[bug] Can't see images on nearly 1/3 of posts
  • Hi there!

    So, I've investigated this problem many times, and in the case of your example post its the same issue I've seen before.

    On your instance (mander.xyz), the image is not available. As an example, try to load the following link (in your browser):

    https://mander.xyz/post/15080092 (MUST OPEN IN BROWSER)

    As you can see the image is broken, because the image is not cached on mander.xyz, and also the original link is broken.

    However, when you tap the "link" button in Voyager you are viewing the post on feddit.org where the image is cached. That's why this works:

    https://feddit.org/post/538582 (MUST OPEN IN BROWSER)

    This also explains why the image works for some people and not others. Because at some point the original image link broke, and some instances had the image cached by then, but not others.

    That's also why usually the image will work on the origin server (in this case, feddit.org). Because the image was originally posted there, and that server was the first one to cache it (before the origin image broke).

    I've thought about some workarounds for this scenario. Voyager could theoretically request the post payload from the origin lemmy instance (AP URL) and then use that cached image URL. However, this reduces privacy somewhat because your lemmy app is now connecting to an arbitrary lemmy instance.

    Maybe it will be a setting in the future.

    As others said, other apps are also affected by this issue because it's not a Voyager specific issue.

    Another side note, this could potentially be fixed in Lemmy backend. Lemmy devs could fetch the cached image from the upstream Lemmy server instead of using the original image URL, if it is broken.

    Edit: I made a request in Lemmy issue tracker. https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/4899

  • How to annoy a Voyager user:
  • (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

  • Federation issues since vger.social upgraded to 0.19.4
  • Hey, sorry I just noticed this (feel free to tag me next time).

    Are you still experiencing federation issues?

  • [Bug] Feed blur settings no longer per account
  • It should be working. Have you tried restarting your phone?

  • Eat it
  • Yep that makes sense. I am more thinking about VFR flight in the context of ultralights. So let me rephrase- in the context of ultralights (VFR) the vast majority of US airspace does not require talking to ATC or even having a radio onboard.

  • Eat it
  • I'm an unlicensed ultralight pilot and I know where I can and cannot fly. Every ultralight pilot I know also knows where to fly (and how to read a sectional).

  • Eat it
    Eat it
  • Sure but the vast majority of US airspace is uncontrolled.

  • Unread replies don't change color after Mark All Read
  • Thanks, I can confirm

    Edit: should be fixed next version!

  • Cursed wretched marketing
  • Try restarting your app. That can happen if an API request fails (or if you Lemmy instance isn’t federated with the target instance)

  • Crossposts Do Not Display Post Text From Original Post
  • You can disable embedding cross posts in settings to get to the original Lemmy implementation if you prefer.

  • Is there any way to avoid having to see a mod removing a single user from 20 different communities in the modlog?
  • I would like to add filter by action/mod eventually but not yet implemented. There might be a request on GitHub, if not already that would be a good place to start.

  • Feature Request: Import / Export User Preferences
  • You can do that (Voyager preferences only, not ones that are synced to your Lemmy account). Helpful if you reinstall the app for example. Settings general scroll to bottom then backup/restore!

  • [Possible bug] Sharing a post to Firefox makes Voyager into Firefox, and I can't get back!
  • Is this from the native app or PWA? Can you do a screen recording? Ty!

  • I think this is an aww.
  • More nudibranch content please

  • When will the Android view be removed from the beta phase?
  • Ideally when Ionic supports the new material UI. Then I can invest a lot of time into cleaning up all the pages and making things look nice like iOS. :)

    It is hard for me to want to invest a lot of time polishing an already outdated material UI version.

  • Cant open "more replies"
  • Either you blocked someone, or your language settings are incorrect. Lemmy’s language settings really suck.

  • Drones trespassing in my property
  • you own the airspace up to the highest point of your property

    Nope. Part 103 pilots often fly inches off the ground and it’s totally legal- usually farm fields. This is called class G airspace and extends from surface to 700 or 1200 ft AGL. The United States government has exclusive sovereignty of airspace in the US from the surface up, and any citizen has the right of transit through that airspace.

  • [SPOILER] Appears on NXT (June 18, 2024)
  • This looks like a bug, can you report it on GitHub?

    Introducing vger.social: A lemmy instance for Voyager supporters 💙

    Hey there! Voyager for Lemmy dev here.

    As I've been adding more mod and admin feature to Voyager, I've realized that self-hosting my own Lemmy instance may help me improve Lemmy moderation and administration in Voyager.

    But I had another thought: Why not open up registration to Voyager supporters? It's a win-win: I get more real-world experience administrating a Lemmy instance, and Voyager supporters get a fun additional benefit!

    Introducing https://vger.social :)

    Q&A

    • Q: Who can sign up? A: Those who donate any amount on a monthly basis, or those who have contributed a few PRs to Voyager
    • Q: How do you track donations? A: It's the honor system.
    • Q: Will Voyager keep support for other Lemmy instances? A: Of course! Nothing is changing there, vger.social is just another Lemmy instance.
    • Q: Will vger.social work with other Lemmy apps? A: Absolutely! It's just a vanilla Lemmy instance.

    Why use vger.social

    • Guaranteed compatibility with Voyager
    • Low user count = snag a better username
    • It's well-federated, including https://lemmy.dbzer0.com/c/piracy
    • General purpose instance hosted on US East Coast (potentially a pro or con for you, but faster response times for users in USA than lemmy.world)
    • Rules against bigotry, hate and harassment (see sidebar)
    • Hopefully better stability against any future influx of Lemmy users, compared to larger Lemmy instances
    • Star Trek fans welcome I guess lol

    Quick disclaimer

    While I hope this instance is around for the long run, it is new, and therefore still experimental. If vger.social does shut down, I will give everyone at least 60 days notice.
