Yes, I agree.  Albums inside of albums - as we have with folders inside folders- would be a welcome addition for my groups.  Thank you Margo for your message.

Margo -- I totally agree that this would be a handy feature.

Just FYI, if you check the box for "allow photos in files" you can have nested photo albums in the files section. Unfortunately this does not display the photos as thumbnails/slideshows or provide any of the other features of a photo album...just basic storage.

Bruce

Mark,


Also note that it appears that most Photos sections are already off-line and not transferrable.

The word "already" may be wrong there. The current outage in photos (for my groups anyway) started a few  weeks ago and I don't think is connected to the planned content deletion.

Except maybe that they're tired of fixing it.

There have been numerous prior outages in the photos section of Y!groups over the last few years, and usually they get around to fixing the problem, but not necessarily promptly. Nor necessarily comprehensively (some groups report their photos are back, while others still see them as blank squares).

What happens this time is anyone's guess I suppose, but I'd try not to imply that they won't come back. Maybe "... most Photos sections are currently having an outage and it isn't known if they'll be restored prior to the deadline."

Shal
(yeah, ever the optimist).

Margo Seegrist
 

I'm a newbie owner of a groups.io site and don't know if this has already been discussed.  I am interested in the ability to have albums inside albums to make it cleaner for the site.  We are just moving over from yahoogroups and have presently 434 albums at that site.  You have to scroll forever to find the correct album whether you set it to date or set it to alphabetical.  I would like to have a clean photos tab that shows 2018 albums and under that specific subjects like Layouts, Mingles, Challenges, etc. and then under that the actual months of albums.  That way we won't have to scroll or go page by page through so many albums to find what we want since the title may not be what is on the photo.

Naturally I won't be copying all 434 albums over to groups.io but from this point forward we'll be creating future albums (13 each month) which will clog things up quickly unless we have the capability of having albums within albums.  (I have that on my computer now) - albums within albums.

Is there any way you can do this feature?

I've had a team in Spain working on this for several months now, and things are progressing at a pretty good clip now. I'm doing my best to complete the API as they need it and to not slow things down, although the sudden influx of Y! Groups refugees is filling my plate right now. I'm hoping that the app, in some form, will be released before the end of the year. Most likely it will not initially include group management features; those will be added later. It will be released on both iOS and Android at the same time.

Thanks,
Mark


moderated Yahoo Group transfer deadline

 

Hi All,

From an excellent suggestion from Duane, I've added the following to the top of the Yahoo Transfer page:

Due to the pending discontinuation of many parts of Yahoo Groups, we ask that all transfer requests be given the go ahead no later than December 1, 2019. We will not be able to guarantee any transfers submitted after that. Also note that it appears that most Photos sections are already off-line and not transferrable.

 Please let me know if there are other places this should be added to, or if you have any suggestions for improvements.

Thanks,
Mark

Yeah, starting yesterday there was a spike of group transfer requests, which was how I found out.

When: Thursday, 17 October 2019, 2:00am to 4:00am, (GMT-07:00) America/Los Angeles

View Event

Description:

Our hosting provider, Linode, has to patch all the physical machines our service runs on. This downtime corresponds to the patching of our main database instance. The site will be down potentially for up to two hours, although I believe it will be much less than that.

This downtime starts at 9:00AM UTC.

Mail will be queued during the downtime and will be sent when we are back on-line. I will be sleepy the next day.


moderated Re: ability for members to easily see all their messages in a group

 

That's cumbersome. There's a reason we have a way to get to all of a member's messages without having to find an existing message of theirs first.
Chris did post about the actual feature. It's only the wording that could use some tweaking.
