The linked picture shows how it looks in Lemmur, but looking at it via the web client doesn’t show the @sopuli.xyz association for either the user or the post itself. What’s going on here?

This is a bug in lemmur, it shouldn’t be showing posts from !technology@sopuli.xyz in the !technology@lemmy.ml community. Open up an issue in their repo if you would.

edit: if its this post, it also might be a naming issue, because that post is actually on !technology@lemmy.ml

Yep, that’s the post. OP appears to be registered @sopuli.xyz if you hover over their name on that post, and their profile here on @lemmy.ml indicates that they’re registered on @sopuli.xyz as well.

Also one of their communities, !suomi, is listed on @lemmy.ml, but appears as !suomi@sopuli.xyz.

It doesn’t look to me like a Lemmur issue, but obviously I’m no expert!

I don’t see the problem. People at sopuli.xyz are allowed to post to !technology@lemmy.ml. In fact I don’t see a !technology@sopuli.xyz community https://sopuli.xyz/search/q/technology/type/Communities/sort/TopAll/page/1.

Oh sure, I don’t mean I have any objection to their participation. I’m just trying to understand how Lemmy works, and I’m confused by the differing instance identifiers for this post, user, and community.

In fact I don’t see a !technology@sopuli.xyz community

Curiouser and curiouser! It does look like !suomi is on sopuli.xyz, though. The one on Lemmy was deleted.

This post seems to be originally from the sopuli instance: https://sopuli.xyz/post/3203, so lemmur displays the origin instance host. Isn’t that the expected behavior?

The community that post is to is actually !technology@lemmy.ml .

The issue here is that the user is in sopuli, so Lemmur assumes “oh, they must be posting on a sopuli instance too” which is not the case. This is a bug with Lemmur

People from any instance can perfectly post on communities from another instance as long as they allow federation with each other, that part’s perfectly normal and a sign that things are working fine

Actually no, we take the origin host of the post and display that. I think we misunderstood what origin host in the API actually indicates, I will have to investigate. This misunderstanding might manifest itself in more places

Ohhh, I see. Thanks for the correction!
