About this Plugin

One of the primary ways I find new accounts to follow is by eavesdropping on other people’s favorites. Many platforms make favorites public but Mastodon doesn’t (yet?). I wanted to show my favorite toots publicly so that people can look through them. I’m hoping you’ll make your favorite toots public this way too.

FAQ

Why does this plugin exist?

By default Mastodon does not expose an account’s favorite toots. By using this plugin, you’re able to share your favorite toots on your website.

How do I determine my Mastodon instance URL?

Your Mastodon instance URL is usually the domain name that appears in your username. For example, my Mastodon username is @cdevroe@mastodon.social so my instance URL is mastodon.social.

Where do I get an Mastodon API key?

  1. Log into your Mastodon instance.
  2. Click Preferences > Development
  3. Choose “ New application”
  4. Application name: Favorite Toots WordPress (or, anything you’d like)
  5. Application Website: Your website URL
  6. Redirect URI: (leave as-is)
  7. Scopes: read:bookmarks read:favourites read:statuses
  8. Click Save.
  9. Copy and paste your “ Access Token” into the settings of the Favorite Toots plugin at Settings > Favorite Toots.
