Sorry, partially answering my own question. I think I will wait for the Subscription Options page to be finalized. 

Anything else for unsophisticated users? My Groups.io doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles yet - just a couple of files.


locked Migrating to Groups.io?

Frances
 

I was wondering whether Groups.io was ready for moving my small group from YahooGroups. I know that there are groups already on Groups.io. My only concern is whether the typical navigation and labels are set now. Some of my family members who are part of the group are easily spooked by changes! However for basic use - sending, receiving - that's pretty set now, right?

- Added a back button in the add/view event pages to return to the calendar set to the correct month

Have a good weekend everybody!

Minor problem with this one. We have an event set in April. I click on the event to see it, then hit the back button. I go back to March. I think the problem comes in because the "remembered" location is the top left box of the calendar. The back button works fine for Feb & Mar because they start on the 1st. I think using the box at the left of the 2nd row would always return to the correct month. May be easier to program than looking for the 1st of the month.  Maybe even easier to use the top right box?

Also just noticed that if I click Add Event, then change my mind and use Back, it goes to today instead of the month I was looking at.

Thanks,
Duane

Sorry about the multiple edits.  Gotta start making notes and wait for things to gel before posting. ;>)

I don't understand Added back 'Insert Quoted Message' functionality.

I don't see this at all.
It only works for plain text or Markdown at this point. Opening a reply gives a button below that says "Insert Quoted Message". selecting that puts the message being replied to at the top of the message so one can delete those parts not wanted and reply in the text to other segments.

TESTING REPLY & RETURN TO POST REPLIED TO:
Ok, I tried it with a recent post, and it worked, but my post I was replying to was on the same page, (most current one).

Now I'm trying it with a message 7 days old.

It's not currently available. I don't know how that'd work via email.
Going through a *lot* of back mail, and testing every list that
I can find, from email, apparently if the "Reply To" field is
set to go to the poster (which means "Reply" goes to the poster,
not the list), then "Reply All" will include the list if the
list is the "To" field.

This is a ygroup - but I checked other ygroups, and none of
them got more than the list with Reply All.

I do also know that if the poster has set their outgoing
message with "Reply To" filled in, on some lists (LSoft
for sure, and I think Lyris and MailMan) when you set up
the list, you can choose to have all replies go to the
list (override any Reply-To value sent in), always to
the poster (add a Reply-To value of the From value in
all cases), or only insert a Reply-to if the poster has
not set one.

At any rate - if you try inserting a "Reply-To" value in
the headers of messages (as they come in, I suspect) I
think email clients will choose that for Reply, and that
plus 'To' plus 'CC' for Reply All.

I *thought* I remembered a list where Reply went to the
list, but Reply All included the From or Sender. I'm
not finding that in the messages in my inbox at the moment,
though.

Hope this makes sense - not much sleep last night.

Anyway, I don't see anything else to click on other than the Actions button. But, when I click on Actions, the drop down menu doesn't give any option to promote her to owner let alone moderator.

What I would like to know is if there is a different way to do it other than what is in the FAQs for Groups.io?

The symbols that appeared at the bottom of your post formed the letters KKT in Morse.

They seem to be something produced by Groups IO; they only appear occasionally and on posts from various people.

Both K and T are used at the end of an "over", i.e., as an invitation to transmit.

I don't know if that choice of characters had anything to do with Morse code or not, but something similar[1] has long been used in Yahoo Groups' outbound messages as a delimiter for the footer material in HTML formatted messages. They are styled as white text on white so that they are not normally seen.

They provide something that can be automatically detected and trimmed on inbound messages; so that when members reply with full untrimmed quotes the footers don't stack up. Apparently Groups.io uses them too, which is probably no big surprise. In plain text messages Groups.io has a pair of rows of hypens and equal signs, probably put to the same purpose.

The only mystery might be how they came to be visible in someone's post. That may have to do with a conversion between HTML and plain text somewhere.

It's not currently available. I don't know how that'd work via email.  

Also, is there an option to have replies go only to list owner and moderators? We use that for one group which only really needs to have minimal volume. Everyone gets the notice and only the people who can assist at that time need to get back to the listowner to confirm their availability.

Good idea. I just added that to the site.

 
A separate issue: what's the current character limit on user names? Currently on Wiggio, I can add people and include their full name plus organization they're with so when they post messages, the group can easily identify them. It's important for us to have that as it saves some questions back and forth in our network and cuts down on email volume.

Realistically, there's no limit (I mean, there is, but you shouldn't bump into it). 

 
When they post messages, this comes through in the FROM field of the email:
FirstName LastName OrganizationSTATE <groupname@...>
 
If you invite them like that, and they post from the web site, their messages will come through like that. If they post via email, whatever name their email client is configured to use will come through. I'm guessing, but I don't think people would like us to muck with that.

Thanks,
Mark
