moderated "Claim"ing a pending post #suggestion

Malcolm Austen
 

When I select a pending membership from the list, the action drop-down includes a 'claim' action which is great.

However, when viewing pending posts I can see no way to claim one other than by using [Edit] followed by [Cancel]. Can we have a [Claim] button please?

Malcolm.

I have wondered why the two are separate here while most flavors of SQL support multiple types.

I support adding a proper DATETIME column without removing the other two so users don't become upset by any changes.

BTW, SQLShack has a nice post on the subject.

moderated Custom range message filter calendar not fully displayed on a mobile #bug

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

when trying to use a Custom Range filter on the Messages screen on my mobile (Galaxy S7 Edge), the calendar is not displayed correctly. Turning the screen to landscape mode doesn't help either.



Regards
Andy

On a mobile phone there is no filter option (in portrait or landscape) even though there seems to be space to display it.
After playing around with my browser window widths, it seems that the page styling will display the filter button only if the width is sufficient to display the resulting menu (which is, frankly, pretty wide). At least that's the way it seems to be working on this end. If the alternative is to display a button that "does nothing," this behavior may be preferable.
On my Android phone, things like the search box on the member list and the list of hashtags when using the Add Tags during message composition appear in separate windows so I think the same could be done for the new member list filters.

Thank you, Mark, this is a really useful new feature.

I think we all know how unusual it is in the business world generally, and IT specifically, for user-requested changes to be quickly implemented through this kind of dialog. Just more reason to support GIO.


moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

April 8, 2021:

  • DOCS: Updates from Nina.
  • NEW: Each hashtag can now have a footer, which will be included in any message tagged with that hashtag. The footer will also be displayed in the New Post page if the person selects the hashtag from the Add Tags dropdown.

April 7, 2021:

  • NEW: New filter pop-up on the Members page. Discussion

April 6, 2021:

  • INTERNAL: Migrated several machine instances because Linode is retiring old hardware.
  • BUGFIX: In some instances, when editing a repeat event, it would cause all existing RSVPs to be deleted, when it shouldn't have.
  • BUGFIX: Fixed display of the Starts On field when editing a repeating event.
  • CHANGE: The URL structure for individual photos has changed so that the URLs are now stable/refer to photo ids instead of relative placement of the photo in the album.

Take care everyone.

Mark

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
Some observations so far:

  • The font size when entering the hashtag footer text seems smaller than that used in the hashtag name and description.
  • When composing a message online, the extra panel that appears with the hashtag footer text does not show the text in the order of the hashtags in the subject (it may not be an error but it feels wrong).
  • The hashtag footer text strings that appear in an email follow on from each other so you can't tell where the text from one hashtag ends and another starts.
  • There's no way of knowing which text relates to which hashtag (and it seems counter intuitive to have to add the name of the hashtag in the text to achieve that)

Regards
Andy

Right, only one now, so actually an improvement.

Actually, it's only one now, just click Members next to the Filter button.  I suspect most will be wanting to filter anyway, so you can just change the filter options without even going to the full list.

Just wondered if there has been any thoughts on this? Any chance it might happen at some stage?

Please leave it as is. I like being notified about pending memberships whenever I view the membership list. Two extra mouse clicks to view the full list is no big deal.

I like the way it currently works and would like it to stay that way.

I honestly can't see why it should; it's not a new feature and owners & moderators are almost certainly used to it being there.

I agree with your logic and would like to keep it this way.

Found another little bug this morning.  Selecting "Bouncing" also automatically selects NC, but the NC members aren't included on the results page.  If you then go back into the filter box and don't change anything (untick NC), but do click Apply, it then includes NC results.

This has been fixed.
But seems to have created a different one.  After selecting Bouncing and Apply, the list shows them correctly.  The number at the upper right says 1-4 of 4 as it should.  Below the list, it says -1 selected.  This throws off the number displayed there (when selecting) by -1.  If I go ahead and send a bounce probe, the confirmation box matches the actual number selected.

In addition, if I use the box to select all, it also shows all the boxes in the filter drop down as checked if I open it.  If I close it and open it again, it only shows Bouncing.

Thanks,
Duane

I don't know how this may affect any subsequent activity performed using the Actions menu.
