A place to put user comments with Loomio 2.0 issues that have been fixed



Russ Gaskin Tue 20 Aug 2019 1:59PM

Okay, here's what's happening with the session control: I don't have Loomio open in any tabs, I open a tab, browse to Loomio, and see the old version. I refresh the page and see the new version! Kind of cool but also really confusing for our members.


john gieryn Wed 10 Jul 2019 5:49PM

My proposal would be that I do edit the context with all edits, and do it under a "john's additions" header that you can sort


john gieryn Mon 8 Jul 2019 4:11PM

That last bit holds true for clicking on polls; if I scroll away and then try to navigate back to them by clicking the navbar poll title, it won't do anything unless I hit Context first


john gieryn Sun 1 Sep 2019 11:11PM

CORRECTED: above behavior is just for
when I click on notices that are [User] accepted your invitation to…

eg, Michael accepted my invitation to [thread] and also Michael accepted my invitation to [poll]

lmk if you need anything else @Rob Guthrie


Richard D. Bartlett Fri 30 Aug 2019 12:19PM

Some suggestions:

Visually distinguish the headings (my groups) from the links.

Just show me one level of group hierarchy at a time and let me switch between them. Eg when I open the drawer, show all top level groups. Hide subgroups until I'm ready for that next level of detail.


Robert Guthrie Wed 28 Aug 2019 2:08AM

Ok thanks, I can see errors have come through from the backend for this. So will address it today.


Matthew Bartlett Tue 16 Jul 2019 9:07AM

In discussion t8ZIxp05


john gieryn Wed 28 Aug 2019 1:16AM

ha i swear i didn't mean to demonstrate it with this comment, I literally just went to post it fully legible XD


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 7:23AM

That's just how it works. It's fulltext search, meaning it looks for words, so it will stem words and such, finding very similar words etc.

The other searches (on polls, members, files) are exact match search, however, so I understand why it would give the impression it should work.

I'll keep it in mind, a solution should arrive.


Danyl Strype Tue 16 Jul 2019 11:08AM

I have an edit button for my comments. Can you see one now?


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 7:24AM

I'd be interested to know if this happens just once, rarely or frequently.


Robert Guthrie Thu 18 Jul 2019 12:08AM

Thanks @Graham I think I've got the first issue understood and will push a fix shortly.

The second comment confuses me a lot (not your fault). Is it possible you posted the comment in Loomio 2.0, then went to edit the comment in Loomio 1.0?


Robert Guthrie Thu 18 Jul 2019 4:40AM

thank you. this is now replaced in beta v53


Jody Connor Thu 18 Jul 2019 10:09PM

Me too.


john gieryn Tue 27 Aug 2019 5:29AM

great work!


Robert Guthrie Tue 27 Aug 2019 4:06AM



Robert Guthrie Tue 27 Aug 2019 4:06AM

fixed, see sidebar


Robert Guthrie Tue 27 Aug 2019 4:06AM



Robert Guthrie Thu 25 Jul 2019 8:16PM

Thanks for posting this. I'll add it to the list.


Robert Guthrie Thu 25 Jul 2019 8:20PM

Search (currently under the tabs on the group page) highlights where the terms matched in the search result. Does that help?

Are you thinking about search on this page, which offers "within this thread" as a scope limit?

I'm going to pull the search up and out a little to make it more prominent. Not sure exactly how to do it yet.


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:06PM

Thanks for the feedback @Arwen Heyworth . Seems like there is a crash while Loomio 2.0 is loading for you. What browser and device are you using?

On desktop there is a sidebar with "add comment".. but we need to add a "jump to" menu for mobile (and maybe table users).


john gieryn Mon 5 Aug 2019 10:55AM

This is a high priority bug IMO as it gives me hesitation about doing my day-to-day in beta. It is time-consuming to remediate because even copy-pasting the good text from the edit history doesn't work (when you paste it in to the edit box while in beta it looks good but then posts with the html tags visible again; have to go back into 1.0 to fix) and I'm not sure how to know whether a given comment (or thread?) was posted via 1.0 (except by memory)


Robert Guthrie Thu 8 Aug 2019 10:23PM

Yah! sure thanks for whining! 😎


Robert Guthrie Fri 16 Aug 2019 8:43AM

You think that's complicated. Pffft. Thank you for reporting this though.

I think you're a member of subgroups, but not of the main group for a few organizations.

I've updated how it works, is it any better now? (be sure to refresh)


Graham Mon 5 Aug 2019 11:21AM

Agreed - put the button where it makes most sense for it be, which is beneath the post. Although not a major priority for me.


Robert Guthrie Wed 7 Aug 2019 1:14AM

text disappearing off the screen is now fixed.😌


Richard D. Bartlett Sun 30 Jun 2019 8:13AM

Sam Muirhead has been playing around with js to do this. Maybe ask him about it? I reckon he might make it for fun.


Robert Guthrie Thu 22 Aug 2019 5:46AM

Thanks for pointing that out, david. I'll follow it up.


Robert Guthrie Wed 3 Jul 2019 8:09AM


Light blue means it's the focused one.. ie: the one referenced by the url you visited or jumped to via the slider. I'll make it fade out after a second, it's just so you know where to look when you arrive.

Orange means unread.. well unread since you visited last time. I may write "unread" around it somehow.


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:40PM

Oh ok! Well please know that your efforts have been really helpful. I'll look into MS Edge now.


john gieryn Fri 28 Jun 2019 2:43AM

  1. Losing a bunch of drafted content, possibly in Loomio 1.0 and 2.0 (though maybe it's cuz I've experienced a switch in this browser) :? Definitely not saving drafted comments in 2.0 beta

  2. Checkboxes not working and making the edit box not work in a number of ways (particularly around bullets etc.)

  3. Notifications do not clear when I press the bell... also missing the blue color up there to call my attention gently


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:36PM

Arrr ok we still need to test with that browser. If you have another browser, could you try again with that, so I know if there is an issue with Edge I need to address?

(just if you've got the energy for it)


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:35PM

After you click "Enable Loomio 2.0 beta", hold shift and press refresh, I think that will force it to load 2.0.


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:18PM

Ok then the other feedback you're giving must be on the Loomio 1.0 experience.

When the logo comes up, then fails to load anything else, can you please right click within the browser window, click "Inspect" and send me a screenshot of the "Console" messages you're getting.

And I'd still love to know what browser you're using.

Thanks for your help.


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:11PM

So.. did Loomio 2.0 load eventually? I'm confused about the nothing comes up + feedback on the thread page experience.


Robert Guthrie Fri 13 Sep 2019 1:01AM

oh gosh. thanks for saying! ok this is fixed in next deploy!


Robert Guthrie Tue 10 Sep 2019 10:24AM

Great report. Thanks! We'll address this soon.


Danyl Strype Fri 2 Aug 2019 12:30PM

I had a possibly related bug. I posted a comment on one thread. While I was looking at another thread, I got a notification on the bell that someone had replied to it. I clicked the notification and it took me to that thread, but both my comment and the reply were gone. I just tried navigating to that thread without using the notification bell. I still can't see the comments and they're not being counted on the comment counter on the group's main page.

Then my comment from that thread turned up at the bottom of a totally unrelated thread. I tried to delete it, but I didn't disappear. Although now that I go back to that second thread to check, it is gone from there.


Robert Guthrie Mon 8 Jul 2019 1:47AM

Don't worry there's plenty of time to sleep while the bugs are still crawling around.


Robert Guthrie Fri 12 Jul 2019 4:19AM

I'll look into the privacy display bug.

The editor is missing because the thread was created using Loomio 1.0. So you're back to markdown. I could add a line of grey text to explain that.


john gieryn Mon 8 Jul 2019 10:07AM

oops here it is


john gieryn Tue 9 Jul 2019 5:35AM

I see broken image in your comment; thumbs-up this reply and I will also test


john gieryn Tue 2 Jul 2019 12:05AM

Do you want me to take it down now? And/or, I can just email you the files?


Robert Guthrie Sat 29 Jun 2019 10:13PM

  1. There is no draft saving in 2.0 beta, we'll warn if you are about to discard unsaved work, but the old draft system is awful and we're going to replace it with something much better.

  2. Thanks, we'll fix checkboxes before public beta

  3. we'll update notifications as viewed before public beta. thx


john gieryn Tue 2 Jul 2019 2:08AM

Okay can do... do you mean with the developer log open? I forgot I might open that and originally figured a screenshot wouldn't help because the view looked normal outside of comments (i could tell you which ones) not being present


Robert Guthrie Fri 13 Sep 2019 1:02AM

Removing attachments will be sorted next week. I'll let you know.


Robert Guthrie Thu 5 Sep 2019 5:50AM

I'm noticing that too!!!!! on everything


john gieryn Thu 12 Sep 2019 1:41AM

just recalled I may have posted something up thread about this… sorry if so/ on the move :pray:


Robert Guthrie Sun 8 Sep 2019 1:21AM

Thanks for explaining this with pictures, it really helps.


Robert Guthrie Sun 8 Sep 2019 1:20AM

Attachments are a one way thing, as they're a completely new system for 2.0. I'll fix editing attachments from 2.0


Greg Kan Mon 9 Sep 2019 4:01AM

ids = currentuser.formalgroups.pluck(:id)

self.collection = Group.where('parent_id in (:ids) or id in (:ids)', ids: ids).

where('isvisibletoparentmembers = true or isvisibleto_public = true')

group A (which john can see but whose content is inaccessible) isVisibleToParentMemberss=true, isVisibletoPublic=false

group B (which john can't see but is actually a member of) isVisibleToParentMembers=false, isVisibleToPublic=false


Robert Guthrie Tue 2 Jul 2019 4:48AM

yep. know about this and will fix it soon.


john gieryn Thu 11 Jul 2019 10:30AM

Yea for sure; I just meant it's weird to hit post and then see a placeholder for the content I just wrote. Maybe this disappears when the speed increases upon full release though


Robert Guthrie Fri 12 Jul 2019 7:32AM

omg! Thank you - will look into it.


Greg Kan Mon 19 Aug 2019 8:29PM

hey @Matthew Bartlett would you be able to give us the thread URL? we are trying to fix this


Michael Fri 12 Jul 2019 4:32AM

Sounds like a problem of legacy threads that may cause confusion during (and after) the transition. A grey text explanation will help 👌


Greg Kan Mon 2 Sep 2019 10:59PM



Robert Guthrie Fri 13 Sep 2019 1:05AM

Yes/No images are fixed now. Thank you.

Forking a thread has been removed, we now support "Moving comments", which means you can move comments to an existing thread. Currently you'll need to create a new thread then move comments to it to replicate the Fork behaviour. There is no linking comment right now.

I'll action those display issues you've mentioned.

The animation is all provided by the framework we're using, I've not specified ANY of it, which has mostly been a benefit. At this stage I'll keep trusting the framework.


john gieryn Mon 8 Jul 2019 10:08AM

to be clear, I posted two comments probably 3-4 minutes ago, after Luke Flegg's most recent comment


Matthew Bartlett Mon 19 Aug 2019 9:09PM



Robert Guthrie Thu 5 Sep 2019 6:23AM

ok this crazy bug is fixed now (introduced in a UI library update)


Robert Guthrie Wed 3 Jul 2019 8:11AM

Hrrmm. and there is an understandable confusion between the orange unread line and the blue button.

The button updates in real time, the orange line is per visit to the page. I'll make the colours the same, and the line fade out shortly after it appears on the screen.


Robert Guthrie Wed 28 Aug 2019 3:09AM

Thanks for the report, we've fixed this in next deploy


Danyl Strype Mon 5 Aug 2019 4:26PM

I agree with John. One intriguing possibility is to move everything on that line to the bottom of the comment, including the avatar and display name of the user who posted it. That might subtly incline users to evaluate comments on their own merit, rather than judging them in the context of previous interactions with the author.


Robert Guthrie Wed 28 Aug 2019 2:08AM

If you still have it in your browser, I'd like to take a look


Robert Guthrie Thu 25 Jul 2019 10:45PM

this is fixed now!


david rayner Thu 22 Aug 2019 11:06AM

i have no idea what that moyai emoji is...late night reflex click.

i will give it a meaning...keep up the good work.


john gieryn Thu 22 Aug 2019 11:52PM

definitely rarely, maybe only once or twice, as far as i recall


Greg Kan Mon 16 Sep 2019 11:40PM


Joriam Philipe Sun 18 Aug 2019 4:26PM

I guess I meant complicated from the user's perspective hahahah

Look, I logged in yesterday and it was working just fine! Today I noticed it's not anymore — I'm not sure what's the exact problem, but when I click 'Loomio Cooperative' it doesn't show Loomio Cooperative's subgroups, it actually shows the last group's subgroups (in this case here, Enspiral's)

I can still access Cooperative's subgroups, but I'm forced to leave the beta, find the proper link, activate the beta again and then I can see it.


Matthew Bartlett Wed 17 Jul 2019 1:21AM

no :'(


Graham Fri 19 Jul 2019 1:23PM

That's quite possible, at one point it did seem that I was moving in and out of the two options, I'll keep an eye on it and if it happens again I'll post a new issue.


Greg Kan Mon 9 Sep 2019 4:01AM

@Rob Guthrie


Robert Guthrie Wed 10 Jul 2019 8:01PM

I'd like this to be a public process, and I'd invite you to help model that. I'm going to ask people to contribute to this thread as comments, manage the context myself, and delete comments once I've finished with them.


Robert Guthrie Tue 2 Jul 2019 12:06AM

Yes please take it down because it will be indexed by google via the sitemap.xml. Can you just post the stuff as a Loomio comment? Paste is fixed


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 7:57PM

Hi @Russ Gaskin thanks for the feedback.

If you force refresh with Loomio beta turned off, I think it will load a newer version of the loomio 1.0 client, which should then remove the sticky behaviour you're describing. So it should load 2.0 first time after you switch it back on. Does that make sense? Does it hold true?

We have made Loomio 2.0 totally backwards compatible with Loomio 1.0, so you can enable it but the rest of your group does not need to at this stage.

After we're happy 2.0 is ready to replace 1.0, we'll remove 1.0 and we can start adding features (like poll templates and document collaboration!) and everyone will get them at the same time.


Robert Guthrie Mon 5 Aug 2019 11:38PM

I'm happy to treat this as highest priority, but I don't understand it. I would really like to see some screenshots of what you're talking about if possible.


Robert Guthrie Mon 16 Sep 2019 3:08AM

Removing attachments is possible now. Thanks for reporting this.


Robert Guthrie Thu 5 Sep 2019 3:44AM

Thanks for this feedback @Richard D. Bartlett . Please see updated sidebar (beta >= 156) and let me know your impressions if you don't mind.


Robert Guthrie Sat 29 Jun 2019 10:14PM

ideally, I'd like to have an svg and animate it so it looks like it's being drawn, much like hellosign's loading screen.


john gieryn Mon 8 Jul 2019 10:41AM

Ha weird they appeared in another thread: https://www.loomio.org/d/gzCZ6Kpa/interested-in-producing-some-marketing-educational-videos-with-us-/14
I feel fairly confident this wasn't user error... not sure what other data you might want/ I could conjure as I realise this is a hard to reproduce one! Again, in case it helps, here's the 1.0 log where I found those comments (but I think probably not relevant as I navigated to this thread from an in-app notification)


Robert Guthrie Mon 12 Aug 2019 4:12AM

The editing 2.0 comments in 1.0 bug has been addressed now!


Robert Guthrie Wed 17 Jul 2019 1:27AM

are you on beta 49?


pico Mon 16 Sep 2019 3:08PM

what's the secret? I still can't find a way to remove attachments from a post without deleting the entire post; (Loomio 179 displays in the bottom left of the screen...is this the current version?)


Robert Guthrie Sun 22 Sep 2019 10:26PM

Cannot reproduce this now. Underlying libraries' updates may have fixed this for us.


Robert Guthrie Mon 9 Sep 2019 4:43AM

yah, maybe right. we'll fix it asap.


Robert Guthrie Mon 1 Jul 2019 6:09AM

Err help seems like a bad place for temporary info. A comment in here is fine


Richard D. Bartlett Thu 5 Sep 2019 6:30AM

I literally sighed with relief! I love it. Glad to have 1 click access to my inbox again, love that the options are collapsed behind my name too.

When I clicked "🔽 Enspiral " I half expected it to expand into a list of subgroups. I'm not sure if that would be good or not.

I'll have to use this a while to figure it out but yeah, huge improvement thank you!


Robert Guthrie Mon 5 Aug 2019 11:42PM

Thanks for the feedback. I changed it a while ago and it was one of my "see if anyone says anything" tests.

I wanted to remove some of the wasted whitespace we had with the old design.. when there are many comments it creates another 1cm or so of whilespace per comment to put a button bar under each.

There is a big improvement in the display of comments and in particular votes in the new design..

I'll keep thinking about the tension, but I'm not convinced I should move it back yet..


john gieryn Thu 8 Aug 2019 4:00PM

¿Possibly related to this? There are two threads, A & B. I likely have navigated to each of them in a given tab within a session (can't recall). When I arrive at thread B, I see its title, with the icon of the person who posted it (and its comments) like normal, but I see the context of thread A.

I have emailed screenshot of this as it contains confidential comms; you'll recognise the thread.

I realize probably hard to reproduce :/ but figured you'd want to know.

NB: I experienced this 9 days ago, the 30th, in case its already been fixed.


Joriam Philipe Mon 26 Aug 2019 4:55PM

Hey @Robert Guthrie — this bug was fixed and now it's back. When I click the Loomio Cooperative, again I can't see or access it's subgroups (and any thread at all inside).


Robert Guthrie Tue 20 Aug 2019 7:21AM

Sorry for the hassle! I thought I'd got all those, fixed now.


Robert Guthrie Wed 28 Aug 2019 2:56AM

ok thanks for reporting this. it'll be fixed in next deploy


Robert Guthrie Tue 10 Sep 2019 12:21AM

It's not secret groups you can see, but archived groups. I've filtered them out in the next release. Thanks


Robert Guthrie Tue 2 Jul 2019 1:49AM

Please please take screenshots when you notice missing comments. It's really hard to replicate.


Matthew Bartlett Wed 17 Jul 2019 1:29AM

Yeah. Here's what a comment looks like for me:


john gieryn Thu 8 Aug 2019 4:02PM

Hard reset fixed the problem, making the context display normal (Thread B)


Robert Guthrie Mon 8 Jul 2019 7:36PM

I believe you. That's a class of bug I need to get my head around and this is really good reporting. Thank you. Please try to keep using 2.0 if you can, just because I'm getting so much value from your pain.


Robert Guthrie Mon 26 Aug 2019 6:25PM

Ok. Sorry and thanks for the notice. I'll fix it today


john gieryn Wed 28 Aug 2019 2:58AM

sounds like you don't need more from me? just got back to this


Matthew Bartlett Tue 20 Aug 2019 7:21AM

No drama; seems to be fixed now thank you


Richard D. Bartlett Thu 5 Sep 2019 6:33AM

Oh I just learned I can click the triangle to expand the subgroup menu. Was hard to hit the target with my big thumb and small screen. I wonder if the target size can be increased without breaking the layout?


pico Mon 16 Sep 2019 3:11PM

is the LOAD MORE button supposed to be showing even when all files have been listed? or is the function of this button to add more attachments/files?


Robert Guthrie Wed 28 Aug 2019 3:11AM

yep. we're good now


Greg Kan Mon 16 Sep 2019 8:46PM

The current version is 187 - you can remove an attachment by editing the the comment/thread/group/poll etc.


Robert Guthrie Thu 5 Sep 2019 6:51AM

I've had an attempt to make it bigger - it's not easy but it looks alright.


john gieryn Tue 2 Jul 2019 3:34AM

1/ I wonder if the group description should be in-line with the 'secret' and 'options' bit? Maybe it could be organised in columns?
2/ "Include subgroups" might want some right-buffer as might Closed for when that is untoggled
3/ First 5 results for "europe" in Loomio co-op don't return "john European schedule & time off" even tho that was interacted with 12 days ago unlike the 3 years and 6 years ago—it does appear as sixth option... I think I can see the logic it's using and i dunno if you have capacity for much editing here but may be good in future for it to prioritise most recent interaction a tad more than "exact string"
4/ I wonder if there can still be a search bar when I first get into the app? This might be a power user / lesser priority but I do often jump into Loomio and immediately type into the search bar to directly go to the thread I'm looking for


Robert Guthrie Thu 8 Aug 2019 10:24PM

Thanks for the report. Let me know if you see it again. I'm sure it is related, I think this bug is my nemesis and I must track it down and destroy it eventually.


john gieryn Thu 5 Sep 2019 12:37AM

Bug in FF, "attachment button stops working"

Actions leading to bug occurence:

  1. Start new thread

  2. Attach a file to draft thread context

  3. Remove attachment (still haven't posted it)

  4. Click the attachment button

  5. Nothing happens

Work around — click and drag enabled me to add attachment


Matthew Bartlett Thu 5 Sep 2019 8:11PM

I like the v161 much better than the more collapsed one too; thank you Rob


Robert Guthrie Thu 5 Sep 2019 8:15PM

Should I show groups that you do not belong to on the sidebar? I'm thinking yes, (currently they are not) and I'm not sure if I use an icon or ordering to differentiate them from groups you're a member of


john gieryn Thu 5 Sep 2019 5:17AM

Can't edit subgroup title nor description; i try to type and it just blinks as if it is very quickly reloading


Matthew Bartlett Thu 5 Sep 2019 9:39PM

Yes I think so; because otherwise how could I discover subgroups that I'm not a member of but have permission to see?


john gieryn Sun 8 Sep 2019 1:09AM

FF: Attachments to Group page not showing up in neither the group page NOR when I go to edit those settings

In 1.0 I can see what I'd attached via 2.0:


john gieryn Sun 8 Sep 2019 1:11AM

Related to the just above:

Oh. Frustrating. I can't remove the attachment I put via 2.0 when I go to edit it in 1.0


john gieryn Mon 9 Sep 2019 3:47AM

I think i can see secret groups, and I can't see some subgroups I'm a part of (Greg knows what I'm talking about)


john gieryn Wed 11 Sep 2019 9:28PM

Several oddities/ bugs within the tag system, IMU both in 2.0 alone, and in 1.0 ↔ 2.0 compatibility [FF]

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Went to thread; clicked tag

  2. Typed in a new tag; which became an object (ie, had the oval around it / button appearance)

  3. Saved

  4. Left thread; saw that I couldn't see that it was tagged in any way

  5. Tried to go in to tag it with a tag that was already instantiated within this group Tag name = "Test"

  6. Could not get anything to appear where I should see my list of tags (just the one, "test") ¹

  7. Ironically, after this all happened, I was indeed able to apply a tag by typing it into the field, hitting enter, and then save Tag name = "test2"

  8. I went back in and removed 'test2' and added Tag name = "Advice process"

  9. Returning to edit the tag once more, I could not see "test2"

  10. Going into 1.0, I should have three tags available ³



Robert Guthrie Fri 12 Jul 2019 5:18AM

z-index bug with ranked choice


Matthew Bartlett Fri 12 Jul 2019 5:33AM

Generally I'm loving the animations, but the Comment <> Facilitate one feels janky; maybe particularly on full screen. The list of icons slides right out of the containing box.


Robert Guthrie Fri 12 Jul 2019 7:31AM

Oh gosh. I forgot people would sign in with the new interface as well. Thank you for reporting this.


Quentin Grimaud Fri 12 Jul 2019 7:31AM

Bug: After sign in, threads list is replaced by my e-mail


Quentin Grimaud Fri 12 Jul 2019 7:33AM

Bug: After clicking on "join group" button, it shows a confirmation alert in black background but the join "group button" is still there and clickable. Expected behavior: The button is replaced by something else.


Matthew Bartlett Sat 13 Jul 2019 6:07AM

I can't find global search in Loomio 2.0


Matthew Bartlett Sat 13 Jul 2019 6:08AM

Each time I visit Loomio I need to go back to /beta to turn 2.0 on; it doesn't stay on


Matthew Bartlett Sat 13 Jul 2019 6:43AM

I love the subgroups hidden in sidebar until you click the top-level group thing.


martin ➬ Sat 13 Jul 2019 7:26PM

Small piece of feedback: I really liked how in the 1.0 view of unread threads, I could dismiss a thread with a single mouse-click. With the new UI, it takes two, and some movement between.


Matthew Bartlett Mon 15 Jul 2019 10:06AM

Can't comment :(


Matthew Bartlett Mon 15 Jul 2019 10:07AM

Oh yes I can — I posted a bunch of comments into this thread, and got a notice saying 'Comment added', but the comments didn't show up. Couldn't see any error messages in console.


Matthew Bartlett Tue 16 Jul 2019 8:21AM

In the WYSYWIG editor (which I love, thank you), it would be nice to have a quote button:


Matthew Bartlett Tue 16 Jul 2019 8:27AM

My own comment is 'stuck' as unread (this one: https://www.loomio.org/d/dceG4Aa2/neighbours/230)


Matthew Bartlett Tue 16 Jul 2019 9:07AM

I see no button to edit my posted comments

It feels like only yesterday i was beta testing Loomio 1.0. This is really exciting! A couple of things:

  • love the WYSIWYG markdown rendering!

    • OMG I didn't need to add a second bullet point, it did it for me!

    • Nested bullets! But I did this accidentally by pasting a list after a button. How do I do it otherwise?

    • Too many exclamation points!?!

  • Love the idea of the link button, but clicking needs to capture my cursor, so I ctrl-v to paste a URL it appears in the modal rather than being pasted over the text I want to link. It wouldn't let me link "old laptops" in the next paragraph, is there a minimum length for linked text? If so, the UI needs to let the user know, maybe grey the 'apply' button until minimum length is reached, and give a char count, and a "go back" button? If not, maybe a bug?

  • How are links rendered for users reading in their email client as plain text mail? If they reply by email, and put links in [markdown syntax](https://www.markdownguide.org/cheat-sheet), do those get rendered as links in the web UI?

  • EDIT: Links entered in Markdown syntax are not automatically converting into links (unless I got the syntax wrong?)

  • The UI is a bit more responsive on my older laptops than 1.0, but still a bit laggy. If there's anything you can do reduce the work JS is making my browser do, that'd be greaaaat (also, excuse me, I think you have my stapler? ;-) )

  • Old school punctuation emoticons don't seem to be converted into emoji graphics. I actually like this, but it might throw some people for a loop ;)

  • When I click on a notification about a proposal, it takes me to the proposal page. If I'm understanding correctly that proposals are embedded in the comment stream in the new UI, it would be more helpful if that click took me to the embedded proposal, so I can scroll up and down to acquaint myself with the context of the proposal.

  • Editing tool bar tends to disappear, would be better if that never happened while comments are being composed. It disconcerting for the same reason it would be if the 'post' button disappeared during a composing session, and I had to click somewhere to bring it back.

  • EDIT: I have to scroll down to get to the post button and the editing tool bar. Would be great if they were a fixed element at the bottom of the comment editing modal. When I scroll, the editing tool bar vanishes, so I can't select text at the top and make it bold or link it etc.


Graham Wed 17 Jul 2019 8:53AM

Just added a comment to a thread. All good. Went to another thread in a totally different group and posted a comment there. The comment didn't appear. Went back to the first thread and my comment was posted there.

Edited the comment to copy the content and it showed me, and copied, HTML source so that when I pasted the comment in the right thread it rendered as HTML source.

So, two separate issues there.


Robert Guthrie Sun 21 Jul 2019 3:55AM

Profile page needs to wrap on mobile and change profile picture button throws error


Robert Guthrie Sun 21 Jul 2019 4:17AM

Don't indent comments on mobile. Jump to button should be different icon. Wrap all action buttons together


Graham Thu 25 Jul 2019 9:45AM

How can I search a thread? I want to post an issue here, but also I don't want to do that if it's covered already.


Graham Thu 25 Jul 2019 9:47AM

I'll post the issue anyway: Someone attaches a file to a comment. I get a 404 when trying to download that file becuase Loomio has writtenthe link incorrectly, adding (in this case) "https://www.loomio.org/d/Ipw342Cg/comment/" in front of the URL.


Danyl Strype Fri 2 Aug 2019 12:38PM

Three things I find disorientating when commenting:

  • the text I'm typing can disappear off the bottom of the screen, instead of the page automatically shunting up when my cursor moves to a new line.

  • I can't get my text back into view using the scroll bar in the edit window, I have the use the scroll bar for the page as a whole

  • When I click to reply to a comment, the comment box appears beneath the comment I'm replying to (which is good!), but the generic comment box at the bottom of the page remains live, so if I scroll around the thread looking for something before I start typing, I can get confused about where I'm meant to be typing.

BTW Is it possible to initiate facilitation in response to a comment, as well as reply with a comment? That might be out-of-scope for 2.0, but if so, and it hasn't been proposed (or rejected) already, I will open a thread to propose it.


Graham Sun 4 Aug 2019 2:51PM

I've just edited a comment I made maybe 6 weeks ago (not sure as to whether the date of the original post is relevant, i.e pre-Loomio 2), but anyway. When I save the change, the comment displays showing all the HTML tags.


john gieryn Mon 5 Aug 2019 10:57AM

Reaction bug in Chromium: when I reacted with the :slight_smile: to this thread context, the outcome was the :grinning: emoji


john gieryn Mon 5 Aug 2019 11:05AM

I'm curious how people are finding the reaction button being at the top of comments and contexts, and I wonder if this concern is valid:

IMO, having the reaction button at the top of the thread will disincentivize people from reacting. As a user, my instinct to react occurs when I reach the end of the context – eg, I just read Strypey's 'nested comment' thread… when I got to the end of it I wanted to :) but the react button was no longer in sight and I gave a second thought to whether or not to scroll up to act on my impulse; in another case, I believe, I've also felt inspired to react when I saw others' reactions, which appear at the bottom, so this too feels like the CTA (so to speak) should be near there

I realise this might be a tough juggle with other UI changes, but it might be worth (re)considering the placement of the bar of comment tools?


Danyl Strype Mon 5 Aug 2019 4:32PM

Today I tried creating a new thread, using the 2.0 beta on a mobile. In the popup for inviting members to a new thread, I clicked to invite the members of the group I was posting in, and then had to wait for ages while it pulled up a complete list of every member in the group. It was a big group and my browser really struggled. It took a minute or two to successfully render all the names, which wasn't something I actually needed right then.

A better UI approach might be a tick box for selecting 'members of this group', and a button to expand the member list for when that's needed.


john gieryn Thu 8 Aug 2019 4:13PM

Just in case this got lost:

Bug where image attached to thread context in Loomio 1.0 doesn't show up in 2.0 (this thread is an example https://www.loomio.org/d/6hf7HWxR/foundation)


Michael Wed 3 Jul 2019 5:14AM

The right hand Unread slider not showing correct Unread count. I just jumped into a thread and see unread comments on left, but the slider is showing 0 Unread.

Also not sure what is the difference between the light blue background on a comment and the orange line...? I haven't noticed a pattern yet


john gieryn Thu 4 Jul 2019 8:32AM

Issue getting into this thread in Firefox


john gieryn Thu 4 Jul 2019 8:33AM

Issue pasting an image into comment in Firefox

Relatedly? Loading bar not working in this instance


john gieryn Thu 4 Jul 2019 8:34AM

Weird persistence of comments from a thread I'd visited after navigating to new thread via notifications bell dropdown


john gieryn Fri 5 Jul 2019 12:59PM

Time polls bugs

Starting time polls (in Firefox)

  • I cannot cancel responses by clicking the 'x'

  • I can't move the text-cursor to the left of the last time listed

  • When I put my text-cursor at the right-most position, I have to hit Backspace twice to get it to delete the right-most time

  • When I use the left arrow button to navigate the text cursor in to delete others, I can't see where it is

  • When I use Backspace with text-cursor in the midst of the times it seems to function like Delete, removing the times in front of where I understand the text-cursor to be

I tried to catch a screenshot just as/after I had the following issues:

  • adding a time by typing it in I received "time already added" even though no times had been added at this point (screenshot was of my second attempt, when my typing wasn't exactly the same format)

  • I typed in a number and couldn't get the options (ie example timezones) to match it

Voting on Time Polls

  • I can neither see nor change my time zone

Reopening Time Polls

  • I can't edit my vote

Here's the same thing from the proposal page


Least important
The spacing between the response icons and the times (7:45am, for instance)


john gieryn Fri 5 Jul 2019 1:18PM

Awkward formatting and loading wheel in strange places

  • Loading wheel not centered; sometimes it appears in the top left under the group logo and the lack of padding also catches my attention

  • End of threads message needs padding

  • Reopen check header (and I think some other headers like Close thread?) could use resizing/ padding and alignment

  • Options carrot falling off of proposal


john gieryn Fri 5 Jul 2019 1:56PM

Editing a comment posted in Loomio 1.0, the attached image does not appear and I cannot paste in a new image


Robert Guthrie Fri 5 Jul 2019 4:42PM

Thanks for all the great feedback team. Really helpful listing of issues I'll get to them next week.

@John G @Matthew Bartlett @Michael Elwood-Smith (Loomio)

I've just implemented a new thread rendering approach and thread timeline. I think it's a big improvment.

Please try scrolling around threads (big and small, up and down) now.. I hope you'll find that you very rarely see loading placeholders, and when you do, they're not janky.

Also note the new timeline with slider removed.


Robert Guthrie Sat 6 Jul 2019 3:42AM

@John G I just had a cool surprise. copy pasting your time poll bugs comment into the context worked perfectly, images, formatting checkboxes and all.


Robert Guthrie Sat 6 Jul 2019 11:19PM

I'm really pleased with the new thread renderer, the design has the potential to take a thread of literally thousands of comments and make navigating around really snappy and seamless, even on mobile. There is a little more to do, but it's good enough right now now, and over all it's a breakthrough with lots of potential.

The timeline design is going really well too. One last thing I'll do is make it so you can pin/unpin anything (usually comments) to the timeline to make it easy to find/jump to anything in particular. Polls just start out pinned, that's the only thing that makes them special, they can be unpinned just like anything else.

I think this should make for a really creative useful feature, highlighting key comments, summaries etc. It'll only take a couple of hours then the nav will be finished for beta.


Luke Flegg Mon 8 Jul 2019 12:59AM

How am I supposed to go to bed when humans have just released beta Loomio 2.0?


Luke Flegg Mon 8 Jul 2019 9:46AM

The street is about 200m long, so could easily have 3 musical acts I think


john gieryn Mon 8 Jul 2019 9:48AM

> Can't embed links in Firefox

To clarify @Robert Guthrie – nothing happens when I hit the button on the Insert link modal.


john gieryn Mon 8 Jul 2019 10:06AM

So I did a hard refresh to try and find the last two comments I posted, which didn't appear after I posted them... as I'd mentioned before this brings me back to Loomio 1.0 (which is fine) but also the comments haven't reappeared in neither 1.0 (in Firefox) nor 2.0 beta (Chromium)

Here's screenshot with my log after hard refresh in not sure if it helps


john gieryn Mon 8 Jul 2019 4:10PM

Reposting the ones I'd tried to post in here just before my last comment:

  • Clicking 'Unread (1)' doesn't move me to the latest unread comment (Luke Flegg's just above) just highlights the Unread button nothing else... when I scrolled down there or used 'Latest' the Unread went to (0) like normal

  • Also, Context and Latest appear to remain highlighted in blue no matter what happens (I can't remember if this was only after clicking them) ,

  • as does the recent Unread comment (Luke's comment remains background blue even after I react to it)

After I use Latest once it won't work again unless I hit Context and then it resets


Robert Guthrie Mon 8 Jul 2019 7:44PM

Seems like inline images in emails break. This happening for anyone else?


Robert Guthrie Wed 10 Jul 2019 5:30AM


john gieryn Wed 10 Jul 2019 3:58PM

When I highlight text → hit the link → immediately hit Ctrl+P → I get photo below [Firefox]

Likely related to Firefox "can't embed links" bug?


john gieryn Wed 10 Jul 2019 4:05PM

number one here looks particularly wonky in examples such as...


john gieryn Wed 10 Jul 2019 4:22PM

oh, duh, it's a category tag... I wonder if it'd be worth putting the category tag symbol at the beginning of category tag ones?


john gieryn Wed 10 Jul 2019 5:47PM

Hi @Robert Guthrie absolutely love how things are coming along i hope you're very proud of your work and productivity these days!

Just tagging you here as I wanted to double check if you wanted me to edit the context to add items to the burn-down (tick-box) list? And if so, in all cases or only when I'm certain you'd find it priority? Michael had indicated to me that he expected it'd be better for me not to edit that list as we both understand you as owning it.

Let me know please and thanks, and when so doing (if you want me to edit) I'll review my recent some comments and log them there...


Michael Fri 12 Jul 2019 1:47AM

While editing a thread in a Secret group, the message tells me it is a Public thread

The WYSIWYG editor is also missing from 'Edit thread'


Robert Guthrie Fri 12 Jul 2019 3:27AM

@John G thanks for all this great feedback. One more process improvement - could you put each issue in it's own comment? It makes it feel easier to reply or delete issues as I need to.


Michael Thu 25 Jul 2019 8:37PM

Subscription plan status, e.g. 'Upgrade' button is missing from 2.0 beta. @Robert Guthrie Please include this in feature list to be added to 2.0 - we do need the ability for people to upgrade and pay for their group :-)


Rudolf Hornig Tue 10 Sep 2019 8:12AM

A few issues I ran into in build 177:

  • image for yes, no in count vote is not present.

  • When forking a thread, the original thread receive a comment that it was forked into 'New thread'. The link to the new thread is not working.

  • The 'That's all the threads in this group!' and similar status messages at the end of the thread list would need some padding added. It looks out of place right now without any padding.

  • The code block contains some extra padding on the first line. Also the checkmarks should be more visible.

  • There is a bit too much animation sometimes. Especially the diagonal movement when switching between the Threads screen and the comment list.


pico Thu 12 Sep 2019 6:50PM

added a table which showed correctly in the original, but after posting it got converted to lines of text: no cells


Michael Mon 9 Sep 2019 6:16AM

Report from a customer using 2.0 about setting up a new group. Can't easily see how to change/update group image or logo.

I found it in Edit organization settings, and see that if you click on the image or logo a file upload message appears - however a little more UX improvement would help. Also is there something a bit odd about the logo overlapping the image?


Arwen Heyworth Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:09PM

Laptop, no sidebar visible.


Arwen Heyworth Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:15PM

Nope, nothing loaded.


Arwen Heyworth Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:34PM

Here's what I see


Arwen Heyworth Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:35PM

Sorry, browser Microsoft Edge


Arwen Heyworth Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:37PM

ok, cool not me screwing up then. Plus the shift + refresh didn't work either. Will try with Chrome.


Arwen Heyworth Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:38PM

It works on Chrome!


david rayner Wed 21 Aug 2019 5:00AM

i have looked...no-one else seems to have noticed that the search bar disappears shortly after the first character what i have previously typed is deleted...before i get a chance to type again...

2.0? it all looks pretty good so far... except for those very faint menu headers...


Michael Fri 23 Aug 2019 12:06AM

Fork thread doesn't have a completion , to create the new thread... the Start button.

And once created (using 1.0) the links between old/new threads are broken.


john gieryn Sun 25 Aug 2019 11:35PM

Not sure how/ if possible to Add subgroup via 2.0 in FF


Robert Guthrie Mon 26 Aug 2019 12:09AM

Updates have been happening, but the process got a little unkept. Here's some of the stuff we've done as of 2019-09-26

  • save image dimensions on uploads

  • poll page duplicates the group cover image

  • put group description back

  • fix upload progress bar (is it really broken?)

This week marks a real focus towards making the app ready for public release and you'll see a lot of bug fixes come though.


Robert Guthrie Mon 26 Aug 2019 12:42AM


  • Fork thread doesn't have a completion , to create the new thread... the Start button.

  • the tab names are too faint

  • search bar disappears shortly after the first character what i have previously typed is deleted

  • 2 URLs are wrong in "Edit Profile" and "Notification settings", e.g.:


john gieryn Mon 26 Aug 2019 1:17AM

When I am navigated to a page featuring only a poll (from notification/email), the title for that poll is very hidden/ only visible in my browser's top bar (that displays page name)


Robert Guthrie Tue 27 Aug 2019 4:05AM

Good progress today:

  • fix fork thread √

  • fix the order of previous membership request. √

  • merge group setup wizard √

  • fix tooltip in sidebar √

  • show my subgroups then all subgroups √

  • tabs need to carry the subgroup query

  • add subgroup button in sidebar √

  • if you do not belong to the parent then link to my groups by default

  • show "you must be a member to see these threads"

  • upon joining a group fetch the records √


john gieryn Wed 28 Aug 2019 12:56AM

Time poll stuck loading and not sure if I'll lose my content if I navigate away/ refresh/ etc

@Robert Guthrie I'll leave it up over lunch and see what happens; any thoughts on how to save the content welcome, but if I have to redo it, so be it, all go
od :)



john gieryn Wed 28 Aug 2019 1:15AM

unrelated, fairly small:

control + enter does allow me to submit a comment without clicking post, but if my te
xt cursor is mid-line it will also register as if I hit 'enter' and then clicked post, creating unintended line-breaks


Robert Guthrie Thu 29 Aug 2019 10:12PM

linking to google


Richard D. Bartlett Fri 30 Aug 2019 12:17PM

I got triple confused looking at this menu.

1st confusion: the icons have no relation to the list items.

2nd confusion: took me a long time to realise 'my groups' here means 'subgroups of Loomio Community I am a member of' and 'all groups' means 'other subgroups here I could access'.

3rd confusion: how do I navigate to the parent group that I'm looking for if it doesn't have a distinctive icon? I feel lost and frustrated trying to get to where I'm going.

I'm sorry I don't suggest a great ready solution. I just know this novel layout of 2 levels of hierarchy is very disorienting for me.


john gieryn Sun 1 Sep 2019 11:00PM

@Rob Guthrie clicking on a notification (for a thread, from in-app notifications
) gives me an error; it's trying to navigate me to https://loomio.org/https://loomio.org/[thread]


Matthew Bartlett Mon 2 Sep 2019 10:06PM

I often find myself in Loomio 1; though always want to be in Loomio 2


john gieryn Mon 2 Sep 2019 11:36PM

Subgroup unread notice (eg, (1)) is not visible if the subgroup name is too long (you can replicate this in Loomio team's group)


Richard D. Bartlett Mon 16 Sep 2019 1:41PM

When I'm typing a comment, I select a piece of text and hit the "insert link" icon, I expect the insert link field to be focussed, so I can just type the URL and press Enter and then get back to writing my comment without extra clicks.


Robert Guthrie Mon 16 Sep 2019 8:02PM

Thanks for saying. It did have an autofocus on it but that wasn't working. I've applied a hack and also added support for hitting enter to apply.


pico Mon 16 Sep 2019 3:06PM

merged cells do not stay merged in a table after saving


Robert Guthrie Mon 16 Sep 2019 8:01PM

Yikes, thanks pico, I'll fix this now.

merged cell

merged cell


Robert Guthrie Mon 16 Sep 2019 8:01PM

ok fixed!


pico Thu 12 Sep 2019 6:49PM

added 2 attachments to a thread but don't see a way to remove them

i clicked the Files menu option and can see the list of 2 attachments but can only download, not remove

adding files by clicking the button in that same list did not seem to work, no popup to select files to be added


pico Tue 17 Sep 2019 4:11PM

merging table cells horizontally works now but merging vertically still needs some TLC


Robert Guthrie Wed 18 Sep 2019 3:48AM

Wow, I honestly had no idea that merging cells vertically was a thing, but thanks to you, it's fixed now!


Matthew Bartlett Wed 18 Sep 2019 9:37AM

v194 — can't edit context of discussion 7LSXhHUZ. When I hit edit I see a modal including the title, but not the context. Big ol' swag of console errorz:


Robert Guthrie Sat 21 Sep 2019 7:12AM

Thanks for reporting this. I don't think it is happening anymore though. Can you confirm please? 🙏


john gieryn Wed 18 Sep 2019 4:22AM

Thread contents have disappeared FF


john gieryn Thu 12 Sep 2019 1:40AM

attachment button on comment not working FF

if you can't reproduce immediately, try what I did

  1. attach something to the thread context

  2. (optional) hard refresh

  3. try to attach somethin to the comment


Russ Gaskin Tue 20 Aug 2019 1:55PM

Thanks for letting us drive the new car! We're just starting a second cohort of our learning community so we took this chance to test it out. In generally, it's much cleaner and easier to use (and I'm loving rich-text formatting!). Just three issues so far:

The biggest issue is that the selection of the beta version is not persistent. See the screenshots below. The URL is the same. The first image shows the site after I've opted in to the beta program and browsed to a specific Loomio group. The second image shows the site when I open a new tab in the same browser and browse to the same group. I told our group that we've opted in to the beta program but if they see the old version (or, worse, Loomio keeps showing different versions), that's just going to confuse them.

Agree with @mike_hales that the tab names are too faint (maybe depends on background photo but the font is generally not heavy enough).

The section tabs disappear when I enter a thread. I then have to click back on the group to navigate to another thread or section.

Thanks for listening!


john gieryn Wed 10 Jul 2019 3:49PM

Margin between blue focus background and "Load 1 previous responses" and other items, eg attached (maybe blue box needs bottom padding or margin) [Low priority?]

Possibly related, IMO there should be a touch of margin between the first comment and the context


john gieryn Tue 2 Jul 2019 4:02AM

When I hit the "Load 1 previous responses" as depicted in screen capture, I get a .5second loading circle and then nothing happens


Robert Guthrie Wed 10 Jul 2019 11:00PM

The grey boxes are loading placeholders.. they're part of the thread rendering system. They fill the place of a comment we know exists but don't have loaded yet. This means you can scroll around the full thread and we just load in comments for the place that you end up in, rather than making you load page by page to get anywhere.

So they're important navigational markers and will stay.


Matthew Bartlett Sat 13 Jul 2019 6:11AM

I tried hitting Cmd+K to add a link, but no luck (tho Cmd+B & Cmd+I do their proper formatting jobs). Nor does Cmd+Enter post — which I'm used to from e.g. Facebook


john gieryn Sun 18 Aug 2019 5:40AM

Funny behavior… Hit "Latest" while at the top, and then in the middle (after scrolling), of this thread (after scrolling) and got no response from app; here's my console/log:

EDIT: after posting this, I scrolled up and saw the browser still hadn't
managed to load all the comments in here:


john gieryn Sun 18 Aug 2019 5:45AM

search struggling with punctuation (at least asterisk); might be worth testing some others

there is indeed a thread with text string exactly matching *most*


Matthew Bartlett Mon 19 Aug 2019 9:26AM

I've seen this mentioned somewhere else, but I'm also experiencing context panel edits turning the context panel into HTML :(


Arwen Heyworth Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:03PM

Received email today about joining the Beta group and clicked on the link to swap to the beta version and nothing comes up/changes, I get a white web page with the Loomio symbol on it and that's it. Also, perhaps consider adding an option to comment at the top of the thread or one that scrolls down with you because it took me like 5 minutes to find the end of this thread so I could comment.


Arwen Heyworth Tue 20 Aug 2019 11:41PM

And the sidebar allowing me to go to latest comment is great!


Richard D. Bartlett Thu 19 Sep 2019 6:28AM

I can't use the loomio context menu to format my text because my phone's context menu is in the way.


Greg Kan Mon 23 Sep 2019 2:32AM

fixed - context menu now disabled for touchscreen devices. items will be available on the main menu :)


Richard D. Bartlett Mon 23 Sep 2019 7:51AM

Thank you . Its a super good feeling to have your responsiveness.


Connor Wed 25 Sep 2019 1:21AM

Perhaps a rendering bug? This very thread, header post, bullets not lined up. FF 69 Ubuntu


Robert Guthrie Wed 25 Sep 2019 1:28AM

Switch to Loomio 2.0 :)


Robert Guthrie Wed 25 Sep 2019 1:28AM

However, thank you for reporting this. We'll fix it.


Connor Wed 25 Sep 2019 1:37AM

D'oh! Guess this PC wasn't switched. Thought it was an account-wide setting.


Robert Guthrie Wed 25 Sep 2019 1:38AM

It is, but some browsers are fairly aggressive with their caching


Connor Wed 25 Sep 2019 2:20AM

Okay, here's a real bug for ya! Edit comment dialog is empty.


Greg Kan Wed 25 Sep 2019 3:24AM



Richard D. Bartlett Wed 18 Sep 2019 8:57PM

Proposals are too wide for my phone screen. That's a little annoying coz it pushes the vote buttons off the screen, but it's more annoying because it pushes the circle nav button thing off the screen too. So the right sidebar drawer winds up hanging in space instead of sticking to the edge of the phone as expected.


Robert Guthrie Wed 18 Sep 2019 9:31PM

Wah oh! Thanks for reporting it!


Greg Kan Mon 23 Sep 2019 8:45PM

this will be fixed in next deploy (204) :)


Richard D. Bartlett Wed 18 Sep 2019 10:03AM

On the Members tab of the group page, I see the same people repeated multiple times in the list. E.g the first time I show up as a member of the group, then I am there again as a member of a discussion in that group.


Richard D. Bartlett Wed 18 Sep 2019 12:49PM

Whoops, I was confused. I don't know what happened, and the behaviour has changed now. So ignore for now :)


Robert Guthrie Thu 19 Sep 2019 2:01AM

Is it possible you accidentally replied to the wrong comment here?


Richard D. Bartlett Thu 19 Sep 2019 6:21AM

The 'ignore me' comment was in response to my erroneous bug report about the members list on the group page.

Graphically it is not clear to me which comments belong to which thread. Looks like nested comments are offset a few px to the left of their parent, which seems backwards.


Robert Guthrie Tue 1 Oct 2019 2:41AM

FYI members tab now only lists a person once


Jody Connor Thu 8 Aug 2019 9:12PM

Hey Rob - I would hazard that somebody else has already clocked this, but just in case... When I click on a hyper-linked file, it doesn't open in a new tab; it moves me off Loomio. I personally hate this. Can we change it?


Joriam Philipe Thu 15 Aug 2019 7:29PM

Ok, found a very complicated one — and it's making my work pretty hard this week.

Many of my Loomio groups and subgroups disappeared from my Loomio2.0 left side bar. When I disable the 2.0, they are there as they've always been.

Here's two pictures of what my sidebar looks in Loomio2.0 and 1.0, just so you see the comparison. If you think it's important, I can check subgroup by subgroup, but not being able to directly access Loomio Community and Loomio Cooperative has been a bit of a drag.

PS. this is new, it was showing before. I don't remember having those troubles.

PS2. Probably related, but I haven't pinpointed exactly: I have a very educated guess that some posts I have access to in Loomio1.0, I am denied access in Loomio2.0. Today I tried to access some posts and was denied. Should have payed more attention and written them down, but I was in the heat of creation and didn't realise that was important.

need to fix consent and objection icons in emails:

Noticed that, when writing up decision/poll descriptions, you need to Shift+Enter to get a new paragraph. Just Enter does not seem to work for me. Using Chrome desktop.

Update: Also noticing this behavior when starting threads and in comments.

Oh gosh. Sorry about that. An update in the text editor library seems to be wonky. I'm rolling it back now. Will be fixed in 15 minutes.

errr, need to do something about this thread experience on mobile screens:

Sending notifications to "those who had voted" sent double to triple the notifications it should have (2 or 3 per person) – I noticed it said "sent 39 notifications" when it shouldve been 13, and then clicking into the history I saw people's names listed multiple times. I believe you can see for yourself in the thread (go to the most recent poll in this thread's Notification history)


Robert Guthrie Thu 21 May 2020 12:23AM

thanks for reporting, this, I thought I saw the behaviour as well, good to have it confirmed with a link to an example


Robert Guthrie Thu 21 May 2020 6:51AM

I believe I've fixed this issue now... it won't remove existing double/triple ups, but will prevent further issues


john gieryn Thu 21 May 2020 9:45PM

Bug? I received a notification indicating this thread (depicted below) had received a reaction, however the reaction does not appear to be there...


Robert Guthrie Thu 21 May 2020 9:49PM

will investigate, thanks

All the other threads in the Enspiral group are working, but I'm hitting

"We're sorry, but something went wrong"

when i go to this thread https://www.loomio.org/d/E8rs3vai/call-for-new-pods-


Robert Guthrie Sun 24 May 2020 10:40PM

thanks, deploying a fix now.

Funky behavior @Rob Guthrie recieved many many notifications that a person accepted my invite to join a group. May not be a step to reproduce, but it comes to mind that I sent Jimmy an invite to a poll, and then invited him to the group that poll (in a thread) was in.

Issue with Invite invitation flow. I mentioned this in the (related?) ticket I just assigned to you @Rob Guthrie. To reproduce:

  1. Invite to group an email that is not associated with a Loomio user account*

  2. Click on invite in a non-logged in instance of Firefox.

    I received: "You do not have permission to do this"

    * my email address did have an account in the past until I deleted the record


Robert Guthrie Fri 3 Jul 2020 5:53AM

I'm slowly catching up. is this still an issue for me to look into?


Robert Guthrie Fri 3 Jul 2020 6:12AM

my recollection is that we looked at this, came up with a fix for something and added a nicer welcome message to help orientate.


john gieryn Mon 6 Jul 2020 1:20AM

I think we did handle it in that live session of bugs i did w you and Greg


john gieryn Mon 22 Jun 2020 10:02PM

58 notifications, and weird time stamps (I believe you saw my accept the invite to Green Restaurant last night when i was demoing those bugs) @Rob Guthrie


john gieryn Mon 22 Jun 2020 10:03PM

PS – is there any way for me to see my old notifications? The quantity of these obliterated my ability to see any of my real notifications :/


john gieryn Tue 23 Jun 2020 12:58AM

I got another 7 of these 15 minutes ago @Rob Guthrie @Greg Kan


Robert Guthrie Tue 23 Jun 2020 3:14AM

ok thanks. that helps me understand


Robert Guthrie Tue 23 Jun 2020 3:26AM

pushing a fix now, but cannot yet confirm it's correct. Let me know if more happen after 3.50pm today


john gieryn Mon 6 Jul 2020 7:48AM

I deactivate group and hit OK and this results in the following state:
