    The Plan

    Add export option to OS calendar feature

    Description

    Hi,

    I'm know of how to export the OpenScholar calendar to Google Calendar, but it would be helpful if there was a user friendly hyperlink as opposed to a work around. I've received a several emails from confused visitors. Can you create an "Export to Google Calendar" option? Also, if you export to iCal, events that don't list an end time use the start time as the end time as well.

    Links Disappear from Accordion List After Editing

    Hello! I am editing links that are organized in an accordion format. The links pull from a different page on the site. When I edit the links in the accordion format, after I click save the link disappears from the accordion list. I am not sure why they are disappearing and I cannot figure out how to make the link reappear in the accordion list. Thanks!

    Here's the link: https://hwpi.harvard.edu/fsan/development-training

    The sister page that houses all of the links in the accordion is here: https://hwpi.harvard.edu/fsan/links

    The order should be content type first and then "Import"

    The Plan

    Fix the bug so that the widget slider works correctly

    Description

    The dots at the bottom you use to navigate between the slides in the widget slider are inconsistently clickable. Here's an example: https://hwpi.harvard.edu/375years/geo...

    Sometimes they work to link to the desired slide, sometimes not. I briefly checked on the slideshow widget and it's working fine there.

    Examples:

  • Info in thumbnail profile truncated

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix auto trim functionality. It should not trim in the middle of a sentence. Rather, the trim should occur to nearest period.

    Description

    There is some strange truncation occurring in the thumbnail profile display on our website. I am attaching a picture to give you an idea of what I mean. Also, here is the url of the page in question: https://philosophy.fas.harvard.edu/pe...

    Can someone explain to me why the system does this? There seems to be no consistency to the truncation at all.

    I would prefer either that the thumbnail profiles display a complete sentence or that they don't display anything at all because this looks very unprofessional.

    Thanks.

  • Cannot edit certain publication attributes created during citation import

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the bug so that the user can edit any field that is displayed in the landing page

    Description

    Sometimes when I add publications using the import feature, there is publication information that gets imported that I have no way of editing.

    Usually it's something like the DOI so it's fine, but occasionally there will be incorrect/incomplete information, such as in the following example: https://biodesign.seas.harvard.edu/pu...

    I downloaded the BibTEX file from the official journal website and imported it. On the publication detail page, it says:

    Date Published:

    09

    Obviously this makes no sense and needs to be fixed, but in the edit publication interface, there is nowhere I can modify this field. Even expanding "Publication Details" at the bottom, there is nothing under "Extra Fields," so I don't know where the above imported information is stored.

    Description

    It appears that the default news section is displaying news items out of order, i.e., by post date instead of news date.

    I have also confirmed this behavior on my test site:

    The Plan

    Fix the display for enable/disable apps screen on https://hwpi.harvard.edu/kates-site and https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/katestest/

    Description

    The enable/disable apps screen looks like this on chrome at 100% zoom level:

    img

    It looks as it should at 110% zoom, but most of the time it is distorted and pushed to the side. On Firefox it is distorted at almost every zoom level.
