Question. When click on a tag I get a new column with the toots containing this tag. Say #photography or #photo

But, I see only hits from other mastodon instances, not from my local server.
So I don't see my own photo's, but also not the images from other users off, in this case, photog.social.

Is this by design? Did I miss a setting or something?

@Jondor You should be able to see the posts from your own instance (as a matter of facts, I can see the posts from mastodon.social in my column).

It seems like a federation problem. You should get in touch with your server admin to see what's what πŸ˜‰

@n0m1s That's what I would expect. Of course I see the images in the local timeline, but I would also expect them in when searching for a tag.
I'll see what the local admin (@ambassador) says on the subject. Thanks!

@Jondor @n0m1s We can see local toots in hash tag columns.

Do you have a filter setup anywhere or some of our accounts muted?

@ambassador
I just uploaded an image as you can see in the home column and in the local timeline. After that I clicked on "#photo" with the results in the thirth timeline.
No filters (i found that page in the settings, it's empty) and no muted accounts, especially not my own..;)

When paging through the #photo column I simply find no image from my own instance.

@Jondor Can you refresh the page / click "Back" then re-open the tag?

@ambassador same result in the #photo column only my photo now disappeared from the local timeline too..

@Jondor That's very strange.

Are you using PrivacyBadger, uMatrix or similar tools?

@ambassador "disconnect" but it doesn't block anything on this server (there's only one connection between mastohost.com and photog.social

@ambassador everything is fairly clean and new as I'm somewhat new to mastodon. And other google+ refugee..

@Jondor I understand πŸ€—

I need to loop @hugo into this thread though.

We're using their hosting service and this is the first report of disappearing elements from TLs.

@ambassador actually if I look in the federated timeline I also see my toot on the bootstrap warning, but not the next on being clean and being new. Same for the local timeline.

@Jondor It almost seems like there is a websocket hiccup or something.

I'm not really sure. I definitely need to defer to @hugo since they are doing the underlying server hosting.

Hang tight! We'll get this πŸ’ͺ

@ambassador @hugo

No probs.. Being new I have no set expectations yet.. ;) Thanks!

@Jondor Hopefully we can set some reasonable expectations πŸ˜‰

@hugo @Jondor yes, I see it on the local timeline and in the hashtag view

@ambassador so it sounds that it’s not an instance problem.

@Jondor can you please test using another browser?

@hugo @ambassador Let's see what happens to this toot under firefox

@hugo @ambassador Two toots. One as a reply which doesn't show up anywhere, the other as a normal toot with public setting which shows in the local and federated timeline.

No security plugins here btw as I hardly use firefox other then when testing webdesigns.

@Jondor what reply can't you see? I see the "Let's see what happens to this toot under firefox" in your home timeline, as expected.

Was there another reply toot?

@ambassador

@hugo @ambassador No, but after a hard reload of the page it's gone from my timelines as is the photo with the magpie which i also posted with tags

@Jondor ok, let's do one step back and deal with one thing at a time.
Is there any reply missing? You mentioned, that one reply you doesn't show anywhere. Is that reply not in your home timeline?

@ambassador

@hugo @ambassador This reply I see as notification, but not in any other column.

Show more

@hugo @ambassador and a toot with an unsharp magpie flying away. It shows on the local and federated timeline but not under #photo or #photography

@hugo @ambassador and after a hard reload all has dissappeared from all the timelines..

@Jondor what do you mean? nothing on the timelines now? @ambassador
