Pin a comment on top of all the comments

#hubzilla #support #comment #pin #thread
Most of the times a post have a question in it and there would be a correct answer to it or a comment that needs special attention. Pining of the comments can help the audience to find the answer quickly  and with ease by not reading the entire thread for the best solution.
So, is there a way to pin a comment on the top of the post ? If no, then can the owner of the post edit and reflect a comment in the post as best answer?

No. No (*).

Technically the owner  can edit or delete a comment on their own thread, but currently only the delete functionality is reflected in the UI. You can handcraft a URL which will in fact edit the post.
Zoom on mobile

I have enable zoom  "Enable user zoom on mobile devices" but I can't zoom the pages on the mobile. Is there something else need to be done ?
Just tried Chrome on Android - and it doesn't let me resize, so it's a browser thing.
I'm on Chrome and can resize pages. Maybe a version thing as well.
On Firefox with Desktop mod on zoom works. With other latest updated version browsers without the option of desktop version the zoom don't work.

1. Can I increase the size of the notices to something like 300 or 500 ?
2. How to put the notices in side bar with drop down(like new notices and feeds) for the already seen notices for quick access to them?
3. Feeds are there on the wall, but its hard to find out the comments order in the public feeds. Is there way to sort them like the notices are sorted?
4. Can new feeds from a connection be made silenced so new feeds from that connection comes on wall but are not shown on the sidebar as drop downs?
Anyone with the solution for 4? I an subscribed to a news channel which sends lot of feeds that I want only on my wall page but not under new network activities.
Unable to add rss feed to my connection

#rss #hubzilla #Feed
!Hubzilla Support Forum
I have enabled the rss feeds in the admin  interface and enabled the GNU-Social plugin too. But still I am unable to add rss feed to my connections.I am getting  Remote channel or protocol unavailable error. Is there something else I have to do ?
I am on nginx.
It's not just an RSS Client - it's also a way to discuss the news with other channels
And another question. Is there a way to change the RSS Feed avatar?

Provide one in the feed. But we don't recheck the avatars on feeds so if you do change it you'll probably have to wipe out the xchan record and start over.

I believe feeds are checked roughly once an hour currently, the quoted documentation is old.
@Mike i've noticed the feed refreshes once an hour. Is there a way to set it per feed. Say we have this feed we would like to be refreshed every 10 min or so.
Zeronet on onion[Tor]

  últim editat: Wed, 09 May 2018 14:19:54 -0700  
I tried federation platforms on Tor but none of them worked as expected without the ssl on Tor. Communication of the instances with the normal internet and Tor using proxy is another hurdle. As a alternative I tried Zeronet p2p server less platform and made  proxies of it to a normal domain and a onion domain. The communication between normal internet and Tor worked perfectly.
Even the normal domain can be hidden by Tor SOCKS. The zites are (not site,for zeronet its zite) served by the people who view your zites or want to serve them personally. There are lot of apps like mail,blog,wiki,etc and you can clone any one of them and start a fresh zite for yourself. A zites can be made from scratch too.
For domain you can buy bit domain or use normal bitcoin address for your zites. You can also have vanity bitcoin address with first few letters representing  your name or keywords you like. Further you can serve the zites you want to and remove the other. For large zites like blogs, a download limit can be set so the blog zites refresh itself on this limit only. For eg. if blog zite limit is set to 20M then latest blogs on the zite are updated to 20M and previous blogs are removed.

Zite served with Tor

Zites and files served by you and available offline.

The zite can be cloned on a click and ready to be served as your personal zite.

Zeronet Wiki.Can be cloned and served as your wiki with fresh content.
Are these type of p2p platforms threat to conventional way of hosting?

And following yesterday's release, we are happy to open the beta-testing phase for YunoHost 3.0 on Debian Stretch, as well as the migration mechanism for those on Jessie ! 🎉

It should now be relatively okay to run YunoHost on Stretch, as long as you are comfortable with command line and prepared for a few bugs and apps incompatibility 😅.

Hoping for a stable during June, depending on how things goes 😉 !

What about the new cool 360 virtual tours and videos.

If you need to installba whole different wen server it's no longer a plugin but a different software. A plugin says: here is the photo, ok I'll take it and serve you with the required code automatically and fully from within HZ.
Needing to install a different webserver alongside HZ (of you are running on httpd) is overachieving. And an additional software, i.e. not a plugin.
Hmm, didn't see anything in the marzipano docs about requiring nginx.
The downloadable zipfile just contains two scripts: marzipano.js and marzipano.swf
Setting up a plugin equivalent to the marzipano tool to use the marzipano.js to create/edit  a 360 view
probably would be a good deal of work though.
Any server platform should work. Even the database will not be required.
if I can not see or received some  new like or comment, WHY is at the top of the grid again?!
It  makes absolutely no sense. If I receive new things it's ok ...
but if I lost some comment in the street, it did not have to return to the top.
It happens to me too sometimes. But don't you see the alerts in the notice field ? They tend to be there despite of comments and likes being there in feeds or not.
no, I don't see alerts, nothing.
Change default tab to posted order in activity and change the app picture.

1. How to change the default tab to posted order rather then commented order in activity?
2. How to change the default notice app logo/pic(it give wrong impression of having empty profile picture when glanced at it)?
@Mike Macgirvin
It works on my activity page, but when I access the activities with the my different privacy group then it goes back to "commented order"

Strange - if I do this my privacy groups are also in posted order. It's only the 'All Channels' (reset) option which goes back to normal order. I've just fixed this and will submit in a few minutes. As a workaround you could just click 'Activities' on the top bar instead of 'All Channels'.

If you see something else going on here, let us know.
Thanks, it is working from activity button on the top bar. thumbs up sign tone 1

[Nginx] HTTP-Splitting vulnerability

!Hubzilla Support Forum
Gixy shows HTTP-Splitting vulnerability in the nginx.conf.

==================== Results ===================

>> Problem: [http_splitting] Possible HTTP-Splitting vulnerability.
Description: Using variables that can contain "\n" or "\r" may lead to http injection.
Additional info:
Reason: At least variable "$uri" can contain "\n"
Pseudo config:

location / {

    if ($is_args != ) {
        rewrite ^/(.*) /index.php?q=$uri&$args last;
    rewrite ^/(.*) /index.php?q=$uri last;

location ^~ /.well-known/ {
    rewrite ^/(.*) /index.php?q=$uri&$args last;

Started a github issue :
Replacing $uri to $request_uri  broke my instance. Can people using nginx confirm the same result ?
I have changed to this and its working. I will test more if everything works as usual.

What about:

location ^~ /.well-known/ {
    rewrite ^/(.*) /index.php?q=$uri&$args last;

Gixy still gives me warning for this.

Thanks for the commit.
Custom links in the left side-bar

1. I can't delete a wiki page which I created before I imported my identity on the same instance because of the instance crash.
2. How can I give permission to to wiki pages so that it can be edited by other people.
3. How to delete the post of a followed channel beyond certain number of days. For eg. A news channel which only keeps 30 days post on my hub.

Is there a known Hubzilla instance hosted on an onion domain? And can a instance hosted on normal domain communicate with it?
I have tried installing Hubzilla on a onion domain,its working well on a single instance. Can't say how it will do when there are multiple instances on the Tor.
Can I disable ssl to use  the Hubzilla on onion domain ?  If yes, will the instance work normal with other onion Hubzilla instances?
@bob has done quite a bit of work on federating the onions in FreedomBone, see his blog post , which deals mainly with Pleroma. I am not sure if he tried Hubzilla, but the gist of the article is

Recently it has become possible to proxy Pleroma through Tor so that the servers can federate using Tor's DNS resolver, so I've added this as the default behavior both for the ordinary version of Freedombone

Bob Mottram, FreedomBone va escriure:
You should now be able to access Pleroma from the onion address and also federate with other instances which also support server to server onion addresses via a tor proxy.

You will likely need something similar for Hubzilla.

I just saw support question on mastodon. But I don't know how to reply it from Hubzilla or how to embedded this in post.
I would like to read the answer to that question.

Btw. to answer someone from hubzilla to mastodon if you instance supports federation to mastodon, you need to connect to that channel.
