  • 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.

  • 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

  • Improve the message when the site is down

    The Plan

    Fix the message that displays when the site is down

    Description

    Right now, it says

    Temporarily unavailable

    The website that you're trying to reach is having technical difficulties and is currently unavailable.

    We are aware of the issue and are working hard to fix it. Thank you for your patience.

  • Bulk operations should be available on the files screen

    The Plan

    Add bulk operations on files like delete

    Description

    We should be able to perform bulk operations on files like delete

  • Add the ability to filter “Unpublished Content” in the CP

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Add the ability to filter “Unpublished Content” in the CP

    Description

    Add “Unpublished Content” to this list for easy user searching img

  • Link Content Type - open in new tab option

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Add an option to open it in a new tab

    Description

    http://community.openscholar.harvard....

    It seems that the idea is taking hold and has been implemented in the WYSIWYG editor but I use Link Content Types extensively and would like the option for those to also enter in a new tab or window. OPTION not default - I would like the choice when building the content.

  • When adding a new person via Sync, is it possible to see which OpenScholar page their profile is hosted on?

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Display source site in sync properties

    Description

    OS added the ability to sync profiles between sites (http://community.openscholar.harvard....) but when you do that, is there a way to see which OS site the profile you're syncing is hosted on? That would be very helpful for staff whose departments share faculty members to collaborate on bio updates for the faculty they have in common.

  • 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.

  • Improve how multi-day events are displayed

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Improve the display of multi-day events

    Description

    Can we improve how multi day events are displayed without using repeating events?

    Display view: Jul 06, 9:30am to Jul 10, 12:00pm - NOTE: it looks like the event

    Actual details: Monday–Friday, July 6-10, 9:30am to 12:00pm

    using example from http://hmnh.harvard.edu/calendar/upco...

  • Improve appearance of the 2 OS pagers

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Rework the full pager, so that it contains only the essential pieces necessary for navigating. Tweak the mini pager.

    Description

    Currently OS has 2 public facing pagers. We should improve the appearance of both, especially the full pager.

    Heres the current full pager.

    img

    New pager. Note: we're proposing removal of 1) arrows from first and last link labels, 2) previous and next text labels, and 3) the first elipsis -- its unnecessary.

    img

    Current mini pager

    img

    New mini pager. Not much change here other than replacing the double arrows with a single arrow.

  • Remove the ability for users to redefine the permissions associated with the default member roles

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Make the language clearer

    Description

    From a support perspective, the ability that admins have to change the permissions of the default roles is a problem. http://docs.openscholar.harvard.edu/c...

    With the new(ish) functionally to create a new role and totally define the control, we no longer need to mess with the default roles. http://docs.openscholar.harvard.edu/c...

  • Change the name of the "wide screen" slideshow widget option

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Change the name of the wide screen to wide in the slideshow widget option

    Description

    Now that we have so many customized themes with slideshows and imagery extending to the very fullest screen width, the wide screen option within the slideshow widget confuses users into assuming that this option will fill the screen width.

Bug Fixes

  • Recurring event bug

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the bug so that exceptions are honored in repeating events

    Description

    If you create a recurring event that allows signup and elect to add an exception, this is what happens:

    1. If you add an exception for the first date in the recurring event, the event continues to display on the site and allows a user to signup. If you edit the event you can see that the first date is indeed included as an exception.
    2. If you add an exception to another date in the event, it will be removed from display and therefore the user cannot sign up.
    3. I didn't check to see what happens if you add an exception to the last date. My assumption is that it might behave in the same way as the first date in the recurring series.
  • Scholar-demo notifications

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Remove email notification for demo install

    Description

    Can we remove the notifications/ emails that come from scholar-demo?

    Currently, test user names get created when building a demo site and an email alert gets sent to the user. I'd like this to be removed. I advise users to write down their urls, user names and passwords if they want to return and use their sites.

    Also, please remove email alerts when users add members to the site. This just adds to confusion.

  • Pdf icon when clicking on title of document in LOF

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Make css rule more generic so that all file icons are 16px wide. The only exception will be the media gallery.

    Description

    Just noticed a change in the icon for pdf documents in the LOF widget. When clicking on the document title - it now takes you to a page displaying a large pdf icon. It use to have text regarding the document. I am providing screenshots. Is this a new change? If so, is there a way to remove the large pdf icon and replace with text? Also when clicking on the download, can the document open in a new window? I will add that into the idea area as well. img img

  • Images in embed media widget not scaling.

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the bug so that the image scales as per the max width set. If the max width is set, it should not default to the default width

    Description

    Hi,

    Images in an embed media widget placed in both a columns or tab widget aren't scaling properly. I am embedding a widget from another site. I left the Max Width of Media set to 0 thinking that would make it scale to the full width of the column or tab. I also tried adjusting the width, but it didn't change it.

    I am testing out the widgets on this unpublished page (http://wcfia.harvard.edu/test-page). I have the columns widget on top and the tabs widget underneath.

    The original widget I'm embedding is also on an unpublished page here: http://epicenter.wcfia.harvard.edu/gu...

    Thanks,

    Kristin

  • Control panel home button blocks menu link

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the button so that is displays correctly and the scroll shows up if the menu is long

    Description

    The home button blocks most of the first menu item ("Content") when the control panel is open.

    This is on the HDS site (I have not checked the child sites) in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

    Thanks,

    Heather

  • If content import fails, all changes should be rolled back

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Validate the import file before importing

    Description

    I just realized that when a content import fails, those rows that were processed prior to the error were still imported. I therefore have to go and delete that content either from the site or from the import file before going through the import again. I think it would be better to simply roll back the import changes.

  • Embedded video broken in listing page

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the embedded video in listing page

    Description

    This issue would occur when the embedded URL video is placed near the beginning of the body. It appears like the image below:

    img

    The way to get around is to add a break below it.

  • Trying to use the sign up for repeating events. When I try to sign up for an event that is full, this is what I get

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    When an event is full, it should display "Sorry, the event is full" even to logged out users
