Whenever I search in Google for a string to look for previous discussion, Google gives me good results, and I click on the link. But the place in the room/thread I land on is not what Google summarised, and a quick scroll / browser page search doesn't return my string.

Gitter search is all but unusable too as it returns an awkward all-time list of results in no order of relevance. In the case of code blocks the whole post is squeezed in to the search sidebar, unformatted. So if you're searching for example, an error log you have no hope of finding what you want with any context.

@old-square-eyes there are a few open issues for UX improvements to the search panel gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#1361 and gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#566

As per the Google results, we are unaware of the issue. It is most likely caused by google indexing getting out of date with the latest 50 messages in the room.

@old-square-eyes @viktomas I wonder if this related to the archives being relative to your own local date/time

@old-square-eyes Mind creating an issue for this? https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/issues

@old-square-eyes
@MadLittleMods thanks will do
Also... If you deprecate mobile apps, what will users on the go do?
I mainly use mobile apps to chat about dev projects on the go.
One of which is a channel about a mobile app I test. Lack of image or screen shot uploading and share context on mobile has driven me crazy at times, as have sync issues.
But this seems backwards just getting rid of them.

@MadLittleMods

@old-square-eyes We wouldn't remove the mobile apps for existing users (issue for onlookers). There is mobile web as well

You can track gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-android-app#102 for image upload

@old-square-eyes
But the apps will be deprecated so a year's old ticket won't land right?

@MadLittleMods
@old-square-eyes It can land from a community contribution (happy to review that)

I just created a community but didn't have the option to make it private
Is that possible or am I missing something?
Tomas
@viktomas
@kdheepak Only rooms within the community can be private. Communities are always public.

Thanks.

Hi guys. Is it possible to change mode when typing so that the Enter button makes a new line instead of sending the incomplete message?
In mobile app
Tomas
@viktomas
@pasha-pivo the compose mode is available only on desktop

@MadLittleMods is there a reason why the official mac version is the old 1.177 (non opensource based on safari) and not the "current" 4.1.0 wich can be downloaded if path known?
just curious because i am using 4.1.0 ;-)

@ericmartinezr
Hye guys, having this issue right now

can't scroll down to see the full msg
(it's not always, and when I change from one chat to another it gets fixed)
This is how I trigger it: make it work correctly, then change the screen size (I move my window from a screen to another) and the problem shows up. Like I said changing from one chatroom to another fixes the problem, refreshing the window doesn'tw ork

@MadLittleMods
:point_up: September 27, 2019 4:20 AM @schwedenmut_gitlab The reason we were holding off is because the auto-update process on 4.1.0 isn't that great
:point_up: September 27, 2019 8:28 AM @ericmartinezr I have seen this a couple times recently as well, mind creating an issue? https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/issues

@MadLittleMods FYI i’m having a go at fixing the iOS app today, re gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app!6 -
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@puremourning Sweet, can't wait to see the merge request (even if WIP)!
Ben Jackson
@puremourning
It’s good news/bad news. I have it all running. I’ve upgraded to swift 5 so can test on latest sim and my devices. But the chat room is just empty. Can’t seem to get the web view to work. Also seems very broken in dark mode. Fun times. I will keep hacking away at it.
I’ve also added a couple of instructions to the readme (E.g. need for cocoa pods)
Ben Jackson
@puremourning
@MadLittleMods @viktomas it seems like the ios assets are just broken in latest master in webapp. even if i download the archice from the latest CI build of mobile-asset-build, i just get empty webview. any ideas ? (fwiw i can’t repro any crashes in the app yet)
Screenshot 2019-09-29 at 17.32.25.png
my bset guess at the moment is that the mobile-native-embedded-chat.js isn’t being included in the webpack
but that is what’s best described as an uninformed guess
Ben Jackson
@puremourning
Hahah. I was right! does a dance. I just added that to the webpack config and it now works.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@puremourning Better to discuss all of this in https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/contributing

Great sleuthing!

Is it possible to alter a community name? Slug I understand not being able to, but the name appears to just be aesthetic.
Mike Rochefort
@omento_gitlab
I see, my eyes completely missed that earlier.

@johnpankowicz
Is there a video tutorial or manual on getting started with using Gitter?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@johnpankowicz No, we just have the docs, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/tree/develop/docs
Marc Schwede
@schwedenmut_gitlab
:point_up: September 27, 2019 6:13 PM @MadLittleMods ok, then I will not go on and update the homebrew cask for gitter to point to 4.1.0. Thanks for the clarification 👍
Mike Rochefort
@omento_gitlab
Out of curiosity how many people are on the Gitter team? It seems like a project with a lot of potential, but never really hear anything about it since the GitLab acquisition.
