following a Diaspora account

I'm pretty new to Friendica, and I'm trying things out to see how things work. I tried following diaspora HQ (https://joindiaspora.com/u/diasporahq), to see how interacting with Diaspora works, by entering diasporahq@joindiaspora.com into the "Add new contact" box. However, none of their posts are showing up in my Network tab, and when I edit the contact, it says: "You are sharing with diaspora* HQ", which is not what I want to do. Am I doing something wrong?

The poller does nothing with diaspora. I'm totally unsure where the problem could be.

Thanks for trying to help anyways, Michael. I've got your diaspora account added, so we'll see if it picks up on your next post.

Error in oauth workflow

@Friendica Developers @Friendica Support

Hi,

when requesting a request token from a friendica server by an application the request token which is returned to the application is written into the database table "tokens" with a wrong uid (uid=0).

So when the authorization process via oauth is interrupted after the request token has been obtained by an application the request token in the database cannot be deleted by the user (via oauth/settings).

When the application again tries to authorize via oauth and again interupts the process another request token is written into the database also with uid=0. Then in oauth/settings the application is visible two times but the user still is not able to remove the authorization of that programm.

When the application tries to authorize a third time and know everything is fine the database table contains one entry for a valid access token wi... show more

Warum werden Beiträge hier eigentlich nach einer gewissen Zeit gelöscht? Einige der Probleme und Fragen die ich mit/zu meiner Friendica Instanz hatte, hätte ich vermutlich selbst lösen können wenn der entsprechende Google Link nicht ins Leere geführt hätte...

Weil die Datenbank ansonsten zu groß werden würde und der Dienst nicht angeboten werden könnte. Darum werden alte Beiträge nach einiger Zeit gelöscht.

Hi, a user from my instance wanted to connect to somebody from another server. The connection succeeded, however she couldn't access the other contacs' status. Posts were not private, I double-checked. They tried to delete each other mutually and readd, however this doesn't work out: She doesn't get a request confirmation and he doesn't get request. Is there a way to "repair" the DB to reset their connection? Thanks a lot!

Right, thanks! I'm learning by doing, so it'll take me a while to find my way around. I found the request and deleted it and I'll ask the admin of the other site to do the same. Let's see if it works.

Begrüßungsmail nach der Anmeldung

Ich habe heute festgestellt, dass nach einer Anmeldung eines neuen Nutzers am Friendica-Server die Begrüßungsmail teilweise in Deutsch, teilweise in Englisch ist. Das ist doof.

Wo klemmt es ? Die Transifex-Übersetzung zeigt für Deutsch eigentlich 100 % an. Wo ist die Macke ? Ist das ein Fall für die Github-Issues ?
Dann bitte mal einstellen; ich habe dort keine Anmeldung.
Danke.

Wenn vor dem String ein t('steht, dann ist das die Vorbereitung zur die Übersetzung. Also der spezielle Ort war es nicht, die Zeile drüber ist ja mit dem Aufruf der entsprechenden Funktion versehen.

Der Text ist (quasi) idetisch zwei mal vorhanden. Einmal in mod/admin.php und einmal in include/users.php und jedes mal fürs Übersetzten markiert. Mein PHP ist zielich schlecht, aber evt. ist das Problem, dass in mod/register.php, wo die Nachricht beim Selbstregistrieren erstellt wird, mod/users.php eingebunden wird, bevor die Sprache gesetzt wird?

Hi @Friendica Support ,
I have two questions related to contacts:

1. When getting a contact request from diaspora, there is an option "Approve as:" which can be set to "Friend" or "Sharer". What is this for?

2. On the contact-edit page, there is an option named "Fetch further information for feeds". What are this further informations?

Möglich ist vieles, ich kenne mich mit den Interna von Diaspora im Handling von self-signed Certs nicht aus. Innerhalb von FF wird selbst verschlüsselt, da braucht es kein TLS/SSL als dann die Kommunikation mit D* dazu kam hieß es dann.

"Damit das funktioniert braucht es ein gültiges Zertifikat was ohne Probleme im Browser funktioniert."

Wobei es anscheinend in den Configs irgendwas zu geben scheint (meine Vermutung) wie drastisch durchgegriffen wird, wenn ein Cert nicht reibungslos funktioniert, weil self-signed oder abgelaufen, oder beides, oder auf den falschen Namen ...

Also an der Stelle bin ich Überfragt. Wenn ich mit curl die Daten abfrage muss ich jedenfalls den Parameter setzen, dass es die nicht-validierung weil self-signed irnoriert.

I edited (or created?) a file "home.html" in the document root folder. You can see the result for visitors here: https://pink.pilot.io/ . What is in home.html is everything before the "Impressum" part.

"is now friends with ..." - helpful or annoying?

@Friendica Support @Friendica Developers @UX Watchdogs If you don't hide your friends list then everytime you connect a new contact, there is a message "blah is now friends with blubb".

I, personally, find this real annoying. People from Diaspora (where it is transmitted as well) are often annoyed as well.

Question is: Should we deactivate that? I do not want to make just another option for that. This only confuses the users.

Since some time the federation with Diaspora isn't working.
Any hint on this problem in this log info?

Mixed Encryption

I just installed a cacert-certificate on my friendica server, which works fine, however, as soon as external resources are loaded, browsers throw a "mixed encryption" error, e.g. on my "Network"-page. But not on my "community" page, as internally the "Force SSL"-option rules.

Firefox' "HTTP Nowhere"-Plugin indicates it's mostly icons from other friendica servers. It doesn't bother me much, but I'd like to optimize my friendica instance to be less scary also for less tech-savvy users.

I'm a little puzzled too that the image uri's in the rendered code point to proxied files on my own server rather than remote sources. Where does the browser detect mixed encryption then?

Does anyone have an idea to circumvent this? Any input very much appreciated!
