✨ v0.11.5 is now available!

This release includes several improvements, bug fixes and more! #pixelfed

Instagram Inhibits Inclusion

They changed the account data export schema (json) in a way that makes it more challenging to parse/structure your own data/posts.

✅ Challenge Accepted

Not only are we working on Instagram Import, we're also reaching out to NOYB regarding challenging IG data exports to meet EU regulations.

Thanks to @NGIZero for suggesting NOYB, we're ready to fight for data sovereignty.

Impressed with Nostr when it comes to login with ONE identity and use it in ANY app. It allows users to try as many apps as they want without creating new accounts one each of them

That is still the main headache to many activitypub fediverse users that will probably never be solved

@atomicpoet why can’t I visit a #pixelfed website and just browse images without logging in?

This feels like Instagram - forcing me to create an account and login. Walling me off from just scrolling pictures feels coercive.

Maybe I’m confused and not “walled off” but it certainly wasn’t obvious to me how to do it when I visited and

I’m trying to experience the Fediverse like a “normal” non-techie and the UX remains a hurdle.

CORS error from Pixelfed's OAuth token endpoint

People are understanding...

#DuckDuckGo is a search engine.
#Friendica is a journal to share with your friend.
#PixelFed is a public photo album.
#Mastodon are micro-blogging websites [sic].

They all are not companies advertising.

Do you want to display a Mastodon account's public posts filtered by hashtag?

There's a way to do it using their profile page's web address:

1. Go to the account's original page on the web (more info:
2. Add /tagged/(hashtag, but without the #) on the end of the original page's web address

So, for example, if you wanted to see posts on my account tagged with #Pixelfed the address would be:

Agreed! Looking at my #Instagram settings, I actually did this for a variety of words, not just epithets.

It's a great feature to prevent spammers from marketing their various quick-get-rich schemes in the comment section as well.

Hmmm…I wonder if #Pixelfed has this feature‽ I need to check!

Lots of updates coming to the #pixelfedApp later today 🚀

✨ Preserve app settings when switching accounts
