The step you should take care of is the fourth:
you have to provide your server url
Back to hubzilla, firts look if your server has this featured addon enabled. Otherwise this tutorial is useless.
Go to Settings -> Addon Settings -> Gnu Social post Settings
You’ll be asked for:
- OAuth Consumer Key
- OAuth Consumer Secret
- Base API Path (remember the trailling / ) https://yourgnusocial.instance/api/
all from first step, and
- Name: whatever you want.
You may create different connections for every Channel on your Hubzilla account, to target specific audiences.
At some point you’ll create a PIN code at gnusocial and enter it at hubzilla to verify the connection.
Plugin at work
Here the original message written/published on my default channel at hubzilla
