We're updated to the current -RC code.

!iSurf Support

Hey everyone,

We're now running the current -rc code. I immediately filed a couple of bugs about admin settings that were acting strange.

If you see any odd behaviour, please report it here or to the Friendica support forum.


@Adam Clark

Thanks, today isurf is working properly for me!

Hi Daniel,
Very glad to hear it! I'm not sure what would have changed, but I did update with the latest -RC fixes last night (not expecting that there was anything that would affect you).

I wanted to ask, though - I noticed your account is set as a soapbox account (advanced account/profile type) - is that something you wanted set for sure?

Hi Adam,

Again thank you very much. It was like a week that I had issue with the connection but I can't tell why, then I found your post. Anyway luckily everything has been solved.

I changed my setup maybe I selected it just to try and completely forgot about then.

Sounds good, was just curious about it. Again, glad to hear it's resolved, but do let me know if you have issues again, or have any other questions!

Chat / XMPP support and testing

@iSurf Support

Hi all,

I'm not sure if you know or not, but Friendica has a built-in chat option that we pretty much have to leave disabled, as it has some bugs that conflict with the two most common & usable themes. It also relies on a javascript chat app that is no longer developed.

That said, we do have an integrated chat system on the iSurf Social platform, which you can use with either a standard XMPP client (such as Pidgin, gajim, or Conversations for Android or Xabber for Android - there's IOS apps too), or if you'd like to test/try out a web-based chat client here, which I'm going to have some discussion with the developers on replacing the old unsupported client with, please give a try. It's a rediculously simple setup, nothing fancy. You use your username & password to login in to it.

If you would like any further information on how to use any of the other clients I mentioned, please let me know!

#XMPP #friendica #chat #webchat #jsxc

I should follow up quickly on this... I did mis-speak in my original post as I was confusing one chat addon with another. Friendica's 'XMPP' addon uses an old version of converse, while there is another XMPP chat addon that uses jappix mini.

I have been toying with updating the converse code, and it looks like recent versions of converse have some pretty ugly UI bugs in them - at least with the browsers I'm testing with. I'm going to go back a few releases for testing today, see if I can't get a usable solution in place for the addon.

Pluspora also operates an XMPP server.

Terms of Service 1.0 posted

!iSurf Support

Hi all,

Please have a look at the Terms of Service that I've finally posted. If there's anything that stands out to you as a problem or you think should be revised, please let me know.


!iSurf Support

Quick question based on general comments I've seen about Friendica over on G+. Some users are looking for a set of rules, terms of service, etc to decide whether they agree with the way a node might be run before signing up. Have you considered posting some information or a link on the main page?

As for moderation rules, I generally used the Google policy on G+ communities shown here but I will need to setup some rules of my own for community forums I run (which will be similar - I've used a 3 strike rule for many years as a professional moderator.)

OK, version 1.0 of the T&C has been posted. It shows as a link in your user drop-down menu ("Terms of Service") and is linked on the user registration page and the impressum.

Oh, and the Impressum is linked on the home page now too.

Profile Not Found Message (on same or different nodes) - new topic

The problem happens when connecting on this node with a different node, or on the same node:
1. Different nodes: I sent a connection request to someone on the nerdica node. I am on a different node. It said the request went through. Then I clicked on the notifications box to get notifications from the contact, and it said "Profile Not Found." Why? Can I only get notifications if the person decides to accept my connection request?

2. Same Node: Also, when I click on one of my contacts' profiles (on this same node), Allen Middleton, it says "Profile Not Found. This resource may be added in the future" (or something to that effect. He gets the same thing if he clicks on the icon for my profile in his Contacts list or on his profile. He had originally set his account up with 2 profiles & I tried to accept the contact request on both - maybe that is what caused the problem. In any case, there seems to be a problem with being able to click on profiles & see profiles, even with people who have accepted connection request and with whom I have "mutual friendship" marked... show more

Hey @Tara Tisinger and @Allen Middleton - I switched the site over to the new release candidate code a couple of days ago. Are either of you able to check up and see how the contact between each other is going, and whether it needs fixing still?

The same thing happens. If I click on his name in the Directory, or if I click on his icon on my profile, I get the message: "Page not found
The requested resource could not be found but may be available in the future." @Allen Middleton @Adam Clark

This is interesting as I see one other admin who has run in to a similar issue. I wonder if removing & adding again will make any difference. (I will also go to the other support thread and put in my 'metoo')

I will try removing and adding - I will let him know. I will tell you what happens.

Adam, we have disconnected & reconnected, and guess what! I can now see his profile when I click on his Directory icon, and also when I click on his icon in my profile! So, it worked this time! Thank you for all your help!
@Adam Clark @Allen Middleton

Wow, I'm really glad to hear that one has resolved itself! Thanks for letting me know!

@Adam Clark well that might explain why my event calendar is all white. This was something someone else reported with the latest rc... can we get that fixed?

Hmm, I hadn't noticed that the calendar was hooped. I've followed up on the bug hopefully the data provided helps pinpoint the problem.

great job! what was the fix?

Rolling back one of the composer components a version.

Thanks for pointing it out, by the way!

The message appears right after I hit the submit button for my comment, and knocks me out of the forum. I return to forum by clicking on my profile, clicking on the isurf support forum icon, and returning to the forum - and then I see that the comment is posted. It just seems strange that it knocks me out of the forum and I have to then return to the forum before I can see that the comment is posted.
