I’m investigating Mobilisation, which seems wonderful and a potential alternative to using Facebook Events - however I have a number of questions involving setup and use.
I’ve tried using the docker instance, and this seems to mostly work, but there seem to be some difficulties, which I’ll list below:
The docker image appears to default to port 4000, and http only. Is it expected that, at least for exploratory investigation, that this work perfectly? For example, I notice that sign up emails have links using https, and I can’t find a way to specify the following correctly:
The docker installation page at https://docs.joinmobilizon.org/administration/docker/ don’t seem to give me an indication of what the « admin » account is.
There are errors when using the page, especially after restarting the docker service. The error tells me to refresh and reconnect to the website. Is this because I didn’t set up https (as per point 1?)
The message in the console is as follows:
[Error] Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) (api, line 0)
- I’m happy to re-test and provide the stack trace, etc.
When I first tried this, I didn’t have email set up correctly. I tried creating some accounts, but never got the email for those. However, once I set up SMTP correctly, creating accounts started working. But I don’t seem to be able to resend the « instructions » email for the accounts I had created earlier - is this a missing feature?
And finally, I am confused about the following environment settings:
Because the docker page says to use a command to generate values for this:
gpg --gen-random --armor 1 50
However, do I need to run it twice and so generate two different values?
- And perhaps as a tangential feature - is it possible to embed videos in both the event page and the event comments or discussions? The reason I ask is because I like to use Sign language and some of our users might prefer to respond with a video.
Thanks! I realise this is Alpha quality software (Well, at least the Docker pathway is described as alpha in your docs), and it’s actually looking pretty good already.
