Happy to see this coming to show that WordPress is embracing not only Mastodon, but even more Indieweb services.

TL;DR: The "find me on" links are generated by javascript, at present. Thus, mastodon is unable to see them. Changing this is more complicated than simply adding rel=me to them.

Thanks for the info, but maybe we can start with the GitHub and Website URL?

I would love to submit a diff, if you can point me to the correct place in the SVN.

Oh, I just saw that the "Website URL" is a redirect URL, so that is also a bit tricky :(
