Trying to verify my website on my Mastodon profile but no luck. Added a link with rel="me" to my Mastodon profile on my site but no checkmark showing here. What am I doing wrong?
for mine there was a bit of lag.
@basil i thought there might be a delay as there's no way to request a manual check but it's been more than 24 hours now
@markosaric is this on markosaric.com
Cos I'm not seeing the rel="me"
@basil it was actually on plausible.io. I added a Mastodon link to our footer. Will add to my own site now too
@markosaric maybe it's the trailing / in the profile field. Stranger things have happened...?
@basil true, i'll wait a bit longer
I remember mine not working first time either but can't, for the life of me, remember why.
Did you add the website to your Mastodon profile before adding rel="me"?
If yes remove the link from your profile, then try adding it back again
@ashlk yes!! great tip/hack! works now :) thanks!
@markosaric you stuck it in the <head>?
@wintermute it works now. had to remove the site from Mastodon and add it again for Mastodon to do the check whether I've added the link or not
@markosaric aah that makes sense. Sort of. 👍🏼🤘🏼
@markosaric it says verified when I look at your profile??
@paulgit yes, it works now. had to remove the site from Mastodon and add it again for Mastodon to do the check whether I've added the link or not
