Hi All,

If you're having problems with icons not showing up, please do a hard reload: hold down the shift key while clicking the reload button in your browser.

Thanks,
Mark

Yes, that's what I thought.

It is semantics because the person who posted that did not realize the difference.

Sorry; it is not just semantics. There is no point anyone raising the format of the User Name when the topic is the format of the Display Name.

Confusion Alert!! This topic is about Display Names; User Names are something else entirely and the two must not be confused with each other.

Agreed. User name should be what the individual wishes and we as
moderators should have no say over the matter. In our amateur radio
lists we encourage members to set their user name to callsign and first
name but it entirely optional. We should not be setting rules for it.

Same thing here on my old Windows XP machine using the Chrome browser. They show up okay using Firefox.

As for the "new topic" message editor, I'm still not getting a file attachment upload button. I've tried XP using Chrome and Firefox, and Windows 10 using Chrome and Edge. Same story on all of them.

I'm happy with that. When they sign up they get asked first name, last name , display name, email address

Then they can modify email and display name.

I just want owners and moderators to have the ability to see first and last name and if needed the ability to change them


For this to happen
Two new database fields to be added
Update signup form to include these fields
Modify members list under admins to display the information fields, 
Grant create/modify and view only access role and allow owner to grant or deny this to moderators.

Solved for my purposes.
I subscribed to calendar, made it public, added it to my Google calendar, and posted a link on my group home page in my group description.

It could just be me, but I'm still missing around half the icons. Here in Beta I'm seeing ~ next to Home, and blank boxes next to other sidebar items. I have icons for Messages, New Topic, Directory, Calendar, Files and Wiki.

I don't have a problem with this as such - I only ever use Desktop so have all the relevant words to work from - but thought it might be worth raising.

Unfortunately, wildcards don't work. For example,

finds nothing though
https://beta.groups.io/g/main/search?q=lymphom
finds several messages.

The photo download did download with a click at one time, but didn't work with several browsers, so was reverted to its current function.

Bruce,

Right clicking the Download button gives me the "save link as" option in my Chrome browser. I don't really see a problem.

We've had similar complaints about the CSV files for the member list and databases, but this strikes me as a more pernicious problem inasmuch as our subscribers have to deal with it, too.
