Hello folks!

We're going to be releasing a new experiment to help improve platform safety and reduce spam and malicious content ahead of the full federation release.

#pixelfedLabs #pixelfed #safety

Please update your pixelfed instance ASAP.

We have fixed a bug introduced earlier today that could have locked a single user out of their account.

We apologize for not catching this bug sooner.

Special thanks to @tuneintodetuned for alerting us to this bug.

To see if you have an affected profile on your instance, run the following command in artisan tinker:


If the response is 0, you have no affected accounts.

To fix an affected account:

$email = 'users email here';
$user = User::whereEmail('')->first();
$user->email = $email;
$user->email_verified_at = now();

- PSA Update -

We have shipped a fix and tested in production.

When we moved the email settings to its own page, we did not update the logic, leading to an unfortunate bug.

If a user updated their name, bio or website on an instance running the latest commits, it would clear their email and email verified at timestamp.

The bug would only affect one account per instance due to the unique constraint of the email column.

It's easy to fix the affected account by setting their email manually...

⚠️PSA ⚠️

If you run an instance and updated to the latest commits today, please put the instance in maintenance mode until further notice.

More info to follow shortly.

PSA: If you are having issues with Redis/Horizon not generating thumbnails, federating or loading notifications and see the following error in your logs:

production.ERROR: Non-static method Redis::zRangeByScore() cannot be called statically

You probably have the redis php extension installed and is conflicting with the predis library we use.

To fix the issue, you can uninstall phpredis or update the database config file to load the proper driver as described here:
