User reviews
I was about to give 2/5 because I thought this addon no longer worked however, I was redirecting to and putting in different instances to redirect too, I realise that it is Elk that seem to have changed something that has killed the addon. This addon can still redirect any account to however, you get /authorize_interaction?uri= when redirecting from posts now.
