Speaking of Delete Group,

I'm still hoping you'll separate this command in the Moderator list soon:

Modify Group Settings Or Delete Group

I need to have moderators capable of dealing with settings, but I don't want to give anyone else the right to delete the group.


How about if I change it so that Delete Group isn't a privilege, it's just something that only group owners can do (not moderators)?

Thanks,
Mark

Oddly, I checked two other groups I belong to. I am owner of one and moderator of the other. In both in View Original, I can see the full email address. I cannot see that in Beta where I am simply a member. The email address in Beta is truncated in View Original.

Thanks for the reply, Donna. Perhaps I should have made it more clear. I've been working Beta from the web page, and my thought was a way to reply from the web page. The web page seems to truncate all addresses except in a plain text reply with quoted message. I have no problem with that. I just thought there might be a quick way to do it.

I suppose an easy way to do it is to highlight and copy the poster's email address.  Well, that might not be the easiest way; but, for me it would work.  I read all of the messages in my email inbox.  Since I'm already there, it would be pretty easy to just highlight/copy/paste.

There certainly is using email, there doesn't appear to be from the

Thanks Laurence - I see it now. If one just looks at "View Original", the addresses are all truncated, but if one starts a new message using plain text and invokes "Insert Quoted Message", the full address is there. From that, I can take the address to my email.

I notice the email address gets truncated again when the plain text message is sent to the group.

locked No returns in Welcome message

More playing this morning. I noticed that the Welcome message was one long paragraph instead of the 7 distinct sections that it should be. The Goodbye was also one block instead of 2. I think this was a problem in the past that got fixed, but seems to have reverted.

Thanks,
Duane

Hi,
On the site, when you "view original" (lower right of archived message) the From info pertains to the posting member.

On moderated lists, reply to the message attached to the emailed pending notification.

locked Re: Possible bug?

 

Mark,

However, I have also changed it so that when you click on the
unsubscribe link, you are asked to verify that you wish to unsubscribe
(in other words one click becomes two clicks). I did this because I
found evidence in the logs that at least a couple people are behind a
firewall or some other system that automatically clicks on every link in
the emails they receive.
...
(addendum: doing some quick sleuthing, it may be that some
accessibility/screen reading software is responsible for this. I'm
reaching out to the people I see in the logs that have had this happen
to them to get more information.)
Maybe a tad off-topic, but... Yikes?

That sounds like an open door to an exploit site. But I suppose if whatever is fetching the pages is careful with the content (isn't simply passing it to an HTML parser) there's less chance of a nasty surprise. Still, the whole concept that my reader would go out and access content from unknown sites without my express say-so would make me very nervous.

This was my fear when I did the one click unsubscribe. I had done some
research beforehand about this and all I read said that this wouldn't be
a problem.
As I read Google's guidelines it seems that a confirmation click is acceptable.

I appreciate the bug fix, but perhaps a clarification was in order. I did mention this to Support but not here.
Sorry for any confusion caused.


I do believe that in at least some cases, accessibility software is causing all the links in an email to be clicked, which would cause this behavior (seeing a message saying you've been unsubscribed, and then they're magically subscribed again). The verification click should put a stop to this.

Thanks,

Yes there is a small box that you can untick if you want to open in the same page.

locked Site Updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site today:

  • Fixed calender reminder intervals not being set correctly.
  • Changed one click unsubscribe to two click unsubscribe because a few people use email programs that click every link automatically.
  • Made member search case insensitive.
  • Replies to digest messages now bounce back with a helpful error message.
  • Instagram integration fix for accounts with no photos yet and better error messages.
  • We now attach the original message when we send out pending message notification emails.
  • We now display an error message when a pending message has already been approved/rejected.
  • Fixed Back/Update button behavior when viewing or modifying an event in the calendar.

Have a good weekend everybody!

locked Re: Changing Group Name #bug

 

Hi Brenda,

The welcome message is generated when you first create the group. You can then edit it at any time, by going into Settings and clicking on Member Notices. 

If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't generate the welcome message when you create the group. I'd just have a default welcome message if the owner hasn't set one themselves. And that default would have the current group name. I'll put it on the todo list to change this, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to it.

Thanks,
Mark

Please read post #71 in Owlperch. There is a problem with the embedded links and I don't know how to explain it better than that post, and I didn't think I should re-post it in here.

I click on the web link in the notification email and it launches a new window. But nothing happens - just the URL is displayed. No message saying that there is no message to moderate. So I am assuming that this isn’t a glitch with this particular email since I can see that the message was approved already. It would be nice to have a message that there is no unapproved message anymore.

An error message is now displayed. Error messages, or a lack thereof, are a bit of a weak spot at the moment. I've been thinking about ways to design the error system and think I've figured things out, but I need to integrate it completely into the system.

Thanks,
