  •  Commonspot authoring back online

    Monday, Jun. 14, 2010

    We're planning on transitioning to the new Commonspot Profile element on Tuesday morning, June 15th.  During the transition we'll experience an interruption in authoring access to Commonspot.  Authoring access will be offline starting at 5am, and will be restored once this installation is complete and tested successfully.  We anticipate that work being complete by noon.  It's likely that we'll have authoring restored earlier than that, but for planning purposes anticipate noon on Tuesday for authoring access.

    Update: Commonspot authoring and replication are back online, and the new Profile system is in place.

  •  Blog post status options added

    Tuesday, Jun. 8, 2010
    The blog system now includes options for setting a status for individual blog posts. The options are "published", "pending review", and "draft".

    The blog system now includes options for setting a status for individual blog posts.  The options are "published", "pending review", and "draft".  The default setting is "published", and that setting will be applied to any content submitted through the "quick post" form.  The "pending review" setting can be used if there are multiple contributors to the blog, and someone needs to review and approve posts before they're published.  The "draft" option can be used for a blog post that you aren't quite ready to publish, but you want to save your work in progress.

    Items with a status other than "published" will not display in the various blog element themes, and will not be included in the blog's RSS feed.

    You will see the item status indicated with a representative icon in the Blog Manager's blog post list.

  •  Profile Transitions in Progress

    Thursday, Jun. 3, 2010

    Site administrators who have used the Profile element have started reviewing proflle content prior to our transition to the new Profile system.  If you haven't yet reviewed your profiles, please visit the Profile Transition page.  This will list any profiles that you can author, and allow you to decide whether to keep or delete each profile.

  •  Captcha control updated

    Thursday, Jun. 3, 2010

    The 'captcha' image control used in many online forms in Commonspot has been updated to enhance accessibility.  The 'recaptcha' system is available to users who aren't able to read the image text.
