@ondra OK, so if they appear in search then they are not "lost".

I can't find any errors on the logs and I can't reproduce what you are saying or I am not understanding.

You have multiple hashtags pinned on a column, right? What are the conditions and hashtags, you mind revealing so I can try it?

The 3 dots you mention is on the top of that column when you set it up, right? you see the 3 dots and you refresh the page and what happens?

@ondra thanks, I will look into this later and let you know what I find.

@ondra that’s strange, I haven’t heard about that issue or ran into it. If the posts didn’t contain audio files this patch shouldn’t change anything.
If you could find examples of posts that should show up in your hashtag search and do not, let me know and I can look into it.

@mawr it should be related. Please let me know if that continues to happen after this.

The patch is installed for every instance hosted by Masto.host

Any issues or questions, please let me know.

Thanks 🐘

I got reports that a couple of instances where their federation stopped working. I suspect others also might have a slower federation because of jobs stuck in their Sidekiq queue.

I have done some debugging and came up with a patch github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ that I will start installing in a minute.

You should expect around a 15 second downtime during the patch installation.

This patch will strip metadata from audio files. This was the only way I found to solve this issue until a fix is issued.

@liaizon that’s a great question. File size limits are set by Mastodon not me. From looking at this github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ I would say the limit is 40MB but I could be wrong as there is no specific audio limit set.
If you want to know without testing, I would suggest searching/asking on discourse.joinmastodon.org/

@scy Never thought about it.

I have a very limited amount of time to dedicate to Masto.host as this is a side project. So, I need to be very careful to what I say YES to because I cannot have stuff taking away from the little time I have.

I will keep it in mind but for this year 2019 I already have all my Masto.host to-do list filled with stuff that I think are higher priority.

If you are adventurous you can try running github.com/renatolond/mastodon yourself, this way you get 100% control.

Masto.host boosted

@me I have considered it but it’s not something I plan for a near future. I have other priorities/plans for Masto.host and have limited time to dedicate to it as this is a side project.

The update is finished! Every Mastodon server hosted on Masto.host is now running v3.0.1

Any issues please let me know.

Thanks 🐘

@uxintro Just wanted to let you know that on v3.0.1 you have an admin setting to auto-approve trending hashtags github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

@aral Just wanted that I finished installing v3.0.1 on mastodon.ar.al and now you have an admin setting to auto-approve trending hashtags: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Thanks, @Gargron

I will be starting the update of Mastodon servers hosted in Masto.host to v3.0.1

This will cause a ~15 second downtime.

This new version brings some fixes and adds the ability to auto-approve trending hashtags.

You can read the release notes here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

@andi @VyrCossont @porsupah I have been very hesitant to offer ES because of all the extra resources it uses, my lack of experience with it and some technical stuff that leaves me unsure.

Still, I decided to give it a go and have been testing it in shared environment for a couple of weeks. I will announce it soon as a paid add-on (no way around that as ES uses a significant amount of resources).

It will be a slow roll out because I want to see it in production and track any issues.

@luka @js0000 with v3.0.0 it was introduced "whitelist mode" that allows an instance to only federate with whitelisted domains and the public pages will be locked, so you will only see the login page when you access the domain

It's not a one click option but you can me request to activate it and I can do it for you. Still, I haven't tested it and not sure what will happen on an instance that already is federating with a lot of instances or other issues.

@naii Hello! I'm glad you are enjoying the hosting.

I don't offer Pixelfed hosting (others do, like @support )

Still, if you want to host your own Pixelfed instance you will need to have another server/subdomain but you can also just create an account on another pixelfed instance (eg: pixelfed.social) and use that just to post your images. Like Mastodon, if you host your own instance you are the admin and have control over that instance, if you are a user on another instance you don't

@aral I don't think that's possible. The only option you have is to either turn off trending hashtags or turn the emails notifications for hashtags off (but that will leave the hashtags pending and those will not be displayed in the "trending now" section).
