  1. Unable to upload files

    For approximately the past month, I have been unable to upload files to my group (I am the owner/moderator). i can delete files and create folders, but I cannot upload the edited version of a document I deleted, so now it is missing entirely! I am using Safari 5.1.10 on Mac OS X 10.6.8. While I seem to finally be able to actually save data entered on the databases, not being able to upload files is quite problematic.

      r reply window

      Suddenly the reply window has changed and instead of seeing the rectangular more options button that was there before there is the "expand header" option BUT we no longer have option to select to reply to sender rather than whole group. Is this intentional or a glitch?
      Please let us know when a fix is scheduled. Thanks!

      All replies go to everyone. Below it says this glitch is fixed, but it isn't!
      There is no drop box anymore, just a reply button.

      • After clicking on "next" arrow there is a delay while the Yahoo exclamation point and banner picture load. Page jumps up and then down.

        After clicking "next/forward" there is a delay and the new page jumps up and then down while the Yahoo exclamation point and the banner picture load. Since I am not interested on looking at the exclamation point or the banner photo, this delay before I can read the message is annoying. The jumping page is also visually annoying.

        • Not all of the photos in an album show up in the thumbnail view.

          The album cover says there are 78 photos, but only 40 show up in the thumbnail view. Your software pointed me to other similar reports, with a statement at the end that this has been fixed, but it hasn't.

          I am an owner of the group, and when I select "Reorder Photos", I see them all. I can move one of the invisible photos to the beginning, and then it shows up in the regular thumbnails.

          The group in question is "velerosbaja".

          • Cannot modify database.

            Our group has a database with a list of members and info about their boats (It's a San Juan 24 sailboat group). The column "Boat's Name" cannot be populated when adding a new line. Also, I am unable to add columns or revise column titles.

            • make it possible to edit pending emails and not receive a purple error bar. Messages can't be edited or rejected and returned to sender.

              We need to be able to edit ALL pending messages and not just some of them. A purple error bar comes across when trying to edit 25% of the emails. It prevents any editing and it prevents rejecting the message and returning it to the sender with a note.

              • Groups - conversations - finding a previous post

                I am the owner and moderator of the Mearns Bird Club Yahoo group.
                https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Mearnsbirdclub/conversations/messages
                In the previous incarnation of Yahoo Groups we could find a previous post by using a word/name/place name mentioned in the post in the Search box.
                In the Neo groups, it is possible to search only by message number.
                How is one supposed to know a message number? This is poorly conceived.
                We are bird club and if I want to find out when a particular bird was seen, I cannot.
                Please return the Search function to entering a word used in the previous message/title to…

                • Please Stop Trimming our Links

                  Thankyou Yahoo!! for some reason, I'm finding YahooGroups is trimming my links - rendering them USELESS, but Im sure it saves them oh 3 or 4 bytes of space; and must save you some MicroPenny. A big part of my participation in Yahoo Groups is posting Pictures and Art; the Reason I maintain a Yahoo business account is to host that Art; being unable to link from Art posted on One Yahoo Product to another Yahoo Product is ... Infuriating!!

                  • Trash this Neo Program and go back to the Old Program which worked and made sense.

                    I vote for bringing back the old program that members understood, worked for the monitors, was user friendly and made sense.

                    This Neo junk stinks, plain and simple. It is user unfriendly, does not work properly, was never developed correctly to begin with, is confusing for members and monitors, and is hard to understand.
                    Members are complaining to me and I don't have a valid explanation for them.

                    This Neo program is visually very unfriendly for the handicapped and I hope they complain to Yahoo about this situation.

                    Yahoo is not listening to its members or moderators. They simply are…

                    • How to join a group--make it easier!!

                      Everytime I hit join group...I get a message saying: "To use Yahoo Groups, you must first create a public profile. This is a name which you will be known by within the group. It will be used to identify you when you use group features such as Messages, Chat, Photos, and Calendar, and it will be displayed in the Members area of your group. You can use your real name or a nickname."--which I have!! it is like a vicious circle to try to get in this group!!!

                        • cannot read messages that are wider than message window because sideways scroll bar out of reach at bottom

                          When a message in the Yahoo Groups archives is wider than the message window, it is impossible to read because the sideways scroll bar is on the bottom and out of reach when I'm at the top of the message. This was a problem in Yahoo Mail that was finally fixed, but apparently developers of Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Groups don't communicate with each other.

                              You have posted "COMPLETED" to this several times, BUT IT IS STILL OCCURRING. As a moderator I get the "Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content" whenever I include the group owners in the "TO:" box.

                              This is REALLY becoming a pain in the hind quarters.

                              I realize you will never go back to a working group forum, but at least make it so the moderators can function.

                              • Allow retrieving of recently sent messages in archives by hitting back button

                                In the old Yahoo Groups system composed messages were retrievable by hitting the back button on my browser. Now when I write a message and send it, or accidentally hit the Reply instead of Send button (which is due to the terrible design of Neo!), I cannot go back to it.

                                I've spent considerable time writing posts that simply disappeared because I either accidentally sent it to just one individual in the group, or hit a wrong button. There is no way to keep a record of my own sent (or attempted) messages anymore.

                                  • Can no longer edit posts and then approve or reject them. What's going on now????

                                    For a short while the edit option for posts needing approval worked. Now it no longer does. What's gives At least with classic groups everything worked. with neo everything is broken.

                                    • Why don't all of the pics in a directory display rather than about 40 or so?

                                      Why don't all of the pics in a directory display rather than about 40 or so? I have some directories with a 100 plus pics. When you click on that directory. Only about 40 pics or so display.

                                        • Links broken in Groups with Safari 6.1.1

                                          Links broken in Groups with Safari 6.1.1 on OS X 10.8.5.

                                          Page:

                                          https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/HR_Users_Group/info

                                          Clicking "Conversations" and other links does not take you to the page, it just underlines the clicked link.
