I have gone ahead and added

federation: {
    # whether to enable activitypub federation. 
    enabled: true
    tls_enabled: true
    # Allows and blocks are described here:
}

to my site configuration file, however I am not able to view any of the other instances.

Many thanks

What you need to do is fetch objects from another instance manually. You do this by searching the url of a community, post or user.

I tried doing as you suggested but it seems that objects don’t sync on my instance. I subscribed to the community !lemmy_support@lemmy.ml but it shows up as empty on my instance

So i checked and it seems like federation only works for new posts and comments. It doesn’t seem to sync with any of the old posts and comments before I set up federation. Is there a way to get all the old comments and posts to sync?

Also is there a way to remove the blinking cursor that it appears on various parts of the page?

In your lemmy.hjson file, you’ll need to add instances to your allow list by domain name:

# list of instances with which federation is allowed
# allowed_instances: ["instance1.tld","instance2.tld"]
# instances which we never federate anything with (but previously federated objects are unaffected)
# blocked_instances: []

If you want, tell me your instance and I’ll add you to my allow list (midwest.social)

Little confused. I thought if we didn’t have an allowed list then it would be open federation https://lemmy.ml/post/42833

I tied doing as you suggested and can only see this.
