In case anyone is curious about a sneak peek for whats next on QOTO, I am currently setting up a Matrix chat server with full bridging (so not only can you join chats on other matrix servers but you can also join them on other protocols like IRC and XMPP)... I will also most likely create a seperate XMPP server for those who want it.
@freemo I don't quite know why, but the matrix server isn't working with the Syphon client - going by the errors, I'd guess the server is sending HTML content somewhere that Syphon doesn't expect it.
Seems to be working once I switched to Element though
@freemo I can’t get the markdown to work. There’s supposed to be a line break after the close paren and the close angle bracket
@khird ok i reset matrix.. anyway yea if you specify the home server as “matrix.qoto.org” it should work… it is trying to ping the mastodon instance. It works on element because i have that set as the default.
@freemo Ahh okay I see. It’s a problem with Syphon.
When I signed up, I used matrix.qoto.org. But then it gave my fully qualified username as khird:qoto.org. Syphon (probably incorrectly) proceeded to send future requests to qoto.org instead. I logged out and back in as khird:matrix.qoto.org and it seems to be working.
@khird It is easily overlooked as the documentation only mentions the DNS method briefly with a link to the spec. Most servers use the .well-known approach to publishing the link.
