  •  Content copied from Word

    Friday, Dec. 19, 2008
    The text editor used in the Event Calendar, Survey system, and Blog element now includes a new toolbar icon to paste content copied from Word. Use this to clean up the excess HTML that Word applies before when copying/pasting content in the text editor.

  •  About Template Inheritance

    Friday, Dec. 12, 2008
    Have you encountered this problem?  You've made a change to the navigation menu in your site's template, but you don't see that change reflected on one or more pages in your site.  This usually results from page-level edits interfering with the ability of that page to inherit template-based changes.  A Step-By-Step Guide page has been added that describes how this problem can be corrected.

  •  Commonspot Session Timeout

    Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008
    The timeout for inactive sessions has been extended to 30 minutes. After a half-hour of inactivity, you'll be logged out of Commonspot.

    The timeout for inactive sessions has been extended to 30 minutes.  After a half-hour of inactivity, you'll be logged out of Commonspot.

    You might wonder, "why does it have to timeout at all?".  There are a couple of reasons for this control being in place.  One is to guard against unintentionally leaving your site content accessible to someone who happens upon a system that's unattended, but still has an active authoring session going.  That would present the opportunity for unauthorized access to your site's content, and possible content changes or deletions.  Another reason is to help maximize the number of available authoring sessions.  There's a limit to the number of active authoring sessions for the shared user licenses, and so if an authoring session was left active indefinitely, that would reduce the availability of authoring access for other users.

  •  Commonspot Contributor Guide

    Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008
    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.
