Adding a Mastodon Verification Link

Is there a way to add HTML to my links at the top of the page?
I want to add a rel=me anchor tag for Mastodon verification
e.g.
<a rel="me" href="https://mastodon.social/@Uhnnohn">Mastodon</a>

It's the rel="me" attribute I cannot figure out how to add to the link

replace the “a” tag with “link” and you don’t need anything past the closing >

No, that doesn't work. It tries to go to a local link when you do that. Then you get a page not found 404 error. I tried with double, single, and no quotes around the attributes.

Maybe you can try adding the inside the head and not in the menu. It's just like for IndieWeb: https://indielogin.com/setup

You'll need to fork an editable copy of the template you are using, if you haven't already, then add the line to the head.html template file.

Bummer. I'm trying not to start maintaining my own templates but using the defaults.

Unfortunately if you want to customize the source code of your site, you'll need to fork a copy of your template.

Now you can add this link as-is to any post or page, just copy in the source code directly into the post or page. But adding to the menu will require tweaking the template

You can create one post in Blot and add your mastodon user name and it will pick it up quickly:

You can find me here on Mastodon
