Statuslog now spans more of the Fediverse

One of the most often-requested Statuslog features is the ability to automatically post status updates to Mastodon instances other than social.lol (which has been the hard-coded default since The Beginning). As of today, though, you can now specify any instance you’d like! In the Statuslog preference area, you’ll see a text field where you can plop in the name of any instance. If you’re already using social.lol and want to switch to another, just disable the current setup with social.lol (via the Disable button), type the name of the desired instance, and click the Enable button. You’ll then go through the brief application authorization process, and when that’s finished you’ll be good to go.

This should work on all Mastodon instances (unless some have disabled the ability for third-party apps to be used) as well as any other Fediverse platforms that use Mastodon-compatible APIs.

Happy Statuslogging!
