Use blocks, and, optionally, “short-form” post types to easily “IndieWebify” your WordPress site.
IndieBlocks registers several blocks (Bookmark, Like, Reply, and Repost, as well as the older Context block) that take a URL and output corresponding microformatted HTML.
In combination with a microformats-compatible theme, these help ensure microformats clients are able to determine a post’s type.
It also comes with “short-form” (Note and Like) custom post types, and a (somewhat experimental) option to add microformats to (all!) block-based themes.
These microformats, in combination with the Webmention protocol, allow for rich cross-site conversations. IndieBlocks comes with its own Webmention implementation, but a separate plugin can be used, too.
IndieBlocks also registers several “theme” blocks (Facepile, Location, Syndication, and Link Preview), to be used in “block theme” templates.
This plugin provides 10 blocks.
- Link Preview
- Facepile Content

How does this plugin interact with the various other IndieWeb plugins?
While IndieBlocks does not depend on any other plugin, it is compatible with, and extends, the Micropub plugin for WordPress. See https://indieblocks.xyz/documentation/micropub-and-indieauth/ for some more information.
IndieBlocks’ Facepile and Syndication blocks also aim to be compatible with, respectively, the Webmention and Syndication Links plugins.
