the last time I created a profile/channel in an hub I no longer seen the "premium channel" thing ( i don't remember the real name of this - I think is premium)
It is because of the new 'pro' 'basic' 'standard' scheme?

I find it to be a useful configuration, regardless of  basic type pro etc ...
I support for having it in all schemes (basic standard pro).

It is not available at all in basic because it doesn't work with federation and federation is the primary role of basic.

It is available in both standard and pro. In standard it isn't very useful if one uses federation, because it is not possible to make it work with federation.

In 'pro' complex features which have complicated explanations and side effects are enabled by your account techlevel setting. The higher your techlevel, the more advanced features are made available to you. Premium channels are available only at level 4 or above as it is best used by developers able to create/implement payment gateways and workflows.

ok, thank you, now I understand => technical limitations due to federation. But good to know that also in standard I can find this.

you said many times that when I create a clone then I have to add back the diaspora contacts, but every time I have a clone, I see the old diaspora contacts  inside the clone, and then if I try to add from diaspora the clone everything seems to works , but in truth it does not work this thing. The fact of having already diaspora contacts even in the clone actually creates many problems. Practically it does not work. It was better if when we  create a clone the old diaspora contacts are not added automatically.

Import is not yet implemented in Diaspora, but might make it in some time later this year or next.

What's *supposed* to happen in Hubzilla is that if you connect with a Diaspora channel from a different hubzilla clone, it should add that clone location into abook_instance for the given connection. Then you can communicate from either; although if the original clone is still alive it should redeliver any posts destined for that connection.

It's possible that we detect the connection already exists and abort the connection request before adding an additional location to abook_instance. If that's the case it's a bug.

I tried a hub with probably a dev version , and I was not able to put the photo/avatar of my profile, the photo is loaded but is not accepted, practically you can not choose a photo for the profile

Try setting

util/config system ignore_imagick 1

which will disable imagick and then we can see if it's happening in the module or in imagick. Once that question is answered you can set the same setting to 0. Should probably dig up the post from the other day. Here is what happens....

We upload the photo. This should save it in your files area. Since it is a photo, we will also create imgscale 0,1,2,3 and store it in your photo albums.

Then we invoke the crop dialogue. It's unclear from your description "crop doesn't though" whether this means that you didn't get the crop screen or you did get the crop screen but when you submitted it, there was no obvious indication that it succeeded.

Anyway once crop is finished, we create the square imgscales, 4, 5, and 6 for the photo and set the photo_usage flag to 1 in order to turn it into a profile photo.

That's what happens. If something isn't happening, it would be nice to know what part of this process *is* happening so we know where it stops. And make sure your code is current because it was broken yesterday. And I'm talking about dev. If you're running master it's a whole 'nuther kettle of fish.

Either I missed a step when testing or not all my updates finished until I rebooted yesterday.

Crop is working just fine today for the same photos that I tried yesterday. Saved your description of what happens for future reference.

The crop screen was coming up but was unable to adjust. I tried different browsers on different machines with plugins disabled. Apparently not a Hubzilla issue.

you do not think that in  /pubsites we must separate those with UNO-version from the others?

this will give confusion ...

I have a few channels and I have created clones in hubzilla hubs etc .. but I have noticed that now the 'connection requests' from other zot-people to/for my channel, although accepted in the original channel (in redmatrix), are not accepted in my hubzilla clone .
As if "friendship" is not propagated.
I wonder if is a bug, or just an accident that happens sometimes?

maybe it's just something that has been lost along the way, something that happens occasionally.

Maybe I'll try to do some tests.

For what I have understood the requests came from hubzilla-channel to/for a channel in redmatrix and were accepted in redmatrix, but remains pending  in the hz clone.
 Tue, 26 Jan 2016 15:59:22 -0800 
to be clear, the requests from two people who were already using hubzilla.
 Wed, 20 Jan 2016 08:16:22 -0800 
I think I'm asking for something impossible, perhaps ...
but ok:

it is possible make sure that, when our website/server is off-line, our contact,  clicking in our icon/avatar (in a discussion- in a comment) , is routed automatically in the page of our clone (where in which case the site is online) ?

But on what basis do you call a hub "down"? Because if it's accessible for your hub but not for your browser (or the opposite) it doesn't make sense to redirect you to one rather than the other?

That's a valid point, but the majority case is that it will be down for both. You could always do this check and redirection in javascript on the browser. Even an imperfect fallback strategy may be better than no fallback strategy at all - especially if we know that your channel has a backup. Seems silly to only use it for communications services and not for web access to the channel. Also worth mentioning is that your hub is also going to need to be involved to do magic-auth; so if it isn't available from your hub it's not significantly different in terms of usability than being unavailable from the browser.  

But I'm just saying it's possible. I'm not offering to code it or implement it.

I am sorry if I am often here but I would like to make a new feedback from newbiies.

Some people create and account without a channel and they wonder what is a channel and why do they have to create it.

As an admin of a hub I also notice that I have hald account created without channel.

Any suggestion to imrove that. 1. Understanding about what is a channel 2 ideas how to have account without channel
 Sun, 10 Jan 2016 07:53:18 -0800 
for what I know, the profile here is called channel, and there is no other way. When you create an account you create  a channel. Channel=profile .
 Sun, 10 Jan 2016 07:56:21 -0800 
the channel (profile) can be of various types, can for example be a group/forum...or just be a personal profile, or other things maybe.

@experimentorum doc bugs are pretty easy DIY fixes even for people who aren't hackers: the docs are just BBcode files, and on GitHub I remember seeing there's even a feature that lets you edit them in place, automatically forks and prepares a pull request.

for what I have understood the 'cloud tag' only works if the owner of the channel uses the tags, while the tags written by others in the forum-wall does not appear in the cloud tag.

currently in /pubsites we have a mixed list of redmatrix and hubzilla, I think this confuses (and not a little) #newcomers, can we do something?
 Sun, 11 Oct 2015 11:38:50 -0700 

sometimes  i have double notifications ( for ex. the last comment from Letter Bomber)
Andrew Manning
 Sun, 11 Oct 2015 12:56:12 -0700 
I agree with @Letter Bomber 's comments. This is a difficult issue in my opinion. It seems like the primary purpose of the /pubsites list is to allow people to "try before they buy", because otherwise there is no way to experience the software (we have no videos, slideshows, or demo hub yet). I don't see this list as an ideal way for newcomers to find their "home" hub for the long term, because why would they entrust their personal communications and data to a stranger who has no obligation to them? The only reason this doesn't seem completely foolish is because that is what everyone does these days online when they open accounts on random sites (SnapChat, Facebook, Gmail, etc) and freely divulge all of their personal information.

But ranting aside, my personal opinion is that the pubsites list is something that should not be an official part of the Hubzilla project. This list is surely viewed as a tacit endorsement of the listed hubs (regardless of the fact that it is not). Who knows what kind of experience newcomers will have if they register on a random hub on this list?

If an individual in the role of a web developer is seeking to learn more about Hubzilla, they probably just want to try a demo account to see what the platform can offer them before deciding to install their own hub for their organization. If an individual seeks to learn more about Hubzilla to use it for personal social networking, then they should find a hub through some chain of trust, even a tenuous one. The rating system could be a useful tool for this purpose (and I think this is exactly why it was created), but currently not many ratings exist.

there is some public hub of hubzilla with the admin that updates every day (or almost)?

#1 - no. This way we can have content like #1 (which is a very common construct) without it turning into tags. Workaround, use #1984 which was produced by surrounding the number with double quotes i.e. # followed by "1984". I have no idea how or if this will federate to other networks because all have different tagging rules.

#2 - #fixed. There was a regression introduced (actually a few hundred regressions introduced) when the markdown conversion library was replaced with a supposedly better one several months ago.
