    The Plan

    Imrpove the email to add criteria for CAN-SPAM

    Description

    We have several users here at HBS report to us that the event reminders from OS events are being marked as spam here, and that "This sender failed our fraud detection checks..." Can we have someone look into this problem??

  • Displaying event taxonomy below venue

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Move see also list/section to just below the body in the markup.

    Description

    I'm posting this on behalf of a client (China Project).

    The issue is about the display of taxonomy terms in event nodes. Right now, the See Also shows up between the date of the event and the venue (see image below). The request would be to move this taxonomy display to some other part of the page so the display is a bit cleaner. it's a bit confusing to the user to have all the taxonomy terms crammed between those two fields.

    This request may be related to this one: http://community.openscholar.harvard....

    Thanks for considering!

Bug Fixes

  • Pulling content from main site into subsite

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    When you embed a widget from another site, it cuts off at the same height

    Description

    I had this system working nicely, but then last week the content became cut off. I hadn't made any changes to the site, so I'm guessing an OpenScholar update changed something. You can see the news items cut off on the following pages:

    3 item max widget: https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/enel-...

    20 item max widget: https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/enel-...

    They are pulling content form the following page on the parent site, which is displaying properly:

    https://heep.hks.harvard.edu/enel-wor...

  • Paste from Word not working properly

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Remove extra spaces and markup when copying from notepad or word

    Description

    Using the Paste from Word adds unnecessary spaces in the source code, i.e.,

    <p> </p>

    It also doesn't strip out proprietary IDs such as this:

    <span id="docs-internal-guid-5951a9bf-a603-cfb0-3cb5-2e0fda2d16c4">

    Ideally we want the markup to be clean, keep the basic formatting and links, but no classes, IDs, inline styles or additional spaces.

  • Email not sending out for registration event if the event creator is not the site owner

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the bug so that email is sent out for registration event irrespective of who creates or edits it.

    Description

    Now, if an registration event is not created by the site owner, then no email will be sent to the registrants for confirmation, for reminder ...

    This functionality should work for those who have permission of creating a registration event.

  • Embed from Web tab (media browser): whitelist of sites is barely usable

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Move the whitelist to the os doc site.

    Description

    We should move the whitelist of sites in the Embed from Web tab to the doc site. The current display of the list of whitelisted sites is long and not very usable.

    The Plan

  • College Theme menu items do not appear in chrome mobile.

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix existing css rule so that submenus appear in all responsive scenarios.

    Description

    It is my understanding that second and third level menu items do are not visible on mobile by design, based on a previous post : http://community.openscholar.harvard.....

    However, what I have noticed is that instead of not showing the second and third level items, it shows a blank red space in the College Theme. In the image below it I have used the toggle device in the chrome developer tools to show this problem.

    It should be an easy css fix I assume.

  • Change in hyperlink behavior

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Add validation for special characters in alias - does not work for custom domain

    Description

    We are seeing a change in hyperlink behavior. For instance, see: http://eye.hms.harvard.edu/cornea/con...

    I had defined the first link as /jameschodosh. At the time the page was built, defining the link this way worked. Today, the links are not working.

    When I edit the link I notice the editor has stripped the "/" from the link resulting in jameschodosh. When defined this way, the link does not work. To fix this, I defined the link as http://eye.hms.harvard.edu/jameschodosh. This works.

    Unfortunately, we are tracking down instances where links are broken as a result of this change. Please advise if there is a better solution.

    Thanks,

    ~Beth

  • Person import limit and behavior

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Import should be done in one sweep.

    Description

    One of my colleagues has 198 people that she needs to import as the Person content type to her OpenScholar site. She downloaded and prepared the import template, but when she ran the import she found that not everyone was imported.

    I did some investigation and found that there's a limit of 50 rows that are imported at once. (At least for the Person type; I haven't tried others.) I searched the documentation and Community, but wasn't able to find any information to confirm this so I'm hoping this isn't intentional and the limit can be increased.

    I also noticed some interesting behavior in the current import setup. The first time I imported my colleague's spreadsheet, the first 50 rows were created. The next time I imported the same spreadsheet, the next 50 rows were created. This continue until the fourth time, when only 48 rows were created (finishing the 198 total). However, when I ran the import one more time, 50 more rows were created, now starting back at the beginning again.

    It seems like some kind of duplicate checking is happening, but when everything is a duplicate it's back to square one as though there are no duplicates. Is this intended?

    Fix the bug so that the follow me icons display correctly

    Description

    After the update on May 22, 2017, the icons for the social networks do not appear properly.

    img

    We have 4 social networks listed as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. However, instead of showing any of those 4 icons, we are seeing a blip icon.

    Interestingly, if you click next to the Blip button, you are taken to the proper Facebook page. Which means it is just not rendering well.

    img

    This issue seems to be in Chrome. I tried clearing the cache, but it did not help.. In internet explorer, the icons appear ok as below:

    Description

    Can we remove the three period's added before read more and replace it with a single space?

    The read more and the arrow are separated in some cases, can we add code to make sure it does not split into two lines. The space, read more and the arrow should always stick together.
