The Profile element, and a few others in Commonspot, allow you to re-use existing content in other pages by selecting data with a custom filter. Find out more about using filters to select data for display in this overview and tutorial.

The database server used by Commonspot is scheduled to be upgraded on Thursday morning (3/25/10), beginning at 6 am. During the upgrade, Commonspot pages that rely on dynamically-generated content from the database will not be displayed. We expect that the upgrade process will take less than an hour.

We've removed access to the Profile Element temporarily - this element contributed to the cms server problems we experienced this week. We will be working with this element early next week, and expect to have access to it restored fairly soon, although it may be a few days. Please contact Russ or Brian if you have questions or concerns about this change.

We've been able to resolve the Commonspot authoring and replication issues - replication just ran, so anything published on cms between 3:15 yesterday and 2:15 today should now be represented on www.scu.edu.

The text formatting options normally available in the Commonspot text editor's Style menu are missing if you're using Firefox - they do appear for IE8. A set of patches released today by Paperthin fixes this problem - we've installed those on the development server, and will schedule these to be applied on the cms server on Monday, 3/8.
