How to embed a toot on an external page?


I’ve found some similar issues, but no-one really answered this simple question:

On the blog you often embed toots in your blog posts, but how can one actually do so on their own (external) page?

You can consider I know the exact toot (i.e. user and URL) of the toot I want to embed.

This may also be a good topic for an actual blog post, I guess. :smiley:


Is it not simply using the embed function under the toot itself, e.g.

<iframe src="" class="mastodon-embed" style="max-width: 100%; border: 0" width="400"></iframe><script src="" async="async"></script>


if you click on the details menu for a status, there’s an Embed option


Actually, I get a 404 error when I try to request the embed code for posts in the federation. It works for posts on my instance.


hmm they are not using mastodon them. Just tested with Pleroma and Got 404 Error
