Users cleanup

@Friendica Support

Hello, dear friendicans! :-)

I have a public instance at social.feder8.ru 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?

Thanks!

I hope I'll stay alive, taking the fact that I did login _now_..

Although I really didn't visit friendica/diaspora for a while now, because of personal issues I don't want to share much.

Irgend was läuft offensichtlich aus dem Ruder bei der Übertragung, es scheint das die geraspora camo für Bilder das Problem verstärkt, auf joindispora ist der größte Teil des Themas lesbar.

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.

das tobiasd theme hab ich auch ausprobiert. funktioniert gut und was mir besonder gefiel, is der "bug" , dass man unten noch die Seitenleiste mit den Sammlungen hat.. sehr praktisch... dann muss ich nicht auf desktop version switchen..

@Debian @Deutschsprachige Nutzer @Friendica Support

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.
Damit habe ich das 1024-... show more

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.

Hello, I just tried Twidere again after a long time. I downloaded if with F-Droid, set it up with this description http://www.haukepauke.de/2014/04/use-friendica-twidere/

I had to set it to ignore SSL Faults, otherwise it won't connect at all, not sure why, maybe there is fault in Twidere or it is more restrict with SSL then Firefox or Chrome.

I can read posts, but when I try to send a "Test" it will crash and not submit the message. Did anyone have such a problem before?

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,
Joe

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}}


p.s. I'm thinking to add support to extract translatable strings from template to messages.po in core

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 https://social.yl.ms/profile/utzer here. So what can I do to get that working? Creating a user called 'test' works fine.

Dear people at @Friendica Support,

while I was working on the german translation of Forums.md I stuck at the last sentence:
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.

I don't understand this because I can't imagine that anyone would mention the same forum in a comment on a thread of the forum.
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
distribution is controlled entirely by the original post creator

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.

You might experience the effect that old posts are refetched (especially repeated items). This will happen only once.

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.

@Friendica Developers @Friendica Support Due to a programming (done by me) in the current developer branch you will experience huge performance problems when your database is big and you have much posts from networks other than Friendica and Diaspora.

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.

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.
