"Failed to retrieve Redgif video" error
  • Hi! This should now be fixed on Connect ver180(beta) as of today

  • sometimes when I click on a post that is an image, I see the image briefly then it dissappear and this replaces it
  • Could you link me to a post where this is happening? I'll take a look. As others have said it probably is the thumbnail resolving but the full image failing.

  • Amoled Background Error
  • Thanks for the report and I'm taking a look! I updated some core libraries last release so I suspect it's related.

  • bready community shows /c/all
  • Thanks for the page - taking a look

  • redgifs problem
  • Hi! Are you still seeing load issues on v177? I can take a look.

  • opening notifications from inbox
  • Thanks for the feedback! I'm going to look into this now.

  • unable to scroll
  • Hi! Is that on ver 176?

  • Upvotes gone after returning from comments
  • This is now fixed as of beta ver 176

  • App freeze and no content when scrolling through list of posts
  • This should now be resolved on ver 176.

  • App freeze and no content when scrolling through list of posts
  • Thanks, looking into the issue now!

  • Upvotes gone after returning from comments
  • Hi, thanks for the feedback and I'll take a look. Yeah as the other commenter said I believe this is just a caching issue and the post card isn't getting updated.

  • Development timeline/roadmap?
  • I dont really have a specific roadmap per se, I know I want to add import/export functionality next and then mod support afterwards. I'm kind of thinking about adding iOS support but not sure if that is something people want.

    Beyond those items I'm mostly listening to community feedback and adding in things where they make sense.

    I'll look at those two posts you linked. Cheers!

  • cache
  • Caching should be a bit improved on 1.0.174. Right now things live in the cache for 14 days before they're removed.

  • [ISSUE] Access to my edited comments, access to comments when the parent was removed
  • Hi, thanks for the feedback! I'll take a look into this issue for the next release.

  • [Resolved] Is this a limitation of Lemmy, or of the app?
  • Thanks for the link! This should now be fixed on ver 173.

  • gifs loading forever?
  • Could you link an example of a video that doesn't load? I can see what I can do.

  • [Resolved] Is this a limitation of Lemmy, or of the app?
  • There should be a join link on the store listing page

  • [Resolved] Is this a limitation of Lemmy, or of the app?
  • I'm going to try a small modification in the beta tonight, please let me know your thoughts. The comment actions will now always span the full width and instead of tons of comment lines it will be a bit cleaner.

  • [Resolved] Is this a limitation of Lemmy, or of the app?
  • How do the other apps handle this? I think I can add in handling for this easily enough, I just haven't seen it before.

  • Connect 1.0.171 Released
  • Probably in the next 2-3 releases. It's next on my list after import/export settings.

    Connect 1.0.131 Released

    Hi, I wanted to get more into theme and customization improvements but a lot of great feature requests came up and I ended up just implementing those instead. I might need a better system to compile release notes soon as in the past week there have been 11 beta releases and it's a bit tedious to go through each to compile the final release notes. Probably the biggest change in this release is the way back navigation works, hopefully it's now in a state that is more intuitive instead of back activating the drawer menu.

    Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to provide feedback and suggestions, even if I haven't had the time to respond I've read them all. It's really appreciated!

    Also Connect turns 2 months old on Tuesday. Kind of crazy how quickly that went and how much the app has changed in that short amount of time. Thank you again to everyone that has stuck with me these past 2 months, Connect is as much your app as it is mine.

    Changes

    • Changed back button behaviour and a swipe gesture to show the menu.

    • [Post card] Changed the comment icon to go to comments and added an optional 'reply' icon which preserves the older behaviour

    • Changing sort order in list views no longer changes your sort order setting
    • Long pressing a setting will now copy its name

    • Added undo for the 'Hide Above' action
    • Removed a small fade in for images so they now load immediately
    • Added 'Subscribe' to the post action menu
    • Added setting for sticky bottom bars or hiding on scroll
    • Fixed an issue with the 'Saved' page now combining posts and comments correctly
    • Added experimental option to remember scroll position in comment lists
    • Added setting to hide markdown images
    • Added "copy article url" to post action menu
    • Added volume controls to video and saving so changes persist to future videos

    • Improved 'Experimental post swipe navigation' to include a swipe to previous and if swipe gestures are turned off the entire page is a swipe target

    Connect 1.0.73 Released

    Hi, only bug fixes in this release as the feature I'm working on isn't quite ready yet and I had to set up a local instance of Lemmy for testing purposes without spamming a live instance. Hopefully this means more testing from my side going forward and more app stability. For thumbnails I'm now loading in better compressed images so you should see memory and network improvements, especially on list views where I also scale the thumbnail to the size of the list card, 1MB images are now 10KB in my testing. I changed the upvote colour to more of an orangey colour. It matches the app icon orange now. If you have the setting to open links in a external browser it no longer applies to opening images.

    What's new

    • Upvote colour is now orange
    • Thumbnails are now more efficient (especially list views)
    • Images no longer open in external browser
    • Communities will now respect the 'Should Launch Externally' setting on open

    Fixes

    • Comment hint text ('Comment') now matches your theme settings
    • Comment textbox is now autofocused so no extra click needed
    • Improved the text visibility of the Notificiation icon number
    • List view images are now aligned to the top and not the center
    • Fixed a minor left padding issue on List view body text
    • Adjusted the text for 'Show Post Bottom bar' to better reflect what it does
    • Fixed a bug with Subscribe/Unsubscribe not showing correct values in the top right action menu
    • Fixed the error message when unable to find a person
    • Fixed copy url action item for web views

    Thank you so much for all of your feedback! A bottom nav drawer seems like the most requested feature currently so please look forward to that! It will have an option to disable for those that don't prefer it.

    • Added some improvements to the profile page. Tabs for overall/posts/comments and a page header

    • Added some haptic feedback for swipe actions

    Bugfixes

    • Fixed comment cards in the reply view are no longer clickable
    • Fixed a three dot menu being invisible (web)
    • Fixed some routing issues when creating a comment or editting a comment. Instead of the previous state being in history it should now show only the state after the change.

    Also please let me know what you think of the colour palettes I've chosen for the comment lines. If you're thinking of one that would be cool I'm happy to add it in :)

    Connect 1.0.57 Released

    Hi, thanks for all the great feedback on the last release. This release brings hide post functionality and improvements to the about instance page.

    We also hit 20k active users! That's an amazing milestone for only being live for about 2 weeks. I'm going to be working on a 'New to Lemmy' onboarding page as Connect is often the first place for new users. Also customization for swipe actions is high on my list to do.

    What's new

    • Smoother swipe navigation on certain pages
    • Fixed typo in Settings page (Affects -> Effects)
    • Made scrolling up smoother in full width view
    • Added ability to hide posts (it's both the last swipe action and on the hamburger menu)
    • Added a list of communities to the instance about pages
    • Added user avatar to the drawer header
    • Vibrate on comment collapse/uncollapse

    Bugfixes

    • Fixed a bug with getting next page is the entire first page is filtered
    • Fixed a bug for users with >100 subscriptions
    • Fixed a bug with sort values not taking effect -Changed the app name on the homescreen to just 'Connect'
    • Added a notification outside of drawer
    • Fixed a bug where sometimes comment replies wouldn't show the comment being replied to
    • Addressing some logo feedback, I've removed the outer white ring

    edit: 1.0.58 hotfix is waiting on Google Play approval now which fixes a couldnt_load_comment bug.

    Connect 1.0.55 Released

    Hi, no update yesterday as I was out of town but now we're back to the usual release cadence. This release brings an image uploader to comments (and other places), swipe to go back navigation, a new icon, and more.

    Changelog

    • Added ability to attach images to comments/the post body
    • Added swipe to go back navigation
    • Switching users should now refresh the drawer correctly
    • Improved image caching, things should feel snappier now
    • Added option to force links to open in external browser
    • Added option to enable/disable swipe navigation
    • Fixed an issue with pinch to zoom images, preventing accidental closes when trying to zoom in
    • Added subscriber count when searching communities
    • Community search results are now ordered by subscriber counts
    • Removed a border between comments now that we have dividers, the goal was to break up comments a bit visually but the border isn't needed if we have dividers.
    • Added a new icon (credit to @[email protected] for designing it)

    I'm looking into a issue with using 'hide read posts' where if the entire first page is read it won't load the second page.
