eSteem solutions to recent common issues

last month
73 in esteem

This post is to quickly refer user to find solution to their issues. It looks like with a lot of new users to the platform, which excites us all, number of misuses and sometimes weird issues are being reported. Here I will post some resolutions for common issues so if you have had one, feel free to try out.

Below screenshots and error reports from some users, hope they don't mind if I share them here with solutions so others can see and follow...

Common issues and solutions

Screenshot Solution

Cause: Credential or password mistype. Voting and Posting/Commenting will show similar error message.

Solution: Logout and Login back with your password or private posting key through Advanced option, but beware of typos on password. Best way to avoid typos is to use Advanced login option and QR scan private posting and active keys.

Note: Prior v1.4.6, eSteem login process had small bug. v1.4.6 already has a fix, all you have to do update app and re-login.

Cause: Username doesn't require @ character during login.

Solution: Just removing unnecessary characters from username field should solve the issue.

Note: v1.4.6 already have fix for this which handles incorrect characters.

Cause: Usually if you have # in tags field which is not necessary.

Solution: Just removing unnecessary characters from tags field should solve issue.

Note: v1.4.6 already have fix for this which handles incorrect characters.

Cause: When you select Capture Picture with Camera, app crash or force close happens on some Android devices.

Solution: You can manually enable permission to camera, here is post with video explaining how to do that

Note: v1.4.6 already have fixed it but in case you haven't updated app yet, you can do so now. Go to Play Store and make sure you have latest release installed.

Cause: Incorrect Voting weight or voting weight value is not recognized.

Solution: Adjust voting percentage and try again. You can access voting percent slider by tapping and holding on vote button 0.5 seconds, it will popup slider so you can adjust according to your need. You can also change percentage from Settings page of the app.



If you have experienced some issues and you have found workaround or solution, feel free to share it under #esteem-feedback and #esteem-tips to help other users.

Steem on!

So many great updates and fix operations for eSteem. This app is already better than some popular social media apps. Imagine it in a year. It's going to be yuge. Blogging and commenting became so much easier and more interesting since we are all on our smartphones.

P. S Uninstall that Facebook and Twitter app.;)
Live a better life.

Don't rush to uninstall those apps, it's enough to start slowly not to use them, so we can copy there best practices
and experience to improve our eSteem app ;)

That's so true and seriously I've been facing some really irritating problems with my esteem app. Now that I have the solution to most of these problems, I must thank you. This is a valuable piece of information. This app has definitely made lives better.
Uninstallation in progress. :D

don't uninstall their twitter & fb. You got friends from there to see steemit as another place to post their stuff too. remember, cross platform and for them to see you progress, too. and some promos are on fb and twitter too like dash promos requiring using your fb, insta, and twitter. Besides freedomnation. isn't there like share this thru your other social media options on this app, too? so it gets more outreach.

I just downloaded eSteem yesterday and first of all, thank you so much for making this wonderful piece of software! I just voted you for Witness.

I had a few minor issues, but I blame my phone more than anything else. Everything crashes for me.

Great to see so much fixed with updates! I'll continue using the app every day.

Once again, thanks a lot for a great work Feruz. The app is getting better day by day. Glad to know that it is being used by more and more people. I am going to post one blog on my site to promote it further.
Also, I have updated the app and found couple of issues. I will be posting it on the git directly. :-)
Keep up the great work. And can you tell me when the desktop app will be available?

These troubles was happened to me when first time i use it. But as soon as possible, the trouble was disappear when im using it.
I think that's normal. The big solution for this great apps is best connection power. Because it will help us so much and make us easier with using it.
For new users, this information really useful and informative. You don't need to be worry anymore.
Thanks for helping us, sir @good-karma 🙏

Thanks for this app! I downloaded it yesterday on the iOS App Store. It's awesome! I have a question about the steampower indicator. It's a very nice feature! In a web browser how do I see that same info? I can only see it in eSteem which is my preferred platform now, but when I am on my computer I'd be curious to see the same info.

Thanks again for the app!

31
  ·  29 days ago

Thank you For updating us with what's going on, and for the app itself, the app freezes on iOS for no apparent reason while surfing !
Everytime this happens, app restart is needed!
I hope you'll address this issue in the next update!

Hi @good-karma. I had an issue with uploading images directly from my phone. When I upload directly from my phone, the images are rotated to the left automatically. I do not understand how that happens. Also when I'm writing a post I'm unable to scroll up or down (to see what I've typed) while the phone keyboard is showing.

·
73
  ·  29 days ago

Hi
Is it for Android or iOS? v1.4.6 has keyboard button on toolbar which you can use to hide keyboard. As for rotated images, probably because of orientation you take photo matters. I am preparing some guide post about how to manage/style your photos with eSteem soon, today or tomorrow will publish that so it can help you to make your photos look even more cooler...

·
·
51
  ·  29 days ago

Mine is an android. The photo orientation is upright. I even rotated it before uploading again, to check if the change made amy difference in the upload. But it remained the same.
I will check for the keyboard.. thank you :)
I can't wait to see the photo styler :)

I am also using both iPhone app and Android app. I have 2 small issue in android.

  1. Please give feature to refresh posts for any specific tag by sliding down it.
  2. When I write long blog using eSteem the cursur getting under the key board. So in able to check what line I am writing and what is writing. The latest blog I have written is using Android one.

Other wise it is beautiful and very useful app.

Also is it possible to add chat facility in the app. ?

I am just providing my feedback to @good-karma to make it more perfect and beautiful.

The eSteem app is very helpful. And I use it a lot and in fact I am writing this comment using eSteem for Android. I never had the issues but the main problem that I face is slow loading time after I choose to see my posts or select the tags. One more problem that I face regularly is that after I write I new post and after successful posting, whenever I try to write another post using the Submit new story option, texts from the previous post appears on the editing applet. I can still write after clearing the text. But it is quite annoying and happens more too often. I hope next update will fix it.

·

I believe the app saves your work until cleared. Thats been my experience

Hey @good-karma, I have become a big fan on this app. Just loving it! I can manage multiple accounts and also I can schedule the posts. That's simply superb! I am continuing to use this and also I am telling my contacts to use this. 👍
Also, is there any way to confirm whether my id is banned/restricted to get auto upvotes?

·
73
  ·  last month

If there was no intentional abuse, no need to worry about being ignored from votes. Also we are taking intermittent pause to get voting power charge up. Thank you for your support! 😉

·
·
47
  ·  last month

Ha ha. Definitely I didn't use the app for intention abuse so my profile shouldn't be banned. But for last many comments and posts I am not getting upvote. So I just had a thought that if I could check if my profile is banned or not. 😉

Well I actually find easier to use steemit simply by going trough google chrome on my phone. I tried the app but I couldn't get used to it. Maybe it's because I started using it on chorme at first.

Thanks for letting me know. Another quick question, how do I enable swipe input method for posting/commenting?

·
·
·
73
  ·  29 days ago

Swipe typing is keyboard or device OS (operating system) related. If you have enabled swipe typing on your device's keyboard settings it should work within app as well.

No, it doesnt stick, but I have root w/a note 7 rom so it may be related to that. I think it detects it as a secured field like a pw field. Thanks for the help.

Hi Cg,
Is it on Steemit.com or eSteem app?

Edit: I just tested out on eSteem it is working as intended. I suppose it is steemit.com/condenser issue, I will tag @roadscape here, confirming that I had experienced it on site yesterday as well...

hi @good-karma i got an issue with the blog styling
thia one is on the eSteem app image


and this one is on the browser ![image]()

or would you please, make some guideline in doing the styling with the app?

·
73
  ·  last month

As you can see app is showing styles correctly. It seem steemit markdown parsing slightly have strict rules. You can edit your post from eSteem and add extra space and new line so they show up correctly on Steemit as well.

·
·
51
  ·  last month

I made my post on the app. but it turn out to be like that on my browser. i have seem someone made a styling like that from the app, but it turn ok both on the app and the browser. does it any connection with the phonr i use?

·
·
·
73
  ·  last month

All posts/comments gets published to Steem blockchain! Steemit.com and eSteem, Busy, other user interfaces only parse that data and give different user experience. Adding extra space and line should help to keep consistency. No, it is not related with phonr.

Yes, if you just using eSteem to post and comment you should receive vote automatically. But it is not guaranteed but long and meaning comments/posts will get vote which gives around $1... ;)

54

I haven't seen that so far. Probably because my usage is mixture of esteem and steemit. ok thanks.

I have loaded the app but haven't logged in yet- have been posting from my laptop. might give it a go now though.

  ·  26 days ago

This incident is the same as I experienced when I post a photo, when I upload is 100%, suddenly failed or error posting my image, but already reached 100%. This incident recurred up to 6 times the upload, so I assume this may be due to signal strength again bad. But the last time I tried again finally succeeded. The more convinced the posting fails is the weakened signal strength that makes the post fail or error. Based on the events I experienced
