Is there a way to reactivate a Friendfeed account that a user has accidentally deleted? Recover all the posts and comments in that account?
Andrew C (✔)
Advanced Tweets seems to be only working intermittently as of today.
Andrew C (✔)
welp, I can't seem to comment on anything right now: "The file you requested is no longer on FriendFeed's servers." But the post I'm trying to comment on does exist!
Weird. - Stephen Mack
Clearing the browser cache didn't fix it. Logging out and back in didn't. (I can, however, comment via Android, which is how I'm writing this.) - Andrew C (✔) from Android
OK. My problem appears to be with the friendfeedimagezoom Greasemonkey script I've been using. Disabling just that one fixes it. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, it does that to me, too. I use the script only when I need it, then turn it off and reload after to reset. - Spidra Webster
I'm pretty sure for me it never started causing persistent trouble until last Friday. - Andrew C (✔)
WJones
For some reason the Upload files button doesnt work for me.

Yes, it would be great. Anyone? - Здравствуй, смелая птица

FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly Claus #anticaper
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly Claus #anticaper
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo
Bump due to recent discussion. Micah, it'd be great to incorporate that feature from April's. Heard that at least one user is having trouble with the new bookmarklet. How's it working for others? (Works great for me! My default browser is Chrome.) - Stephen Mack
Working with Chrome, I'd say it works about 95% of the time really well. There are a couple sites where it just doesn't want to pull in the images, and sometimes the NY Times is tweaky, but both seem related to recent layout changes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mine still doesn't work. I wonder if one of my plugins is breaking it. I've taken to browsing in Chrome and copying the URL over to IE when I want to post something to FF. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It doesn't work for me: in Firefox (my default browser) it just brings up an empty box. As DB said, it might be a conflict with an extension, but I'm not sure which would be causing it. - John (bird whisperer)
First off, thank you for this work. I'll test it out in a bit. I have a lot of browsers to test in, and I use XMARKS so it should just pop to all my different browsers. - Eric - ill subliminal

some of the people i subscribe to disappear from my timeline. (e.g. http://friendfeed.com/eemrebi...). they can see the feeds of the other users, but their comments and posts are not visible to the rest of us. when will this be fixed?

Louis Gray
FF Team, how come you can't find your Twitter friends on the service any longer? Is this due to Twitter changes? Are there plans to restore it? Thanks.
Screen shot 2010-10-14 at 12.37.45 PM.png
yes, this. - holly #ravingfangirl
If you put &source=twitterandroid at the end of the REST request, I bet they can punch through any of twitter's API changes. - Andy Bakun
did not the twitter API change some time ago ? - Peter Dawson
Yes and yes. - Benjamin Golub
thanks Louis this is a huge loss to the service you provide guys. Find your friends › Find Twitter friends Finding your Twitter friends We could not find your Twitter friends. - Thomas Power
This has been fixed. - Benjamin Golub
Something fixed on FriendFeed? Hmmm... - Cliff Gerrish
right on. thanks again, Ben! :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd be happy if I could get my Twitter to import again. Has not for... months. - Alix May
Yes Cliff, things do get fixed here. Not always as quickly as we'd like, but that's universal. - Bruce Lewis
Ben is awesome, of course. Thank you sir. - Louis Gray
Things get fixed but no new features will be added. - Akiva
something wrong with ff. - Tayfun Yaşar
Like Alix said, importing twitter not working still... - Cem
Ben: keeper of the flame. - Laura Norvig
Thanks Louis this really does need fixing FF is the only place that aggregates twitter feeds well - Thomas Power
Fantastic Ben, Louis thank you so much. - Thomas Power
Bipolar owl: I'm sorry you feel that way. I actually did commit a change that fixes this and a few weeks ago another change that fixed adding Twitter accounts. Unfortunately both fixes are for public Twitter accounts only. It looks like you have a private account. Stay tuned! - Benjamin Golub
Thanks for the fixes and the great attitude Ben. I imagine there isn't a huge incentive to continue to patch things around here, but it's clearly a great product and people are still passionate about it. Rock on, dude. - John
This is broken again. - Fedge No

"How is FriendFeed able to import items/actions from over 50 different services?" - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
WJones
Has anyone had any success contacting Friendfeed support? Friendfeed constantly says that my password is wrong.
Nope, I have reset my password recently without issue. I haven't been able to get Twitter hooked back up in forever. - Daniel W. Crompton
I think the Twitter problem is because Twitter changed its API. Old FF-Twitter connections are grandfathered in to a certain extent, but new ones don't work. You can use Advanced Tweets to import your Twitter here. http://friendfeed.com/advance... - Spidra Webster
Anne Bouey
Signing in with FB and Twitter should be working now. :)
She says, knowingly... - Spidra Webster
Thanks. I keep getting signed out of Friendfeed and it says that my password isn't recognized, so I constantly have to keep resetting my password, which on the next Login, Friendfeed says is incorrect. - WJones
Thanks Anne, you are my savior. - samet

How to get the FF bookmarklet working in Chrome again (thanks to user "sizofroid")
chromess.jpg
EDIT: Forget these steps, just go to http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Stephen Mack
1. In Chrome, open the page https://gist.githubusercontent.com/anonymo... 2. Copy the entire text from that page by hitting Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C - Stephen Mack
3. Show your Chrome bookmarks by hitting Ctrl+Shift+B (if they're hidden) - Stephen Mack
4. Right-click on an empty area of Chrome's bookmark bar, then select "Add page..." from the shortcut menu. - Stephen Mack
5. Under "Name", put in whatever you want the button to appear as (such as "FF+" or "Share on FF"). - Stephen Mack
6. Under "URL", press Ctrl+V to paste in the text you just copied. - Stephen Mack
7. Click Save - Stephen Mack
8. Bookmark stuff. Happy FriendFeeding! - Stephen Mack
Credit to user "sizofroid" (http://friendfeed.com/sizofro...) due to his comment on a post from Amit Patel here: http://friendfeed.com/amitp... - Stephen Mack
I don't know if sizofroid fixed this code or not (since both the github repository here and the code it calls on Google Drive are anonymously contributed), but whoever wrote this and fixed it, THANK YOU! - Stephen Mack
Per sizofroid in that comment, this replacement bookmarklet works on Safari as well (but I haven't tested that). My instructions are from the perspective of a Windows Chrome user; if I need to modify any of these instructions for MacOS, please let me know. - Stephen Mack
I don't see anything dangerous in the code (https://googledrive.com/host...) but bear in mind that in theory whoever created this could change the code to be malicious in the future, and in theory possibly add a keyboard logger or blah blah blah so caveat emptor. - Stephen Mack
The code was written by Bret or Paul, no diff from, http://friendfeed.com/share.... It's literally just a rehost. My guess is the only thing that needed changed was http://friendfeed to https://friendfeed in the bookmarklet, as has been required for Firefox for 2 years. - NOT THE CRICKET
Just checked and there is a diff, at line 300 iframe.location has been changed to iframe.src (in the working version). - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah, I see -- thanks for checking, Jimminy. - Stephen Mack
Thanks VERY much all -- it works! Reposted to Quora friendfeeders: https://friendfeeders.quora.com/How-to-... TLDR for Firefox: go to your Bookmarks library, and manually edit the entry for the Friendfeed bookmarklet --change the part of the one-line javascript code from "http://friendfeed" to "https://friendfeed". - Adriano
Adriano, interestingly, just changing the http to https alone doesn't solve it for Chrome, it looks like the other change listed by Jimminy is needed to solve it on Firefox. - Stephen Mack
I backed up both the bookmark code and the bookmarklet code here: http://friendfeed.com/friendf... - Stephen Mack
Thank you, Stephen. \\ Also, the code for rendering embedded YouTube videos is not part of the bookmarklet. It's on the Friendfeed server side, so hopefully a kind FF engineer will fix the problem to work with the current YouTube API. - Adriano
Hmm, for YouTube, I just manually change the URL to http instead of https, and it usually works. - Stephen Mack
THANK YOU - lris
Mike Tyson does not work :( https://friendfeed.com/rsvp... so wondering what works consistently for YouTube. - Adriano
Youtube, has to be posted manually or while not logged in to google. Friendfeed's linkify on the backend only handles http:// links. Google forces https:// on all pages while logged in. - NOT THE CRICKET
Or you can just delete the pesky "s" before posting. - lris
Iris, when posting from the bookmarklet, it doesn't let you modify the URL. And Google will automatically redirect to the secure protocol, so you can't open the bookmarklet on a non-secure page. - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah, my bookmarklet has been kaput for so long I'd forgotten that. :) - lris
So being logged into Google has a hidden side effect, wow, thx. - Adriano
Asking from ignorance: does this work on Macs? - bentley
Adriano, well not all pages, just Google owned sites, like Youtube and stuff. It's pretty common to force logged-in users into using a secure protocol while logged-in as best practices. - NOT THE CRICKET
true, and for Quora pages one must manually append "?share=1" to URL for the benefit of non-Quora viewers. - Adriano
Betsy, it's not a machine problem, merely some bookmark code in the browser one uses. - Adriano
From what I can tell, the iframe.src is a recent Webkit change (effecting Chrome & Safari), and the protocol issue has been prevalent for all mainstream browsers for a few months, due to blocking Mixed Active Content (trying to access HTTP content on an HTTPS page [images get a pass, due to common caching systems]). - NOT THE CRICKET
This is great, thanks Stephen. I've posted an alternate hosting solution for those who want to use dropbox (or extrapolate the idea to other platform to self-host and control one's version of the code) http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Micah
Thanks, Adriano. - bentley
Thanks for this useful info :) - Ozgur Uckan
Thank you!! - Amit Patel
Thank you, Stephen! - Maitani
You guys, use Micah's version! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thank you! :) - Pea Bukowski
Just updated! I can't use Micah's version because dropbox is blocked at work. :( - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I self hosted the target javascript, works like a charm. - Andy Bakun
For the interested, I added a feature to make it work with flickr (SEE http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... ) - Micah
Very good - Thank You - YoNews

کسی اینو تست کرد؟ - ؛ patrick
Eclipse project files come with the source. Download/install eclipse (http://www.eclipse.org/downloa...). Then use Import -> General -> Existing Projects into Workspace - and it will compile it for you. Shoot questions if you have any problem - ؛ patrick

nice! - .LAG liked that
Thanks. Did you get a chance to test it? - ؛ patrick
@ ؛ patrick: not yet, but will import it into Eclipse when I get a chance - .LAG liked that
...works as advertised. i now have a folder full of XML - .LAG liked that
very nice. glad to hear that! - ؛ patrick
پانته آ جان اجازه بدید من فردا نگاهی به کد بندازم ببینم چه کاری میتونم انجام بدم که یک سری فیلتر بشه براش تعریف کرد - ؛ patrick
خوب من به برنامه فیلتر اضافه کردم ولی مطمئن نیستم این چیزی هست که می خواستی. مساله اینجاست که اگر برای لینکی لایک نزده باشی یا کامنتی ننوشته باشی، در لیست مای دیسکاشنز ظاهر نمیشه و در نتیجه دانلود هم نمیشه - ؛ patrick
بله حالا ورژن جدیده. فرصت بشه این قسمتش رو هم درست می کنم - ؛ patrick
any mac version? :D - نیک
شرمنده نیک جان. من مک در اختیار ندارم. اگر زحمتی نیست اون بچ-فایل رو یه نگاهی بکن ببین چطور میشه تبدیلش کرد به اسکریپت برای مک. اگر کار کرد که زحمت بکش به من هم یک کپی بده. اگر هم سوالی داری بپرس که جواب بدم - ؛ patrick
12/12/2011 - Version 1.1.3 - Added Spam Cleaner - ؛ patrick
13/12/2011 - Version 1.1.4 - Added ability to delete comments from blocked users - ؛ patrick
برای کسانی که می خوان اسپم ها رو پاک کنن، من یک قسمت جدید به برنامه اضافه کردم که میتونید لیست افرادی که اسپم می کنند را به فایل کانفیگ اضافه کنید و برنامه رو اجرا کنید. خود به خود تمام کامنت های این افراد را در هر جایی که زیر لینک های شما باشه پاک می کنه حتی اگر اونها را بلاک کرده باشید. ولی شرطش اینه که پابلیک باشید. مثلن اگر پرایوت هستید، میتونید قبل از اجرای برنامه برای چند لحظه پابلیک بشید و وقتی برنامه تمام شد دوباره پرایوت کنید - ؛ patrick
پاتریک، این چه قابلیت‌ها و ویژگی‌هایی داره؟ - آرشیو
ورژن قدیمیش که میتونه از فیدتون بک آپ بگیره. حالا هم یک برنامه بهش اضافه کردم که میتونه کامنت های اسپمر ها رو از تمام لینک هاتون پاک کنه - ؛ patrick
برنامه سراغ نداری که لیست کسانی را که بلاک کرده‌ایم یا ما را بلاک کرده‌اند را نشان بدهد؟ - آرشیو
;-) - ؛ patrick
it's a batch file. they don't need eclipse for it - ؛ patrick
it's okay :)) - ؛ patrick
دانلودش کن، به درد می خوره ;-) - ؛ patrick
اون دو تا بچ فایل رو باز کن، کامندش اونجا هست. شرمنده فرصت نشد برای لینوکس هم اسکریپتش رو بنویسم - ؛ patrick
مرسی. اگر ساکس رو اضافه کردی کدش رو به من هم بده اضافه ش کنم. یا اگر می خوای میتونم اضافه ت کنم به پروژه خودت تغییرات رو کامیت کنی - ؛ patrick
دو نوع فایل اونجا هست. یک سری فایل سورس هست (اس-آر-سی) و یک سری فایل باینری (بی-آی-ان). باید اون فایل باینری رو دانلود کنید. بعد توی یک فولدر آن-زیپ ش کنید. بعد یک فایل داره به اسم رید-می (مرا بخوانید) که همه چیز توش نوشته شده - ؛ patrick
بهتره به جای هارد کد کردن مقادیر تغییر پذیر از کانفیگ فایل استفاده بشه - محمد لی

To whom it may concern: please fix the feature for adding photos to Friendfeed entries. Thanks.
And could someone point out to Mark Zuckerberg that it might be a good business decision for Facebook to resume the development of Friendfeed at full force? - Sean McBride
