!Friendica Support Is it possible, that the probe/follow function is broken in the current stable release? I want to follow some contacts from social.bund.de from the contacts search field in /contact. But I get only the .rss feed as contact or the network type cannot be determined. This happens also with other Mastodon profiles.
Hello.. I have just tried to search and then follow @bsi@social.bund.de --> seemed to work. (using 2022.10 stable)

Which format have you tried? Can you give an example?

I have tried "@BMWK@social.bund.de" and BMWK@social.bund.de, which result in network type unknown. When I try https://social.bund.de/@BMWK it says it is Mastodon in the request window. But when I press "Follow", it says I am connected with network type RSS/Atom.
Is it some misconfiguration? How can I debug this?

Oh interesting, before I press follow, it is https://freunde.ma-nic.de/contact/276173 (mastodon contact type), but after that it is https://freunde.ma-nic.de/contact/277464 (RSS type with another number). Do I need to clean up my contact table?
