moderated Site updates #changelog


 

Changes to the site this week:

May 21, 2021:

  • BUGFIX: Sending a message to members via the Members page ignored any checked members other than those on the current page. Discussion
  • CHANGE: Added some text to the Default Subscription Settings page to hopefully explain better that those settings apply to new members, not existing members.
  • CHANGE: Clicking the Identity tab in your account now takes you directly to your editable overall profile. There is now a dropdown selector to select a different profile to edit. I've also added some text to hopefully explain the (quite complicated) profile system a little better. More can be done, however.
  • BUGFIX: Fixed Discard button in /posttosub and also made it red and moved it to the right corner, to match the /post page. Discussion
  • NEW: Claiming pending messages and pending members is now logged in the Activity log. Discussion
  • CHANGE: Display the Claimed by badge for pending members in the mobile/app view. Discussion
  • API CHANGE: When calling the /getgroup API endpoint with a group_id of a group you are not subscribed to, return a new response of not_subscribed instead of group_not_found.

May 20, 2021:

  • CHANGE: When composing a message on the website, inline images will always be resized to be <=640. Previously, if the Max Emailed Photo Size was unlimited, inlined images were not resized. Attached images and inlined images in emailed photos will continue to have the previous behavior of being resized to <640 if the Max Emailed Photo Size was set and was larger than 640.
  • NEW: Working photo upload from the app into the Photos section. Still work to be done.

May 18, 2021:

  • BUGFIX: Fixed apostrophe conversion in subject lines of emailed notifications. Discussion

May 15, 2021:

  • CHANGE: Group filters in the /members page by how we process them. Discussion
  • CHANGE: Change URL structure on /messages page going to an individual message so that it doesn't change/browsers can correctly remember which ones have been seen. Discussion

Take care everyone.

Hi Mark,

I was having problems with the emailed photos setting (Admin -> Settings -> Message Policies -> Max Photo Size in Email). After changing it from 1024 x 1024 to "No-resizing", it was still resizing to 1024 on the longest size. See this discussion on GMF :-

https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/topic/posted_image_size/82832557

Bruce suggested I change the setting back to 1024 x 1024 and save the setting then change it to "No resizing" and save it again. I did this and it worked. Now I don't know why you have to do this twice to get it to stick, but Bruce has reported other issues like this (I do not know which ones).

Could your change as reported below have had any effect on this setting and I just changed it at a bad time, while your were changing code in the background? I assume you were talking about images embedded or attached when composing a reply online. My issue was with emailed attachments, so I think this is a separate issue, but it is quite close by and I do not know how your code is organised.

Why do you need to make the changes to "Max Photo Size in Email" twice for it to take effect? I can forward to Support the test emails to show what happened, but you should be able to see some of this from the Activity log for SREmG.

Regards
John Russell

Hi John,

on the email copy of your message I received, it shows that you added a #bug hashtag to the subject.  Hashtags get ignored if you try to add them on a reply and if you check online you will see this topic still just has a #changelog hashtag.  I was surprised to see it emailed back out if it's ignored when threading the message into a topic.

@Mark,  if you reply to John's message online, the subject also includes the ignored #bug hashtag which seems strange.

Regards
Andy
