Bug Fixes

  • RSS Feed Widget "Subscribe" link linking to xml document

    The Plan

    Fix the subscribe link to copy the feed to clipboard

    Description

    I'm not positive how the RSS Feed Widget is supposed to work, but at the moment when a user clicks "Subscribe", it links to an XML document. I've observed it here: https://vpal.harvard.edu/blog

    and here: https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/kates...

  • Breadcrumb not showing Book page depth

    The Plan

    Fix issue so that that book pages appear in the breadcrumb trail.

    Description

    It appears that the breadcrumb does not show the book page levels. See example:

    https://hwpi.harvard.edu/joe/book/sec...

    It appears that the breadcrumb showed this in the past:

  • Widget slider navigation dots are inconsistently clickable

    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.

  • Widget Title allowing special characters

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Filter out/do not allow curly braces in widget title fields.

    Description

    This is a rare case but thought I would report it anyway. In this case, the widget title is allowing curly brackets with is seemingly interfering with the javascript for the Control Panel menu.

  • 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.

  • Site content pulling in incorrectly to facebook

    The Plan

    Fix the bug about Site content pulling in incorrectly to facebook

    Description

    See screenshots below. It's pulling in code, and often times not pulling in images. I tested with others sites that look fine so it must be on the OpenScholar side.

  • Has the use of Apache Solr changed?

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the bug so that some of the default widgets which show up as "Untitled" now show correctly

    Description

    We've been noticing that our search results haven't been as good as they usually are lately and I just notice on the layout of the search results page all the old Apache Solr widgets now say "Untitled." Has there been some change to how the search functionality works now and how we might work with faceted results?

    If so, can you offer some kind of description about what was done because I'm not finding it in the documentation either.

    Best,

    Kristin
