Thank's for such a useful posting. It really helped me a lot in terms of the behind-the-scenes work I needed to do, and with the front-of-curtain stuff (how I could make things look).
The way in which you showed 'replies', 'likes', and 'shares' was really clever IMHO.
Now I need to automate a few things, whilst checking that my 'micro-formatting' is correct all the time. I hit a brick wall for weeks, trying to debug why my 'replies' and 'likes' weren't showing up on Aaron P's test site. Eventually, I tracked it down to an errant
p-name in one of the
<div> classes I was using.
In particular, you also converted me to Brid.gy. Thanks for that too.
