Changing post name/URL not updating on the Mastodon side #237
easiest just to show this as a screenshot.
I have mistitled a blog post so I changed the title and the slug. I load my profile in mastodon and it has the old title and url. so if I click the link it 404's because I changed it. if I search the updated url from mastodon it does not show the new data.

Another solution (probably a good middle-ground) would be to send out ID + slug (Medium style) URLs to the fediverse, and only parse the ID on the WF end to retrieve the post. That would keep semi-pretty URLs, at least.
Otherwise, the least-ideal solution would be to just track slug changes and redirect people on the WF side. This isn't ideal, because as soon as a new post uses an old (redirecting) slug, that redirect gets removed.
We'll need to see how much work this'll involve and then we can get it in.
