Since our last release earlier this month, we’ve had ~30 commits to Lemmy.

Major Changes

  • Added comment and post reporting in the front end, and cleaned up the reporting API.
    • Note: these are local-only currently, reports are not yet federated.
  • The JWT secret is now auto-generated by the database.
    • Note: this will log out all users, so users will have to log in again.
  • Lots of smaller UI fixes listed below.

When they load the comment in a browser tab, they just see that.

They has no account or anything.

Lemmy just keep loading and send that message.

They need to open an issue, I don’t have enough info.

The theme (darkly or the web browser one) are not respected), and web looks horribly white, :(

Had to use “dark reader” extension… I’m using librewolf 92.01, but this hadn’t happened before, :(

2 ways to change it:

  • Use a browser that supports dark mode, and make sure your theme in your user settings is Browser Default (which it should be by default.
  • Manually change your theme in settings to darkly.

I think I found the issue. Only darkly is working for me, and I have to refresh or course… Somehow LibreWolf (Firefox derivative) with default dark theme, is not picked by Lemmy. I’m using materia dark theme on the system, and it’s what LibreWolf is picking… So, that’s what’s not working. Darkly does it though…

It might be it was that way before BTW, and the confusion about reloading once, with darkly, unsuccessfully got me confused, :)

The prefers color scheme that browsers have now, only has light and dark mode currently.

I had to reload the page once, but then it worked.

It was sort of weird, I did that on the the front page and seemed to work, then move to my subscriptions and stopped working. Same when moving to settings to review, and going back to front page, etc… It seems to be working now though… Hopefully I just keep reloading when losing the theme again, and that’ll be it, :) Thanks !

Does this mean the JWT config option is deprecated then?

Yes you can just remove it from the config after upgrading.

Yes, I logged in on mobile using Fennec F-Droid.

My session was logged off in the beginnig as you explained there.

Edited:

Just to test I relogged in again and the issue is maintained.

I’d need to see console logs, there’s no other way I could figure out the error. In your screenshot you have no post title, and that’s required (and it should tell you that).

@Echedenyan

It is suggested from the link I put in the URL. The version before didn’t require me to do that if was suggested if I remember correctly, but anyways it is right that even these things are not told.

I will try double-window to check log with other app.
