@jw I don't remember hearing anything about that and didn't notice it in my testing... Maybe @aaronpk can answer definitively.
It will post the first page of recent photos, but not everything. Is that bad? Most people ask me to add a feature so they can import the entire history, which I've never gotten around to building. It would be much easier to change this to not import anything from before you started using OYG.
@kemayo Be careful what you wish for. WithKnown strips the hashtags for some reason and it creates all sorts of difficulties with the RSS coming into here. I need to find the time to dig into what Known is doing.
@aaronpk I’m using JSON mode, because simple mode + the wordpress micropub plugin just didn't-work with actually posting the images... so I can confirm that autolinking isn't happening in that situation, at least.
@aaronpk So, my logic for manually linking it would be that for, e.g. cross posting to micro.blog, autolinking the plain-text “@aaronpk” might not wind up referencing the user you intended. Forcing a hyperlink to the original instagram user is more reliable...
@aaronpk I took care of it already via some manual shuffling around, thanks! Though if you're tweaking it... arguably the test-post it did wasn't well-tested, insofar as the image failed to upload, but passed anyway by virtue of being a post at all.
@aaronpk@manton Oh! I didn’t realize it was only the first page of new photos; It freaked me out so much When it began posting of previous photos that I just turned it off. I really only want it to start posting photos after I connect it, if that makes sense.
@aaronpk There's probably a notable set of people who're switching from manually-mirroring to automation, and that's the crowd who're going to be annoyed by suddenly having 15 duplicate posts. (It me.)
@aaronpk@jw I could see wanting to have a more explicit "post all of these" button, so the default is just new photos. We added batch import from Instagram archives in Micro.blog for macOS, but that's not available to non-Mac users, so full import from OwnYourGram would be really useful too.
