Hubzilla channels do not use ActivityPub by default. To federate with other applications in the pasture, a manual configuration step is needed to enable it. From the “hamburger” menu at the top right, choose “Apps”. Click on “Available Apps” at the left and “ActivityPub Protocol” will appear at the top of the list. Choose “Install” to enable it for this channel.
