@pfefferle Hello. And thank you for the plugin here. Though I'm a little confused. I can see your @matthias on your bloeg, but I can't seem to see your posts yet on . Am I doing something wrong? or is there something missing?

Usually, if I paste a post ID in Mastodon search bar, the post can be displayed. But I'm not sure it's working. For example with this post: pfefferle.org/yiid-your-intern

Thnaks in advance for your help.

@xuv @matthias hey :)

you can't see any posts, because no one on your mastodon instance has followed me yet, so it hasn't started to push updates to it. If I release a new blog-post, you will (hopefully) receive it ;)

This is a confusing behavior, but I do not have a good workaround for now.


@pfefferle @matthias Hello Matthias. Thanks for that explanation. I'm aware of this limitation. There is one way to work around it. I should take one of your previous post url and paste it in Mastodon search bar and even if I'm not following you or anything, Mastodon finds it and I can then interact with that post. But this does not seem work with any account pushed by the Wordpress ActivityPub plugin. Do you know why?

@xuv @matthias ah, I see! You are right and I found the problem... should be fixed in the next version! Thanks for bringing it up! 🙂

@pfefferle @matthias Awesome. Just curious, from a tech perspective, what should happen and that is not happening?

@xuv @matthias I had a wrong syntax for the post JSON files... I used a „create“ action with the „note“ as main object but it has to be a „note“ action.

@xuv @matthias you can see it if you make a get request on the article URL with the Accept header „application/activity+json“

@pfefferle @matthias Thanks for the fix. Works as expected now with 0.7.2 version of the plugin.

One thing I also noticed is when I follow a Wordpress account, it says it's following it, but when I reload Mastodon, it says: "Waiting for approval". I've tried with @xuv@polymorph.cool for example. Is there something I'm missing?

@pfefferle @xuv@polymorph.cool Hmm. This is weird. I tested with you account and indeed, it works. How is this not working with my Wordpress instaance. How come it shows "pending approval"? Any way I could debug this? Thx

Hello @pfefferle@mastodon.social Sorry to bring this up again. But I have the latest ActivityPub plugin installed on multiple Wordpress instances and still have the same issue. For example, if I try to follow your @pfefferle@notiz.blog account, and I refresh the page, this is what I see: "Cancel Follow Request". The follow is never made. And I never get the updates on your blog. Very weird. Do you have an idea what might be happening?

@pfefferle@mastodon.social @pfefferle@notiz.blog By the way, from what I could tell from our server logs, many instances were trying to reach WP users AP inbox and outbox and received 403 in return. Don't know if it's related.

@xuv @pfefferle I hope I fixed it with v0.10.1 ... can you verify the fix?

@pfefferle@mastodon.social @pfefferle@notiz.blog oh great. Thanks, will test this week. Thank you already for the quick reaction.

@pfefferle@mastodon.social @pfefferle@notiz.blog I confirm that it works on my blog. Thank you for that fix. Quite a valuable addition
