Support for the Social Profile Exchange Protocol (SPXP)

This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Support for the Social Profile Exchange Protocol (SPXP)


The Social Profile Exchange Protocol (SPXP) defines how independent clients and servers can exchange information about social profiles,
focusing on privacy, security and individual sovereignty.
It aims to create a social media network consisting of independent actors rather than being controlled by a single entity.

This plugin makes your wordpress instance available via this protocol so that people can start following your blog posts with
any SPXP client of their liking, like the Hey Folks app.

You can set the profile picture and a longer “About” text in the settings and tweak how posts on our Blog are presented via SPXP.

This plugin is not yet available for multisite installations.

  • Settings of your SPXP profile


As usual: Copy the /hfa-spxp folder to /wp-content/plugins of your wordpress instance, activate the plugin and then adjust it
to your liking on the SPXP settings page.

Once activated, it exposes your blog via SPXP under the /spxp endpoint. If your blog lives at https://example.com/myblog, then
your SPXP profile URI would be https://example.com/myblog/spxp.
