Description

Hi Ray --

As I look at the members list of the Announcements group, I see that most people are on Daily Digest, which I find to be unexpected. I know that you set up a script to subscribe all new members to that group when they sign up .Do they default to All Email or Daily Digest?

I set a script to add new members to the Announcements group. Whatever the Announcements group has set up as the default email subscription level is what will be used for these new members.

On the Announcements group's settings, it appears that the subscription level is set to "Daily Digest". If we want to change this to "All Mail", this can be done on this page:

thanks so much, Ray -- I've made that change.

FYI, the person currently listed as admin has left NYCDH. I'd like to promote myself to admin of that group. Right now, I don't think we have implemented a way to search through the membership, and the prospect of going to Manage > Members and scrolling through 51 pages of members to find mine is a bit daunting. So, two questions:

1. Can you please promote me to admin of that group?
2. Can we look into implementing the member search we have on the Commons into CBOX?

Thank you!

or, if there is an easier way to do this, please let me know! Thanks

Done. Did this manually.

Can we look into implementing the member search we have on the Commons into CBOX?

We have this functionality in the default BuddyPress template pack (basically, when you use any WordPress theme but CBOX Theme). However, this feature wasn't backported to the CBOX Theme.

Let me know if we want to backport this functionality to CBOX Theme.

Thanks so much on all counts, Ray.

Yes, please do. Thank you!

I've added a member search form on a group's "Members" page for logged-in users, as well as on a group's "Manage > Members" page.

To change a group member's subscription, you should use the group's "Manage > Members" page.

Will commit these changes to CBOX Theme as well.
