a) (new frontend) problem with popups that do not go away is fixed, hopefully; b) post input area uses newly-implemented component in both old and new frontends. Please report if anything breaks for you.
Posts in group changelog
Text input forms were completely rewritten and should not cause any more issues with scrolling. Please test, especially if you use non-mainstream browsers (@app103?).
Mokum now transparently supports uploading Webp files. For normal people (tm) it means that you will have less trouble uploading more files from Android devices and sharing some pages via bookmarklet or extension.
You can now search in Mokum texts (k-texts), using https://mokum.place/ks. Also, when you search for posts, there is now a link suggesting to search in texts, e.g.: https://mokum.place/ks?q=amsterdam. Texts could be created in https://mokum.place/k with arguably rudimentary interface, but useful for quick stash of texts that are longer than a post. (Tnx to @markizko for implementing this.)
We're starting to move Mokum to the new server. There will be a brief period when the site will be read-only, and maybe there will be some downtime. Please stay calm. Update: we're running on a single server for now.
I've just rolled out big clean up, removing lots of very old frontend code. Almost nothing should change, except that Mokum should now load a bit faster. Statistics pages at https://mokum.place/about/stats and https://mokum.place/about/online were reimplemented to get rid of old tech. If you notice something broken, please report.
More updates after additional testing: a) page is visually stable when you are writing new post; b) improved visual presentation of server communication progress, based on suggestions from @1master.
Direct message recipient selector in new posting form mostly works (almost the same way as the current one). There are several corner cases that need to be fixed. That's very good news: new form will be released very soon.
You can now easily switch between new and old posting form, for testing. Also, there were some improvements to the new direct messages selector. My target is to make the new form default end of this week.
New posting form (https://mokum.place/?new_form=1) is finally able to send direct messages (alpha testing, looks horribly but works). There are several obvious deficiencies to be fixed tomorrow, after that we'll begin a proper testing cycle.
Feature proposal: It looks like there are two scenarios for hiding posts. First is "hide this post from my homefeed, because I've read it and want to clear my homefeed". Second is "This post is really annoying and I do not want to see it ever". Currently hiding works mostly according to the second scenario, which sometimes leads to surprises.
New posting form (https://mokum.place/?new_form=1) now shows every step of creating new post (uploading images, waiting for image processing, creating new post), and properly reports errors. This also works for "Add URL" button and for the bookmarklet.
Sharing bookmarklet is almost usable: https://mokum.place/sh. Please test and report if you notice any problems. TODO: a) redirect somewhere sensible after successful sharing; b) implement direct message mode.
Bookmarklet is getting closer: preliminary backend support deployed. This shouldn't break normal upload, please report if you notice anything. Testing link, not for the faint of heart: https://mokum.place/sh (many things are broken and UI is horrible, but it works if you click the right buttons). Thanks,
