Hi. Thanks for a fantastic plugin!

At least it sounds fantastic :D but I can't seem to get it to work :(

I installed it more than I week ago and I've published a post since. Still, In my Mastodon instance (octodon.social) I've searched for both of the adresses the plugin says I can search for many times (@whatevs@blogg.forteller.net and https://blogg.forteller.net/author/admin/) and still nothing shows up.

I guess this is unrelated, but I even get zero results when searching for the new post I've published, even though I have linked to it in a normal toot :/

Am I doing anything wrong, or is this a bug? Thanks!

WebFinger seems not configured correctly on your site: https://client.webfinger.net/lookup?resource=whatevs%40blogg.forteller.net

  • Have you enabled "pretty permalinks"?
  • Do you run your website on NGINX? #5
  • Is there a .well-known folder in your webspace?

Thanks for the help!

Have you enabled "pretty permalinks"?

My posts are on URL/Year/Title, that's a pretty permalink, right?

Do you run your website on NGINX?

I don't know. I have it on Dreamhost. How can I know?

Is there a .well-known folder in your webspace?

Yes.

Now I've also installed the WebFinger extension. Do I need that too for this to work?

I don't think so, no. I have the ActivityPub plugin installed and working and I don't have the WebFinger plugin installed.

Do you run your website on NGINX?

According to builtwith, your site is running Apache.

Is there a .well-known folder in your webspace?

Something seems to be wrong here, as if you access either:

https://blogg.forteller.net/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:admin@blogg.forteller.net
https://blogg.forteller.net/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:whatevs@blogg.forteller.net

You get an error 'missing "resource" parameter'. (You should get something like at this link: https://bit.doubleloop.net/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:bit@bit.doubleloop.net). What happens if you remove the WebFinger plugin and try those links?

(Side note: is your account name whatevs or admin?)
