Installation of pytition


I have just installed Pytition 2.7~ynh1on my Yunohost server version 11.1.18 and I have a few questions…

  1. The installation script ask for a password for the “admin” account. But when I try to log with admin for name and this password Pytition dos not recognise this account and complain that either the login or the password is wrong. My questions are : Is there really an “admin” account in Petition ? If so, how can I access to this admin account ?

  2. I can acces to Pytition with a dédicace URL, I can create a user account, I can set up a petition, I can acces to the specific URL of this petition and I can sign this petition. So far so good !

  3. But … by clicking on the URL included in the confirmation email sent by Pytition I dont jump to the Pytition confirmation web page, I jump to the YunoHost portal and this is a dead end as I am not supposed to be a registered user of this Yunohost instance to sign a petition ! What can I do to be able to reach the continuation web page ?

  4. The name of the sender of the confirmation email is : “webmaster@localhost”. It looks to me not very trustable by the people who will receive this email. How can I change the sender name for something more trustable ?

Thanks for your help. Regards

Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no vanilla yunosh install

If your request is related to an app, specify its name and version: Pytition 2.7~ynh1

Hello @pascal-levasseur

Sorry I have not seen your post earlier.
Your points 1 and 3 are indeed bugs. Good news: they have been fixed in Pytition v2.8 which is already available via YunoHost :slight_smile:
The email configuration can be set up in Pytition’s config file. It’s not possible via the web UI unfortunately.

Search for a on your server in your pytition install and modify it according to Django 4.2 documentation: Settings | Django documentation | Django
You can set those:

  • DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL (it’s the one you are actually searching for)
