Commonspot's content replication cycle is back on schedule, following an interruption due to database errors on the www.scu.edu servers last week. In the replication process, content changes approved for publication on the cms server are copied to the www.scu.edu servers on an automated, two-hour-interval schedule.

Two enhancements have been added to the Rich Text Editor element:. To guard against losing work-in-progress during an editing session that exceeds the time permitted, an alert message will be displayed 5 minutes prior to the end of an editing session, warning you to save your changes before the session times out. Also, a "Word Cleanup" option has been added to the form, allowing you to remove the excess markup applied in formatted text copied and pasted from Microsoft Word.

The homepage and base template CMS files were updated to incorporate the new SCU logo and tagline. Along with the logo change, the templates were redesigned to include a revised main navigation element; the "for, about, find" menus at the top of the base template include all of the audience, subject, and utility navigation menus represented on the home page in a compact form. The templates and style sheets are now based on the XHTML document type, resulting in more consistent display in current Web browsers on a variety of systems. Read and discuss the template updates on the Web Publishing Discussion page.
