@manton I know I can pull cross-posting front matter details, but is there a way to enable "reply on Mastodon" options for those of us who use M.b's built-in Fediverse stuff? Does that make sense?

@Mtt It makes sense, but I’m not sure where the link would go… Maybe there should be a special version of the M.b conversation page that has Mastodon options.

@Mtt As @manton pointed out, we need more than just a link. Micro.blog would have to ask the visitor where they want to go. Similar to what Mastodon does when you're trying to reply from a server you're not logged in to:

Mastodon shows a modal window with the title Reply to Matt Langford's post. The text says: With an account on Mastodon, you can respond to this post. You are not logged in to this server. Where is your account hosted?

@sod Maybe having something like that on the conversation page would work?

@sod @Mtt Thinking about this more, we probably should built some kind of “view this on Mastodon” functionality. It’s currently too hard to find things across servers.

@manton What if the conversation page included the “follow from Mastodon” box you see here? Could use the same url parameter to show/hide it.

@manton this would be a great improvement for Micro.blog!

@manton @Mtt Yeah! Support the other way around would also be nice. For the times when one stumbles upon an interesting profile on a Mastodon server, I want to tap the Follow button, input micro.blog, hit Take me home, and end up on Micro.blog with that profile shown for easy following.

@sod That is supposed to work. I must’ve missed something, I’ll fix that.
