Seems to be broken again.  I was checking out the related bug, https://beta.groups.io/g/main/topic/82367001, and Discard doesn't do anything. other than prevent a Draft from being created.

Thanks,
Duane

More accurately, it sends only to (and displays "sending to") the number members from the current page you're on, be that 0, 1, or however many are checked on that particular page. That's despite the announcement "n members checked" where n is the total from all the pages you selected from.

Maybe it has never worked but that just means it's a OLD bug! It's still a bug. :)

It has never worked when scrolling through multiple pages as far as I recall even though the number of members selected as you navigate from page to page in the member list  is correct. As you said, when you select 'Send Message' from the Actions button, it says sending to 0 (zero) members. It's for that reason that I normally switch to infinite scroll on the rare occasions I need to select multiple members I cannot just do a search for.

I've confirmed that that's the bug. Even on a subsequent page with none selected on that particular page, it says "x members" selected and therefore seems to remember the selections from previous pages. But it has actually lost them and will display "send to 0 members" once you select Send Message.

Were yours on multiple pages? I think that may have been the problem. I think it may be losing the ones on previous pages as you scroll through, and my last page didn’t have any selected.

It works perfectly for me and I've just done another test to prove it. The count of the the number of members selected was correct, messages were sent (according to the Email Delivery History for each member) and messages were received by each member.

Another alternative suggestion for the solution (but a few more lines of code more than the original suggestion), is to leave the button strip alone as it works now, and instead introduce a new button next to the "Email" button, shown for Admins only, see attached.

I feel it would be better if the default for new groups was to disallow editing. Most group owners when they understand the issues seem to prefer to disable it.

Nobody is suggesting that. It would be a third option, the other two being to blanket allow editing or totally disallow it.

As I said before, Duane's suggestion  of adding that link to the member page is identical to yours in functionality, but yours LOOKS like the mod has editing capability over the profile, which is not what it really does nor should it.

I have never allowed editing. I think it is, in general, a bad idea.
It changes history rather than amending it (via replys to correct) and leaving a trail, and produces different messages via email and those who later look at the web site.
I'm sure some groups might benefit from what's being discussed, but I
find it irritating (and so do others) when someone posts basically the
same thing 9 times. I try to minimize intrusions to my inbox at work
and try to keep my inbox under 12 messages. Delete, deal with it, mark
it for action later the same day, or categorize it into a separate
folder for later.

For my home email, I filter extensively so my inbox can be managed.
But I don't really want to see many posts almost exactly the same, so
after reading this discussion, I went in and changed the setting in
all the groups I manage to no editing. Someone can reply to their own
post and add whatever they need to, or correct what needs corrected,
but this should minimize having many almost identical posts.

Some online forums allow you to edit your posts, like those on phpBB
or VBulletin forums. I think some have a time limit, while others
don't.

Just because I don't see the need for a limited time editing feature
doesn't mean someone else might not want to see such a feature, so I'm
certainly not against this if Mark wants to do the coding. I don't
want to see it as the only choice.

Definitely; all I'm suggesting is to add a shortcut from the profile to the edit-membership page.  Since the "Membership/GroupProfile+MemberIntegrations+EmailDeliveryHistory" button strip and code is already there, with one extra IF it will provide that shortcut for the admins.

Maybe so. I have a hard time with hypothetical screen shots (really hate them), but if I'm interpreting correctly, including not just the screen shot but the text of your OP, you would make it look like mods have editing power over a member's profile. And I don't think mods should be able to edit a member's profile. Just their member page.

>>> That would be similar in function to Christos's original suggestion, although not in format, and is better because it doesn't imply editing of the profile itself.

J, I think you misunderstood; read the OP message again, the profile editing button behavior/functionality would not change, it will stay as is (only shown for the account owner); only the button strip behavior would be tweaked, so it also shows if the users is an admin, see attached.

That would be a great feature, if it were working. But it's not. My test group strips fonts and colors and the preview does not. I just tested it. Maybe should file a bug report.

The problem I can see with that is the button could bounce between top and bottom, depending on whether you're in Message or Topic view.  Having it below each message allows you some control based on the person that posted it.

 I was anticipating this kind of tsk, tsk response. It is very different reviewing a posted draft from an unposted one, for a number of reasons. Many sites provide this feature. In groups.io, one reason you may not have thought of is the ability to strip things like HTML. If I post a message with some parts quoted from elsewhere, with differing text fonts, etc, for example, I want to see how it will look in posted form.

Both are available via the More menu. Perhaps a little inconvenient, but I have to stop short of "terrible PITA."
I have to admit, I never 'fell over' the "More" menu at the bottom. To my mind, it's in the wrong place. If "Mute this topic" is in the top buttons, other things an owner or moderator needs to do should be next to it. Putting it next to "Like" downplays it's importance.

I run into this most when I'm on the individual message page. One simple option for me, on the individual member page, would be to move the "More" button to the top of the message page next to "Mute this topic". Then when I need to do something related to regulating the topic or the sender would all be in the same place.

In thread view, could there be an option window for owners that only appears when they click on the member name to select either member history of the member page?

Just a thought.
