>3) I would like to trim the text in the "name" filed to display only the first 50 characters or so. Is there a file I can modify to make this happen? We use the Name field for the subscriber to share a brief introduction and when the field is wide the admin displays scroll off the right side of screen (too wide).
All of these would require modifications to the show_pending_subs
function definition in Mailman/Cgi/admindb.py.
There is code there that purports to sort the subscription requests by
email address, but it doesn't work. I'll probably file a bug and fix
that, but you could modify it to sort by time. you can also truncate
the fullname and add the time (after converting it to a nice format)
in the same function.
Let us know if you need help with the actual Python.
>Maybe these can become feature requests as well.
I don't see them as that generally useful, but you are welcome to
submit it to the tracker at
