moderated new hashtag option - disallow muting #suggestion

 

It would be convenient to have a category of hashtags that can't be muted. I realize that "Special" hashtags can't be muted, so one solution would be to just set any tags I don't want muted to "Special." But it would be nice to have something in between. I don't necessarily want to send certain messages as special notices, but I do want them not to be mutable. I know there's an argument to be made about people wanting to read only what they want to read. So I'm not sure how others would feel about this option. But it would serve a definite purpose in our group.

That's a quirk of the editor. I can remove that line, but then that also removes the 'handle' on the right which you can use to resize the text box. I will continue to look for a solution, as I agree that line is weird/confusing.

Hi All,

I've just pushed some fixes for selected quoting and sigs that don't appear. Please let me know if you see anything else strange.

Thanks,

It's definitely not working, and also the autosigs are disappearing, seemingly randomly.
Any chance of going back to the old editor until the bugs are worked out? Or are we still technically in beta, so anything goes? ;)

Mark & All,

I just pushed changes so that the new HTML editor is live for
everyone for all instances on the website except for editing wiki
pages (that will require a bit more work).
I added a page in GMF's wiki to gather tips on using the new editor.
https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/wiki/Message-composition-tips-and-tricks

Corrections and additions are welcome. Comments and Questions can be directed to GMF's messages.

One group I administer has asked if their links to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram can be included in every sent message.

Is that possible?

It's not currently possible (footers are plain text right now). I could see making them HTML, but then the issue of including icons would be tricky.

moderated Re: remove "active" badge for "member notices" that are not of the automated types #suggestion

 

J, Shal,

I've removed the active display/checkbox for 'Message to Member' notices. As for invite/direct add messages, my thought was that I was going to make them act more 'normally', that is, there'd be a drop box to select one at the time of invite (the active one would be filled out automatically). But I hadn't/haven't thought through the issues with editing the existing message, or creating a new one 'on the fly' like you can do now.

Thanks,
Mark

Maybe, but some of this I disagree with. I find the saved text from the previous invite or add distinctly annoying, and have to get rid of it every time (and once I forgot to delete it and accidentally sent the prior customized text to the next person). I'll bow out of this for now...

moderated Re: Group by topic and hide archive

 

Hi,

If I understand the questions, you want to know if you can merge topics (you can), and if you can collapse parts of messages that are replies (not manually). We try to detect quoted parts of messages and automatically collapse them, but it's tricky and we don't catch everything.

Thanks,
Mark

Yes, if all goes well, in a few months, there will be a real Groups.io app, for both iOS and Android. Also, for enterprise groups, they will have their own, branded app.

No, I don't think you're sleep deprived.

I have had this happen on more than one occasion and I thought (and I could be mistaken) that I'd already reported it to Mark through the support e-mail.  The "select text you want quoted" then use the Reply link is not working consistently, or at least wasn't, and I have to believe still isn't.

moderated New editor live for everyone

 

Hi All,

I just pushed changes so that the new HTML editor is live for everyone for all instances on the website except for editing wiki pages (that will require a bit more work). It's definitely better than the old editor: hitting enter results in one line, instead of two. Also, if you're replying to a message and want to reply in-line, you can hit enter and the block quote is automatically broken up (I found a way Brian). And, it should handle cutting/pasting better.

This was major surgery throughout the site, and while I tested everything, please let me know if something looks weird.

Thanks,
Mark


moderated Re: automated, customizable "topic closed" and "topic moderated" notices #suggestion

 

Also, the simplest way to implement this would probably be to have settings for "moderated topic message" and "locked topic message." If either was blank, nothing would be posted for that case. If filled in, each would post automatically when a thread is moderated or locked, respectively. You could only have a single message for each, but at least this way you wouldn't need any dropdowns.  

p.s. I tried to send this as an email before but something went weird with my connection. Forgive redundancy if it appears twice...
