Friendica issue


Hi guys,

when I post a comment or a reply this is not display in real-time and I have to refresh the page, most probably is my fault, I must have messed up with some settings, how can I restore the expected behavior?

Thanks in advance!

@Daniel you should post this question to the Friendica help forum, which can be done by mentioning !Friendica Support, there is many people that can help you.

Also try to do a refresh of the page by "CTRL-F5", also try another browser to see if the problem is the same then.

Thank you for your advice, I'll try it edit my thread!

@Daniel not sure if editing works in case of mentions, this kind of mention with the ! Instead of @ will cause a special distribution, better make a new post and use the exclamation mark instead of the @

You were totally right, but it seems I had to wait to be accepted in the forum...

@Daniel I thought that is automatic.

@Steffen K9 🐰 isn't the contact request approved automatically? Can someone post to the forum without being a contact?



 

Switching the contact type


Hi there,

how can I change a contact from #Friend to #Subscriber and vice-versa?

Thanks!

I haven't seen that in the Help anywhere, but you could note their network name, Drop them, then Add them again. I'm still new to Friendica, though, so don't take this as gospel.

Eventually I got how to do it...

First: you go to contact icon on top (it depends by your theme) and it opens a list of your contacts

Second: each contact as a row of small icons you have to press the one with the tooltip that says "view contact".

Third: on the status' contact there is a button with a label "disconnect/unfollow", when it says that it means you are friends each others, when it says "connect/follow" it means the contact is "a fan of your". While disconnecting from a friend is invisible for the other reconvert it in a friend activates a notification to that contact.



 

Why is Friendica bloated by tons of trackers?


I noticed that Friendica has a tons of trackers, mine are disabled by my browser extensions, however Diaspora has 0 trackers.

It is something related with my Friendica server or it something that belongs to Friendica itself?

I am pretty confused... 🤔

@daniel01 That's odd I don't see that. But why don't you ask the admin Adam Clark (kinetix@social.isurf.ca). I believe he's a good guy.

I guess that mostly depends by how many youtube videos are showed in your stream as well as many twitters links are active... 🤔
