The Commonspot Help page on the Web Publishing site includes a link to the full documentation for Commonspot provided by Paperthin. This comprehensive document describes the delivered functionality in Commonspot version 4.6 - it won't document custom elements within our installation, such as the blog, survey manager, event calendar, or phonebook elements, but does cover the basic functions of the content management system. You'll need to login to Commonspot to view this PDF.
A new system is available to manage scheduled hours of operation for SCU offices, service points, buildings, and office hours for individuals. Two custom elements are also available for display of hours schedules within a Commonspot page. Read the tutorial page in the Web Publishing site for more information.
The Flash Slideshow element has been updated to include a bug fix for a Firefox browser conflict and include a simpler navigation menu. The element can be found in the Content Well element gallery category. When viewing the element in author mode, you'll be presented with a form that will allow you to add, modify, or delete slideshow images.
Add a simple comment form to any Commonspot page. The element can be configured to allow comments to be submitted anonymously, or require an SCU Groupwise or self-generated ID and password before comments can be submitted.
The blog element has been updated to allow home page news & events posts to display two images; a thumbnail image, optimized for the 65px x 45px dimensions allowed in the homepage news & events element, and a full size image for the full display of the blog post.
