moderated Folder-level public access to files and photos #suggestion

Bruce Bowman
 

On a note related to J's comment on wiki pages, I'd like to allow public (non-subscriber) access to select photo and file folders. This would be handy if I want to reference a photo on the site in, say, an <img> tag on the home page, or to include a link to our membership application in a Pending Subscription notice. As it is, if you're not both subscriber and logged in, those links will be broken.

There is some security risk, if you will, in having this option available for ALL such folders...check the wrong box and suddenly everybody in the world can get at stuff that maybe you didn't intend them to. At this time I envision one Public Folder in each area, in the vein of the existing Emailed Photos folder. Those with Moderator privileges or above could drop files and photos here, while the public (and subscribers) could only access them. Owners who would like to enable this feature would need to check a box to that effect in the Settings.

Not exactly a must-have kind of thing, but it would have been handy for me on more than one occasion. 

Thanks,
Bruce

Personally, I have a bigger problem of people hijacking other people's threads, forcing me to engage in a split-and-merge frenzy. An option of this nature would not only fail to fix that problem, but actually encourage subscribers to do it.

Please count me as one vote in the "nay" category.

Non,

CSV is comma separated values. Not semi-colons.

It sounds like you're looking for a forum type system, strictly (or mostly) web based. We're probably not the right solution for you.

You may well be right, a forum but one you can post to via emails.
An option to send emails in the form of the digest option (which does not have user email addresses) would be marvellous.

The Comma "," is the standard delimiter although other delimiters can optionally be supported.  see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma-separated_values
"In computing, a comma-separated values (CSV) file is a delimited text file that uses a comma to separate values"
I see no benefit in supporting others.

moderated Re: Line break to messages

Benoît Dumeaux
 

After the Y!G transfert I have lot of message with problem of line break.

Can I find a speed solution for format the message. A Line Break Removal Tool could be add to edit function

Like this
https://www.textfixer.com/tools/remove-line-breaks.php

You can remove line breaks from blocks of text but preserve paragraph breaks with this tool.

If you've ever received text that was formatted in a skinny column with line breaks at the end of each line, like text from an email or copy and pasted text from a PDF column with spacing, word wrap, or line break problems then this tool is pretty darn handy.

You also have the option of just removing all line breaks without preserving paragraph breaks (usually double line breaks).

Use this tool because spending hours manually removing line breaks sucks if you're pasting content from something like a PDF with a weird text format where the word wrap and abrupt line break is causing problems then this tool will help you.

PS. If anyone is interested I have a short technical code article on how to remove line breaks with javascript.

We've noticed another minor glitch on an Event.  On an all day or multi-day event, the hover text on the Calendar includes the day after the final day in the When section.

I suggest using periods instead of slashes there because I've seen that usage in some documents from Europe (specifically German) and that would make the display of the date unambiguous no matter who is looking at it.

DD.MM.YYYY
-----
This one is perfect because the month-first-version is truly confusing for most Europeans. And periods are good although everybody would understand slashes as well.

What I do not understand is: in messages I still see am and pm although I changed my settings to the 24 hour version, and as far as dates are concerned at the moment I still see June 23 and not 06/23.

moderated Wiki pages selectively accessible to non-members #suggestion

 

I have a vague memory that this may already have been suggested: it would be very helpful if public access to wiki pages could be on an individual page basis, rather than the whole wiki or none.

Dave,

In Europe (where the vast majority of our members are) there is no
confusion - the first number is always the day.
That's a non-sequitur. My question is whether DD.MM.YYYY would be an acceptable alternative to DD/MM/YYYY?

DD.MM.YYYY
MM/DD/YYYY

While it is true that the individual member would know which way they set their own preference, I'm thinking of situations where people copy/paste or screenshot examples for posting in groups with international membership - or are posting to support.

I believe this third option would create confusion as to whether the first entry was the month or the day. To avoid this ambiguity I believe the ISO standard is by far the best way to go, with the existing MM/DD/YYYY retained for legacy purposes only.

I agree that it would be nice if site login was implemented as a popup of some kind that subsequently refreshed the page you are already on.

moderated login refresh the page I am already on

 

Hi,


it would be nice if login wouldn´t move me to another page but subsequently refresh the page I am already on. It always looks like a detour.

Same for joining a group. Instead of being led to another page during the joining procedure it would be nice if prospective members could stay on the page of the group they want to join. I was told some get confused especially if their English isn´t really sufficient to understand what´s going on.

We in the UK would never ever set dates to MM/DD/YYYY. The only other
option I see is YYYY-MM-DD, not DD-MM-YYYY. Any chance of adding
DD/MM/YYYY as I don't particularly like the YYYY-MM-DD format?
