@Friendica Support

I am having issues trying to upload photos to my goblinforge page, it seems to work fine, (no errors) I just end up w... show more

identi.ca is using pump.io. We don't natively speak this protocol.

ok thanks are we using Activity pub instead then.?

@Paul Sutton Friendica supports several protocols, there is something in the wiki here: https://github.com/friendica/friendica/wiki/Protocol

Basically Friendica can communicate with Friendica, diaspora red, hubzilla, GNU Social, StatusNet, Mastodon, pleroma, socialhome, ganggo and all platforms that use the same protocols.

In fact we are using ActivityPub, OStatus, Diaspora and DFRN. But identi.ca doesn't speak any of those protocols.

@Michael Vogel for me the wiki article I linked to is a bit confusing in regards of that. Maybe we should add a line in top just stating the protocols Friendica uses and then specifying in detail below, I guess the article is either aiming at something else or outdated.

It is totally outdated.

@Michael Vogel I do not feel able to write a new article, but I could just remove all I think is wrong and add the sentence with the procols you mentioned.
