Fediverse Getting Started – May 2023

I decided to re-write and republish this, so the post can focus on the wider picture of what the Fediverse is.

This has been undertaken following comments / conversations on #Mastodon about people not actually referring to the #Fediverse directly, of which #Mastodon is one of many services. A different video is presented below, along with an infographic and #Hastags to the services listed This list has also been added to the #index page.

Getting started is easy, if you need help please get in touch. I can be contacted on the fediverse via @zleap@qoto.org

Embedding Mastodon Posts

By default. When you embed a post from mastodon in to a WriteAs blog the default width is 400.

I am going to use the embed from my previous post as an example

<iframe src="https://mindly.social/@erinwhalen/109672470870988630/embed" class="mastodon-embed" style="max-width: 100%; border: 0" width="400" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Changing the width to 600 results in, as you would expect a wider post which fits really nicely.

<iframe src="https://mindly.social/@erinwhalen/109672470870988630/embed" class="mastodon-embed" style="max-width: 100%; border: 0" width="600" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

We can go further and add a height element too.

<iframe src="https://mindly.social/@erinwhalen/109672470870988630/embed" class="mastodon-embed" style="max-width: 100%; border: 0" width="600" height="600" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Which allows more of the post to be displayed.

This can, and should be adjusted for better fit, depending on size of the post being embedded.

Hope this is useful to people.

SnapAs : Adding photos to WriteFreely Blogs

As this blog is powered using WriteFreely, I have just found another service that is designed to complement adding pictures to blogs, making this process very simple.

SnapAs allows you to drag and drop a photo and provide the markdown code so that you just copy / paste in this to your blog.

There used to be a tutorial, but this is no longer available, there may be others on peertube.

The video is hosted on Peertube which is a federated and decentralised video sharing platform. There is a video here to explain more about this.

Hope this post is useful.
