moderated Items per page reverts to Infinite scroll in membership list on mobile device #bug

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

if my preferences are set to display either 20, 50 or 100 items per page, when I scroll down my membership list I momentarily see the next page options but then the next 'n' items are loaded as though I have Infinite Scroll set.

Regards
Andy


moderated Mobile display menu bar obscures Action button dropdown options #bug

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

when viewing RSVP responders and trying to use the Action button options on my mobile phone found, I found that the bottom menu bar obscures some of the Action button options. I've tried Firefox and Chrome. In Firefox, the menu bar is not even anchored to the bottom of the screen:




I've seen the menu bar jump around in Firefox mobile for a while but until now, it hasn't stopped me from doing what I needed.  In Chrome, the menu bar is at the bottom of the screen so it covers different Action button options:

Andy

Hi Mark,

I went to claim a pending message previously claimed by my co-owner and noticed the No/Yes buttons are not aligned on the confirmation pop-up:

moderated Clarify text on RSVP events buttons #suggestion

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

The text on the RSVP 'Will Attend' and 'Will Not Attend' buttons is confusing once a response has been made and if no guests are allowed:



Use of the word 'Update' in this case makes no sense and causes confusion. The fact that the button is blue shows that it is already the selected option so what are you updating?

If guests are allowed however, it does make more sense as you can change the number:



Can we include the 'Update' prefix only if guests are allowed?

Regards
Andy

Christos -- Using anything on the groups.io site is problematic. To be retrievable even by webmail, the image URL must be visible to the world.

1) Images in the group's Photos section don't have stable URLs, so you can't really use that.
2) If the image was stored in the Files area, the recipient would still have to logged in to gain access to it.
3) Non-members cannot access group content at all, so the image couldn't be used for -- say -- an Invite or Pending Subscription notice.

Still, it would really be nice to be able to include a logo or a screenshot or anything of that nature. In my case, I placed the linked images in a folder on our [separate] public web site. I have to remember why they're there, and be sure not to delete/move/rename them. Even that doesn't work if the person reading the received email doesn't happen to be connected to the internet at the time.

For all these reasons I'd like to be able to just embed the image in the outgoing message.

Regards,
Bruce


moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

February 19th, 2021

  • BUGFIX: Modal buttons on the edit wiki page were the incorrect colors. Discussion.
  • BUGFIX: The RSS feeds for groups without titles now have the title set to the URL of the group.
  • INTERNAL: Some HTML cleanup.

February 18th, 2021

  • BUGFIX: The Subgroups tab under Admin in the group sidebar would not display as active when clicked on.
  • INTERNAL: Second pass at bundling CSS and JS files.
  • BUGFIX: In some cases event times in the Feed view were not displayed in the correct timezone. Also, the user's date formatting was not observed. Discussion.

February 17th, 2021

  • INTERNAL: First pass at bundling CSS and JS files. This will speed up web page rendering but more importantly is needed to support the app.

February 15th, 2021

  • CHANGE: On the edit subscription, group member and group default subscription pages, made it so that incompatible changes to Email Delivery and Message Selection are changed immediately on the page, instead of when the changes are saved. An example: setting Email Delivery to No Email and then Message Selection to Following Only will immediately change the Email Delivery radio button to Individual Messages. Discussion.

Take care everyone.

Mark

Ohh, I learned something new today, didn't realize you could trick it like that.   I now notice the source code button being there in the expanded toolbar, I never bothered to expand it because the image buttons were not there.

True, diligence would be needed.  What could help reduce the chance of it happening is using group storage in this case, a link from your Files (that's what I did with our groups so this way the graphics could be reused in the wiki -or elsewhere- without the "AddNew" duplication), or, if no Files, sent an email to the group with the graphic, lock the topic, then use the URL groups.io is using for that file, as that won't/shouldn't change since emails went out with it.

I had a few (maybe 5 or 6) non-members, people who had never heard of Groups.io, asking me as group owner to cease sending them messages, but not recently. I think they were all Y! mail users, and the group member whose messages they were getting was also a Y! mail address. (It might have been another provider, not Y**oo!)

My workround at the time was to apologise, explain, set the innocent group member whose messages were being diverted to "daily summary" rather than individual messages, and send a message to that group member to say what I'd done and why. In each case the complaints then stopped -- and the daily summary meant that if the messages did go outside the group, only their subject lines were revealed, not their contents.

You may or may not find a similar response to be helpful.

My bad. I should have mentioned that the footer unsubscribe edress is not his, at least on the emails he copied to me - so I suspect none had his. 
Unfortunately I don’t have the originals otherwise I’d check the routing.  He’s a little like pulling teeth but hopefully it has ended otherwise I’ll press him for more and dig deeper. 


I have seen instances of emails sent to one address then being forwarded to other, unrelated addresses. I do not know why someone would do something like that. Please send me off-list the email address that's in the footer and I will disable it.

Thanks,
Mark

That's the work-around that I'm currently using, and it works, if you know html and are willing to edit in source code mode.

If course, if you ever delete or move the image at the source, it leaves a dead link in your Member Notice.

Ken,

A member reports that this week he’s received several emails from
groups to which he’s not subscribed
Have him look in the message footer, next to the Unsubscribe link. That shows the email address to which that message was sent.

If it shows his address, then most likely he is subscribed to the group in question, because this can't happen by any kind of forwarding or misdirection of the message.

If it shows an unknown address then a detailed look at the message's header fields (specifically the chain of Received and maybe X-Received fields) may reveal how the message ended up in his Inbox.

Is there a systemic bug going on here?
Maybe. There were a bunch of reports in GMF of AOL users receiving misdirected groups.io messages, not recently though.

moderated Wiki EditPage, the Save/Delete dialog have the button placement and color reversed #bug

 

Hi Mark,

A minor UI one, in the wiki EditPage screen, the "Verify Save"/"Very delete" dialog has the Yes & Cancel button placement and color reversed.

I assume that forwarding is not what’s happening in your case.
No.  I mean, Yes.
I mean, forwarding is not what's happening to him.  :-)

Strange indeed.

That’s very weird. I know that sometimes, people forward me emails from other cats groups if they think I can offer insight into the cat’s illness. But I assume that forwarding is not what’s happening in your case.

it would be handy to be able to put images in Member Notices, as we already can for regular messages.

I have not given thorough consideration as to how to manage the associated storage.

Thanks for your consideration,
