Manual Plugin Installation

There are a few cases when manually installing a WordPress Plugin is appropriate.

  • If you wish to control the placement and the process of installing a WordPress Plugin.
  • If your server does not permit automatic installation of a WordPress Plugin.
  • If you want to try the latest development version.

Installation of a WordPress Plugin manually requires FTP familiarity and the awareness that you may put your site at risk if you install a WordPress Plugin incompatible with the current version or from an unreliable source.

Backup your site completely before proceeding.

To install a WordPress Plugin manually:

  • Download your WordPress Plugin to your desktop.
  • If downloaded as a zip archive, extract the Plugin folder to your desktop.
  • With your FTP program, upload the Plugin folder to the wp-content/plugins folder in your WordPress directory online.
  • Go to Plugins screen and find the newly uploaded Plugin in the list.
  • Click Activate to activate it.

What is “ActivityPub for WordPress”

ActivityPub for WordPress extends WordPress with some Fediverse features, but it does not compete with platforms like Friendica or Mastodon. If you want to run a decentralized social network, please use Mastodon or GNU social.

What are the differences between this plugin and Pterotype?

Compatibility

ActivityPub for WordPress is compatible with OStatus and IndieWeb plugin suites. Pterotype is incompatible with the standalone WebFinger plugin, so it can’t be run together with OStatus.

Custom tables

Pterotype creates/uses a bunch of custom tables, ActivityPub for WordPress only uses the native tables and adds as little meta data as possible.

What if you are running your blog in a subdirectory?

In order for webfinger to work, it must be mapped to the root directory of the URL on which your blog resides.

Apache

Add the following to the .htaccess file in the root directory:

RedirectMatch "^\/\.well-known(.*)$" "\/blog\/\.well-known$1"

Where ‘blog’ is the path to the subdirectory at which your blog resides.

Nginx

Add the following to the site.conf in sites-available:

location ~* /.well-known {
    allow all;
    try_files $uri $uri/ /blog/?$args;
}

Where ‘blog’ is the path to the subdirectory at which your blog resides.

The indieweb and fediverse communities are doing great work and need to be acknowledged this plugin works well and the devs are constantly improving it

With this plugin your posts appear automatically on Mastodon. Replies on Mastodon becomes comments on your post. Really, it couldn't be easier.

Was able to subscribe to my WP weblog from Mastodon, post, and then all the replies went back as comments to my weblog post. Just lovely.

<p>I am changing my review because not only has the issue of what to do if your blog is in a subdirectory been solved, but the solution is a tiny simple little snippet of code. This is now within reach for the vast majority. Now that it is working, it works like a dream. Anybody who has to manage multiple social media presences should use this, and even if you just have one, this takes a few steps off your to-do list and will save you lots of time. Definitely install this on your site. BTW, this is also good because you really want to nurture your relationship with federated platforms. If you're concerned about both free speech for real and fighting the spread of disinformation, federated platforms are the present and the future.  Support this. Spend on this. Seriously.</p>
