Evening all.

I've created a status page to monitor all services I maintain to run Sync for Lemmy.

There's not too many at the moment but will keep updating as I create new APIs etc.

Cheers, Lj

Upcoming releases (self.syncforlemmy)
submitted 3 months ago by ljdawson to c/syncforlemmy

Hey everyone.]

So update 98/99 has gone live which fixes the crashes (thanks for the reports).

I'm gearing up for a pretty sizable release but just wanted to check in and ask if there was any issues you're having that I should know about or any new feature requests.

Sorry for the bad comms but I'm making my way through lots of messages and posts on here. Thanks for the patience as I get through these all.

Cheers, Lj

Recently I started noticing that a lot of posts will mark as read for a second then go back to unread when viewing just the image or article. It's not all posts though and I haven't determined a pattern yet, but opening the comments seems to mark as read on refresh even though the post looks unread before refreshing.

I'm on version 122 of Sync on Android.

Starting yesterday, when I click a link to view the image or comments, the link doesn't appear "read" when I go back to the feed.

I know Sync hasn't updated, but yesterday I updated Chrome and rebooted my phone, in case that's relevant.

I keep clicking the same posts over and over and can't use Hide Read option to only see new stuff.

I can't see what I'm typing in landscape orientation. I type in landscape 100% of the time.

It happened recently, the share function doesn't seem to be pulling the URL from the page.

Edit: this is with Firefox mobile beta 127.0b9 as my default browser

This is not happening on every post, but I'm seeing "There are no comments" more and more on posts where there are comments. The comment counter in the example pic shows 8. And I know there is at least one (I made a comment).

Any ideas?

Edit: I did try clearing cache and storage with no effect.

How can I see totals per up and down vote in sync? Right now it combines them.

Images not showing in body (lemmy.blahaj.zone)
submitted 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago) by [email protected] to c/syncforlemmy

Not sure if it's just me but I've noticed I've never seen any images in the body of a post on sync, though I have on a browser. I assumed in the past the user just forgot to add images but I now found a button to open them. Are they meant to be embedded in the large empty space?

Just incase this issue is widespread and nobody can see, Il note that I have attached 3 images showing the issue.

Can someone please check this comment I made and let me know if you see the inline image?

I had posted this a few months and it's still the same issue.

If I search for a community using sync it only shows around 6-7. And that is also in the explore bar, it doesn't do the search in the dedicated search page.

Am I doing something wrong or is this still the case?

As the title asks, is it possible to migrate the settings for an account to a new phone? Would hate to have to set it up again..

I think a lot of people forget to check where they are before replying to things (me especially). Serious replies show up in shitposts and are then apologized for, joke comments are made in communities that are more serious, etc.

I was thinking it'd be nice to have the option to make me click through a confirmation of the community I'm in before crafting a data-driven response to something in an askmelolz group.

Bonus points for making it big and colorful :D

Sync grabs images using an option for max length of 1500px, so the super long images are just a smattering of pixels that barely represent the original image.

I can't find a way in the app to get a better quality version. I end up opening a web browser to view.

Edit: I'm pretty sure that I made a mistake here, in that I tried to use my main credentials to sign in and transfer, but I actually bought the lifetime on a different account. The likelihood that I confused myself with my paranoia is likely high.

Can't see comment replies (self.syncforlemmy)
submitted 3 weeks ago by victorz to c/syncforlemmy

Hey all. I'm having this issue where a bunch of content replies disappear on me. Or, rather, they are in my inbox, but when I click them to go reply and vote on them in the comments of the post where they are, they are completely missing from the thread/conversation. So to make it clear, they never disappear from my inbox, but they just can't be seen in the comments section itself, under the associated post.

Is this a bug or expected behavior?

Thanks for any help.

Links that open natively in Sync (like news articles) are often riddled with ads. Is there any way for the Sync shell to open through a Firefox based browser, which includes native ad block?

I'm not sure if this is related to what browsers I have on my phone. I do have one chromium based browser (kiwi) installed, and if getting rid of that would fix the problem I could look into deleting it and leaving only FF on my phone. But I'm not sure if it's related.

When Samsung last updated One UI several months ago, myself and many other Samsung users (and Pixel users on Android 14 as well, judging by the replies) encountered a bug where swiping posts closed showed only a black background until fully closed, after which the content one would expect to see would appear.

Last night, One UI updated to 6.1 on my device, and when I used Sync this morning, I noticed that the black background bug is no longer happening.

!Unfortunately I now need to re-learn my navigation gestures because Samsung apparently thinks it's fine to force people to completely re-learn how they navigate their phone overnight...!<

I've added some instances to the instance filters, yet I continue seeing those instances. Is there something else that I need to do to block entire instances?

I'm seeing within Sync a number of users have profile pics that show up on their posts. Is there a way in Sync to set that?

I am trying to block all posts that are links to YouTube on my feed. I tried domain filtering for all 4 of the domains that the YouTube app auto opens. But I still see YouTube link posts. I tried logging out and back in, no luck. Anyone know?
