I have tried to organize, summarize and describe the friendica contact request and confirmation process with some kind of visualization.

For some reason feeds are not pulled, I tried to set them to pull frequently and to hourly, both seems to not do the job. For example @earthquake should get the feed frequently, but somehow won't. What do I need to look for in the log?

Curious

@Friendica Support
I don't know if it is me, but my Friendica instance has been acting more strangely than usual lately. I've been using the frio theme, so I don't know if it is related to that or a "core" issue.

My posts/replies haven't been posting, or at least they post slowly. I accidentally double replied to a post earlier this morning. Most times when posting the comment box or floating widget (depending or whether or not I am replying or composing) just sits there after clicking share and I notice in the background that the page updates, or I get a notification. When I refresh the page, then all looks normal.

On the visual side of things, my avatar icon is the default "head and shoulders" in the message threads but appears just fine on my profile as well as the upper right settings area.

I've been on the develop branch for some time and also recently, updated and ran the db update script. Anyone else having abnormal behavior lately?

Ich gehe mal so weit zu sagen, dass die Umstellung auf InnoDB meinen Server deutlich langsamer gemacht hat. Später mal schauen was genau das Problem ist, aber Datenbankabfragen dauern jetzt bis zu 4 Sekunden, vorher war das immer 0,x Sekunden.

Hm, das php-error_log ist auf Systemlog, da ist nichts zu sehen. Nachdem ich jetzt den Twitter-Import wieder aktiviert hab, hat er meine noch ausstehenden Beiträge mit importiert. Und alles läuft wieder normal. Ich werd das mal beobachten und gucken, ob das Phänomen bei meinen Twitterbeiträgen wieder auftaucht.

Die einzigen spannenden Logeinträge sind:

If I click on them they are mostly empty, there is no information.

Some annoyances with Frio

@Friendica Theme Developers @Friendica Support
Starting with one of today's commits to develop the JOT menu of Frio's modal (?) window doesn't work anymore. It it nearly impossible to set permissions (the link is not there, but touching around sometimes triggers the selection window). Also, uploading and inserting of pictures isn't possible anymore.

Another issue exists since the first days of Frio. After coming back from a dialogue like permission settings or adding a link I select TEXT in the JOT menu. Then I have to click or tap into the text field. At this very moment all content in the field vanishes and I must start typing everything from scratch.

A third, small one is the word "Teilen" always stays in the text field. I think it should go away automatically.

Thanks for the great theme. I hope I can help to make it even better. :-)

I would absolutely love to help with development but unfortunately I can't. Besides some basic bash scripting skills I'm an absolute noob when it comes to programming. :-) Some time ago I bought a book about HTML, CSS and PHP and I survived ;-) some web based tutorials about "programming". But I don't think that was helping much.
On the other hand I'm running a server on develop branch an I do a lot of testing. If I find a bug or bad usability I'm happy to report this and to open an Github issue.

we need to care not just implementing things but implement it in a good way

Yes, I'm completely on your side here. :-)

Wollte nur zum Ausdruck bringen, dass wir für vieles gute Konzepte brauchen und das in vielen Bereichen. Das mit dem Browser ist halt ein gutes Beispiel. Wie schaffen wir es das auf Smartphones das Ding immer noch gut aussieht und gut bedienbar ist. So habe ich es erstmal rausgelassen, weil ich einfach noch keine gute Idee hab. Und irgendwie fällt mir das bei so vielen Sachen auf. Teilweise bediene ich mich bei fremden Projekten um mir Inspiration zu holen, aber zu manchen Sachen fällt mir nichts gutes ein :-/

Problem mit Berechtigungen für Beiträge

Hallo @Friendica Support
ich habe einen Benutzer auf Libranet, der Probleme mit dem Setzen der Berechtigungen für Beiträge hat. Das Auswahlfenster für seine Kontakte ist leer. Er hat schon verschiedene Themes und verschiedene Browser probiert. Cache geleert hat er auch. Hilft alles nicht.

Es muss mit seinem Benutzer oder seinen Kontakten zu tun haben, weil ich und andere Nutzer auf meinem Server das Problem nicht haben.

Gerade habe ich mir die Liste der Nutzer im Admin Panel angesehen. Er hat zwei Accounts. Den zweiten hat er wegen des Problems vor 2 Wochen angelegt. Dabei hat er die gleiche E-Mail Adresse verwendet, wie bei seinem ersten Account. Wieso geht das überhaupt? Mehrfachregistrierung habe ich deaktiviert. Aber das nur am Rande.

Beim neuen Benutzerkonto lief zwei Wochen lang alles gut. Nun hat er das Problem mit dem Berechtigungsfenster auch beim neuen Benutzer.

Danke! Ich hab es! Es ist JappixMini. Habe es bei meinem Testuser aktiviert. Danach war das Schloss vom ACL Dialog plötzlich geschlossen und die Kontakte wurden nicht mehr geladen.
JappixMini wieder ausgeschaltet (User-Einstellungen) und schon funktioniert der ACL Dialog wieder.
Bei der Gelegenheit sind mir auch Fehler bezüglich JappixMini in der Webkonsole von Firefox aufgefallen.

Ich hatte die Einstellung "nicht dem Benutzer-Interface hinzufügen" aktiv, daher hat es bei mir funktioniert. Es reicht also, wenn das Widget nicht geladen wird.
PS: übrigens scheint Jappix Mini ohnehin kaputt zu sein oder es ist nicht mehr kompatible mit dem aktuellen develop code. Es wird nämlich nicht geladen, auch wenn man das so einstellt.

Announcement: cal addon has been moved to core

@Friendica Support
In one of the last commits in the develop branch I implemented an public calendar for the profile page. This calendar is available under cal/NICKNAME and is visible if you visit a foreign profile page.

The public calendar containing all personal events of the profile owner while respecting all permissions of the event (groups, deny and so on).

I think this is a big step forward to use friendica for event announcements (e.g. if the profile owner is a club or an organisation).

After merging the code for the public calendar I noticed that there was a conflict with the cal Addon which uses the same path. (the cal Addon allows you to export your events). So I have moved the code of the cal Addon to core and have marked the call addon as unsupported.
If you are on latest git develop you can enable the export function for the puplic calendar in you personal settings.

Note for friendica admins:
If you are on latest git develop please go to your admin settings and disable the cal addon. Afterwards update your addon directory to the latest git friendica-addons.

Das sollte doch funktionieren oder? Gibt es da was spezielles zu beachten?
Hintergrund: Die HW-Auslastung eines Servers soll dadurch spürbar entlastet werden.

Ich denke, dass man sich wegen Friendica keine Sorgen um die Performance machen muss. Friendica ist sehr Ressourcen schonend. Einzig die Datenbank wächst und beansprucht auch ordentlich RAM.
Auf meinem Server mit 76 Benutzen (davon ca. 20 aktiv) dümpelt die Systemlast um die 10-20% herum. Der Apache langweilt sich eher. Und das obwohl hier neben Friendica noch GNUsocial, ownCloud, Nextcloud, XMPP (Jabber) und der Mailserver laufen.

On "develop" branch? Be patient when updating it

@Friendica Support In the develop branch we just added two more fields in the item table. This is a preparation for a better handling of relocations and changing avatar pictures.

Since the item table can be really huge, this update can take some time (on my machine it took more than one hour). In that time your system will not work correctly and incoming messages could fail.

If you are on a small server this shouldn't be any problem. But when you are using friendica on a larger server then it could be helpful to do the update in this way:


  • Stop the poller.php cronjob
  • Shutdown your web server
  • Update from git
  • call php include/dbstructure.php update from the command line
  • start your web server
  • start the poller.php cronjob

I implemented a public calendar for the profile page with https://github.com/friendica/friendica/pull/2623

There is a issue which I haven't recognized before committing. There exists a addon by @Tobias with the name "cal" for exporting calendars. Now there is a module registration conflict if this addon is enabled.

The solution is to rename one of the modules. I would prefer to rename the addon because hubzilla uses also cal for the public calendar. So i would suggest to rename the addon to something like cal_exp.

What do you think. Suggestions, Input?

I don't want to obfuscate the @, I just want our "add contact" feed to recognize this obfuscated @ from Hubzilla. I usually copy those addresses from Diaspora/Hubzilla profiles and paste them to add a new contact. If copy and paste is no problem, then don't mind what I wrote above.

Hidden contacts issue

Hello @Friendica Support
It's me again. :-) I discovered a strange behavior of contacts. Some of my contacts were hidden all of a sudden. I have repaired this by unchecking the hide checkbox of each contact. Today I took a look at the hidden contacts page and there are some hidden contacts again. Why is this happening? Is this a bug or an error on my side? Any idea?
