    so there's no way to have authentication required and still be able to share a document publicly without having the viewer to sign in?

    So the settings.json shown in the admin UI is the wrong place to make changes. It will get reset on ever app restart.

    To make that clear, I pushed a new app package, which disables the admin UI bit to edit the settings.json within the app.

    @sparkwise alright, the new package does not enforce ep_padlist2 still when updating it has to be manually removed if it was already installed.

    @humptydumpty said in Plugin for automatic delete:

    @robi You beat me to it.

    Screenshot 2022-11-11 172507.png

    Hi, plugin installation works, but the code

    "ep_delete_after_delay": { "delay": 86400, // one day, in seconds "loop": true, "loopDelay": 3600, // one hour, in seconds "deleteAtStart": true, "text": "The content of this pad has been deleted since it was older than the configured delay." },

    don't work after putting in settings.json and restart app.
    I think a text should be displayed at a new pad, or? In my case there is no text...

    Etherpad stores the documents and its data in the mysql database on your VPS. While editing, the clients sync their changes mostly real-time to the server.

    I am not fully sure what happens if you are offline and edits cannot be submitted to the server, for some time, then later the client gets online again, while the document already has changed by other clients on the server. Essentially for such more complex conflict resolutions, you have to ask upstream or see what their docs have to say about this.

    @nebulon may not be worth digging into it. I removed the broken app.

    @chetbaker we receive bounce emails when contacting you via support. Not sure if your mailboxes are working correctly. However to give an update here on the issue, it seems there is a session bug within etherpad. To clear that up, please visit manually https://pad.example.com/ep_cloudron/logout with your main browser and then attempt a relogin.

    @chymian-0 We saw the exact same problem with @robi's instance. Essentially, one of the plugins was preventing the startup. After the log line "Your Etherpad version is 1.8.12", one is supposed to see "http server listening" or something like that. I recommend "npm rm" on each of the plugins as suggested in https://docs.cloudron.io/apps/etherpad/#troubleshooting to debug which plugin causes this issue. Unfortunately, this is the life with plugins in etherpad, they keep breaking between releases 😞

    I will mark this as "solved" since etherpad in the Cloudron incarnation would not support this as is.

    Since I just looked into this, the errors (or rather warnings) from npm are for one thing, that etherpad does not have a package.json file in the root folder, but relies on the node_modules folder for listing. Also npm by default attempts to check for update of itself, which fails and it should not update on its own, since we only test against specific versions.

    The vulnerabilities are indeed an issue, however as @girish mentioned we cannot blindly update them, so all those have to be ideally reported upstream with all the relevant plugins even.

    it works fine,

    sorry @girish I should have read the Etherpad Cloudron app doc and also the Ownpad one, because I have to enable the detection of pad mimetype by NextCloud https://github.com/otetard/ownpad/#mimetype-detection.

    In the terminal, I copied /app/code/resources/config/mimetypemapping.dist.json to /app/data/config/mimetypemapping.json

    and then I added in this file pad'': ["application/x-ownpad"],

    we could add this information to the Cloudron documentation of the NextCloud app, next time I'll read it 😉
