Pixelfed Not Federating



  • @doodlemania2 I was able to see you in mastadon and pixelfed! Anyone have a peertube instance I can test? Also, how can I test Element chat federation?

    Thanks guys!



  • That's great @will ! I think we'll have GNU-Social too fairly soon as it's marked #wip



  • @will yes I'm testing one here : tube.okcinfo.news



  • @scooke can't you remote follow them from your instance ?
    I agree with the other comment, you can't use Pixelfed as a full blown actor in the fediverse, you can follow other users in your pixelfed instance but any user outside of your instance is a remote follower you can follow from your mastodon account but not from pixelfed.
    on the other end, anyone using an activitypub enabled system can follow a pixelfed user.



  • @will I have the same issue.
    There is not a single error in my horizon dashboard, it's active & green, following your own pixelfed user from your mastodon instance work just fine but if you search a profile from another PIXELFED instance anywhere in the fediverse there is no search results

    If you look to your own mastodon or any other identity there is no issue :

    it can't neither see a peertube profile.



  • regarding no errors in Horizon :

    There does not seem to be any jobs running, maybe that's why ?

    no jobs no failed jobs ?

    My experience is that the app is smooth and fast both on desktop and mobile
    I have no idea what's going on but when I search admin@pixelfed.social
    in the logs trail you can catch this :

    Jul 29 17:54:25 172.18.0.1 - - [29/Jul/2020:15:54:25 +0000] "GET /api/search?q=admin@pixelfed.social&src=metro&v=1&scope=profile HTTP/1.1" 200 992 "https://pixel.rmendes.net/i/results?q=admin%40pixelfed.social" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0"

    this "verify_credentials" might be where the problem is ?



  • @rmdes I followed somebody outside my instance.



  • I wonder if this is a Pixelfed issue, not a Cloudron issue? It seems some types of follows work, others not so much. Thoughts?



  • @will Do you mean another pixelfed user or another user from another activitypub enabled service (mastodon, pleroma etc..)



  • @rmdes I can't see other users on PixelFed, like browsing their pages.
