Confirmed. There was a change made on 21-May regarding sending messages to members, perhaps this is related.

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

May 21, 2021:

  • BUGFIX: Sending a message to members via the Members page ignored any checked members other than those on the current page. Discussion
  • CHANGE: Added some text to the Default Subscription Settings page to hopefully explain better that those settings apply to new members, not existing members.
  • CHANGE: Clicking the Identity tab in your account now takes you directly to your editable overall profile. There is now a dropdown selector to select a different profile to edit. I've also added some text to hopefully explain the (quite complicated) profile system a little better. More can be done, however.
  • BUGFIX: Fixed Discard button in /posttosub and also made it red and moved it to the right corner, to match the /post page. Discussion
  • NEW: Claiming pending messages and pending members is now logged in the Activity log. Discussion
  • CHANGE: Display the Claimed by badge for pending members in the mobile/app view. Discussion
  • API CHANGE: When calling the /getgroup API endpoint with a group_id of a group you are not subscribed to, return a new response of not_subscribed instead of group_not_found.

May 20, 2021:

  • CHANGE: When composing a message on the website, inline images will always be resized to be <=640. Previously, if the Max Emailed Photo Size was unlimited, inlined images were not resized. Attached images and inlined images in emailed photos will continue to have the previous behavior of being resized to <640 if the Max Emailed Photo Size was set and was larger than 640.
  • NEW: Working photo upload from the app into the Photos section. Still work to be done.

May 18, 2021:

  • BUGFIX: Fixed apostrophe conversion in subject lines of emailed notifications. Discussion

May 15, 2021:

  • CHANGE: Group filters in the /members page by how we process them. Discussion
  • CHANGE: Change URL structure on /messages page going to an individual message so that it doesn't change/browsers can correctly remember which ones have been seen. Discussion

Take care everyone.

Mark

Hmm. I just logged in as you and was able to delete it. Please let me know if you see this happen again.

Exactly. I would retitle the bug "to members across multiple pages" instead of "to multiple members."

This has been fixed.

moderated Re: Discard button on Send Message page #bug

 

Hi All,

I've fixed the behavior of the Discard button on the `/posttosub` page. Also, I've made it red and moved it to the right side, to match the `/post` page.

Thanks,
Mark

Hello,

This should be fixed now.

Thanks,

Hi Mark,

Apostrophes in event names are being converted to &#39; on calendar messages (cal-invite & cal-reminder etc,) and Mod notifications such as database updates.

moderated Record file downloads in the Activity Log #suggestion

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

File and folder uploads are recorded in the Activity Log so is there any chance we can record file downloads too? Keeping a count of them would also be nice (as suggested in #19632).

Regards
Andy

Coming from 10 years+ at yahoo groups, I really don’t like the new sort order. I would much prefer to see all the folders first and then files like it used to be.

... and some time in the last few hours, all of the read messages that I manually went back and forth between the message single view and the overview list view to make sure that they were shown in the browser as "read" went back to blue!

Same scenario as when the problem started about 2 weeks ago. Except this time, that was the fix!

Now both the summary list view and the <> single message view lists use the same sparse link and all is well in Mudville once again.

Thanks!

Same as Andy - doesn't render in email client, web or app.

The PDF icon thing may just be down to how the files are indexed. Simplistically you can use file extensions, but that's not reliable; just because it has .pdf or .docx doesn't mean it really is a PDF or word doc. Or you can use format signatures (magic bytes), where a file type will/should have known headers or byte patterns.

In the case of PDF files, the spec calls for the files to start with %PDF. However, many don't and most readers will happily open and parse files without it. If whatever tooling Mark is using to create the directory indexes relies on finding %PDF then you can see how the situation you describe might arise.

I have some PDFs that came over in our migration from Yahoo back in Oct 2019.  The PDFs are fine, but show up as type File.  Probably something in the import process didn’t recognize them as PDF.   In another folder where this occurred, I re-uploaded them and they were identified properly as PDF.  I just haven’t done that with these files.

moderated Re: #bug Messages no longer shown as read in browser #bug

 

I agree that this change to the link from the messages page has made reading groups on the web more difficult for me, especially if there have been more than 25 messages posted since I last read, as the link seems to change when it's moved to another page. I'd like it if either the link from the messages page were reverted back to the simple URL, or if the Previous/Next buttons could use the new URL, so the browser would know to mark the messages as visited.

Thanks,
JohnF

Derek

can you see the screenshot online?
the ICON and TYPE are inconsistent when it comes to a pdf file.  Sometimes they’re both true to the subject file being a *.pdf and sometimes not.  


pdf icon - PDF type 
plain old icon - FILE type
(both examples I show in the screenshot are pdf files)
