I'm just entering today to work and I noticed some changes, but now that I read this publication I see that they are quite a few changes!

I congratulate the work that is dedicated to achieve a better platform every day.

Any issues you notice, you can open github tickets and provide a way to replicate the problem if possible. If its something that can be replicated by the user, I can surely help.

Hello, I have no problem, I apologize if my wording has been confusing and you have given the wrong idea. What I'm trying to do is congratulate on the changes and acknowledge the improvements that have been made.

No worries 😉 served the purpose of the shout anyhow. Great then!

Wow, nice work and updates! Thanks for giving us so much improvement!

I am using Ecency on a smartphone (Samsung Galaxy A12, Android 10), and some people told me that some of my uploaded photos are not appearing on other Hive frontends (Hive, PeakD).

What (kind of bug) could cause this?

Are you using Ecency web app on your phone or mobile app?

The mobile app. But currently everything seems to be fine. Except the visibility of the covers/thumbnails of my Actifit report cards.

Could you give examples of such posts? We know if image size is bigger than 10MB, doesn't accept it and other frontends using that imagehoster instance won't be able to display, maybe that's the issue. But if you give examples, we can check and learn more.

Now I checked my latest posts and comments, and currently everything seems to be properly appearing, except for the covers/thumbnails of my Actifit report cards on, but even those photos are appearing properly, if I click on the posts. Interesting. And none of my recent photos are above 10 MB.

If you can open you photos on a normal browser it will be woking fine.

Way to go, Team Ecency!
The sky is the limit!🚀

@ecency it's actually sad to see that I have been using Ecency for long but I don't receive your encouragement votes.

That’s really awesome

It is interesting. Thanks.

Hopefully this breakthrough can help plankton.

Hi, @ecency team.
Congratulations on your recent development. Many useful functions.

I would like to draw your attention to one thing:

Post thumbnail selection, now you can select any image from content body as thumbnail.

There is one ‘minor’ problem with this feature. When a photo is selected for a thumbnail of a certain post, it automatically remembers the same photo for the next one, unless the post thumbnail is manually selected again. This has happened to me twice.

Keep up the good work!

That great. 😍😍

Hello, a problem, I try to boost the article

But, why is there a systematic refusal ?

This is great, ecency keeps improving

It would be nice to have an android app that wouldn't require an active key to login to...

You don't need to login with active key on Ecency mobile app. Simply Wallet functionality won't work, all other functionality should work as usual.

That's great that it is supposed to be that way. The symptom is that I am told that the "token has invalid role try a different key or try again later". Now, it seems to be an error message that comes deep within some backend because I was not able to find this string in src/common/i18n/locales/en-US.json. Even the phrase "try a different key" is not in there.

Using the same string I was able to upvote this post:

Perhaps, account doesn't have in posting authority, that might be cause, if I remember correctly, authority is needed to handle scheduling content and some point related operations. But I think you should be able to use app even without that authority.

I was wrong. The login with posting key fails in the android app but not in the web facing front end. The front end works in both Chrome on android and Brave desktop.

Interesting, it shouldn't fail on mobile app. We will take a look. Creating github issue for tracking.

For reference and keep tracking, if you have any extra details, please add them here in comments of this bug report:

At this site you can see which authorities people use on a given account:

So '' does have posting authority for 'leprechaun'. I don't really want to keep the active key on a device I carry around. And I think you agree that you should be able to do posting level operations options with Ecency with the posting key and I know I wont be able to do active level operations in the wallet section. I don't want anyone who has my phone to be able to do that.

I think this is the current reality of the situation: You need active keys to login to Ecency on mobile or desktop. The problem might require radical changes to the source code because of its reliance to Hive-Signer in the login process, unfortunately.

Hivesigner's role is to secure our private api via access token, so there should be simpler logical distinction, not radical changes to source code though. We can gradually improve that logic for sure. Please create issue to relevant source code, if you want to discuss further and easier to keep reference of issues and potential solution ideas on github. For mobile app side, issue created, referenced in earlier comment.

Why are the points returned to me and there is no increase in the reward for the post? Thanks for the answer.
