  •  Blog Feature Options

    Wednesday, Sep. 19, 2007
    The Blog Feature element has been revised in the new site design. By default, the featured posts are displayed using a styled list, with options to expand/collapse list items to view the blog post text. An option is available to display the featured items using the "directory list" style. Set the custom parameter display=list to apply that change.
  •  Blog Navigation Element

    Wednesday, Sep. 19, 2007
    In the new site design, the blog element doesn't include a navigation menu by default. You can add navigation for Recent Posts, Categories, and Archives to your blog page by displaying the right column and adding the "Blog Navigation" element from the Right Column category in the Element Gallery.
  •  Replication Frequency

    Thursday, Jul. 12, 2007
    Commonspot content replication from authoring to production is now scheduled to run every hour, a change from the long-standing two-hour-interval pattern.
  •  Content Layout Options

    Thursday, May. 10, 2007
    The base template in Commonspot includes a Layout element in the center column, with one cell for page content. The initial layout of content within the center column can be changed by adding rows, columns, and modifying the individual cell properties.
  •  Commonspot authoring server status

    Friday, Apr. 27, 2007
    A Commonspot patch was scheduled to be applied earlier this morning, and the application of the patch caused the authoring server to block Commonspot login attempts, and produce numerous display errors.

  •  Commonspot Upgrade Schedule

  •  Internet Explorer 7 and Tables

    Friday, Jan. 5, 2007
    If you've upgraded to Internet Explorer 7, you may find that the option to insert or modify tables in the Commonspot rich text editor is not working. This is due to a default setting in Internet Explorer that disables "scriplets".
  •  Commonspot System Maintenance

    Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2007
    Over the next two days, we will be working with the Commonspot database servers, applying a change that will allow for more available memory and improved performance during periods of peak demand.
