php5-imap on Ubuntu 14.04 is not enabled

@Friendica Support Please add this to the git wiki as it differs from normal module install. To install the imap module on Friendica these steps required are:

sudo apt-get install php5-imap
sudo php5enmod imap

sudo service apache2 restart

"Community" tab never seems to update, is it possible to disable or just do away with it?

For some reason the community tab on my Friendica instance does not update. It has been frozen in time as per the screenshot for many months now.

Even when it does work I never use it. Is it possible to disable the tab or just do away with it entirely?

[Closed] [Fixed] Corrupt Message?

About 48 hours ago, suddenly my "Everybody" and "friends" streams present "Internal Server Error" messages. I have other streams that I can view fine. I thought maybe it might be something from the @Friendica Support forum, but when I moved that contact to a newly-created stream, it shows up fine.

Other changes for 5.6 are that Innodb cannot be disabled.
For a MyISAM only databases with 5.6 use
innodb_buffer_pool_size = 5M
This keeps innodb memory to a minimum, values under 5M still give 5M
Also full text search is possible with InnoDB.

Possibly a similar procedure I had to use when using a 5.6 database with 5.5.
Use mysqldump to get a dump of the database with mariadb 10.10 (5.6 in my case),
then with Percona 5.6 recreate the database with the file from the mysql dump (5.5 in my case). Keep an extra backup of the database.

If there is an API, there is a way :) Question always is, in which way it should work. Posting pictures to a default album will be possible, I guess.

If there is a possibility in flickr to follow some users, it should be able to get new picture, when they are published. Everything else depends upon the API.

Facebook: Postings to private groups could be synced accidentally

@Friendica Support @Friendica Developers I just posted a video to a private facebook group (I used the facebook web page). Even though the posting was private (according to the settings of facebook) the mirroring function of friendica had distributed it around the world ...

DNSBL something for friendica?

@Friendica Support Just sharing some code while testing the bb-code. This little gadget will look for attacks on your webside and send anyone suspicious to the blacklist where he is listed. You will be needing php_net_dnsbl and dependencies for this installed. It leaves a nice clickable log to check whoes been refused by setting $filename through the function you put this in. Anyone up for adding dnsbl to Friendica?

function testbl($filename){
if(!$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']) return;
$testip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];

require_once '/usr/share/php/Net/DNSBL.php';
$dnsbl = new Net_DNSBL();

working with tags.

Looking at profiles (like my own), I see things such as "Tags" in which I, well, tend to use hashtags, but it seems they're not "clickable" links so don't allow for any sort of navigation. Is this intended? Copy/posting any of the hashtags (including the #) to the search box works however, so having the hashtags mere hyperlinks to toggle a search for this tag would be nice to have.

Beiträge verschwinden

Seid gestern habe ich ein merkwürdiges Phänomen auf meinem Friendica Knoten. Beiträge, die mit Berechtigungen für bestimmte Gruppen versehen sind, bleiben eine zeitlang auf meinem Knoten sichtbar.

Dann plötzlich sind sie nicht mehr da.

Schaue ich in die Tabelle item, finde ich sie dort aber noch. Leute, die den Berechtigungsgruppen angehören, können den Beitrag zum Originallink noch aufrufen. Demnach dürfte der Beitrag ja nicht gelöscht sein.

Jemand ein ähnliches Problem?

Ein weiterer Nachtrag.

Ich hatte mehrere Profile angelegt und diesen unterschiedliche Bilder zugeordnet. Dabei hat es bei der Erstellung schon Probleme gegeben. Habe bis auf das Standard Profil, alle gelöscht.

Weiterhin habe ich alle Beiträge, älter als 30 Tage löschen lassen.

Das war am Samstag. Heute ein paar Beiträge geschrieben und auch verschiedenen Berechtigungsstufen zugeordnet. Anschließend die poller.php laufen lassen.

Bis jetzt sind alle Beiträge noch zu sehen. Bevor nun Michael oder jemand anderes aktiv wird, würde ich sagen, dass ich das erst mal weiter beobachte. Sollten die Probleme nicht verschwunden sein, melde ich mich hier wieder.

Da stimme ich Dir voll und ganz zu. Ich habe so den Verdacht, dass die Aktion mit den unterschiedlichen Profilfotos irgendwie was verwurstelt hat. Das würde auch erklären, warum Du beim Aufruf des Beitrages das Standard Profilfoto gesehen hast.

Es ist zwar möglich, für jedes Profil ein eigenes Foto zu nutzen, nur ist das nicht so ganz einfach, wie das in der Anleitung steht. Egal, ich werde das mal weiter beobachten und schauen was passiert. Oder auch nicht.

Line 8 is: function ($match) use ($plaintext){

Irgendwie ist seit dem letzten Update des ~friendica ~friendica-Systems das Theme "frost-mobile" kaputt. :-(
In einen Post wird in diesem Theme nach einer gewissen Anzahl Zeichen der Text nicht mehr weiter angezeigt:

Eigentlich sollte es so aussehen:

Außerdem vermisse ich in "frost-mobile", in der unteren Iconzeile, das Icon für "Link zum Originalbeitrag".

Wer war das ??? ;-)

P.S. mein Versionsstand: 3.3rc - 1173 ; Frost--mobile version - Version 0.3

P.P.S. Das Plugin "show-more" sollte damit nix zu tun haben, ich habe es (wie im zweiten Bild zu sehen) auf 1.000 Zeichen stehen. In "frost-mobile" erfolgt der Stop schon nach 877 Zeichen.
