Re: Files recently uploaded are not found when you do a word search from the Files area. #bug

Christos G. Psarras
 

I can confirm the same issue, regardless of extension, albeit in my case the old vs new distinction is not as clear, i.e. I can search for the keyword that exists in two TXT files but only one is returned and in a particular case it finds a newer one, but (and it may be a clue), the newer one that is found was updated at some point in time.

It almost sounds to me like a search index needs rebuilding or something.

Cheers,
Christos

Thanks Mark,

If you try to access a restricted table by the URL it now just displays a blank screen. An error message of some description would be nice :-)

Hi Mark,

it seems that setting View Table permissions to 'Moderators and the Table Owner' does not stop a member viewing the table if they have the URL that contains the table id.

Or, like me, you're dealing with email overload.

Anyway, I rechecked with this moderator and she no longer sees the "create/edit" button on the hashtags page. So although the mystery isn't solved I'm going to assume the problem is.

Thank you all for helping me with this!

Files recently uploaded are not found when you do a word search from the Files area. #bug

I have done sufficient testing with PDF files and .txt files to be certain that text indexing that happened to old files is no longer happening with new files. 

Discussed in GMF at https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/topic/76990562

I am the owner of a group used for a condo association. The group was started on 03/19/19 so is grandfathered in to have more features than newly created groups.  We have stored files in folders in the file section, including folder for "Board Minutes" with sub folders for each year.  Board minutes are stored as "Print to PDF" files and are searchable.
 
I open a PDF file that was uploaded last year and find an uncommon word in it.
I search for the word using the PDF reader and it is found.
I search for the word using the groups.io Files/Search and the file shows up in the results

I upload a new file (created from Print to PDF from MS Word) with the word "abracadabra" in it.
I search for the word abracadabra using the groups.io Files/Search and the file does not show up in the results.

I have a number of emails going back to last Wednesday that still have not emailed out to members. I have provided support with the message ID numbers. Should we do a new support ticket?

Thank you

Thanks Mark. I know the ICS stuff has been a game a Whack-A-Mole for you.

Thanks Bruce.  good call, but I've already tried that.  The requirements list is coincidently one that was renamed, but the generation of new subscriptions has not resolved the problem.  Also there are numerous lists that have not changed since the original port to Gio over 2 years ago are also impacted by the same behavior.

I am sorry about the bugs you're experiencing. The ICS file spec is not my favorite. I have fixed the escaping issue that was causing GCal to not parse that file. It now parses it correctly. You will notice that it doesn't load 2 of the events into the Google calendar. I'm still researching that; it's because the two events have the same UID, but I don't yet know how that happened, if it's normal, and what to do about it.

FollowTopic Yes or No page doesn't obey No #bug

Christos G. Psarras
 

Hi Mark,

If one group's settings is FollowingOnly and they click on the Follow This Topic link at the footer of an emailed message from the group, as expected they are taken to the Follow this Yes/No page (which btw still uses "thread" instead of "topic").

If one clicks on No there however, it does the same thing as Yes does, adds it to your FollowedTopics list and lands you in the FollowedTopics page.

Cheers,
Christos

If you change the name of a group/subgroup that also affects the feed address. You will have to click the Subscribe to Calendar button again to get a new GIO feed and re-sub that to the Google calendar.

Does that help?

I am not aware of any way to go in the other direction (i.e.: subscribe a Google calendar to groups.io). Others more knowledgeable than I am may have ideas.

Bruce

Peter -- Well, now I'm just being dumb.

Apparently, my Owner account was actually moderated in my test group. I must have left it that way from some previous test I was doing. So it actually did go into moderation for that reason, and the log entry was correct.

What actually happens [under normal circumstances] is that incoming emails with new hashtags, when sent by Moderators/Owners, override the group hashtag setting -- going directly into the message base and generating those two log entries -- without any further intervention by anybody.

If you haven't given this person the permission to create new hashtags this certainly does seem like a way to circumvent that.

As I said before, I'd prefer that Moderator/Owner posts be treated no differently from Member posts in this regard.

Duh.

FILES-Search, UPLOADED criteria sort is using incorrect date field for either sorting or displaying the results #bug

Christos G. Psarras
 

Hi Mark,

I searched and found that you mentioned in the July 24 site updates change log that "BUGFIX: Fixed sorting of Files section search results."
https://beta.groups.io/g/main/topic/75779771

Apparently the problem has reappeared. (along with a separate FILES keyword search problem not finding files that are there but that will be in a separate message)

The Upload sort order must be using some other date field for the sorting, because it doesn't sort them correctly, in either ASC or DESC order; or it actually does sort them correctly, but it displays a different (DateUpdated?) field date which results in the list showing like it's not sorted correctly, something to that effect, see attached.

It only happens when the search box is being used, it sorts them correctly if it's not.

Cheers,
Christos



Re: Email delivery issues #update

 

Hi All,

We are caught up with email delivery.

Thanks, Mark


Re: Email delivery issues #update

 

Hi All,

As you've hopefully noticed, email has started to flow again. We have quite a backlog to work through, however, so it will take some time before we're caught up. I believe I've stabilized things. No email was lost, and the problem didn't affect any other part of the service.

I will post at least one more time in this topic when we're fully caught up with the backlog. And, probably tomorrow, I will post a #postmortem detailing what happened and what changes I'll be making.

Thanks, Mark

Re: Moderator created new hashtag without permission #bug

Peter Cook
 

Folks, I apologize - I misinterpreted what happened. The moderator in question actually added the new hashtag via the group website before posting the message.

However, there is still a mystery: As I said, her hashtag permission does not allow her to do that. I thought perhaps I had revoked this permission after this happened - but according to the activity log the last time her permissions were changed was before she created the hashtag. I'll investigate further.
