Yes, it bothers me as well. This seems to happen most often in my group when people take a prior, offlist-sent email and COPY AND PASTE it into their post, and then send. The same message, simply posted via email, will not have the font size change. In my group at least, I'm noticing it only when someone copies and pastes. Usually, it makes the font tiny, and then I sometimes will go in and edit it to a more readable font-size.

I don't know what's going on with Anita's posts, which are always in huge fonts, but that (I admit) bothers me as well.

The Group_Help forum might be a good location for asking about this, too.

From what I've seen there is no way to use a font that's not supported by the web interface software itself, at least not as displayed in the web interface, anyway.  I don't know what might happen as far as e-mail.  I've tried saving a cut and paste in a non-supported font in the signature, and that font is maintained there, and it even shows up as expected when composing a new message, but once that message "hits the group" it is converted to what looks like Helvetica if one of the other supported fonts was not used.

moderated Font Size variation in body of posts / digests - thoughts? #suggestion

Maria
 

I'm curious if I'm the only one who is bothered by the fact that the font size of the body of a post can be changed from the default 14 pt to something smaller or something bigger, and that this change is translated in to the digest as well.

I guess I am not sure what the advantage is to have posts that are written in 18 point size font or for that matter 8 point? And for then the digest to have content that is also in different font sizes. What am I missing?

Maybe it would be easier to have the 14pt size be standard for the body of a post, then a headline option and a smaller option for stuff that needs to be smaller? And if someone posts via email, to have whatever font size they use translated in to 14 pt ( maybe that already happens?).

I guess I don't mind the discrepancies so much on the web interface but on the digest I'd love for it to be all the same size font because on mobile that really jumps out at you when someone posts in 18 point. It sort of messes with the nice design, but it also makes it feel like I'm reading an ALL CAPS message, or that the poster is trying to make their post stand out more than the others.

Thoughts?

Maria

What link are you referring to? John and I just tried that with every link and it still doesn't work in an HTML footer. Your message number I can see, but not an HTML one.

We also tried View Source, a trick Shal taught me once to find the message number, but it doesn't have it either.

Thanks for trying. :) Hopefully Mark can restore that to the footer.

On the bottom of the Subscriptions page for a given group in the online web interface.  You can then use the checkboxes just above it to determine whether it is appended automatically only to web posts, e-mail posts, or both.

There may be the equivalent at the user profile level but I manage all of my own signatures at the group level.

I have explored all the different tweaks as well; my signature would show up for a post or two, then disappear again. Maddening!  Any hope for a fix on this?

I'm now an actual moderator on one group, and a moderator in name only (I volunteered to help in merging and/or splitting threads) on another, where a lot of thread merging is required.  Most of these threads that are split are in close proximity to each other in the Topics View because, as most often happens, they split when they were originally a new(er) topic.

If you've discovered a cluster of these *way* down the Topics View page, and do a "Start Merge", the page does a full  refresh after you've chosen that control and you're back to viewing the page as though you've just entered it.  This often means you are now very far removed from the very topic into which you wish to do the "Merge into" step and have to search for it again.  This is tedious even for a single thread merge on "old threads" but it escalates to insanity making when you're trying to do lots and lots of thread merges in succession.

If there is a way to stop the full page refresh after the "Start Merge" control is chosen, and to make sure that focus remains on or very close to the "merged into" thread after the "Merge into" step is taken it would make archive tidying a much easier process.

If there's not, then definitely let me know as I'll slowly transition myself into my Zen "that's the way it works; it's part of the charm" state and learn to deal.

moderated Re: How on earth does Groups.io thread a topic?

 

Suddenly, today, the member's posts are threading correctly, even without "Re:"

The message activity log shows that he (and others) "Sent message Lysine" (instead of "Sent message Re: Lysine"). Yesterday, such posts were creating their own threads instead of threading under "Lysine." Today they are threading correctly.

I will try to get a better grip on this today and summarize it at the end of the day for Mark via support (and cc Shal). I'll also include whatever message headers seem relevant.
