Migrating from Pterotype #75

Hey all,

I've been using Pterotype for one of my sites for some time. While it works pretty well, unfortunately the project has fallen into an unmaintained status, with no conceivable updates happening anytime soon.

Given that my blog ( has a pretty sizable following across the fediverse, I was wondering whether there was anything that could be done to migrate the data being used by the Pterotype plugin to instead be used by wordpress-activitypub. Aside from the manual process of moving data from one place to another, what kind of considerations would need to be made? How different are the database schemas between Pterotype, and this one?

Please let me know!

Oh: pterotype-project/pterotype#18 (comment)

I will have a look how much work it is... But my plugin is very light weight and does work witch most of the WP Core data. I think the only thing that has to be migrated is the followers list.

@DeadSuperHero can you tell me how much followers you have?

Hey @pfefferle , thanks for getting back to me!

can you tell me how much followers you have?

If this endpoint is any accurate indication, it appears that there are approximately 569 followers as of right now.

Won't the most difficult thing be keeping the actor ID, which currently is ? Because if that changes, all implementations will see it as a new actor anyway 🤔
