@fatboy @pixelfed Yea. It feels incomplete without an app, no matter what they introduce


Hats off to your super work!!
Highly appreciate if you can do any of the following earliest possible

1.The feature to change the logo,title
2.The feature to delete messsge from inbox and make the text area of messaging responsive without zooming to text area also allowing keyboard punctuation to messaging 
3.responsiveness for phones and gif support when viewed under profile gif shows no preview 
4. The feature to manually validate a user link if they don’t get confirmation mail

@pixelfed is anyone else experiencing this navigation glitch? It’s been like this for me since the latest update.

@pixelfed I don't.
Why develop this kind of (very) secondary functionality when:
- the federation doesn't work
- comments doesn't work
- notifications doesn't work
- publishing photos easily is not possible
- a wide view of the pictures is not possible
- a grid (masonry style) is not possible
- and a lot of extremely frustrating details impossible to list here in less than 500 characters are everywhere on the application and spoil the user experience.

Just, why? 😕

@nt Thank you for your feedback, can you be more specific by what you mean about federation, comments and notifications not working? We have shipped a number of bug fixes, are you running the latest version?

We are working on a new desktop compose UI, should be easier to use!

An alternate post/profile layout is in development, you will be able to have more natural (wider) photo previews and a masonry layout on your profile.

@pixelfed I can give an example regarding federation and related stuff (comments, notifications…):

Yesterday I published that : photo.lapineige.fr/p/Lapineige
As you can see, from Pixelfed I can only see 2 comments.
From mastodon I can see 2 extra comments. All of them are publicly visible.



For none of these comments I received a notification.
The only way to know someone commented one of my post… is to watch them regularly, searching for new comments.

(From PF) Like and share counts are zero (even if I had a few like notifications - 11 of them).
I have to watch it from mastodon to see that it has 1 like (instead of 11) and 7 boosts (btw most of the time boosts are visible only from mastodon, and likes only from PF. Here this is a strange mix).


I have hundreds of example like this, especially a lot of key/core feature missing and hundreds of tiny to big UX issues :(

(as @nt said, the list would be way too long for a few toots)

@Lapineige It appears you are not running the latest version, we fixed comment notifications in the last release.

You should be receiving notifications for all comments, please update!

@pixelfed oh indeed I was running v0.11.0 instead of v0.11.1, that's strange I thought I had updated it correctly… 🤔

Updating right now 🙂


And indeed I now have notifications coming from new comments. Great 🙂

Where is MomentUI ?? 😱
Was it removed ? :(((((

@Lapineige MomentUI has been deprecated, we are working on a new version that will be as feature complete as MetroUI!

@Lapineige Yes! You will be able to customize some aspects.

Posts will look similar to old MomentUI along with some new stuff like meta fields (Camera type, aperture, focal length, exposure, iso, exif and more)

The upcoming Drive feature will allow you to easily manage your media, and the desktop compose UI will adapt to your workflow based on how you use it.

We ❤️ photography, and have big plans to help improve and embrace it!

@pixelfed About the federation, it is impossible to find other account and avatars are not federated.
Notifications exists only for likes and private messages (Was it important/urgent?), not for share and comments.
About the comments, as @Lapineige says, there is only one level of messages, it is impossible to see and reply to other.

In short, the features are there if you want, but all of them are unfinished, or even barely initiated, so I consider them not working.
(I’m running on v 0.11.1)

@nt You should be receiving notifications for all comments, shares and mentions.

This sounds like a bug, please make an issue on our GitHub with your instance info you can find on the admin dashboard diagnostics page.
