how do i create hyperlink for a toot along with my username ? example: when you click hyperlink it must show @myusername in toot box. this hyperlink does not show or person cannot send direct message using this https://mstdn.social/web/statuses/new/@gvian
There is no Mastodon endpoint that offers this as far as I know. Furthermore, the link you’ve given only works if you’re logged in on mstdn.social, and not from any other instance.
hello @Claire if possible can you please try again this hyperlink: https://mstdn.social/web/statuses/new/@email@example.com
It’s the same, https://mstdn.social/web/statuses/new/ is the compose form within the Web UI available to people logged into mstdn.social, and nobody else.
I’m afraid there is no proper way to do what you want.
There is the
share endpoint that lets you pre-fill the text: https://mstdn.social/share?text=@firstname.lastname@example.org but it still requires the person clicking the link to be logged into mstdn.social for it to work.
