Overview

Redirect Mastodon URLs from other instances to your own instance.

One thing that’s a bit of a hassle with Mastodon is that you can’t immediately follow people on other instances: you have to copy the username and search for it on the instance that hosts your account. Same story with favoriting and boosting their posts, when viewed on their instance’s URL. To make this easier, this extension exists. Press the button, and you’ll be taken to the same account or status update you were viewing, but served on the Masto instance your account is on.

Doesn't work at all. Clicking the button accomplishes nothing.

That depends on which type of page you are on. If you are on an overview page for example, this extension won’t be able to redirect. Profile pages on the other hand are supported and should work fine – especially with the detection improvements that landed in 0.3.0. The most recent 0.4.0 version also added support to redirect individual posts. If you are still having issues, please file a bug over at https://github.com/bramus/mastodon-redirector/issues so that I can look into it.

Sometimes goes to the wrong account, but if I go back a page and try again, it gets it right. As Sushubh said, it would be wonderful if it worked on individual posts, too.

Improvements to fetching the username were made in version 0.3.0. Redirecting of posts also works as of 0.4.0. If you find a bug, please file one over at https://github.com/bramus/mastodon-redirector/issues

Too cumbersome. Demands user to find the extension in the menu and click on it to redirect. It's easier to copy/paste at your own server...
