I have spent quite some time setting up the ActivityPub Plugin and getting it to work. For me the issue was twofold:
- Since the blog runs in a subdirectory “/blog”, I needed to redirect the “/.well-known” dir to “/blog/.well-known”, which I did with a simple .htaccess file.
- The other issue was harder to figure out, but eventually I found out that the plugin only works with pretty Permalinks enabled! So now we have pretty URLs on oelna.de, decades later.
And if I understand this correctly, readers should now be able to follow firstname.lastname@example.org on Mastodon and see new posts on this blog in their timelines. Success, I guess?
