  • Assigning Website Roles When Adding Members to a Website

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Update the screen to let users choose the role when they add members

    Description

    Dear Open Scholar Team:

    Good morning. Would it be possible to assign one a viewer role at the same time as when making them a member? The ability to do so would save time on my end.

    Additionally, once I assign them as a member, I then have to go back in and reassign them as a viewer. Members then receive the following notification:


    Hi xxxx,

    Maura Madden has changed your role to Viewer on the website

    http://projects.iq.harvard.edu/xxxx_xx. If you feel this was in error or

    have any questions, please contact them at maura2@harvard.edu

    Sincerely,

    Projects at Harvard


    The note above has confused new site members.

    May I ask if we could assign the view role (and perhaps other roles besides basic) when adding folks as members to a website?

    Thank you very kindly for your consideration! I look forward to hearing from you soon!

    Sincerely,

    Maura

  • New screen for content import --> single import

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Create a new screen for content import --> single import

    Description

    The plan here is to create angular based modals for the following content types: class, event, feed, link, media gallery, page, person, presentation, publication, software project. To see how these forms currently look/work you can go to (in the left Admin menu) Site Content > Import. The above import screens only allow the db to store 1 import at a time. Also, we'd like to use the Media Browser drag and drop field for file uploads. The title of the Modal should reflect the menu label in Import. Ex. "Class" in the admin menu import section will also be used as the modal title "Class"

    Example of 1 allowed file type. Note: theres No radio button and the label contains the word only. img

    Example of 2 allowable file types. img

  • New screen for content import --> multiple imports

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Create new screens for content import --> multiple imports

    Description

    the plan here is to create angular based modals for the following content types: blog, news. The significance of blog and news is that they allow multiple imports to be stored.

    Specs:

    • Do Not display the tabs until an import file has been added. Disregard the Class title -- this is reference only. The title of the Modal should reflect the menu label in Import. Ex. "Class" in the admin menu import section will also be used as the modal title "Class" img

    • Once an import file has been added, display (2) tabs -- Import and Manage. The form present in the Import tab is the same as the form in spec 1).

    • Clicking the Manage tab will display the loading spinner inside the tab <span ng-show="spinning" class="spinner ng-hide"></span> This spinner is already in use in the new globals settings Save buttons. Note that multiple imports will appear in a select list -- All Feeds dropdown below. The loading spinner mentioned above will also appear in the Filter button when clicked. img

  • Prevent "et al" in publications

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the issues in publications

    Description

    Yes, the Harvard-Chicago style does show all authors.

    I guess I don't understand why breaking the IEEE style is such a bad thing. I understand why its very nice to have the exact styles there, but if someone wants their personal webpage to show things a little differently, I don't see whats wrong with that.

    Anyways, my guess is this is a losing battle on my part, so I shall move on. I have switched my webpage over to the Harvard-Chicago style to help you debug. I am having two main problems:

    1. Look at the only entry under the "2012" section. The journal name is "Phys. Rev. Lett." and the publisher is "American Physical Society". In the bib file that I used to import my publications, a number of the entries included a publisher entry indicated "American Physical Society", but I do not want this to show up in the citation. When I try to edit the publication, I do not see any field that shows the publisher or the text "American Physical Society".

    2. The second issue is more confusing. Look again at the only publication under "2012". As I write this, the second author appears as "A. J. Liu", and when I try to edit the publication, the author entry is "Liu, A. J.". So far, this makes sense. Now, when I delete the periods so that the author entry reads "Liu, A J" and press save, the author now appears as "AJ Liu". This is exactly what I want, so at this point everything seems to be great. However, if I go to edit the publication again, the author entry now reads "A. J. Liu", not "Liu, A J" as it did when I last saved it. If I press save again (without making any changes), the author now appears as "A. J. Liu". If I go to edit the publication a third time, the author entry reads "Liu, A. J.". Somehow, the text is not being saved consistently, and I'm not quite sure how. This doesn't seem to be an issue with any other authors, so I am even more confused.

    Please let me know if that wasn't clear or if there is anything I can do to help you debug. Thanks, Carl

  • Relative links not working

    The Plan

    Home button does not work when on relative link

    Description

    I'm not sure why the relative links are not working on a site that I'm building. It does not have custom domain yet. The links are pointing to the root installation URL. In other words, they are missing the vsite name.

    For example in this screenshot, the link points to:

    Fix the bug so that "open to new window" functionality works

    Description

    Hi,

    I just posted a student blog to our website and there seems to be a problem with all the hyperlinks in the content. Even though I had set all the links to open onto a new window when clicked (I checked the box that said "open in new window") but for some reason the links still do not seem to do so. Can this glitch be fixed?

    I have included the link to the blog below:

    This is also affecting relative anchor links. If you use the link tool in the WYSIWYG and enter something like:

    more-info

    The markup will generate a link without the page name. For example:

    http://hwpi.harvard.edu/joe/about

    Which takes you back to the home page.

    Fix all the sync update issues

    Description

    One of my synced profiles still didn't have a photo, and, since other threads suggested this problem was fixed, I thought I would delete the person and try and sync it anew. Unfortunately, this failed and now the person isn't on my site at all. I had to add the new sync by webpage (the search didn't work at all), and the new profile page that is created doesn't have a title or any synced information (all fields are empty):

    http://classics.fas.harvard.edu/peopl...

    It says "This profile is synced from another source. Create a personal website from this profile."

    "Synced from another source" links to the actual profile I was trying to sync: http://hds.harvard.edu/node/233286 or http://hds.harvard.edu/people/charles...

    Of course that is just the admin view, and no visitors would even see the link. Please help!

  • Adding a custom domain is not working

    https://github.com/openscholar/openscholar/issues/9066

    When using the new setting an entry in the PURL table is not created. Other settings save fine.

    TEMPORARY WORKAROUND 1. Verify that a vsitedomain row does not exist for the siteid in the purl table 2. Add one manually: Ex (INSERT INTO purl SET value = 'sysbio.med.harvard.edu', provider = 'vsitedomain', id = 739346;) 3. Clear purl cache: ex. (drush @projects.prod eval "purlmodifiers(NULL, true);") 4. Clear varnish for that domain
