Identity verification links


I have a similar request to arcandio’s in Sidebar Links / Navigation.

My goal is to allow mastodon to mark my profile links as ‘verified’. Mastodon does this by looking for a link back to your profile page with the ‘rel’ attribute set to ‘me’. To quote the documentation:

You can verify yourself as the owner of the links in your profile metadata . For that, the linked website must contain a link back to your Mastodon profile. The link back must have a rel="me" attribute.

This could be accomplished in a variety of ways, here are a couple I’ve found.

any other ideas?

Thank you

you could try the solution here: Active link to other webpage in Pinned Post on landing page?

It would require something like this, as the description and title both appear to sanitize html so there is no way to add a hidden anchor element in either of those.

If you don’t want a link displayed, you could use the same solution but select the blog-title element and append a child link with some css for display:none;

This is now possible by adding the link to your blog description. More details in this thread:
