized that they had made it simpler than installing a whole bunch of separate plugins.
Thanks again for the reply.
