Am I missing something here or is this not possible? I want my link to show verified when someone searches my name via Mastodon.
I want my micro.blog site link to also show verified on the fediverse profile side. I do use a custom domain: https://bourbonbyte.com
Below screenshot shows some of my old mastodon accounts with the verification working. Is a nice trust signal when folks are searching.
Thanks in advance!
I don’t think it is currently possible, right @manton ?
This is a strange one because it should be possible, but I think there is something unusual with caching on the Mastodon side, where Mastodon does not re-check a blog for whether it’s verified.
However, it does require a little set up first. The easiest way is to install the “Meta tags” plug-in on Micro.blog and then enter something like the following:
<link rel="me" href="https://mastodon.social/@your-username">
If Mastodon doesn’t notice the change soon, you can also try clicking in Micro.blog → Account → Update Settings, which will tell Mastodon that you’ve made a change to your profile.
Sorry, I think I totally misunderstood your question! Apologies. My instructions were for making sure a web site on another Mastodon account is verified.
For Mastodon showing a fediverse account hosted on Micro.blog… Yeah, I don’t know why that doesn’t just work on Mastodon by default. We may need to dig into this more.
Thanks all for the follow up! For sure not high priority @manton but would be nice to see in the future
