There is no way to mirror a #Twitter account in #Friendica for Twitter accounts that you don't own and if you just want to mirror the text and photo from that account?

I was on 2019.01-rc and just tried changing over to develop this morning. I did...

git checkout develop
git pull

and ended up with numerous merge conflicts - as a result, my site (mass-trespass.uk) is broken and I'm not really sure how to go about fixing it.

Any advice appreciate

#friendica
 
@Patrick Marchiodi, I have noticed that you are resharing some #mastodon bits from your #friendica instance. How is the inter #fediverse integrations these days? I have really wanted to look at that or #hubzilla but did not have an ideal experience; wrote about it.

https://robertfreemanday.keybase.pub/#2018-12-26%20Hubzilla%20and%20Zot%20options%20for%20Post%20G%2B

I guess that is why I have separate masto and #diaspora instances still.
 

A help for the wave of newcomers to come

!Friendica Support

Dear All,
once upon a time I've been a G+ refugee and have been so happy to be kindly welcomed in Friendica and the instance which I now reside.
Yet I spent much time in finding my way and realise after I landed on d* that Friendica was more interesting for me. So I though after @alysonsee (Fca) that putting together a sort of welcome text encompassing some basic jargon would be a good thing.
Here is the text I'm planning to provide to any newcomer I see. Let me know how to improve it keeping in mind the following criteria :
1. public is non geek lambda user
2. quick so that the user has the impression he receives the keys in an A4 page max
3. allow me to favorise #Friendica for its flexibility and connexion with the Free Network.
====================
Decentralised & Free Social Networks

For those who are #newhere from other social networks, here’s a bit of handy vocabulary to help you navigate this new social network universe:

- Protocol - An agreed format that enables software applications to communicate with (or “federate” with) each other. The two most heavily used protocols around here are Diaspora and ActivityPub. As an end user, you don’t have to care about the protocol you are using and you don’t ever see the “protocol” other than it enables or limits which users you can see.
Nevertheless, be aware that currently not all the platforms (see this word later) are fully compatible and limit you in the possibility of interactions.
Image/Photo

- Platform - The software application that implements a protocol(s) for federating. The Diaspora platform implements the eponymously named Diaspora protocol. Mastodon, for example, implements the ActivityPub protocol. Friendica implements both the Diaspora and the ActivityPub protocols.

- Server - pod - instance - node - The server(s) running a particular platform (software application). The variability in naming is due to the various origins of these platforms now working to intercommunicate.
For example, pluspora.com is one of the many pods running the Diaspora platform; mastodon.social is one of the many pods running the Mastodon platform; and libranet.de is one of the many pods running the Friendica platform.

- The Federation - The collective of servers running platforms that implement the Diaspora protocol. This includes all servers running Diaspora (the software application), Hubzilla, Friendica, or Socialhome. The users on *any* of these pods can connect to and interact with each other.

- The Fediverse - The collective of servers running platforms that implement the ActivityPub (and OStatus) protocols. This includes all servers running Mastodon, Pixelfed, Hubzilla, Friendica, Socialhome, or many, many others. The users on *any* of these servers can connect to and interact with each other.

- The Free Network - The collective of pods in The Federation and The Fediverse, combined.

Hope that helps and doesn’t make this seem more complicated than it actually is. The main difference from other social networks is that no single entity owns and runs a platform. On G+ or Facebook, you are locked into that platform/company to talk to other users. In the Free Network, one set of volunteers writes the software and puts it out there for free, and another set of volunteers downloads the software and runs it on their servers and invites us to have user accounts for free. (But you should definitely donate to help them with the costs, if you can.) If we, as users, decide we aren’t happy with our current experience, we can change platforms or pods and still keep all of our friends/connections. On Facebook, G+, Twitter, and the like, you are locked in; and if you want leave, you go cold turkey.

Glad you joined us here in the land of choice.

How to post to a forum?

!Friendica Support

I consulted the documentation and found that I have to use the "!" syntax to post to a forum. Is this correct?

I tried this but my previous post doesn't show up on https://forum.friendi.ca/profile/helpers - shouldn't it?

Actually, this is really not very intuitive in terms of #friendica #usability that you have to use a special syntax to post to a forum. Actually I'd expect a "new post" button on the forum page, as in more or less all other forums. Or did I miss something?

Thanks!

@d3j Mastodon contacts work fine with #Friendica, in fact most of my contacts are currently on #Mastodon.
 
How about a feature that allows us to flag not safe for work content and this flag is then federated to other servers?

I think that is something the #Fediverse needs, including #Friendica.

Hola @juan santiago

Te explico UN procedimiento para que puedas usar #friendica como espejo de tu cuenta #gnusocial y asi solo necesitas publicar en una sola cuenta.

Cada cuenta de gnusocial tiene una direccion rss asociada, que para friendica uede servir muy bien para este objetivo.

1. Te vas a la seccion de contactos y añades el rss del contacto de gnusocial

Image/Photo

2. Despues de darle al boton conectar, friendica te pedira confirmar

3. A continuacion esto te mostrara el resultado. Dependiendo del theme que este usando de friendica, en alguna parte te mostrara los siguientes links:
Estado
Posts and Comments
Perfil
Avanzado

Image/Photo

Asi entras en "avanzado" y te vas al final en donde te entregara 3 opciones en "mirror posting...":

Image/Photo

Y solo debes escoger o "mirror as forwarding..." o "mirror as my own..."

De esta manera, cada vez que escribas un mensaje en tu cuenta de gnusocial, en tu cuenta de friendica se replicara automaticamente.

Saludos
 
@Friendica Support Hi friends. I am a very beginner person trying to #install #friendica in a shared hosting. The only thing that I miss is that my friends from hubzilla or gnusocial cannot follow me. What would I do to solve this?

Thanks in advance.
 

Following via cURL?

With GNU Social there was an API endpoint that allows following users via #cURL. Is this possible with #Friendica as well?

Ich wünschte, die Mastodonten würden verstehen, dass Fediverse so viel mehr als nur Mastodon ist.

Vortrag über das Fediverse von Tobias


Image/Photo

Zum Ende der Sommerpause der Salonabende im Schätzchen, dem Café für Schöne Dinge & Salonkultur, war ich am 10. August eingeladen, einen Vortrag über das Fediverse und Friendica als Alternative zu den kommerziellen Plattformen wie Facebook, Instagram und nebenan.de zu halten.

Das Fediverse ist ein Netzwerk von unterschiedlichen Social Media Plattformen, die alle als Freie Software umgesetzt sind. Die Knoten des Netzwerks, also die einzelnen Installationen bzw. Dienste, kommunizieren dabei über offene Protokolle mit einander, ähnlich wie man es von E-Mails her kennt. Damit können die Nutzerïnnen der einzelnen Dienste im Fediverse, über die Grenzen der jeweiligen Dienste hinweg, mit allen anderen Nutzerïnnen interagieren

I get a message that the worker didn't run for a few day in /admin, I didn't change anything, the daemon is running (I restarted it too) and I started /bin/worker.php from cli. Still I get this message.

Any ideas?

To !Friendica Support

I have litle bits problems.

For example, here I have changed my avatar on #Friendica, but in other networks ( like #mastodon ) still appears the original.

A colleague from another network changed the pseudonym, but I still see the original.

¿What's going on? ¿Can it be an error of this network, that some details are not displayed correctly?
 
When I upload a picture in a reply to a post, maybe also in a new post, it is per default only shared with me.

How can I make it inherit the permission from the post I upload it to/for?

¿Problem Sync Friendica and ActivityPub?

#question !Friendica Support !Technical Support

Are there any known synchronization problems between #mastodon and #friendica ?

I can currently send messages to #activitypub, but I'm not receiving any from there.

I've done some tests to prove it and it just isn't working properly.

At first friendica's account appeared with a lock on mastodon's account, and then I changed that condition to friendica. Can that condition have any effect on the communication?

Thank for any answer
 
If you like you can help us (developers, including myself, at least partly) by writing a #bug ticket then you can speed-up the bug-fixing, plus kindly ask your node administrator (if you aren't him) to upgrade #Friendica quickly. Then it won't get lost because a single developer may have overseen it.

Friendica 2019.06 Released


Thanks everyone who contributed, be it directly by committing patches or new features, doing translations or reporting issues.





And now, we happily announce the availability of Friendica 2019.06. It contains many bug fixes, enhancements of existing functionality and some new features. The most noteworthy changes since the last release in March are:
  • Added native two-factor authentication
  • Added reshare counts
  • Added mascot to error pages (thanks to @lostinlight)
  • Moved Friendica private message and contact request to ActivityPub
You can find a complete overview of the changes in the CHANGELOG file.

How to Update

Updating from old Friendica versions


If you are updating from an older version than the 2018.09 release, please first update your Friendica instance to that version as there were several important changes in that version.

Please further note, that since Friendica 3.6 we use Composer for dependency management. If you are updating via git, you have to remember to update the dependencies as well.

Pre-Update Procedures


Ensure that the last backup of your Friendica installation was done recently. While testing, we did not encounter problems, but better safe than sorry.

With this release we raised the hard requirements to PHP 7. If you are still using PHP 5.6+, this version won’t work anymore on your system and we urge you to upgrade to PHP 7.1 at least.

Using Git


Updating from the git repositories should only involve a pull from the Friendica core repository and addons repository. Remember to also update the dependencies with composer.
cd friendica
git pull
bin/composer.phar install
cd addon
git pull
If you want to switch the branch (e.g. if you helped testing the RC code) please do so after the pull using git checkout master (or develop).

Be aware that the .htaccess file was removed from the git repository in the 2019.01 version. You might have to restore yours from a backup (if you have done local changes) or from the .htaccess-dist if you had not done it before.

Using the Archive Files


If you had downloaded the source files in an archive file (zip or tar.gz) please download the current version of the archive (friendica-full-2019.06.zip and friendica-addons-2019.06.tar.gz) and unpack it on your local computer.

As many files got deleted or moved around, please upload the unpacked files to a new directory on your server (say friendica_new) and copy over your existing configuration (config/local.config.php and config/addon.config.php) and .htaccess files. Afterwards rename your current Friendica directory (e.g. friendica) to friendica_old and friendica_new to friendica.

The files of the dependencies are included in the archive (make sure you are using the friendica-full-2019.06 archive), so you don’t have to worry about them.

Please be aware of the changes in the configuration format in the 2019.03 version. You should follow the instructions linked from your admin panel as soon as possible to move your configuration to the new location.

Post Update Tasks


The database update should be applied automatically, but maybe it gets stuck. If you encounter this, please initiate the DB update manually from the command line by running the script
bin/console dbstructure update
from the base of your Friendica installation. If the output contains any error message, please let us know using the channels mentioned below.

How to Contribute


If you want to contribute to the project, you don’t need to have coding experience. There are a number of tasks listed in the issue tracker with the label “Junior Jobs” we think are good for new contributors. But you are by no means limited to these – if you find a solution to a problem (even a new one) please make a pull request at github or let us know in the development forum.

Contribution to Friendica is also not limited to coding. Any contribution to the documentation, the translation or advertisement materials is welcome or reporting a problem. You don’t need to deal with Git(Hub) or Transifex if you don’t like to. Just get in touch with us and we will get the materials to the appropriate places.

Thanks everyone who helped making this release possible and have fun!

forum.friendi.ca and XMPP support chat down


Hello,
the hoster of one of my servers seems to have severe problems. A lot of servers aren't reachable.
One of the affected machines is the host of the VPS our Friendica Community Forums are running on. Unfortunately, the XMPP support chat is running on that VPS too.

I'm sorry. Stay tuned for more information.

#friendica #forum #support


Info:
Issue solved. Apparently, the VPS was running but network was down. A reboot from the VPS admin panel wasn't possible. The VM didn't respond. So I forced a shutdown. All up and running again. Phew! 😌

Theme Developers

Are there theme developers out there that want to create additional themes for Friendica?

It would be great to have some more crowdpower on that topic. If you are interested, just visit https://github.com/friendica/friendica

Filter our contacts publications

Hello !Friendica Support

Is there a way on #friendica to configure filters on each of your contacts, to be able to see in our "timeline" only some specific posts?
For instance, I'd like to follow one developer of a #fediverse project, but I really don't care about it's sex life. So I'd like to configure the connection to only display posts with specific hashtags.
How would you do that ?
(FYI, this feature is available in #hubzilla and it's called connfilter)
 
I've been on friendica for a few months now and I'm liking it so far. It can federate with Diaspora*, and from mobile I use the browser version
If you want to use the Fediverse through a Facebook-style interface, you may want to try Friendica.

Some good instances to sign up at:

https://social.isurf.ca/
https://nerdica.net/
https://libranet.de/

You can use Friendica through the @fedilab app.

It federates through ActivityPub with Mastodon etc and it also lets you follow RSS feeds as if they were users.

The developers are very active with regular new releases.

G+ style Multi-Column Streams in diaspora, Tumblr, Mastodon, Hubzilla, Friendica, YouMe, and MeWe.

I’ve put together CSS styles which provide multi-column Streams in various social media platforms. This has a huge effect on browsing speed. To use them, you:

1) Download Stylus plugin (Chrome, Firefox or Opera): https://add0n.com/stylus.html

2) Install desired Multi-Column style from here: https://userstyles.org/users/773238

3) Modify the domain it acts on if you're using a different pod

Enjoy!

= = = = = ADDITIONAL NOTES = = = = =

diaspora is the most refined, with a lot of extra features like multicolumn comments, autoexpand all posts, font size customization, and other UI enhancements

Tumblr is also solid; it keeps the standard width of Tumblr posts and is responsive to width (2 or 3 columns)

Mastodon is maybe 95% good, depending on how you prefer to use Mastodon.

Hubzilla is maybe 80% good. Because of the right sidebar, this is limited to two columns by default.

Friendica is maybe 60% good. There's some sort of vertical scrolling bug when the left sidebar is too tall. If the left sidebar is short enough to fit on screen, all is good. But if the left sidebar is too tall, then scrolling gets stuck when you're too near the bottom of the content.

YouMe is maybe 40% good. It works, but it also affects single post view. And YouMe itself is really buggy right now (it only just launched). But the good news is that my userstyle can be used to produce single column (it's normally 2 column, which not everybody likes).

MeWe is maybe 50% good. As with Hubzilla, the right sidebar limits available space. So, it only provides 2 columns by default. And due to the complexity of MeWe, it only applies to the home and Groups pages - so, only single column view if you go to a single group. But as far as I've noticed, it's not buggy.

Of these platforms, the only ones I use significantly are diaspora, Tumblr, and Mastodon. Those will be the best supported, naturally.

Hallo !Friendica Support ich schreibe hier von meinem "Backup Konto" aus weil ich mit meinem eigentlich Konto auf meiner Instanz nicht mehr in das Forum schreiben kann. Ich habe bereits einen "normalen" Post erstellt und @Michael Vogel erwähnt aber dann ist mir eingefallen, dass ich ja über diesen Weg im Forum schreiben kann.

Hier mein Problem, ich zitiere aus dem o.g. Beitrag (https://f.nospy.net/display/73b2629d-145c-507a-1f03-9db338156740):

Hallo @Michael Vogel wie bereits woanders erwähnt, kann ich mit "!" nicht mehr im Support Forum schreiben. D.h. ich kann zwar eine Beitrag schreiben aber im Forum wird dieser nicht angezeigt. Siehe z.b. dieser Post:
https://f.nospy.net/display/73b2629d-195c-5077-1adf-f82965664589
Die Eieruhr neben der Erstellungszeit sagt auch andauernd "Notifer task is pending"
Würde zwar gerne dieses Problem im Supportforum erstellen aber..... 😉 😁

Im Backend hab ich das logging auf "Warning" gestellt. Allerdings wenn ich dieses Log mit "tail -f" beobachte wird genau zu dem Zeitpunkt nichts geloggt. Ein "cat /var/www/html/php.log |grep 73b2629d-195c-5077-1adf-f82965664589"
zeigt in dem Log auch nichts an.
"73b2629d-195c-5077-1adf-f82965664589" sollte doch die ID von dem Beitrag sein oder?

Looking for an alternative to Blogger of ggl

!Friendica Support
Image/Photo
It has been a long time now I'm looking for an alternative to #blogger, a place that is as simple to implement and use and that would allow an easy transfer of what I already built in ggl. I use it mainly to publish pictures and posts over my ceramic and some writing work. In few words, #blogging in an aesthetical though simple environment.
For a moment I though that hubzilla would be an option. Yet all these places, including Friendica and Pluspora, seem to be made for those who now but not the lamba basic user like me. So I haven't found a help file or tutorial that would help me to start up and there I am...
Therefore, I'm posting a shout, a call, a cry for #help and #advice ! :^)
1. Is #Friendica an adequate place for blogging with aesthetical theme ?
2. Would the answer to above question be positive, will libranet.de allow me to do so ? (@[email protected])
3. If answer to question 1 is negative, what do you recommend as free blogging plateform providing similar performance to blogger ?
4. Will such plateform be compatible with Friendica and supported by the instance libranet.de ?

#Friendica has just been updated to version 2019.03

If you haven't tried Friendica lately, this might be a good time to take a look.

It's a Facebook alternative that works with both ActivityPub (Mastodon etc.) and Diaspora. It has a Facebook-style interface and similar features (photo galleries, events, groups etc). You can also follow RSS feeds alongside AP and Diaspora, all in a single news stream. (There are optional add-ons that let admins add even more networks too.)

Some good places to sign up:
https://nerdica.net
https://libranet.de
https://social.isurf.ca

You can find more Friendica instances in the official directory

You can use it through the browser, or through the Fedilab app available on Google Play and F-Droid.

1) Download Stylus plugin (Chrome, Firefox or Opera): https://add0n.com/stylus.html

2) Install desired Multi-Column style from here: https://userstyles.org/users/773238

3) Modify the domain it acts on if you’re using a different pod

I also made multi-column userstyles for other social media sites, but diaspora is the one I've refined the most.

Google+ Style Multi-column Stream


Welcome to diaspora, new folks!

BTW, I put together a CSS userstyle that enhances diaspora with multi-column Stream/comments, auto-expand, and some other niceties.

My Thoughts…One Month Later, (part II)


After one month of test driving two pods of #Diaspora while also creating accounts on #Hubzilla, #Mastodon, #Friendica and #Pixelfed I thought I would organize my initial impressions here in a post. I consider myself a relatively intelligent, well rounded individual who despite being a pre-med college dropout , I have always prided myself on having an open mind to other forms of education and being a self-study, quick learner of new processes, etc., That said, however, I am not of the generation or formal education of computer programming, coding or software developing. My recent experience on the federated social media sites has reminded me of this great handicap.

Then, there was Friendica. After hearing all these wonderful things about this platform, how could I go wrong, right?...WRONG!
This place in a nutshell is a nightmare. Again, has potential with its displayed layout to be promising and even gives a nice little tutorial to get familiar with the 'basics'. It doesn't, however, tell the user that there is not a camera icon in the posting area to post a pic along with your text. You can do this, but at least in my experience, you have to endure a handful of tedious steps to do so prior to each post. For example, I had to click around to things that are not explained like the tab named 'browser' to find a picture icon that enabled me to upload one photo at a time to then select that photo to include in a post. Way more than any other site, just to post a simple text/photo post. Attempts to get further assistance from admins proved futile. In short, this is not the pearl of the federation, at least not for me, as it was described. Literally everything that could be unique and still simple enough for users is too complex and tedious for us regular Janes and Joes out there who are not of the programming generation. This account will be scrapped as soon as I'm finish with this post if I sign on to see I still have yet to receive a reply after one week.

Pixelfed was a nice experience and one account I am definitely keeping. It's layout is like Google + meets a very watered down version of Instagram. For us simpletons, it is basically easy to navigate, almost completely federated and great for posters of photography, memes, and gifs with a 300 character text limit for a brief narrative or description. It utilizes hashtags as well. You can search the directory for people or content and the nicest feature is the built in photo filter option with each post for some nice last minute editing or enhancement of your photo. You are able to easily "like" posts similar to Diaspora with clicking on a heart icon and you are able to comment as well. The menu is simple and self- explanatory with no fancy unique words to cross-learn. There's your 'Profile', your Timeline, and the 'public timeline'. The 'photos' tab shows a nice organized collage type view of your uploaded photos to date and you can organize them yourself. The downside is you are limited to only 125 characters for creating your biography section, it's not fully federated across networks and is almost too simple, but nice for now.

I set up an account to be available via "manage" (verwalten) in #Friendica, now I wanted to separate that account again, so I changed its email address and checked there is no delegation, but still I can see it in /manage.
What is the reason?

#Photo post from #Friendica appears tiny box on #Tusky , an #Android client for #Mastodon

This is case for some on Pleroma Web.

Would support team or any one help me clear this ?
