In the Tools for managing Groups, is there any tool for transferring a group from one quota to another?


Using Jamroom

Marketplace does not offer a "Change Owner" module, but a Change Owner tool appears in many other modules. I can't see how to choose a group and change the owner to a profile that is in another quota.

To take many inactive groups offline, I made the profile to which they belong inactive. Now I want to move one group to a new profile that is active.

This might not involve a change of quota at all, unless I put my active profile in a different quota.

Thanks. If this seems confused it is because I am confused!

In the Tools for managing Groups, is there any tool for transferring a group from one quota to another?


Using Jamroom

I would like to transfer a group from a quota that has been taken offline to a quota for active groups.

I don't want to start a new group and transfer discussions and pages to it. I would like to keep the existing group intact as a whole, and transfer that. So far, all I can find are tools for the transfer of group pages and group discussions.

Does the tool I need already exist?

Log4J vulnerability


Installation and Configuration

Thanks,

I am not seeing the term "Log4J", when I search the JR site, so I am hopeful that there is no problem for our JR site servers.

But that does not mean there is no problem. The "Log4J Vulnerability" is something much talked about since last week.

Just now I checked a Wordpress forum and found the following statement which I think answers my question:

"WordPress, plugins and themes are using PHP as server side language. log4j is a component for Java servlets. Its another programming language and it is not used in WordPress ecosystem (except maybe some very exotic integration plugins that work together with PHP and Java, but its very unlikely case)"

Since JR is based on PHP, I presume we have nothing to worry about here. I will mark this thread as solved.

Log4J vulnerability


Installation and Configuration

The term "Log4J" does not appear in a search of Jamroom, so I am hoping that this is not an issue for JR sites...unless it is a server-side issue that might affect JR sites (and everything else) on vulnerable servers.

Any public or private advice on this matter would be welcome.

Is it possible to know what search terms have been used to find a jr site?


Using Jamroom

I guess the answer is yes with some kind of external monitoring by G**gle, but is there is any way from inside jr to see what search terms have brought visitors to a site?

Mark items visible only to Admin while logged in as Admin


Suggestions

Thanks. Maybe it is best to continue as you suggest. What I suggested might be too difficult to implement for too little extra benefit. My fantasy is for the logged-in Admin to have a god-like ability to see all points of view, with a single login. It's just a thought. I'll call this solved for now.

Sending invitations using email address - advice in module is not clear


Using Jamroom

The Invitations module offers two ways to send invitations - to Users (i.e. Followers) or with email addresses. The Documentation for this module only explains the case of selecting followers as recipients.

It is not clear whether or not email invitations can be sent to any email address, inside or outside the list of users/members/followers of a network, or only email addresses that are inside a jr network and match users/members/followers.

Note: The language template gives the following advice message:

QUOTE: Enter the email addresses (one per line) for the users you would like to invite

From the perspective of ordinary members of a network, this is not clear Does the advice mean the email address of any follower, any member of the network, or any person inside or outside the network?

I would like to change the language string to make the message understandable for users of my network, but need to understand it first myself!

Mark items visible only to Admin while logged in as Admin


Suggestions

When editing and organising the structure of jr network, we need to be logged in as Admin.

For those of us working with just one small computer, it is not easy to be logged in as an ordinary user (or other non-Admin. category) and as Admin at the same time.

Logistically, it would be very useful if Admin could know, from a highlight, shading or tag effect, whether or not the item visible on a single screen (with a single login as Admin) is visible or not to ordinary users (or any particular user category for which the admin would like to consider, while logged in as Admin)..

With this effect, if something is not visible to a particular user category, then I could quickly decide what action to take, if any, when reviewing the contents of the site.

Would such an optional effect be technically possible to implement and generally useful for jr network owners and developers?

Steps to set up a network with subscribers


Using Jamroom

As noted previously in this forum, there is no information provided in the jr Documentation for the Subscriptions module.

I have been scouring the forum for clues, and have found the following:

How to set up a subscriptions system for members of your network.
1. Create a signup quota for "Trial Memberships" or "Free Memberships" or a similar name.
2. Empower members in that quota to pay for a Subscription that offers something more attractive than the trial membership.

Notes:
i. The JR system does not allow signups directly to a quota for paid subscriptions. The technical reasons for this have been explained in this forum. Subscriptions have to be linked to an existing member profile id.

ii. Even when the Subscriptions module (inside JRCore) is activated, and the additionally required eCommerce module(s) are actived, it is not obvious how to give members access to subscriptions.

iii. Step 2 (above) is not actually explained. Ideally, a step by step process would be described using screenshots, in the Documentation, or perhaps here in the jr support forum.

iv. Since my existing members are accustomed to having free accounts, I will make their quota NOT a signup quota, and create a new signup quota for trial memberships. That way I can avoid any bother for existing members. The sting should only be for new members, and it will be a very small sting. I will try to be a good nurse.
