Major Features

Fediverse verification (#771)

Verify that your WriteFreely blog on fediverse platforms like Mastodon! Simply go to your blog's Customize page under the Verification section, and enter your fediverse handle or URL. It will place an invisible tag on your blog, so the other platform can verify that the blog is yours. You can also insert a rel="me" link in your blog bio.

Contact Page (#772)

Admins on multi-user instances can add a Contact page, so members and visitors know how to get in touch. Add your email address, fediverse handle, or any other method you want people to know to reach you!
