website verified green checked on Mastodon

How to have your WordPress website verified on Mastodon

  1. Log in to your WordPress website.
  2. Go to Appearance -> Theme File Editor.
  3. Go to the Theme Header file.
  4. Go back to your Mastodon Profile and click on Edit.
  5. Write “Website” as label and the home page to your website as content.
  6. Copy the link that you see under “Verification”.
  7. Paste it in your website’s Theme Header file inside the head tags. (<head>YourVerificationLink</head>).
  8. Save the file.
  9. Go to your Mastodon profile and save your profile.
  10. Refresh the page of your Mastodon profile. The green check will show up. For me it took around 1 minute.
  11. Once you are verified, you can go back to the Theme Header and remove the link. You are already verified, you don’t need it anymore.
