Yes I had that problem some days ago with a Facebook link, a link to a picture in theater mode. Maybe there is a sign in the url that breaks the JS?

Not sure how to explain, when I tried to share a link it wouldn't populate the post.

Ok, so maybe there was a update to friendica and the cache was still using old java script, but I am no programmer so this is just my idea what could have happened.

... es wurde ja schon gefragt - also machen wir es offiziell: wollen wir uns in diesem Jahr Ende Juli/Anfang August wieder in Zwenkau am See treffen ?
Wann gehts nicht ? Am 13./14.8. - da ist Stadtfest.
Wir sollten die Terminierung auch nicht so lange schleifen lassen, da am 6.8. Schulanfang ist und ja einige ein Quartier brauchen. Camping wieder an der bekannten Ecke.

Auf alle Fälle freut sich Koch Meischi auch wieder auf euch. Er würde einigen gern "richtiges" Essen machen Bild/Foto

Ich würde dieses Mal, wenn befürwortet, auch etwas "Geländeerkundung" (aka Sightseeing Bild/Foto ) mit einplanen und organisieren. Wusstet ihr, dass Leipzig mehr schiffbare Kanäle hat als Venedig ?

Das Treffen in Zwenkau ist ja in erster Linie kein Programmierertreffen (das machen wir dann hoffentlich später in diesem Jahr in Berlin), sondern ein allgemeines "Socialising" und ein Austausch von Ideen, Anregungen, etc.

Would it be an option to give the mention links (@username) a css class "mention" or something like an other identifier.

Just tried to expand the hovercard to act on mentions, but with the present system I don't find any good solution.

BTW: Due to the cache system it will only work on newly arrived items - or you have to enabled this parameter in your .htconfig.php:

$a->config['system']['ignore_cache'] = true;

(But you should disabled it after the test)

Ich hab seit dem Umzug meiner Instanz auf eine andere Domain (bei gleichzeitiger SSL Aktivierung) das Problem, das Kommentare die ich auf meiner Netzwerkseite auf Beiträge anderer User abgebe, zwar auf meiner Netzwerkseite unter dem Beitrag erscheinen aber nicht mehr auf der Pinnwand des jeweiligen Users. Oder anders ausgedrückt, ich kann zwar kommentieren, das sieht dann aber außer mir niemand.

Geh ich direkt auf die Pinnwand eines anderen Users und kommentiere dort, erscheint der Kommentar dort auch und landet nach einer kurzen Zeit auch auf meiner Netzwerkseite. Irgendwo scheints also zu hängen....

So I had a problem last night with my Friendica webserver, it was a newly setup VM with LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP), the flavor for Linux was Arch and MySQL fork MariaDB. The problem that occurred was, that MariaDB had the binary log option turned on, which seems to be the standard configuration. MariaDB accumulated gigs of these bin logs, so much, that it used a bit more than 30GB. This completely filled up my virtual HDD, this caused the setup to just deliver a fault message instead of the actual rendered Friendica page.

So I just wanted to share this. For now I switched the bin log off, it seems I still have to manually delete the log files, at least they were still there. Anyone knows if I can just delete this files manually?

A few months ago I moved our friendica to another VM and since that day MariaDB logs in binlog. I don't really like it, but haven't had andy problems with it. Only the fact, that it's binary and not easily readable.

as far as I understand this is not necessary for standalone operation, it is some function that is needed if you sync another database. It just takes up to much space and I don't need that logs.

Frio theme

@UX Watchdogs @Friendica Theme Developer @Friendica Support @Friendica Developers
In the last week there was some discussion about my experimental frio theme.
I decided to summerize some of my thoughts (some have been already highlighted in a german talk) about this theme and friendica. Also with regard to possible committers.

Some perspectives/direction I have thought about in case of the frio theme (which also would affect friendica core).

1.) The private messages page
The list of all messages could be displayed at the left aside. Similar like it's done now when the user has opened a message (in the present... show more

I think this should work for remote users as well, not only for local users as in this function. So I suggest that we add the user theme (and style) to "noscrape" and as a hidden field in the profile. Then we could query it at that function.

At Transifex the core strings of Friendica have been updated to get translations for the 3.5 release up-to-date.

If you want to help the project and English is not your mother tongue, translations is a great chance to do so.

Hello @Friendica Support
is it just me or do we have a problem with adding feeds as contacts? I failed to add some WordPress feeds.

W3C feed validator says feed is valid. But Friendica doesn't recognise the network type. It tries to add this...

Profil URL:

...instead of a rss feed. :-( I tried this with three different feeds. Same problem.

Can someone confirm this behavior?

@Friendica Support I've got problems with dropping contacts. I doesn't matter if I drop only one contact, or if I select more to drop, the result in here is always the same:

the page starts to load, and it loads and it loads and after some minutes it is still loading. Then I tried to simply refresh the page, but it doesn't help. Closing the tab and open a new one also doesn't help.
Actually I wait about 5 minutes and if it's still loading I restart the webserver and the database server.

Has anybody else noticed such problems with dropping contacts?

yes we should it discuss it in Friendica I think and put the results to github. I merly meant tha status for include it in 3.5 or push it alog the way ;-)
36.2% english, 24% pidgin, 19.6% danish
Hmm it's nothing for 3.5. It is much work. I opened the issue but this doesn't mean that I'm the one who solves this. Like I said that would be a complete rewrite and I'm afraid to touch such a big part.
Maybe I will experiment with some stuff. But therefore I need much time and I don't know when this will be.
But before starting something like this, we should make a solvable plan how we want it ;-)

It's me or /parse_url/ (the mod used to get embed code from "web link" dialog in jot) is returning an empty page all the time?

How can I test this? Adding a link in the editor and watching the browser console?

Mmmh.. on a second check, the page I tried to add as web link was and it's full javascript..
The parse_url request is
which looks like returns an empty string.
I think isn't a good think to return an empty string. at least a [url]link[/url] tag should be returned always

Hallo @Friendica Support
ich habe da mal ein Bitte an die Devs...

[feature request] please make admin/users sortable · Issue #2516 · friendica/friendica

my friendica node has 67 registered users at the moment. Which means that the admin/users page became a little bit crowded. And I hope it gets even worse in the future. So, to have a better overview it would be nice to have a possibility to sort the list of users. I wish it would be possible to click on every heading and the table gets automagically sorted.

Danke! :-)

If I put two links into a post it will only handle one of the attachments correctly. Anyone has this problem?

The picture is from the preview, but it also looked like that in the post that I deleted again.

I stood outside the attachment element. That's something, which is clear, because text which I write there, does not belong to that delivered stuff.

Immer wieder lese ich von develop branch von Friendica, was es wieder neues gibt und dass dieser auch stabil läuft. Daher frage ich mich, lohnt sich ein Wechsel vom master auf den develop branch? Was bringt mir das?
Und falls ja, kann mir einer genau sagen, wie ich bei git den branch wechsle?

@Friendica Support I got a notification, that somebody from diaspora tagged me in a posting. I viewed the posting, but nowhere appeared my name - so I asked him, why I don't see the tag/mention and he told me, that he didn't tag me at all.

This is the second one - the first happened about two weeks ago in a posting from gnusocial.

Do you have an idea, what could be the reason?

So I come closer to moving my Friendica server, I did some test runs with transferring the 5.5GB database this afternoon. It seems to work fine. I used a nice pipe through SSH which really is great.
mysql destinationDB < <(ssh -C user@source.server "mysqldump sourceDB")<br />
more details:

I will probably play a bit with the consistency check of tables to see how that works and will then switch of the webserver on the source server, will change the DNS entry to the new server. On the new server I got to do some stuff to get letsencrypt running for the new domain.

Any other tips about things I should not miss?
