It does not.

Yes, as a normal post status changed activity.

 
3.  Is there a way for the owner/moderator to know how many posts remain for a member before the status change occurs?

Not currently. I could add that. Where should it go?

It would sometimes be convenient to send the same message to more than one member, particularly after sorting the list by some relevant column. So having "Send Message" as an option in the Actions menu makes sense to me.

I augmented the existing post to member functionality to support this. Let me know if you see any issues.

locked Muted hashtags question

Duane
 

I do all my group "stuff" online. I've tried muting a few hashtags. On the All page, https://groups.io/threads, those threads show up in the list. Is this the intended operation or should they be hidden there? I think the mute function is mainly intended to avoid sending emails, but it would be nice if it also hid them on the All page. I think I could go to the specific group and still view the threads, if needed.

Thanks,
Duane

I can delete a description by selecting it all, hitting a single space, then click Update. Not as intuitive as just selecting and deleting, but it works. This doesn't leave a blank line where the description would be. A quick "fix" until Mark has time to make an update.

locked can't delete "description" of a file or file folder #bug

 

Removing the description from a file or file folder doesn't work.

What does work:

1. Editing a description of a file or a file folder, as long as you don't completely delete it - this works fine.

2. Uploading a file, or creating a folder, with no description to begin with - this also works fine.

What doesn't work:

Removing an existing description from a file or folder.

(This is completely reproducible. But for reference, right now I would like to remove the word "test" from the file "What to Expect" in the group Feline_Smallcell_Lymphoma, and it won't go away.)

locked Re: Disable RSS Feeds for a Member suggestion

 

dg,

Okay - still not sure what the big deal of it is -
It isn't really a big deal. But if you're a member of a lot of low-activity groups, or like to read a lot of blogs, it can be handy to set up all their feeds in a reader or aggregator, and thereby get a single digest that contains any recent messages from all those different sources.

RSS wouldn't really be appropriate, in my opinion, for keeping up with a very busy email list. For that a conventional digest from that list is probably the better choice.

but it sounds like the answer for the OP is to tell the member to just
not enable it?
I'm not sure, but Mark may have addressed the actual question.

One of the available Integrations in a group is to post messages from an RSS feed (or maybe more than one). For example, if I had a blog where I post major articles, I could integrate its RSS feed to my group. This would cause a "blurb" (digest) of the article to be posted in the group whenever I make a new blog post. That might be appropriate if the blog and the group are on the same topic, and it might be a better way of having a user community comment on your blog than using the blog service's comment mechanism.

So if the OP's group has such an integration, then there may have been a member hoping to not receive the RSS "blurbs". Muting the #feed hashtag would be a solution for that.

dg,

I'm seriously old tech - and have never quite gotten what,
exactly, an "RSS feed" is.
Rich Site Summary (aka Really Simple Syndication) - it is a mechanism for new web page postings (primarily from blogs, but also messages from groups with public archives) to be delivered to you in a simple digest form.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS

If I am getting an "RSS feed" from Beta - what is it and
where is it going?
RSS is something you must set up in an RSS reader, or aggregator service, or other software. If you haven't done that, then you aren't getting one.

For what it's worth, Yahoo Groups once supported RSS feeds for groups with public archives, but that seems to have been lost with the Neo redesign.
http://web.archive.org/web/20130410111215/http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/GroupManagersForum/
There's a small orange RSS badge just above the message history table. If you have the Sage plug-in to Firefox (or another browser-based RSS reader) you can click that badge to see the digest of that group, at that time.

I'm seriously old tech - and have never quite gotten what,

If I am a member of a group (beta), I have a choice of
email, digest, special notices, nomail (I think - I get
email, so that's the only one I know for sure.).

If I am getting an "RSS feed" from Beta - what is it and
where is it going?

If it is simply a notification - FB and Twit allow me to
turn notifications on or off per person (and "thread").
Plus my phone allows me to turn off notifications (and
assume any android phone does - and i or w phones or
tablets).

If it is more than a notification - then I would hope
it would follow the email choice options.

IOW, I agree that if a member is wanting to go noRSS
they could, just like noMail.

In Gmail, you can click at the top of a message to be able to collapse it. I think that would be a very useful feature that allows you to navigate through a thread faster.

Yep, I figured that out when it happened. So I think I'm going to wait before inviting people to come who haven't got that much tech savvy.

Please remember to send me an invite from your test group, so I can see what it's like to join by invitation.

Which is a bug Ella Yu? (1) Not being redirected to the Edit Subject page, or (2) No info visible on the Edit Subject page about what hashtags are available?

Subject: [beta] #hashgtags email #suggestion

I set my test group to require hashtags.

In another, not-logged in, browser,I sent an email without a hashtag in the subject to my test group using my non-moderator test email address.

Two things:

(1)Since my test email address had not yet registered a password, clicking on the link I was sent to edit the subject, resulted in being redirected to the Please Sign In page. This is correct. I clicked on "Forgot password or don't have password". This went as expected. However, after I had registered I was not redirected back to the page for editing the subject and I could not find that page from the menu selections available to me. My suggestion is to, if at all possible, redirect back to the editing subject page if the users had to register before editing. Either that, or make navigating back to that page easy and obvious.

(2) I eventually went back to the email and clicked on the link in it again. When I started typing in a hashtag I realised that I didn't actually know which hashtags were available. and there is no dropdown on that page showing me what existing ones are. Is there some combination of group settings that does make a hashtag dropdown or something similar visible? If not, my suggestion is to provide some mechanism on that page for the user to see available hashtags.

Regards

Green
