The homepage also got a bit of a rework for the News section:

TROMnews is now far better than it was before. If you'd like to support this work please consider helping us here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

Friendica (TROM Social) upgrade failed. In truth it went well, but there are a lot of settings and tweaks we need to do, so I had to postpone it for now and so I restored it...

Some issues with TROMnews that we are trying to fix:

- Some news/items do not link to the original source, but to the excerpt on our TROMnews...only a few do that but it is strange why.
- Some sources are not automatically updated for some reason...so we have to trigger the update manually...this is not great in the long run and we are trying to investigate why....mainly the Photos and FInteresting are not automatically updated. Luckily the News are.
- The Peertube sources cannot display a featured image and that sucks....we do not know what's a way around it but we will try...

As you can see there are still things that need to be fixed, but overall the new TROMnews is a great source of information!

Ok fixed the Peertube featured images issue. Will see about the rest....


Why TROMnews is important, and why no one uses it

Yah I wish I knew how to do these. But we have so many websites it would be impossible for 1 person to do all of these and not use 3rd party plugins/scripts.

@Tio @TROM

Yeah for sure these plugins and stuff makes it quick & easy for you to design websites. You need to know some programming and stuff to manage everything by hand and even then it'll take some time, if I learn enough skills to do this then I'll try to help you with the programming side of things so that you can focus on the content side.

Our TROMnews sources refuse to update after we updated Wordpress to the latest stable version. Needs some more investigation....so you know... #tromlive


We have a new supporter for our 200 for TROM campaign! https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - Thank you Darby!

We need some 150 more people to donate 5 Euros a month and support our project forever. Some 20 websites, a lot of trade-free materials and services. Support if you can :)

The counter on the webpage is only showing 46 donors tho, did you forgot to update it? :blobcatgiggle:
No. That's how many there are. I said we need some 150 more, instead of saying that we need 154 more :)

We've updated our TROM Videos too. Now Peertube has more cool features like the storyboard - you can hover with your mouse over the seekbar of a video and see thumbnails. Pretty nice!

We are currently generating the thumbnails for all of our videos (may take a while to finish), but any new video uploaded from now one will have this feature.

You can also add chapters to your videos and more. Awesome job @PeerTube !

From now on we will post a "must watch" documentary from VideoNeat on our Peertube's homepage - https://videos.trom.tf so make sure you check that out and subscribe to our VideoNeat channel - https://videos.trom.tf/c/videoneat/videos

This year we will try to focus on the content for our TROM Videos and bring new creators, plus create new videos ourselves too.

So please, if you can, help us here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - we only need 160 more people to donate 5 Euros a month to support TROM forever.

Updated our TROM Files to Nextcloud 28. Biggish update. We had to remove the following apps tho, since they were not compatible: files_3d, files_markdown, metadata, video_converter, extract. Whenever these are available for Nextcloud 28 we will enable them.

Take advantage of our TROM Files https://files.trom.tf - you get 10GB of storage space and access to better tools than Google's Drive. All trade-free.
