The path is /lemmy/volumes/lemmy-ui/extra_themes (if it doesnt exist, create it).


Try docker-compose exec lemmy-ui sh, the container might not have bash. Also, any changes made this way will be gone after restart.



Lemmy only mirrors text, which takes almost no space at all. What does take a lot of space is media, so mirroring that can fill up your disk really fast. Inthat case, it is necessary to delete old, cached media which can easily be automated.


I think this makes a lot of sense for the local and federated feeds. In fact i opened a very similar issue recently, but only regarding posts from communities. It should be pretty easy to implement the same logic for users as well.


Sure, following hashtags can be done locally on an instance, but its not possible over the activitypub protocol. So it only makes sense if you follow users, and then show their posts with a hashtag as a kind of local search.


There is no previous work on Peertube compatibility, it just happens to use Groups for its channels, which Lemmy also uses for communities. Lemmy cant handle videos, but i might look into that.


Subscribing to hashtags doesnt really make sense. Activitypub groups (which Lemmy uses for communities) work by following an actor, and it then sends all new items to the follower. On the contrary, hashtags are displayed simply by taking all locally known posts which contain that hashtag. There is no way to follow anyone to get all new items for that hashtag, and no way to have moderators or a description for the hashtag, like we have for communities. Its just a very simple and primitive implementation that doesnt work with the data structures that Lemmy uses.




This is a problem with Mastodon, as i described here. It also existed in the initial Lemmy release, but back then you generally replied to comments from lemmy.ml users in lemmy.ml communities, so everything looked fine.


Did you install manually? Then you need to ensure that the ports for lemmy and lemmy-ui are set correctly in nginx config. You also need to apply changes with nginx -s reload



Go to the original instance where the community is hosted, it has the total subscriber count. Or use command line: curl -H 'Accept: application/activity+json' https://lemmy.ml/c/lemmy_support/followers | jq .totalItems


Wow i had no idea. Looks like it could easily take a day to install with all those steps.



Ubuntu even installs the snap service on servers which makes no sense for me.


You are right, Lemmy only supports Group, Person and Service (same as Person, but marked as bot). Does a Friendica Organization work in the same way as a Person?



Can you tell me how to find the id of the create activity for these notes? Then i can check the server logs for errors.

By the way, i noticed that Friendica publicly lists all the users who liked or disliked a post. That is supposed to be private in Lemmy (only used to calculate the score).


Free hosting for liberal/mainstream political instance

Lemmy.ml has long had some political conflict among the userbase, especially in communities like worldnews. This is because the instance is composed of both leftists (anarchist/communist) and liberals (those who agree with the mainstream political views in western countries). Additionally, the insta…

Lemmy 0.15.4 released

We just released a new patch which fixes an important federation problem. Due to a mistake in the code, activities were only sent out once, even if delivery failed (e.g. because the target instance is down, or a temporary connection issue). Instance admins should definitely upgrade. …

Signups for weblate.yerbamate.ml are working again

The domain was included in a spam list, which meant that confirmation emails couldnt be delivered, and signup was impossible. Now the problem is fixed, so if you would like to translate Lemmy into your language, register an account and get started. …

Promoting Lemmy

I think most of us agree that the main problem which Lemmy has today is its lack of users. This is not for technical reasons, as we know it is quite stable and usable. The main cause is that the project is not widely known yet. In this post I will propose what we can do to change that. …

How can we make Lemmy easier for new users?

I’m curious to hear if you have any thoughts or ideas about this. As a developer I understand very well how Lemmy works, and cant tell at all what might be difficult or confusing…
