  •  Blog Sharing Options Updated

    Wednesday, Jun. 18, 2014

    The Blog system in Commonspot includes an option to display links to a variety of social media platforms. This option has been updated to include a sharing link for each post in the default blog theme list view, and enhanced sharing options in the blog post detail view. The shared content will include the blog post title and summary text, and if your blog post includes an image, that will be included in the content shared with Facebook.

    Look for the "Show Share This link" option in the blog element's configuration form.

    In addition to this setting, it's recommended to set any blog page to use the Custom Title option in the Commonspot page's custom properties "Settings" form. If checked, the page will substitute the blog post title for the default page title, which will improve the shared content detail as well as search engine optimization.

  •  Recovering Lost Pages

    Wednesday, Jun. 11, 2014

    If you've deleted a page in Commonspot, it can't be restored within the system. However, you may be able to recover content from Google's cached content. Prepend "cache:" to the url of your page in Google Search, and it will display the last cached version, if one is available.

    Example:

    cache:http://www.scu.edu/webpublishing/
