Roadmap

Color key indicates stages in the development cycle
Estimated Release Date: August 1, 2016

New Features

  • Make redirect destination paths more user friendly

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Display the real url next to the node/[id] url inside (). Do not remove the node/[id] url

    Description

    After creating a redirect within the site settings (/cp/settings), the destination path appears as default Drupal path, e.g.:

    node/39286

    This is not helpful for the site administrator who wants to review the site redirects.

    Could it be possible to have this display the visible site paths instead? Such as:

    pages/contact

  • Exclude query string from page redirect URL

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    In case of redirect, do not append the new url to the old one. Update it to only display the new url

    Description

    Pages on iSites often include query strings, such as:

    http://isites.harvard.edu/icb/icb.do?...

    When migrating to OpenScholar, key pages are sometimes redirected using the redirects feature in the site settings:

    docs.openscholar.harvard.edu/site-settings#site-redirects

    The redirect rule matches the query string properly, but automatically includes it in the redirected URL:

    So the end result is:

    mysite.harvard.edu/?keyword=k70045&pageid=icb.page522197

    The iSite query string is meaningless on the OpenScholar site. Is there a way to exclude it from the redirected URL?

  • Option to display other taxonomy terms in list view

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Display taxonomy under individual content type

    Description

    I have a large database of people with names but no further Bio information. In this case, it would be helpful for users to see the other taxonomy terms associated with each person in the list view, without having to click into each profile. Would it be possible to add this as an option in the display settings? img

  • Add a Widget Slider

    View or participate in the full discussion

    The Plan

    Create a widget that allows an admin to compile a list of widgets that will display in the form a slider/slideshow. The widgets in the widget slider will slide into view every few seconds. Users will also have the ability to "arrow" through the widgets.

    Description

    A more practical approach to the random widget and drawing from ideas around the tabs widget and slideshow.

    It would be very useful to be able to add sliding widgets with controls. Use cases include being able to play a video while on a slide, adding links, text and images to the content of the slideshow. Sample image attached. Also on pages such as http://hwpi.harvard.edu/stories to rotate through the "Harvard Stories" widget without leaving the page or refreshing it img

  • Need better handling when users are logged out because of inactivity

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Update session handling

    Description

    This is a case. A logged-in user is logged out because of inactivity. The system shows access denied when the user tries to do something on the page. Can the system handle that better? For example, if the page needs permission to access, then redirect to login page instead of showing access denied.

  • Add search button to my sites modal

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Update my sites modal to allow search and order the list alphabetically

    Description

    Add a search bar to the my sites modal. Also, Display the sites alphabetically

  • Icons for uploaded files via the Media Gallery should render better

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Create alternative images for attached files, when displayed in the gallery

    Sometimes people upload files (PDFs, .docs) in a media gallery. It would be great if the default icon that shows up would look better. In the example below, the gallery has images and a PDF:

    img

    When landing on the gallery, things start to break:

    img

    Is there a way to use a PDF/file icon that scales up so it looks better?

  • Media gallery: Videos are too big in listing

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the video size in media gallery

    Description

    in /galleries page, the size of videos are very big, much bigger than images.

    img

    However, viewing a gallery, the size of both image and video are the same.

  • Only users with HUID or Harvard key can be site owners or create a site

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Restrict site creation and ownership only to user with HUID or harvard key

    Description

    Only allow users within Harvard to create a site or own a site.

    User logs in using the harvard key or HUID - have permissions to have any role in a site as well as create a site.

    User logs in using their OS account, but it is not linked to an HUID - do not have permissions to create a site or be a site owner, but can be an admin or any other role in a site

    User logs in using their OS account, but is linked to an HUID - same as 1 - have permissions to have any role in a site as well as create a site.

    Existing OS users who are site owners should not be affected.

Bug Fixes

  • Widget Malfunction - Filter News by Month Widget

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the pagination in widgets

    Description

    HSCRB website has a Filter News by Month widget set up by HWP team when we built the site. At the bottom of the widget it says "1 of 5 next >" but when you click on next it is empty. All of the missing months are showing up as broken links on siteimprove.com and the last time they were found was 23 days ago.

    Here is the page with the problem: http://hscrb.harvard.edu/news/new-app...

  • Blog import not working.

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the blog import process so that old imported items still show.

    All items from the atom feed http://blog.openmicroscopy.org/atom.xml were imported into blog. Then all imported nodes were deleted. Going back to the manage screen no items where shown in the list. The items should show and you should be able to import if the node has since been deleted.

    This can be seen on the site imc.hms.harvard.edu in projects in the dump created prior to 10am June 28th.

    Description

    I am attempting to import entries from another blog. I was able to do it once, but he order of the entries was wrong. I could not see a way to reorder them so I deleted everything and tried to import the blog again. Now I can't import the blog. In the blog entry window I can see the name of the blog I want to import but it says "No results." Clicking on the blog name to refresh does not help.

  • Taxonomy URL incorrect with certain term

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the taxonomy to direct to the right url

    Description

    Hello!

    My website is sociology.fas.harvard.edu.

    We use SiteImprove to make sure we don't have any broken links and the past two days one of our taxonomy terms has been showing up as a broken link.

    The one giving me the issue today is the "Feature" term on http://sociology.fas.harvard.edu/publ.... When you click on the "Feature" term it takes you to http://sociology.fas.harvard.edu/publ..., which is not an active link. It should take you to http://sociology.fas.harvard.edu/feat....

    But when I went to edit the "Feature" term, it is listed correctly in URL path settings. I'm not sure how else to edit it.

    Help please!

    Batch operations in the content repository should work for any number of entries

    Description

    I'm trying to apply a taxonomy item to many "people" on my site, but every time I try to do so for more than 24 people (the maximum number of people visible on 1 page of the content repository), I get the following error message:

  • Widgets in "All Sections" of /cp/build/layout screen are inconsistent

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Make that widgets placed in the "all section" of the /cp/build/layout screen appear in the layout of every page--unless a user then goes to another "section" and removes it from the layout.

    Description

    It seems the widgets in All Sections (dropdown) of the /cp/build/layout screen are not consistent across all pages of a site. The expectation is that it will appear in all pages of a site, unless I go to a specific section (in the dropdown) and remove it. I havent narrowed the inconsistency down to a particular content type/section.

    The Plan

    Fix the bug so that Inline images with captions render inside paragraph tags

    Description

    For some reason, inline images (images placed inside/floated inside paragraphs) with captions, render outside of the paragraph tags. This is problematic because paragraphs below the above mentioned scenario will not be margin'd properly.

  • Media Gallery issues with adding media.

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

If the youtube video is already in my media gallery, then after pasting the url in the web tab and saving you are redirect to the library tab where the new file is not listed and no duplicate warning is displayed.

    The Harvard Asia Center's News page (http://asiacenter.harvard.edu/news), as well as the News/Announcement "list of posts" widget for the news on the homepage (http://asiacenter.harvard.edu/) is automatically including a "Read More" link listed twice. It doesn't appear to make a difference whether I include a teaser break or just a regular paragraph break. We only want and need one "Read More" link, so we're looking to get this fixed. Thanks!

Infrastructure Upgrades

Hotfix

  • Emergency Hotfix - July 13th 2016 16:00 UTC (Noon EST)

    https://github.com/openscholar/openscholar/issues/8679

    Possible vulnerabilities - Remote code execution PSA-2016-001 https://www.drupal.org/node/2764899

    We will need to schedule time to look at impacted modules and patch vulnerabilities if required.

  • Entity Module should be pointing to a specific version

    https://github.com/openscholar/openscholar/issues/8695

    There are recent dev commits that happen to line up with our instability related to many fieldconfiginstance calls from (mainly) entitymetadatawrapper. I will downgrade to the most recent stable release.
