The right side of my Community Daily Digest is shifted to the right from the title and the far right margin is cut off.  Reducing the print size helps but doesn't fully correct this unless the print is too small to read.  If the text wasn't shifted to the right, this wouldn't be problem.  Using MacOS ...

Using a Samsung s8 Android phone, I see no editor buttons associated with the "message body" box of action team emails. On this bug report, while the keyboard is up, the top two lines of the message body are covered by a strip containing three bars, the CCL Community logo, and a magnifying glass.

I'm setting up Forums for one of the groups I belong to.  What does the "enable view tracking" setting do?

Forum help

Select a question below

Community's Sitewide Forum lets you ask questions, share best practices and collaborate with other CCL volunteers and staff. This allows volunteers to move extended conversations from email and Google Groups into a more engaging and secure environment.  

Forums empower community members to discuss topics with one another while ensuring those conversations are archived for later reference. Topics are posted into a forum. Each topic is comprised of an initial post and replies or comments. Categories and forum topics have their own page. Forum categories will be listed on the the landing page.

Forum discussions are open to the entire CCL community to create, comment and read online discussions relating to the community. Categories can only be created by community administrators.
Guidelines for posting: (also see general Community Guidelines)

  • Don’t see your question or topic? Post it.
  • Be thoughtful, considerate (nonpartisan) and complete. The more information you supply the better the better and more engaging the conversation.
  • Feel like cursing? Please don’t it.
  • Ask yourself, “Would my topic post reveal sensitive or confidential information?” If not, post away!

Flag/report any offending comments, and then move on. In the rare instance of a comment containing a potentially credible threat, escalate that immediately to CCL.

To post a new topic, click the title of a category that you are interested in posting within (i.e. 'General Discussion'). To create a new topic:

  2. Click the 'New Topic' button in the upper left-hand corner
  3. Enter in a 'Subject' that succinctly describes your post's topic area.

To subscribe to any Forum category or topic, select the 'Subscribe to Topic' button with the mail icon. For existing threads, this 'Subscribe to Topic' button should be below the title and message on the left-hand side. For a new topic thread that you are creating this button will be right below the top title 'Post a Topic.' You then can enter your preference on whether you prefer to be subscribed to an instant, daily, or weekly notification for whenever new replies are added. You can also unsubscribe this way by clicking on the 'off' radio button to be taken off this category or topic's subscription.
