Re: individual members email other individual members?

Lyn,

You can set your group so that private replies are enabled via a button so named at the bottom righthand corner of a blank reply form at your group's online site. That button toggles the 'rpivate reply' option on or off.

Another option would be to enable your group's online directory. This allow participating members who have opted-in to show their name in that Directory to email one another.

Failng the above, your member(s) may share email addresses with one another and then take their discussion off-list.

OK — HTH

individual members email other individual members?

Lyn Paleo <paleo@...>
 

Some members want to take a discussion "off line" by emailing another member. Can they do that? As Administrator, I can easily send a message to an individual, but can members do this?

We have our groups set to moderate anything with an attachment so duplicates can be deleted before posting to the groups. we add a Mod note to anything we edit and I think people are slowly getting the message about trimming their posts. There are probably some who don't give a damn though.

Re: Duplicate Attachments

I am still somewhat mystified as to what you are doing ?

To be clear, I am talking about duplicates created when someone initially posts with an attachment and then others reply to it but *include* the attachment (I suspect (not so) smart phones are mostly to blame for this)

So the ones I would delete are copies of the attachment in the original post (which just take up storage room)

I have deleted many duplicates over a fair length of time and never has it deleted the original attachment

It sounds to me as if you are deleting a different attachment to the original

Christos - If you think about this a bit deeper - it isnt as easy as it sounds on the basis of your logic/thinking. If you are correct that there are attachments here which are in effect are originals (which I have deleted but should not have been touched/deleted) . The photos at least have disappeared altogether. On this basis I agree that it is logical to delete only complete duplicates not partial ones in this way. In the case we are considering - we started with one small original thread with a photo - this was the starter. Then we had a second small one (appparently a duplicate but with another photo) but this duplicate did not have the first photo as part of it. Then we had the large one (call it the 3rd duplicate) with several new photos and an MOV video (albeit video quite small) . It was this point that the 2 previous replies/photos were all to be seen together for the first time. Finally we had another small reply created with no additional photos this time just narrative but all there to be seen again. This final duplication did not add much at all over the 3rd except for narrative.

For my money the only one I could have possibly deleted and not lost anything would have been (all the photos) in No4 . Do you agree ? None of this explains why duplicates are created in the first place and perhaps this is down to lack of trimming. I certainly do not think that when one finds duplicated that deleting them adhoc will result in what you are looking for. In my case had I deleted photos in No4 reply - I would still be looking at 3 duplicates in the stack instead of 4 - two of which would have had repeat photos.

All good stuff - hey !!

Barry.

Re: Duplicate Attachments

Barry
 

Christos - Yes, this could well be the case. There were 4 attachments in this case building up to become the largest. Two were large in content/two were smaller. I carried out the process on the two smaller ones each in turn and as best as I cuold maake out they were the first entries in each case. I am frightened to delete the third now because both of the remaining attachments contain much more which means more to lose. The idea you have put forward could be the answer but I have not yet worked out how to test this. I might make up a ficticious thread to test this (and tell the membership what is going on in the process) to establish the position - unless someone else such as you can say - "YES - BARRY THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE SEEN TAKE PLACE". barry

That doesn't appear to have anything to do with the operation of GIO.  Looks more like your email provider sent it.

Attachments can be disabled for any group by the owner.  If they're enabled, there will be a paperclip icon on the formatting menu.  There can also be the situation of not being able to see all the icons on the menu for tablets and phones, especially in portrait mode since there's not enough real estate available.  They sometimes show up on landscape mode.

Attaching a PDF file

How do you attach a PDF file to a new message?
I only seem to get an option to load images from the photo library.
I am using an iPad.

Re: Files / Search not working #files

I wonder if on the older PDFs the text was stored using the old standard single-byte (ASCII) character sets, and in some newer PDFs the text us stored as Unicode (multi-byte) characters?  Unless the search engine was set up to handle Unicode, the search will fail.  Just thinking out loud . . .

Re: Files / Search not working #files

 

Hi Jud,

I have done sufficient testing with PDF files and .txt files to be certain that text indexing that happened to old files is no longer happening with new files. 
How do I report it to someone that can confirm the bug and possibly fix it?
You can post it to the beta group, https://beta.groups.io/g/main that's what the developer reads; you can include in it a link to this GMF thread as a reference. 
 
Then please post the link of the beta thread in a message in this thread, for future reference.  I'll add my confirming results in your beta thread as well.

Cheers,
Christos

Barry, would by any chance those two messages you edited were both the 1st reply to each thread, in other words the second message on the list onscreen?

Re: Duplicate Attachments

Nivard Ovington
 

Hi Barry

There must be something odd about the photos you have or the way they are attached ?

Today I tidied up a few posts with duplicated (in one case seven repeats) from subscribers replying *with* the attachments

In all cases I deleted the duplicated attachment and saved without sending, in all cases it *only* deleted the one attachment, leaving the text of all replies and the original with the attachment

*Without* using the red delete which I believe deletes the whole reply

Christos and Nivard - have carried out the same exercise again with the same result - attachment duplicate photo deleted with the result of losing the photo in all duplicates and the original attachment with just the narrative remaining. Two photos now lost forever !! Cant carry on like this much longer - members will get upset with me deleting their material.
One point however was - when I ticked the duplicate attachment photo (under the photo) - I then went straight to "save without sending". I did not press the lower tab in red "Delete".
