I have been following Diaspora for years, even setup a pod 7 or 8 years ago just to try it out, and took it down for various reasons. Well in the past few days Ive decided to commit to running a pod again, and I set one back up.
I am trying to understand how propagation of public posts work, and if my pod is misconfigured in some way, as I do not see any at all. I did find the relay config within the diaspora.yaml, and enabled both inbound and outbound, but I do not know if there’s more I have to do, or if perhaps my instance is not functioning properly, as I still do not see anything other than posts from folks I’ve followed.
I expect that in the “public activity” page, I should see… well… public activity from outside of my pod. I do not (again, other than public posts from people follow, or my own public posts).
What can I do to test relay messages? how can I tell if my pod is functioning properly?
