  • Add Export Calendar to Google Calendar Option?

    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.

  • New screen for content import --> multiple imports

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    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

  • New screen for Settings --> Enable / Disable Apps

    The Plan

    Change the label to "Updated Date" and make sure the date for each file reflects the date that any change is made to a file. Changes would include replacing a file, renaming a file, etc.

Bug Fixes

  • 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?

  • Erroneous sidebar drop down arrow

    View or participate in the full discussion on our Community website

    The Plan

    Resolve issue where arrow in section nav parent item still appears even after removing child page.

    Description

    Menu arrow appears in sidebar on page https://generaleducation.fas.harvard.... despite the sub menu web page being deleted. I checked the widget, the drop down item that was removed does not appear, nor is it in the main menu.

    Please advise!

  • Search box widget displaying on page, not on layout

    The Plan

    Search box not showing up in the layout

    Description

    https://scholar.harvard.edu/mist/home

    img

    Search box shows up on page on the right hand side and cannot be deleted. This is only for the front page. User says it just appeared one day. It doesn't show up in the layout, and cannot be removed straight from the page. When adding the search box widget in through the layout, two appear (one unstyled):

    img

    This happened recently with another site too, with the search box appearing in the exact same place and not in the layout. But it went away after playing around in the All Sections and Sections layout–can't say exactly what I did to get rid of it before, but it was acting similarly to this case.

  • disqus comments and https

    Description
