moderated Cannot change cover photo #bug

John C
 

I can't seem to be able to change the cover photo on my group: https://groups.io/g/o14/coverphoto

I have tried a jpeg and png - the size is 681x489. I am allowed to select the file to upload and it changes the displayed file name but doesn't update the displayed photo. I've tried on both Chrome and Safari. There are no console error messages shown under dev tools.

moderated wrong navigation from past members list (goes back to members list) #bug

 

After doing something in a past member's record and saving, you're taken not back to the past members list but to the members list. So to go back into the record you have to manually navigate to the past members list again.

Members can only edit their own posts (mods/owners can edit any post), so this may not be needed.

Thank you Bruce.

Your thoughts solved my dilemma. I'll lock the post, so only I can edit.  Prevent mishaps. I know only click the other button from now on.

People can private message me changes instead.

Mo -- By this, I assume you mean that you have the "No Email" checkbox checked on this hashtag.

I created a confidential post that needed to stay online only, its needed to stay inside the group.  I was editing and saving loads.  The last save I did was "save and send to group" as I was to lazy to click "Save and not send to group".  As the tags are configure to not email - I expected it to not be sent.  But it did and now its appearing in daily summeries on further edits.
If an Owner/Moderator chooses to override the hashtag setting by clicking "Save and Send to Group" -- even by accident -- I don't consider that to be a bug.

Is that a "known" behaviour that I have interupted wrong? 
It was certainly not known to me!

Or something owners can do.  Just worried users could edit - then send post outside which are marked online only.
From my cursory testing, it does seem that Members are also able to circumvent a hashtag's "No Email" setting by editing their own message. In fact, "Save and Send to Group" is the only option available.

So this does seem like a bug, but I don't know how best to squash it. For now I'll just throw out idea of prohibiting Members from editing messages associated with a No Email hashtag.

Regards,
Bruce

I've revamped the groups search page a bit
It now works as I would expect it to. Excellent. Appreciate it.

However, I think you could improve the interaction with the row of letters across the bottom. That was a nice feature when the group count was in the 100s but not so useful when result sets are in the thousands.

I suggest treating selecting a letter as an additional filter on the initial letter of the group name "anded" with whatever filters have been applied to the display result set. Also retain the sort order of the set prior to "anding" in the initial letter filter. You could also add 0-9 buttons for group names that start with a numeral.
Best, Marv

Hi,

First, when hovering over an event in the calendar view, we display the time in the user's local timezone. But we also displayed the event's (possibly different) timezone. That's confusing and doesn't make much sense. I've removed the timezone display in the hover.
Thanks Mark! That was also on my, "I need to report this" list. :-)

Whoops. Should be fixed now. I'm making a lot of internal changes for the app, and in this case, I indeed missed a server-side include.

Thanks,

The Directory page is no longer displaying the blue menu bar at the top of the page. Looks like a missing server-side #include.

In addition, those using infinite scroll are reporting an inability to navigate beyond the first screen.

It’s not a matter of negating terms (which would be more complicated than what I’m suggesting anyway). Sometimes the search term is included in the group description to say “ we do not discuss [search term] in this group.” I gave several examples in those prior threads. And sometimes it’s thrown in at the end of a long laundry list of possible but rarely discussed topics (I gave examples of those, too). Sometimes, you just want to see groups about golf. Or whatever. There’s no problem with this feature as long as it’s just an option at the time of the search.

I think a group name search is too discriminatory. Many groups have names that don't describe topics vital to their interest but who would otherwise be fully relevant to the search.

Filtering of non-wanted words can be handled now with negated search terms. Compare the search results for:

cars american

and

cars -american

Of course, this would negatively (no pun) impact those groups who use the "we do not discuss X" type of language. They could be the victim of the double negative (i.e., "no american" in the description and "-american" in the search). But that has to be a pretty tiny subset of groups.
