possibility to add a "rel=me" attribute on a navigation link or in a HTML link on the _readme.md


First of all, thank you very much for you awesome projects and your work. I am very happy to use it. If I see something in which I can contribute, I will do it! But now I want to request a feature.

I am trying to "validate" my website on my Mastodon account. Thus I need to add an HTML link with a rel=me attribute. However, when I added it, I check that prose.sh modify it to rel=nofollow.

May it be possible to have an option to add a rel=me attribute on a link of the navigation? If not, may it be possible to allow it on the body of the _readme.md?

I don't know if the modification that prose.sh does is for something important I am not keeping in mind, but I hope it may be done.

Thank you for your work and your time!

Hi! I'll look into this tonight.

Would it be acceptable to have rel="me nofollow"?

I imagine it have to be acceptable. In the case of Mastodon validation on links, it just say it needs to have "me" attribute, but not specify this attribute must be only "me".

If you apply the patch, notice me and I will confirm to you. However, if it only works with "rel=me" and nothing, it may be a reason to open another issue, but on Mastodon repo.

Thank you ~erock!

This fix has been deployed. Please try again and let me know if it works.

~ivanhercaz 1 year, 5 months ago

Nice! It works ~erock! Mastodon validate correctly the link with both values on rel.

Thank you very much for your work!

At least, until I can donate a bit, I want to thank you announcing on my blog how ease is to verify a prose.sh blog with Mastodon and how fast have you been attending my suggestion 1. It is Spanish, but I hope it helps to let know more people how useful is prose.sh.
