"Learn Pleroma the Hard Way"
@dansup I cant tell if this is serious or not.
He wants documentation on how to click a follow button??
@dansup wait why this thread on an account with this bio
@dansup but like
is pleroma a art
@ben yes, it a masterpiece. php forced lain to make a new implementation 😂
@dansup Does Pleroma not show an in-app follow button?
@Gargron @dansup the general complaint seems to be that the remote follow button requires loading that remote web page then being redirected back to your own site -- the fact that you can search for a URL or address directly is not intuitive, nor is it well-documented in the majority of existing user guides.
FWIW looking back at the Mastodon documentation that I wrote, it seems even I gave it a scant two paragraphs, and perhaps that concept should be explained in more depth for new users... https://docs.joinmastodon.org/user/network/#follow
@dansup I find it hard to believe that Zed Shaw has very strong opinions on something he doesn’t understand. /s
He’s a super smart guy, but I will never understand why he does this.
I haven't been on Facebook for years but even when I was I only used it occasionally and I would often find it bewildering. People I know who use it all the time never understood why a "computer guy" like me didn't find it easy.
Same goes with most things Google actually. Google shit seems far more user hostile to me than anything in the fediverse but people put up with it because Google.
