The HR tag is not working for me when I am viewing a thread. Could this be visible? It would help screen magnifier users too if it were visible to everyone. But when I go into a thread, the HR tag is not showing up between messages in the thread, running NVDA and FireFox.


moderated Changing a non-mod's posting status logged as "changed moderator permissions" #bug

 

Summary: changing a non-moderator member's posting status resulted in an extra group activity log entry that his "moderator privileges" were changed.

Details: I changed a non-moderator member's posting status to "overrride - moderated" in a non-moderated group. Two activity log entries were created, one of them correct ("changed xyz's posting status") but the other incorrect ("changed xyz's moderator privileges"). Also, neither action was recorded in the member's activity log.

This is true even for those groups that were started after January 15.

Thanks for the bug report. It should be fixed now.

Hello,

I've added an invisible <hr> tag between messages in the Topic view. Please let me know if this works for you.

Thanks,

moderated Folder Notification - Add full path #suggestion #done

Beth Weld
 

My group has lots of documents spanning years. I try to manage that in the Files section by creating folders that contain folders that contain folders.

The file notification shows the full path of where the file is uploaded, but the new folder added notification doesn't.  It would be very helpful if all folder notifications contained the full path so that we can easily find them.
Thanks
Beth

I think it should stay the way it is.  I don't need another opt-out to deal with.  Having to opt-in, as now, seems much more apt to make sure people know that they're allowing others to see their information, not just moderators.

How about making ‘Other members of your group’ the default setting in Profile Privacy?

This would help the vast majority to be able to contact a fellow member and assist in keeping the Directory up to speed.

I second this. I'd personally opt for the


HTML tag, myself.

If the messages are going to have headings between them, I feel it would take too long to navigate, navigating by heading. Unless each heading is a heading level 2, and the body is not part of that heading.

The subject could be heading 2. I still like the


HTML tag more though.

Write to support@groups.io as well. I suggested this change a while back, but not the


HTML tag.


moderated Message separator to improve orientation using a screen-reader #suggestion #done

Jan Hegr (OK1TE)
 

Hello,
although the service is pretty accessible for the blind, thank you, I'd really appreciate some separator between messages when I view a post thread to be able to quickly skip from a message to  another using a screen-reader.

This could be achieved either by <hr> HTML tag or treat the start of the message as a heading.
I believe both approaches can be styled not to break current visual design, but it would help a lot the blind users to navigate the post threads.

Thank you very much,
Jan

While I understand the suggestion, it could lead to even more requests for further differentiation, viz:  the age line for "kids", younger than 16 or through 16, the gender claimed or other personal selective identity. This could even vary depending on the geography, the family or any one of several factors.
And, what about "almost adults".  In many families there is a period where that classification is used at mixed parties of gatherings wheree they might be allowed a wine fizz, under supervision.  (Italian Immigrant families often allow middle teend a little wine with a lot of soda pop during family get togethers
It seems to me that these classifications should be handled outside the RSVP via email or message to the responsible person.

That's getting pretty (overly) specific while still leaving out other possible categories (friends etc.). I don't favor any of this but would not object strongly to the original suggestion (adults vs kids) since it seems to be helpful to some people.

If I add a Message Footer like this:

It used to show up just fine but this broke a bit ago. Unfortunately
I don't remember when.
I went thru some old messages I have. Turns out its been broken
since last December if not longer.

But if the message only contains a text/plain part, then the
customized Message Footer is correctly formatted with no html.

However if the message contains both text/plain and text/html parts,
then the customized Message Footer is formatted with html in the
exact same way in both the text/plain and text/html parts.

moderated Photo Auditing: Misleading "updated photo" owner/mod notification #bug

Christos G. Psarras
 

When a member clicks on "Edit" a photo of his, or a mod does the same on any photo, if the "Update" button gets clicked on, the mods get an audit "[groupname] Photo xxx.xxx updated" notification email:
 
Notification subject: 
[<group_name>] Photo <file_name> updated
Notification body text:
The following photos have been updated in the <album_name> album of the <group_name>@groups.io group.
   <file_name>
By: <group_member>
 
In addition, an entry is posted in the Activity log:
<group_member> edited photo <file_name> via web
 
The issue is that the notification (& log entry) is generated & sent even if nothing was changed (i.e. one just clicked on "Update" without changing anything), or if the image itself wasn't changed but something ancillary was, i.e. if the image was selected as the "Cover Photo" and that was all that changed; the auditing code behind the "Update" button doesn't really check if anything was indeed changed, it just assumes something was changed because the Update button was pressed.  While it's obviously good to know if someone is messing around with the Photos, the notification can be misleading because it implies the image itself was modified, which can lead a mod into a wild chase to try and find what someone did, especially if the notification was about specific group photos that shouldn't be messed with.
 
Cheers,
Christos

I agree!  We host many events that are for kids only, parents seem to struggle with how to respond to account for the correct amount of children. For instance, we may host a kids-only class with a maximum number of attendees, but parents will signing up two kids will inadvertently  RSVP for themselves plus two more, when they just need to do a plus 1. It throws off the count.

Andrew -- Just because you're seeing anchor tags is no evidence that groups.io inserted them. A plain-text email cannot include a hyperlink, pretty much by definition; and the Message Footer field in settings has no provision to insert anything as html.

I still think it's something on the receiving end, probably your email client. If you tell us what client you're using (preferably in GMF), we might be able to tell you how to turn it off.

Bruce

That sounds normal to me. How it will show up in an email depends
on the program that's reading it. Many will attempt to make a live

Sounds normal BUT possibly you changed your email client, or your email supplied did or you changed something at your end that made it happen.
But as Duane says, it sounds normal.
