Not able to confirm/add remote profiles

@Friendica Support

Hi everyone, I've just set up a Friendica instance and one of my friends is having trouble adding remote contacts.

Specifically, one of the ones he is not able to add is I, however, have added it successfully. I wondered if it was an issue with my account being an admin account, but that's not the case, as I set up a new user and could add rms.

Before my friend started adding contacts, he changed his account name (the "full name" not the nickname), and we thought that may have contributed to the problem, but I did the same on the test account and before and after I was still able to add rms.

We've gone over our privacy settings, and they are both the same:


However, still no luck. The message he's getting is "Could not confirm remote profile address." Google hasn't enlightened me.

Is there something we can look at? Some configs I can change directly in the mysql database? Or is it safe for him to export his account and re-create a new one?

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Thanks Michael, I didn't ask whether he added to /contacts or whether he visited the other site. But we can wait until the new code release. Appreciate the help.

When trying to add rms from /contacts I get the following error message.

"The profile address specified does not provide adequate information.
No compatible communication protocols or feeds were discovered.
An author or name was not found."

I'd like to ask you ask you something : I've installed a local instance to try out some stuff.
I installed it on a seprate machine in my LAN and I put some restrictions with iptables, because I don't provide any public services. So on that little server I usally block everything (input, output, forward) and later add some chains to allow a few things in LAN only.
Then I realised, that I couldn't register on friendica - when I allow the output, I can.
Then I tried it with allowance for the ports 80 and 53 tcp and udp, but registration still wasn't possible, so I just allowed output again generally to register an account and put back the restrictions into my ruleset.
The message was, that the mail-adress is not valid.
I have to say, I'm not widely read in networking stuff - I'm just interested :-)
Could you please tell me which port and protocol is needed there to make a registration possible ?

Oh ok - thank you very much :-)
Yesterday I've been without internet for a couple of hours.
I've seen your comment, but a friend of mine has been in here to learn together some computer stuff and later, when I wanted to answer, there was no connection to the www.
I already thought, that perhaps because of the damn high temperatures the DSL-router became too hot and changed it with another one, but there might have been a damage elsewhere - somewhen around midnight I tried it the last time - I'm glad it works again :-)

Users cleanup

@Friendica Support

Hello, dear friendicans! :-)

I have a public instance at and want to cleanup spammy users (who haven't logged in for more than year, or never try to do that). I have deleted them from admin panel, but they're still there, in deletion queue, for about a week. Will they vaporize, or I should launch some script for that?

Use Buffer, not FBPost

@Friendica Developers @Friendica Support As most of you might know, Facebook had changed some rules, so that the FBSync addon isn't usable anymore and the FBPost addon can only be used if Facebook grants a permission at the end of a lengthy process that every single Friendica admin has to go through.

If you (or your users) only want to post stuff to Facebook (or Google+ Pages or LinkedIn) then you should install the buffer addon. It uses the third party tool "Buffer" for that.

Mirroring of posts (importing your posts from a foreign network and posting it via Friendica) isn't possible with that.

Hallo Leute, heute hatte ich die Zeit und Nerven um die fällige Erneuerung meines https-Zertifikats vorzunehmen. Ich habe ein StartSSL-Zertifikat der kostenlosen Sorte und das gilt jeweils nur 1 Jahr. Nun habt ihr sicher alle die Berichte über POODLE und BEAST gelesen - mein Server sollte wieder gute Noten bekommen und sicher sein.

1. Problem war das "Intermediate certificate" vom Aussteller. Inzwischen hat StartSSL angefangen die SHA1withRSA Zwischenzertifikate gegen SHA256withRSA auszutauschen. Sie sind aber noch nicht durch. Das kann ich nicht beeinflussen - aber das SSL Lab meckert noch ein bisschen.

2. Problem: ich verwende noch Debian Wheezy und kann nicht gleich upgraden. Der Apache ist Version 2.2.22-13+deb7u4 und OpenSSL ist Version 1.0.1e-2+deb7u17.

OStatus: Much better - still some room for improvements

@Friendica Developers @Friendica Support I just did another pull request. The protocol implementation now supports bookmarks, questions and events. The behaviour with repeated posts should now be stable.

The next should now be the support of OStatus groups. Additionally I would like to check whether it is possible to subscribe to conversation feeds. This really would be a milestone.

By now I guess I will stop at the development, so that we can do a release with a stable code soon.

Dear all,
my contact entry of contact table database intermittently changed by some mechanism that I'm not familiar with. Consequently some of the contact user entry have false nickname and false profile picture causing double entry in contact list. The only way to confirm the authenticity of the contact is by clicking it and see which profile where it get redirected to.

My question is which mechanism or background process that modifies the contact list?

best regards,

Huge database

@Friendica Support

Just have question, till now my posts on Friendica will never expire, therefor the posts will be stored until I delete dem manually or until I kill my Friendica installation.

Now I saw within a year of use my Database went to about 1.4 GB, actually wanted to do a manual backup and figured it loads very long and that for two users and some RSS. Did you ever check the Database size?

So my question, how do you handle this? Not posting many pictures can help or setting an expiration date might help. What is you practice?

It's a problem for the root mysql user and you have a password stored in /root/.my.cnf for the server which you are restoring to. The passwords are different until changed.
Also for Debian, you need to backup and restore /etc/mysql/debian.cnf as the debian-sys-maint passwords will be different if restoring to another server.

you can really call global defined functions from templates.
In friendica-project I'm calling 't()', 'relative_date()' and 'substr' from template.
I didn't try, but I think you can do {{if local_user()}}<h1>Welcome back!</h1>{{/if}}

So because of the Diaspora problem when you moved your friendica account I thought I would create a new profile, which was not possible because I get the message "dieser Spitzname ist schon vorhanden" (this nickname is already in use) which is not true. Not sure if it was ever used, but there is no user that has the same nickname on my server. The new users nickname I wanted to set to 'utzer', there is no user called here. So what can I do to get that working? Creating a user called 'test' works fine.

Comments which are relayed to community forums will be relayed back to the original post creator. Mentioning the forum with an @-tag in a comment does not relay the message, as distribution is controlled entirely by the original post creator.

So, what is meant?
And what is happening technically?:
I'm a member of a forum and write a post to it. The forum takes its addressbook and multiplies my post to all of its contacts. Or does the forum hands out its addressbook to me 'cause it's written that the

Reworked OStatus import

@Friendica Developers @Friendica Support This weekend I spent some time on the OStatus import. There were several issues with duplicates and some problems with reshared items.

Since the whole code of the "consume_feed" function seems maintainable to me, I wrote a completely new function that replaces this function - but only for the OStatus protocol. I will see if I will write a dedicated function for RSS/Atom feeds as well, so that we will have a dedicated function for every protocol. This should help making the code more understandable.

In the future I will also try to change all XML parsing to the regular XML-DOM functions in PHP. They are powerful enough and better understandable than "simplepie" I think.

There is one issue where I haven't found a solution for. When two (or more) persons from Friendica are commenting on a OStatus message then they won't see each other directly. Only after another person from OStatus had done another posting, the thread completion will fetch posts from Friendica users as well.

OStatus replies should now arrive at all contacts

@Friendica Developers @Friendica Support I just did a pull request. This improves the communication with OStatus contacts a lot. Now a reply should always arrive at all OStatus contacts. It can even work with replies to unknown contacts when they are sharing the same server with known contacts.

The next step will be an improvement to the export. (I want to add all fields that are supported by the protocol)

Then I will have a look at the import. There are several bad things in the code (I did several of them). So I want to rewrite many parts of it.

Maybe I should add an option the statusnet connector to add every connector contact natively.
Michael Vogel 1 month ago (2015-05-30 23:38:16)
There is one problem at the moment. If several people from Friendica are discussing on the same thread they will only see each other posts if the thread completion was activated.

This is due to the fact that Friendica doesn't speak subhub with each other. I have to see if the salmon protocol could help or if I could make a change to our own protocol.

Changing the OStatus import

@Friendica Developers @Friendica Support The last days I worked at the OStatus and Diaspora communication. I created a pull request for this:

There are still several issues for the OStatus import (, GNU Social). I'm thinking about a radical new way to import OStatus messages.

By now every message is imported. Without the thread completion you will often get replies without the original post. With activated completion you will get the whole thread but the danger is that you will be flooded with messages that you don't want to get - and there is a protocol problem that you can't reply to these posts by now (maybe fixable)

I'm now thinking about a new import. This one would not directly import the received messages but would directly start a function like the... show more

Hi, I can upload .webm as attachment up to aprox. 10 MB.
Is there a restriction somehow some where to modify this?

There are 3 upload limits, in Friendica, in php and in the web server

#Friendica by default has no upload limits in the settings. So if that was not changed during the setup process, than the upload limitation factor is most likely just the php.ini configuration, which by default is limited to only a pettily 2MBs.

User waiting for permanent deletion

@Friendica Support

Just deleted a user created in the admin panel. The user wasn't activated. I tried to add the user again (correct email) but got message that same user name can't be used again on this server. The user is displayed at the bottom in the "User waiting for permanent deletion" section.

Is this a temporary stage that changes later on?

Additionally the user name is blocked permanently to avoid identity theft.

Friendica FYI - That user I deleted, no longer shows up in the admin panel. Looks like it's a one week grace period!

Contact Likes

Might be a confusing title/subject. I've noticed of late that posts to the "wall" of my contacts don't always all show up.

The scenario:
I post to a contact's wall by visiting their profile directly and sharing. When I return to my site network tab, relatively quickly, if not immediately, that post shows up. Several hours later, someone (or several) who is connected with my contact (whom I posted to) then likes my post. However, from my Network tab the like is not shown.

After some time, one of the likes may show up, but not all. After noticing this the first time I verified that this also happens with other peoples posts as well. Someone I do not know, posts to a mutual contact, and I can see that post, but only some of the likes are shown.

The Question:
Is this something that just happens as a result of the system (federated/de-centralized)? Or, is there something I have not set up properly or perhaps a default setting that I have not yet modified?

Ah okay. That explains, why I haven't found you from my Diaspora account :)

Is there a reason not to use it?

Hallo und guten Morgen, #newhere mit diesem Profil :)

Just saying, can't find the language selector in the vier theme.

Does friendica ask the visitors browser language?

The [?] field could be a good choice .. seriously. I switch between english spanisch and german all the time, even to understand some things better, and my browsers are all mixed up. Adding the good oll flag to that menu would be awes.. :)

If you run your own node, you can hak/mod the theme easily to include the selector. But ultimately it is the choice of the theme author to include it or not.
