Hello, I just learned about OSSN about a week ago and today I just finished installing and tweaking a fresh instance of v6.1 on my personal webserver and I wanted to share my thoughts and ask a few basic questions about the way OSSN currently behaves.
Note - My entire LAMP stack is managed via Meza  which is an ansible project that configures and deploys a fully-featured (media)wiki-farm server and all supporting components including the OS. While meza is not designed for any other web applications, it was straight-forward to create a dedicated virtualhost for OSSN to run along side all the wikis.
installation/classes/OssnInstall.phpand making sure that
public static function is_mod_rewrite()always returns
true.. that was fun.
httpsrather than just
httpdue to the
too many redirects. This was tricky. I spent a few hours trying to fix this in
$baseurlto be my application url and edited all the of the
$redirect = true;occurrences to
$redirect = false;. And that solved the too many redirects problem.
After that, OSSN worked as intended.
Questions about standard behavior:
I'd like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the OSSN development community. Bravo. This is nearly perfect for what I have been hoping to do in 2022 to create a private social media site for my close friends and family. The ability to have a
facebook-like application that is entirely free of advertisements and 100% controlled by the users (me and mine) is exactly what this world needs. I'm looking forward to contributing to the code as I can and as time permits.
I have http to https forward. I have seen this too many redirects, but rarely. Do I have to do the same as Rich has done? Please suggest. Thank you.
Im learning this do you mind if i ask you questions when i need help ?
You can just download the component. I am not sure which subscription you meant :) Regarding JS handler yes someone need to write it. That is the only one way I see so to handle the upload via XHR and then to find the progress of it :)
Ok. That makes sense. Thank you! .. For future posting attempts, what are the current rules for posts?
And thanks for the link to the group invitation component .. I'm waiting for my subscription to be approved so I can check it out (I'm sure it's perfect!)
Also.. regarding the JS handler for photo uploads .. is there a JS handler component or are you inviting me to write one? :-)
Thanks for posting here, due to abuse in past and spam we restricted the discussion length and added some other rules, Maybe Some rule triggered for your post.
ossn_redirect_absolute_url The redirect loop occurs if you have setup a traffic forward from http to https and on OSSN config there is a different protocol like http instead of https causing the issue :)
Secret Groups, OSSN only have two options to create a third option of course you would need to edit OssnGroups component.
You can invite member https://www.opensource-socialnetwork.org/component/view/3305/group-invitation
Group albums, not possible right now the only way is to add single photo to group.
Regarding Photos : This can be created by adding a JS handler for upload!
