Differences in footer look between normal and GIO-sent messages #footer

Christos G. Psarras
 

Hi folks,

Before I bring this up on beta, does anyone in here know if the footer is supposed to look differently when one uses the online interface to send a direct message to a user versus a normally posted/replied-to group message?

In the former case this is how it looks, note the [ For more info ...] text (custom group-specific text added by us) is at the top:

versus the normal footer:


Groups.io Links:

You receive all messages sent to this group.

(also note in this case how the two horizontal lines that I guess are supposed to highlight our custom-added text are centered on the page's width, not left-justified as in the text-only version of this footer***, or non-existent as in the direct-message version.)

If this was done intentionally, does anyone know why?

Cheers,
Christos

It's intentional. See https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/wiki/Footers

Bruce,

Yes, I'm aware of that doc, I even used parts of it in our groups' help wikis.  But it still doesn't answer the two questions I posted, you may want to reread my message more carefully. 

Cheers,
Christos

After discussions on the beta group a few years ago, that's the way Mark designed it.
