Check out these bad search results:

https://beta.groups.io/g/main/newsearch?q=edit

And things sometimes get worse if you put quotes around the search term (i've had cases where with the quotes, nothing comes back at all, even though occurrences exist).

Hi All,

The site was off-line from 2:02pm through 2:38pm. The process that sends email ran out of memory when a large number of large email digests were sent. As it ran out of memory, it would cause the machine to reboot. This machine also runs our load balancer, which is responsible for distributing incoming email and web traffic. With this machine rebooting constantly, the site was effectively off-line.

After evaluating the options, I decided that the quickest way to get back on-line was to upgrade that machine to an instance with substantially more memory. The majority of downtime was caused by that upgrade. Once the upgrade was complete, the machine came back on-line and is currently processing the backlog of messages.

If you'll recall, a similar thing happened a few months ago. I thought I had made changes to the software to prevent this from happening again. Guess not. So I will be looking at that. I will also be moving the load balancer off of this machine and onto its own dedicated machine.

Thanks,

moderated in groups with "remove other reply options," don't remove them for moderators #suggestion

 

Just as in groups with editing disabled, yet moderators can still edit posts, it would be convenient if in a group with "remove other reply options" set, moderators could still have the other options. Sometimes I want to reply privately to a member's post (my group is set to "reply to group" with the other options disabled), but that currently entails having to go into the activity log (to click on the member who sent the post) or members list (likewise) to find the member page and then use "send message."

moderated Updates to Trello

main@beta.groups.io Integration <main@...>
 

[Beta] New card "Split topic doesn't work with the last message depending on sort order." was added to list "Bugs".


[Beta] The red label "Bug" was added to the card "Split topic doesn't work with the last message depending on sort order.".


[Beta] The description of card "Split topic doesn't work with the last message depending on sort order." was changed to:

I've noticed a glitch when trying to split a message to a new thread. I normally sort with newest first and it won't allow me to split the top (last) post. It looks like it would allow me to split the last on a page (Split is in the More menu), but that would be the first in the topic which wouldn't make any sense. I suspect that the first item on the page can't be split instead of the first item in the topic. It was probably set up that way before reverse sort was available.


moderated Re: Reporting editor problems

 

Hi All,

Quick update. Thanks to some detailed bug reports, I think I have fixed the problem with blockquotes and replies to messages. And for editing wiki pages, I've switched the editor's behavior back to using P tags when hitting the enter key, which I think should fix any problems there.

There is a bug in the editor when it's in the single line per enter key mode and the existing text has P tags. I have submitted a bug report to the developers with an example of this problem. I'm not sure if/when they will fix it, but I think my changes have addressed the problems people have been seeing with the new editor.

I still need to figure out why the editor is slow for some people.

Thanks,
Mark

Hi, Mark.

Here's Martin's latest response. It's sounds like it's largely improved, but still some issues.

Everett

=====================================================================
Okay, so lets give it another try ...
Here we go happily typing ahead and atail and it still works. I would not have expected a slowdown at this low character or word count here.
So lets type and type and type and see whether my fingers will start to hurt before they start to bleed and then I will send the hospital bill to the Groups.Io managers for compensation.
... deleted some of this four letter stuff ... see later down
Now MS-Word tells me that I have about 1500 words or 6000 characters, which should be good for a usual long and winding reply.
I also do a few copy/delete/insert operations to see what happens. I also do a few copy/delete/insert operations to see what happens. I also do a few copy/delete/insert operations to see what happens.
Indeed there is still a slight slowdown at this point while typing. but as this message is extraordinary long it is not as annoying as before.

There seems to be more lagging behind when I move the cursor, i.e. just by using the arrow/cursor keys or CTRL+arrow to jump over words.
The cursor movement is fine when just performing a single cursor key or CTRL+cursor key press, but when hitting e.g. the LEFT arrow quickly 5 times in a row, I see each individual cursor movement appearing with an rate of about 1/10 second. If I keep the key down (no individual key presses) the cursor moves as fast as expected without any noticeable lagging. Maybe there is a repeat rate somewhere to adjust? BTW: All this in HTML mode.

Out of curiosity I have deleted most of the crap above so that I am now down to about 300 words or 1300 characters and the slowdown does not go away.
Is there a leak in that old memory boat? Also: double-clicking a word does not select the word anymore. Tried fast and slow double-clicking.
=====================================================================


moderated Re: option to change passwords

 

Ronaldo,

and what on earth is the "delete password" button for?
If you delete, or have never set, your password you still have three other means to log in:

o Email me a link to log in
o Log in with Facebook
o Log in with Google

Arguably your account is more secure if it does not have a password. Passwords are vulnerable. They may be revealed through a data breach, by phishing, or by guessing. Past data breaches have shown that a shocking number of people use easily guessed passwords, or the same password for multiple services.

In your account Login page you can control whether Facebook or Google login is allowed. If you disable them then you have only Email login.

The security of your account then depends only on keeping your email secure - which is the one unavoidable risk: if you had a password email would be how you reset it.
