@mj_designthinks @jontvrdik Hi, thanks for the shout-out. I want to let you know that I made a huge mistake in the directions: When you set up the app in Mastodon, you actually *shouldn’t* use the full URL from the IFTTT webhooks, just the home page, because it gets linked from the post’s standalone page.

UPDATE: I MESSED UP THESE DIRECTIONS. Badly. The app website shouldn’t be your full webhook URL, because that actually gets linked to on the standalone web view of the post.

Thank you so much to @h3rb1 for pointing out my mistake!

I’ve updated the article, and I’ve edited the Mastodon post with the screenshots, and I’m trying to reach everyone who replied, boosted or liked the post

I’m so sorry I made the bad call, and I’m so sorry I didn’t see it sooner.

As terrible as the old remote interaction workflow was, the new method of showing a URL and telling the user to copy and paste it is so much worse.

Follow, reply, boost, whatever. The pop-up to send you over to your own instance was a pain. But the pop-up telling you how to work around it is like putting up a sign telling people how to get to the back entrance instead of fixing the door.

All I wanted to do was fix a pair of broken links. Then I went down the rabbit hole trying to figure out why digital editions of 's entire line seemed to have disappeared from the net.

Review of Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 ★★★★☆ I liked Season 3 a lot better than season 2. It finally got to be its own Trek. And they did some really interesting things with the future of the ‘verse and how the Discovery crew adapted to it.

I finally added some screenshots (and more troubleshooting tips) to my guide on how to post to #Mastodon from anything (including #RSS, #WordPress etc.) using #IFTTT

How to Post to Mastodon From Anything Using IFTTT

(Incidentally: I built a new recipe from scratch to make sure I wasn’t missing any steps and tried to publish it as a reusable applet, but it turns out IFTTT won’t let you publish applets that use webhooks.)

Fixed *part* of my blog’s ActivityPub setup and now you can find @kelson and its recent posts, but it’s not turning up specific posts in search yet.

I did successfully boost a blog post, judging by the 10 minutes of hits from mastodon/pleroma/etc servers!

I’m using this #ActivityPub plugin for #WordPress https://wordpress.org/plugins/activitypub/ and I’m working out conflicts with Let’s Encrypt and subfolders and something else, possibly caching

On Wandering.shop

To deal with the combination of #LetsEncrypt and using #WordPress in a #subdirectory, I’m using this in my .htaccess at the top level of the site:

RewriteRule ^.well-known/(host-meta|webfinger|nodeinfo|x-nodeinfo) /journal/.well-known/$1 [L]

This is to ensure that *only* the webfinger and nodeinfo endpoints are forwarded to the blog where the #ActivityPub plugin picks them up, and Let’s Encrypt will find .acme-challenge and be able to renew my TLS cert when the time comes.

I’m not sure yet why searching for an individual post doesn’t work. I’m going to get back to $dayJob for the afternoon & take another look at that part later.

This beetle landed on my car window as I was about to start, then climbed onto the top of the car. I had to look. (Too bad I don’t drive a VW Beetle.)

A very round, orange-red insect with antennae.

I went on a hike today, up in the coastal hills near Los Angeles. I took a trail along a (dry) streambed up through a canyon, which is variously known as George F. Canyon or Georgeff Canyon. No one knows who George (or Georgeff) was – they just found it on an old map when they dedicated the nature preserve.

There was SO. MUCH. POISON OAK. You really do not want to stray much from the path here!

Finally got the archvie for my main birdsite account. Still waiting for the two alts I requested at the same time, one of which is a lot smaller than the main.

FWIW I do have older archives (from when I used the site more), plus an informal archive of more recent posts generated through IFTTT recipes, I just wanted to make sure I had a clean copy of each.
