I’m pumped, I got the conversation.js working with a little coaching from @manton. Thanks Manton! Spacing and such is not quite right but it is legible and it will do. Correcting it is a CSS thing and I don’t do CSS in general and specifically on MB. It will do. I also ditched my custom theme and went back to Marfa from Typewriter, cos Marfa has more bells and whistles like pagination and the other themes don’t.
Getting rid of custom themes means I no longer have replies via the third party IntenseDebate service but I think showing replies via webmention are more important for now. It is very nice to see the replies to my drivel right on the page. It makes me feel more Indieweb.
