As we are running the latest and greatest Beta currently. This post will be a list of all known bugs & fun things that we are dealing with.

Please comment if you have a bug so we can help make the next Lemmy version.

Known Bugs

  • Video links are not embeddable when they have a thumbnail. Issue: (UI-#2418)
  • FIXED: Local and All pagination (Clicking Next) results in 25-30 seconds load times. Issue: (Lemmy-#4618)
  • Federation with LemmyWorld
    • We have created a server in Amsterdam which is close enough to LemmyWorld where we can ingest all of the Activities, and then batch-send them to Reddthat. Currently it is performing very well. It is still early in testing but all signs point to solving our activity backlog issue!
  • Private messages are broken #2439-ui

    I can’t seem to get the default lemmy UI to change views at all today. Trying to switch subscribed/local/all or trying change the sort order results in all entries getting highlighted briefly then the same threads are shown.

      I bet it’s something to do with the API / caching. Last month-ish we enabled NGINX caching to help with the “spikey” nature. It should only affect the main front end, but I hadn’t tested the frontends extensively.

      I got the same issue. Even after modifying the sort settings it stayed being “hot”.

        Glad to know it’s not just me. I think there might be more going on than just a caching issue though since when I look at the URLs requested in my browser’s dev tools it seems like it’s actually requesting the wrong data from the API. It looks like it’s always requesting https://reddthat.com/api/v3/post/list?limit=20&sort=New&type_=Subscribed twice per click for me – with the requests raced – regardless of whether I click on Local or All or try to change the sort order. (Subscribed + New sort order is my default view; you might get something different if you have a different default view or are testing it logged out.)

    This might be another mlmym thing, but post previews seem to be getting the ?format=jpg&thumbnail=96 treatment even for non-pictrs links. e.g. I am seeing that added to images from catbox.moe, i.postimg.cc, and other sources.

    This might just be a mlmym issue, but I’ve noticed that posts in profiles are in a jumbled order. e.g. a comment I made a week ago is on the second page of my profile while posts from months ago are on the first page… https://old.reddthat.com/u/e0qdk

    I’ve also noticed that where it says "<thread title> by <username> in <community>" lists the wrong username. It shows the username of the profile you’re viewing when it should be showing the username of who made the thread. (That’s definitely a mlmym issue though and not a new one – it’s just been bugging me.)

    Edit: Found another bug while posting this. "<thread title> by <username> in <community>" when posted without backticks gets rendered as " in ". i.e. everything in angle brackets is removed instead of being escaped. It gets replaced by <!-- raw HTML omitted --> in the output. Something’s really wrong there.

      Hmm… maybe you viewed your profile at the exact time when our database updated the ‘aggregates’? As I can’t seem to replicate that problem.

      https://github.com/rystaf/mlmym/blob/ba4b330ca05df00a74817ed49ca71ea8848c4614/templates/activities.html#L13 it has been hardcoded to whatever user you are viewing. 'Cause technically (I guess?) the comment is by username. I agree it does not make much sense. (Submitted an issue on mlmym for you)

        The problem still shows up on my profile (including if I view it logged out) and the order is persistent until I comment – but still jumbled afterwards. e.g. right before posting this “Penguins in the Bathroom [Penguindrum]” is at the bottom of the first page despite being a post I made 4 months ago, and right above it is “It’s just one of those days… [Nichijou]” from just under two months ago with a screenshot from Nichijou as a comment just above that – but my comments on things like the Kendama Core post and the April Fool’s Day Shrek thread are on the second page despite being much more recent.

        Looking at your profile right now as well, I see a comment on “Frequent short downtimes lately?” from 8 months ago at the bottom of the first page while your comment about Meta’s Threads from 2 weeks ago is at the top the second page.

        Looking at it logged out, it seems like it’s trying to sort user profiles by Hot by default. I didn’t notice that before since I have default sort set to New – which it definitely is not doing for profiles even though it adds it to the URL. (I’m not sure if it’s actually the Hot sort though – it might be ignoring that too…)

        Thanks. My ability to interact with Github is limited since I absolutely refuse to give Microsoft my phone number.

    I’m not sure where this change is coming from (I don’t see a version number update listed), but dark mode in mlmym seems to have very suddenly changed just a few minutes before I posted this – <link rel="stylesheet" href="/_/static/dark.css?v=0.0.40%0a" media="(prefers-color-scheme:dark)"> is missing from updated pages leading to things like the envelope being bright white when it was a nice subtle grey before.

    Edit: It seems like this was also paired with adding the class “dark” to the body, but this is not equivalent to the old appearance. (Removing class="dark" from the body and adding the old CSS link back reverts the styling change as far as I can tell.)

      👀

      Reverted 😓

      As I was looking at mlmym’s docs, I thought I had forgot to turn dark mode on

        Thanks! It looks the way I’m used to again now.

        Maybe that option is supposed to make the default view dark mode? I don’t know why it would do things differently than enabling dark mode myself in settings, but I guess it does.
