Does lemmy get crawled by search engines?
Whenever I want to find useful information on something i search the thing and add "reddit" to the end of my search. I would love to be able to do that with lemmy but currently it seems like nothing on lemmy gets picked up by google.

Not all comments show up when browsing a community from my beehaw account
Subs on don’t show the same comments when I’m browsing it through my Beehaw account. Most posts have no comments at all (and 0 upvotes too), but I can go straight to in another tab and see that there are in fact discussions going on in the comments. This problem doesn’t affect all of the posts. Some are normally populated. Also I checked that it has nothing to do with lemmygrad being defederated or blocked from Beehaw, the comments which are not showing can be from various instances. How can I troubleshoot that ?

I need help changing my Lemmygrad password (I apologize in advance if this is the wrong community to ask this question in)
cross-posted from: > I have my new password, and the "verify password thing" (I think that that's for copying the NEW password, but correct me if I'm wrong), and then I entered in my old password into the old password input thing. But when I enter these, it says "Invalid password, password must be <= 60 characters". What does this mean and how can I fix it? Thanks in advance

Minor issue: "404: FetchError: invalid json response body at http://lemmy:8536/api/v3/site"
It has resolved itself but I saw someone else had the same issue (on the Beehaw Discord), so I thought it may happen again. I hope this helps in diagnosing the problem. Between about 9:40 AM Eastern and 9:44 AM on 2022-08-15, I got the message on the page tried to open and the main page of > 404: FetchError: invalid json response body at http://lemmy:8536/api/v3/site I don’t think it was a browser or extension problem since I was able to view Beehaw on my phone just fine but here’s the info just in case. I primarily use Firefox on desktop (Windows 10), but I immediately tried a private Firefox tab and both Edge and Chrome (no extensions). The private tab, Edge, and Chrome said: > 404: FetchError: invalid json response body at http://lemmy:8536/api/v3/site? reason: Unexpected end of JSON input I use an Android phone and Beehaw was fine on both Firefox and Bromite using my phone’s data/not wifi. I was signed in to my Beehaw account on the desktop Firefox but not on any of the other browsers.

Issue with syncing Comments of a Comment
Hi, I have a weird behaviour of Syncing Comments. According to the [Troubleshoot]( section for testing synchronisation, it should be possible to retrieve comments via: `curl -H "Accept: application/activity+json" # the id of a local comment` That works for Comments which are **direct** responses to a post, e.g. The response (shortcut url: can be successfully retrieved via: `curl -H "Accept: application/activity+json"` **But** The Answer Comment to that Comment: (Shortcut url: **can not be retrieved** via : `curl -H "Accept: application/activity+json"` This leads to the issue that these Comments are not synced to **my** instance Is it a known issue? Can I do anything to get Response Comments to Comments Synced to my instance? Thanks in advance Jonny

404 Fetch Error - Environment Variables
Hi, 1 - I previously forked lemmy-ui, to help expand it (at version 0.15.3). 2 - This week, I merged upstream changes from the official lemmy-ui (version 0.16.7). 3 - Now I’m getting this error when visiting the live site: > `404: FetchError: request to 404: FetchError: request to failed, reason: ECONNREFUSED` > ^ That URL is derived from `const testHost = "";` in *env.ts* [confirmed by changing the string value] ** ****POSSIBLE CAUSE and QUESTION**** Perhaps this error can be solved by using the new UI Environment Variables. If so, where do we input those new UI Environment Variables? > [so far I’ve tried adding them as a new .env file, adding them to docker-compose.yml, and adding them to docker-image.yml via github-actions] ** ****MORE INFO**** These are the new UI Env Variables I'm referencing (from the new Lemmy-UI [ReadMe]( - LEMMY_UI_LEMMY_INTERNAL_HOST - LEMMY_UI_LEMMY_EXTERNAL_HOST - LEMMY_UI_LEMMY_WS_HOST They are consumed by *env.ts*. For example, at line 30: `externalHost = process.env.LEMMY_UI_LEMMY_EXTERNAL_HOST || testHost;` > ^ the Env_Var will replace the `testHost` default. ** Thank you for reading. I will attempt any ideas. [Here are my Docker logs for reference]( (starting at server reboot). Running: Lemmy 16.6

[RESOLVED] Our Beehaw instance is experiencing a problem that we can't identify
Over just 14 days our physical disk usage has increased from 52% to 59%. That's approximately 1.75 GB of disk space being gobbled up for unknown reasons. At that rate, we'd be out of physical server space in 2 -3 months. Of course, one solution would be to double our server disk size which would double our monthly operating cost. The 'pictrs' folder named '001' is 132MB and the one named '002' is 2.2GB. At first glance this doesn't look like it's an image problem. So, we are stumped and don't know what to do.

I finished the hungarian translation of Lemmy
Hello, I finished the hungarian translation on Lemmy Weblate page: []( One of Dev can put back the hungarian language in Lemmy? Thanks. I will correct the strings if something is not accurate on the frontend.

Where is Lemmy UI files on server?
Maybe it's a dumb question, but sorry, I'm not a dev, I just play and learn with Lemmy on my vps in my free time. Can I ask where can I find Lemmy ui files after Docker install?

Hosting lemmy with Caddy v2 and Docker
Hello, I want to host my own lemmy instance but instead of using Nginx as a reverse proxy I want to use Caddy as a reverse proxy since it is easier. Sadly I am still learning how to use it and lemmy is putting me in hard position. Does anybody know how can I do it? Thanks in advance! ::: spoiler spoiler Edit: I have around $1,30 in Monero (at least it was that much a week or two before) if any helps me I am going to give it to him. :::

How do I delete a picture?
After uploading a picture there is a popup that lets you delete the picture. But after that is gone I don't know how to do it.

Bad UX for replies
Sometimes when you hit reply, it doesn't save. Then you go on to do other things and everything you wrote is lost. Sometimes you have to hit reply 2,3 or even more times for it to actually do it. This is complete insanity and bad UX.

Is there a way to audit activity on small instances / to get notified of reports of local users?
I just noticed that my instance is on the block list for, which explains why I haven't been seeing any updated posts for about a month. As far as I know I haven't noticed any bad behavior in the couple default communities I created there, but there doesn't seem to be a way to check up on local user's activity elsewhere - I assume the block has to do with someone signing up and trolling, but I'm not sure how to stay in the loop so I can take action before getting blocked by other instances. Is there any way to get better visibility into this or get alerted when local users are creating reports / bans / problems for other instances?

Blocked users
I blocked a spam user but they still show up in my inbox. Update: a blocked user's direct message notification was not removed from my inbox. Comments were, so presumably this is a bug.

Is there a 100% reliable way of linking to a single comment? The GUI links behave in unexpected ways
Hi, I need to be able to open a single comment on top of the window, like a permalink (I'm creating a hypertext game on lemmy), but the two link methods available in the GUI doesn't behave like they should. * The first "link" button doesn't act like a permalink at all when there are nested comments above it, I don't know why (on Firefox 91.10.0es), but sometimes it just shows some nested comments above instead of the actual comment itself * The second "link" button just end on a 404 page. How is this one supposed to work ? So I was wondering if there is another way of displaying only a single comment by its id, but looking at the HTML dom it doesn't seem like comments have unique ids ? Hope someone can answer :) ----- **Edit** : I checked in another browser, still the same issue. Also this problem is happening with non-nested comments too, the first link to a comment is not reliable and shows random content on the page, but this seems to be happening only when the comments count begins to be high under a post (more than twenty or so? cannot say exactly)

[Solved] User name and community name clash caused federation issues
I am commenting with my []( account on Then from several weird behavior: - Searching on doesn't find anything. - Searching on @fediversefutures doesn't find anything (though search on does) - When opening @fediversefutures profile in the timeline, I do not see my []( comments. - But I do see comments from other accounts replying to the same post. - When I click such reply, the thread loads minus my own replies, and minus my top-level post, which isn't in the timeline for @fediversefutures either when viewing from Mastodon UI (using my []( account). **Update** Thanks to some great help of []( in [this toot]( I found out that my account was broken, because someone had later on created a community with the same name. There are open issues to handle such cases: - - Since the community was inactive LemmyDev deleted it, and my account works again

By the way I use the Installation Guide for [Docker]( and already dropped the old db/pictrs data and re-created my instance with blank data folders. But the errors stay the same. Thanks in advance :)

Keyboard Shortcuts
Is there any hope of getting keyboard shortcuts? If nothing else ctrl+enter is strange to do without.
