  •  Quick Commonspot Login

    Friday, Jul. 17, 2009

    You can speed up the process of logging in to Commonspot by un-checking the "Show Pending Actions" box in the login form.  This is checked by default, and will generate a list of pages waiting for approval, work-in-progress, and broken link reports.  If you're just logging in for a quick page edit, you can bypass these reports and save some processing time for Commonspot by unchecking that box when you log in.

  •  Web Server Database Change

    Wednesday, Jul. 15, 2009

    On Tuesday morning (7/14) one of the database servers that supplies content for the www site failed - this caused sites such as the Phonebook, Event Calendar, and Commonspot blogs and surveys to display errors while the server was offline.  On Tuesday night, this database was migrated to new hardware.  If you notice that updates or new data submitted on Tuesday to any system on www is not displaying as expected, please contact Brian Washburn in Media Services (x1993).

    Update: The outage scheduled (mentioned in today's Site Admin meeting) for 4 to 4:30pm has completed, and access to the blog, survey, and event admin consoles has been restored.

  •  Template Gallery Issue

    Tuesday, Jul. 7, 2009

    Following the Commonspot 5 upgrade, we're seeing an issue with the Template Gallery listing; some user's templates are not listed in the gallery.  If you're creating a new Commonspot page and don't see the template you need in the Gallery, the work-around is to copy an existing page that's based on the template you want, and save that as your new page.  We hope to have the Template Gallery issue resolved fairly soon.

  •  Commonspot 5 Upgrade

    Tuesday, Jul. 7, 2009

    Commonspot was upgraded to version 5 this morning.  If you haven't yet seen the overview of Commonspot 5 in the Web Publishing site, you might want to review that - there are some user-interface changes for authoring.
