i highlighted the three dot button you need to press:


Choose an user of your instance

that’s the key, they have to be a member of your instance.


there should be a “NSFW” checkbox when creating a post? is that what you’re looking for? it might be different depending if you’re using an app or the regular web interface.


  1. Hack drones
  2. Show porn
  3. ???
  4. Profit!

oops i should be promoting communities on my own instance i suppose!



this is the correct link: https://beehaw.org/c/linuxhumor@lemmy.ml

and it shows that it has 0 subscribers from beehaw, so that’s why you won’t see any posts in your feed. it needs at least 1 subscriber from your instance, then it should federate properly.


also, sometimes it takes a bit for the community to “sync” as well. but again, it might be a different issue too, i don’t know for sure.


I have noticed this too on our instance as well. I had one user fix the issue by unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the community, then it started federating properly.


it looks like from the error message that you maybe don’t have the correct amount of whitespace. here’s a snippet of mine:

services:
  lemmy:
    image: dessalines/lemmy:0.16.6
    ports:
      - "127.0.0.1:8536:8536"
      - "127.0.0.1:6669:6669"
    restart: always
    environment:
      - RUST_LOG="warn,lemmy_server=info,lemmy_api=info,lemmy_api_common=info,lemmy_api_crud=info,lemmy_apub=info,lemmy_db_schema=info,lemmy_db_views=info,lemmy_db_views_actor=info,lemmy_db_views_moderator=info,lemmy_routes=info,lemmy_utils=info,lemmy_websocket=info"
    volumes:
      - ./lemmy.hjson:/config/config.hjson
    depends_on:
      - postgres
      - pictrs
    logging:
      options:
        max-size: "20m"
        max-file: "5"

i also added the 4 logging lines for each service listed in my docker-compose.yml file. hope this helps!


it’s just a change to the docker-compose.yml file. so depending on how your instance is setup (using ansible or docker-compose), you could just make the change yourself.


i believe that’s just a regular docker log file. i don’t think by default that docker shrinks their log files, so it’s probably everything since you started your instance.

i’m just guessing though.


there’s still 2 or 3 of us lemmy.ca users who are occasionally active, haha. I just lurk most of the time.



I would guess it’s a federation issue maybe? maybe if a down vote doesn’t federate for whatever reason but the user decided to un-down vote and that does federate? I dunno, just a guess.


100% agreed. I use it every day. I do understand his frustration though.


same here. i think it was either reddit or hacker news where i read about it. i think i first created an account on lemmy.ml, then lemmy.ca, and now i’m running lemmy.ca!


i believe they typically run as a service on a computer, monitoring the subreddit via the reddit api, the when it finds new stuff, it posts it onto lemmy.


I think their doc’s are decent? and I could be wrong, and maybe it depends on the Linux distribution, but I’m just not 100% sure if it actually does anything without some basic configuration.


to be clear, the only way to access ssh is by connecting through the VPN? yeah, it should be fine, as long as your vpn is secure.
