Manyverse lists the room on the ‘connections panel’
So you can see your Room in your Connections Panel?? Fuck, why can’t I see mine? Can you see your Room in your Connections Panel all the time? Or, only when you are logged into the Room web login?
So, I sent Invite codes to people, including other accounts of my own on Manyverse and Patchwork. The others all installed Manyverse on their phones. Went to the invite page, clicked to accept invite code, the pages says that it’s trying to find a SSB app, after a few moments it says there is no SSB app on their phone and to install Manyverse. Of course, it’s already installed. So, they chose the other option, of pasting in the code. That seemed to work, but there was no confirmation such as “you have successfully connected with this room”, but if I go into the Room Admin Panel, I can see that they are now members of the room and their invite codes were Claimed. But, zero people online. So, your screenshot shows “1 Online” mine always shows “0 Online”.
Okay, so I just went to my mydomain.noho.st > Login >
Usually, I choose to login with my password because the other method never works.
So just now I tried again…
Sign In With SSB > Then it opened Manyverse
Wow! It usually never does that. Usually it says that it cannot find a SSB app. Manyverse asked me if I want to allow it to sign in, I clicked yes. Great!
Then a blank tab opened in my browser. Huh? Why??
I went back to the Login Page tab and it says “waiting for confirmation”.
But wait… I could suddenly see my Room in the Connections Panel!!! Said ‘unknown’ but it was there! What does this mean?? Why did it suddenly appear?
Back at the Login page it was still in “Waiting For Confirmation” from Manyverse. Waiting, waiting… then my Room disappeared from the Connections Panel and I got a message on the login page:
Sign-in failed. Please make sure you use an SSB app that supports this method of login,
and click the button above within a minute after this page was opened.
Shit!! Was the sudden appearance of the Room a coincidence, or connected to my Login attempt??
That doesn’t make sense, because once you are a member of the room, aren’t you automatically connected to the room with Manyverse everytime you open the app? You don’t have to Sign In to the Room every time to connect with friends, do you?? Or is that how it works?? I’m pretty sure once you are connected, it’s automatic after that.
So maybe all of this problem is something to do with improper communication between the Login Page and Manyverse. I’ll try to recreate the sudden appearance. I’m using Firefox, but my friends were using their phones, so it didn’t work for them either, they had to paste the code to accept the invites.
I’ll try SSB Login again…
Yes, my Room appeared again! It stayed in the Connections Panel until just before the “Sign-in failed” message. Holy fuck, I feel like I made some progress. Before it disappeared, I quickly opened the profile for the Room in Manyverse and clicked Follow, I thought maybe that’s what it wanted me to do. But, no, the Room soon disappeared again. When “Sign-in failed” on the browser login page.
I will try again with Safari…
The exact same thing happened with Safari, Manyverse opens, click Yes, blank page opens in Safari, then on the login page says “Waiting For Confirmation”, and eventually the Room disapears from the Connections Panel and the same error is seen in the broswer SSB Login page.
I kept my dashboard open the whole time in Firefox while trying to Login with Safari, and always “0 Online”. I thought that maybe it might say “1 online” while the Room was visible in the Connections Panel, but no. I asked my friend (distant location) to try to sign in with SSB (android phone), but when they do that, it opens a blank page on their browser.
I have called my friends on the phone to see if they can connect to anyone, no they cannot. The Room doesn’t appear in their Connections Panel and they cannot see others online when we know they are online, and I’m online, and the Room is online. Uuuuug!
