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.
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?).
Speed issues on very old devices (like iPad 1) should also be reduced or eliminated entirely. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1
[new frontend]: page should no longer move while you're editing text of the post (new or existing) [TODO: same for comments]. This seems to be one of the last release blockers.
The new frontend seems a lot faster. ‎· John B. ‎· 2
Browser notifications handling was completely rewritten, and it should no longer repeatedly notify about the same events. You can enable notifications at https://mokum.place/settings/browser.
Bookmarklet code was updated to support image sharing from more websites. You need to remove existing bookmarklet and install it again from https://mokum.place/sh.
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.
This is the next step in the roadmap described in /mokum/1550908. ‎· псы в рапиде
New posting form just went live. Old posting form is no longer. Please report if you notice that something isn't working as expected.
New form was started almost exactly a year ago. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 3
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.
c) Mokum got new TLS certificate from https://letsencrypt.org/ ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 3
Last batch of small updates to direct messages in the new posting form. Please test, I'm going to remove the old one today.
You can now post directly from "For your eyes only" page (https://mokum.place/filter/fyeo) ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1
To double-check my understanding; "For your eyes only" is just a way for one to write notes to oneself? ‎· Galen Charlton
@gmcharlt: yes. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1
You can also move posts between your feed, your private subfeed, and "fyeo" with "More > Move to..." submenu under the post. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 2
Photo and URL posting seem to work (at least from the "For your eyes only" page). ‎· John B. ‎· 1
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.
a) Mokum Takeout (https://mokum.place/takeout) fixed and improved a little bit; b) Rails 4.2.10.
c) implemented new micro-syntax for "send me a direct message": dm:me. ‎· псы в рапиде
Images support in new posting form was improved: a) images should now be attached in the same order as they were selected;
b) images uploaded previously but not yet attached to posts will be visible on the next reload, allowing you to delete them if not needed; ‎· псы в рапиде
c) fixed case when you're sharing an URL via bookmarklet and you add another image via "Add URL"; ‎· псы в рапиде
d) when you upload photos on iPad and iPhone they were sometimes rotated and/or distorted before the upload; this is now hopefully fixed; ‎· псы в рапиде
New posting form can now upload images pasted from the clipboard [Firefox only]. Cursor needs to be inside the text area for this to work.
that is SERIOUSLY cool ‎· LibSkrat ‎· 1
@libskrat: Thanks! It worked all along in the old form also. ‎· псы в рапиде
I did not know that! Now I do. ‎· LibSkrat
@libskrat: I don't get this feature at all — it's completely unintuitive and hard to explain and it works only in certain browsers. But it seems to have dedicated following. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1
Just in case: drag and drop also works! In new form it's entire form, in the old form it's the "images" link. ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1
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.
The screen on my phone is completely filled up by the form, there's no content shown at first when I open mokum, I have to scroll. ‎· mattiaq ‎· 1

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.
Please report if bookmarklet sharing page breaks for you because of that. ‎· псы в рапиде
Ok, I managed to break posting from direct messages page for the current form. Please use the new one for now. Sorry! ‎· псы в рапиде
Fixed temporarily. ‎· псы в рапиде
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.
So, "softhide" and "hardhide". Possible verbs for the soft hide are "Mark as read", upd: "Mute", any other ideas? Possible verbs for the hard hide are "Flag", "Mark as unwanted", any other ideas? ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 1
Let me sum it up: 1) Mute - hides the post _only_ in current river, leaving it visible in any other river, 2) Hide - hide everywhere. That should cover all corner cases, including group admins, zero river users, snowflakes, work safety, etc, and still have a very simple and easy to explain set of rules. Sometimes it will require muting twice, but it's a small price to pay for comprehensiveness. I would also love "snooze" eventually - mute until new comment arrives. I would also have a button "show hidden posts" on all rivers if there are any hidden posts, either by mute, hide or ban - this will allow fast view switching to see if you missed anything - currently it's very hard to do. ‎· 50% ash ‎· 2
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.
Bookmarklet moved out of beta status, and there is now an explanation on how to use it with Chrome on iPad/iPhone: https://mokum.place/sh
a) fixed an issue with browser notifications which were delayed indefinitely. They're now delivered in about 5 minutes after mention or inbound link;
b) Youporn and Pornhub links are now auto-embedded; ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 4
c) bookmarklet now redirects to homefeed after successful sharing; TODO: redirect to wherever you've posted; ‎· псы в рапиде ‎· 2
d) broken GIFs are now handled correctly when sharing with bookmarklet or "Add URL" button; ‎· псы в рапиде
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.
b) image layout engine improved a little bit. Single images now enjoy a bit more space. ‎· псы в рапиде
Thanks for implementing this. Would it be possible for the bookmarklet to include the page title, along with the URL? ‎· John B.
@dendroica: first, it's even better: if you select some text on a page, it will be copied to the posting form. But yeah, it makes sense to fall back to page title. Thank you. ‎· псы в рапиде

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,
