Rename group tab?

Postby sly001 » Tue Feb 14, 2017 11:45 am

When viewing posts for a group, the group's name appears at the bottom on the tab and up top in the title bar. Is it possible to change the display name of the group/tab/title bar so that instead of showing a.b.somegroup it shows MyGroup (or whatever you want)?

If you create group topics and add groups to the group topic, then load the group topic instead of the actual group, the tab name will be the name of the topic.

1 - Right click the groups tab "New Folder"

2 - Name it.

3 - Right click "Send to Folder" or drag and drop the groups you want into this tab.

4 - Load this new folder like it's a group.
