How to link to a Fedora Chat matrix room

This isn’t a policy, it’s just documenting something.

If you are in a room and want to send it to someone and pick “Copy Link” from the invite menu, you will get a link like this:

If you follow that link, you’ll be invited to join with various clients, but none of them are the web client. But, if you add ?web-instance[] to the end, et voilà.

I have an issue in with the Element Web project to make these links be the default (Allow "copy room link" to get a URL from our web client to point people _back_ to our own client · Issue #19082 · vector-im/element-web · GitHub), but I don’t think that’ll happen soon. So in the meantime, make sure to add the magic incantation when sharing links (and especially when documenting them).


Thanks for the info!

Out of curiosity, is this instance permanent and viable? I’d like to switch to it.

I just signed up and it’s working very well so far.

Yes, it’s permanent. It’s basically a soft-launch at this point (see Official launch checklist).
