    The Plan

    Create new screens for content import --> multiple imports

    Description

    the plan here is to create angular based modals for the following content types: blog, news. The significance of blog and news is that they allow multiple imports to be stored.

    Specs:

    • Do Not display the tabs until an import file has been added. Disregard the Class title -- this is reference only. The title of the Modal should reflect the menu label in Import. Ex. "Class" in the admin menu import section will also be used as the modal title "Class" img

    • Once an import file has been added, display (2) tabs -- Import and Manage. The form present in the Import tab is the same as the form in spec 1).

    • Clicking the Manage tab will display the loading spinner inside the tab <span ng-show="spinning" class="spinner ng-hide"></span> This spinner is already in use in the new globals settings Save buttons. Note that multiple imports will appear in a select list -- All Feeds dropdown below. The loading spinner mentioned above will also appear in the Filter button when clicked. img

    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.

Bug Fixes

  • News "Add New > Import" function is not working

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the add new --> import functionality

    Description

    The News "Add New > Import" function is not working on my website. From the news page (https://socialscience.fas.harvard.edu...), I click on the "Add New" button and then click on "Import" and nothing happens at all (I don't even see the "waiting for socialscience..." message in the bottom left of my browser window). Behavior is the same in both Firefox and Chrome (both up to date, on Mac). This problem started sometime in the last month...

    If I click on "Add New" and then "News", the "Create News" overlay appears as expected.

  • Improve Shareability of Facebook and Twitter

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Share the image, title and description from OS to facebook and twitter

    Description

    When sharing an OpenScholar post on Facebook or Twitter, the image, title and/or description appear to be missing.

    Currently, the OpenScholar markup seems doesn't include all of the Twitter summary card information. Currently, I only see:

    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary">

    Here is Twitter card reference:

    https://dev.twitter.com/cards/types

    It would be optimal to have the title, description and an image... maybe the static file fields in OpenScholar, such as with the News content type, could generate Twitter markup for the images.

    We may also want to expand the existing Facebook Open Graph data as well. See:

    https://developers.facebook.com/docs/...

  • Fix volume, issue order discrepancy in Harvard chicago author-date citation

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    The plan here is to make some updates to the Biblio Harvard chicago author-date citation style.

    Description

    The Harvard chicago author-date citation volume and issue values should output in the same order as the pub form. Also, its standard to output the Volume before the Issue number. Lastly, we should add Pp. just before the page numbers. The bottom citation style is what the updates would look like.

  • Site Search not displaying results as expected

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the site search display

    Description

    On the docs site, I'm searching "publications app" and i'm not getting results on the first page of search results. It's the 13th result and should likely be the first result.

    The page title is "Publications App" but has a differing url (which I should fix) but as far as I've understood it, page titles are the h1 on the page. See here: https://docs.openscholar.harvard.edu/...

  • On responsive, main navigation items with sub-menus require users to double-tap to access. Looks like it's an iOS issue only.

    View or participate in the full discussion

    The Plan

    Analyze why parent links have to be clicked two times on IOS

    Description

    When using responsive themes, items on the main navigation that have submenus will require users to double-tap to access that page. Items with no submenus work fine. That is, only require users to tap once to access the page.

    Looks like it's happening on iOS 6 and 7. Working fine on Android devices. More testing needed to confirm this.

  • Contact Owner Mailto Issue

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the issue so that the from email address is the site owner

    Description

    This came in via the HWP site from Professor Pinker:

    Dear Open Scholar folks,

    There seems to be a strange and unhelpful change in the "Mail to" feature of my OpenScholar site -- messages are marked as coming from " swap@lists.hmdc.harvard.edu", regardless of the sender. This has two problems: when scanning my Inbox, I can no longer see who the message is from, and the "Reply" function is now useless.

    Many thanks for your help with this,

    Steve

  • Consistent font on Harvard Bold theme

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Fix the font issue in the bold theme

    Description

    Would it be possible to revisit the font selection in the Harvard Bold theme? Currently the paragraph style does not match the heading style or the list style. So, the pages look very odd. We can override the font selection using HTML but that makes for a lot of work. Please see example URL and screen shot attached.

    URL: https://eye.hms.harvard.edu/cornea/co...

    Thanks.

  • sender's email address (swap) looks like spam.

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Sender's name when sent from the swap email id should display as OpenScholar

    Description

    When we create a new OS user, the user will receive an email from OS. However, the sender's email address is swap@lists.hmdc.harvard.edu. The worst part is "swap" showed in listing. It really looks like a spam.

  • MailChimp form not showing up

    The Plan

    Fix the bug so that javascript and other reference files work with mailchimp embed

    Description

    We're using the Mailing List MailChimp API Key widget to embed our signup form on the Memorial Church website.

    http://memorialchurch.harvard.edu/sub....

    This has worked fine in the past, but now it's blank, just showing the frame, but nothing in it. When I switch it to the "Basic form", it displays but won't display the "Mailchimp Form" or "Link" options.
