  •  Content Layout Options

    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

  •  Commonspot Upgrade Schedule

    Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2007
    We've completed testing of the most recent release for Commonspot, version 4.6 service pack 3, on our development platform. We plan to install this upgrade on the cms and www servers on Wednesday, Feb. 14th, starting at 7am.
  •  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.
  •  Rounded Corners

    Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2006
    A new formatting option is available for text blocks in Commonspot pages - the "rounded corners" rendering option is described in detail in a Commonspot Step-by-Step guide.
  •  Post-upgrade Commonspot issues

    Thursday, Sep. 7, 2006
    We have been able to complete the upgrade on all production servers, and content replication is current as of 12:30 pm today. Some issues remain for Commonspot authoring; there are problems with the edit and delete options for some elements, and editing elements that are placed "below the fold" in a browser window can be problematic. Developers at Paperthin are testing these issues on our site, and we hope to resolve them soon. Site performance continues to be uneven, as page cache files are rebuilt. This issue should gradually become less noticeable as the collection of site cache files is updated via page requests.
  •  Commonspot 4.6 SP2 upgrade

    Friday, Sep. 1, 2006
    We plan to install the most recent upgrade to Commonspot, Service Pack 2 for version 4.6, on Wednesday, September 6 starting at 9am. The installation process will require that we disable authoring access to Commonspot for an hour or so. Barring any surprises during the installation, we would expect that authoring access would be restored by noon on Wednesday.
