⚠️ WE SHIPPED IT! πŸŽ‰

You can now follow remote profiles on Pixelfed instances that have enabled the feature.

1. Search the full url (ie: mastodon.social/@pixelfed)

2. Click the follow button on the results page

3. You will start seeing posts from that account on your home timeline

@pixelfed Can't wait to upgrade my instance with this! πŸ™ƒ

@pixelfed Great! We were waiting for this since forever πŸ˜ƒ

@pixelfed Whoohooo!

Does "that have enabled this feature" mean that pixelfed.de hasn't enabled that feature yet? Because: I can now find someone on pixelfed.de, but if I click "Follow" (see attached screenshot), I am redirected to the remote profile without any error message that the follow action didn't work out...

@anathem We have identified a bug with pixelfed -> pixelfed and pixelfed -> pleroma following. We are working on a fix!

@pixelfed I've successfully tested receiving a post from Mastodon in Pixelfed. Thanks!

I've tried Friendica as well: follow request is accepted by Friendica, but not added to following collection in pixelfed. Post didn't arrive (yet).

As stated above Pleroma doesn't work: it didn't find the profile.

@pixelfed btw same situation as with Friendica is the case for Wordpress/Activitypub, and possibly Peertube as well (can't properly check the latter). I.e. follow request arrives, is seemingly accepted, but that accept isn't send to Pixelfed or doesn't arrive there.

@pixelfed any plans for allowing searches for webfinger handles, not just URLs?

@pixelfed Yeah, but I can not see pixelfed posts from my mastodon account. Any way to fix that?

@pixelfed also...how come clicking follow results in clicking through to the profile rather than actually following?

@brandon The search results page needs to be updated to show a new state on buttons (Follow, Follow Requested and Unfollow). Will be fixed tonight.

@brandon That is a database driver bug, that instance is likely using Postgres. Will be fixed in an upcoming release.

I could follow mastodon.art and others on Mastodon, but not that one.
Unfortunate that pixelfed still struggles with hubzilla (or the other way around)...
