  •  Missing Commonspot menus

    Thursday, Jul. 22, 2010

    We've had a few reports of problems with Commonspot pages that aren't displaying the menus associated with the main toolbar (Tools & Information, Page VIew, Properties).  This can occur when a page cache file is not completely assembled.  To fix this, you'll need to clear the subsite cache using the Subsite Administration forms on the cms server:

    [your subsite path]/admin.cfm

    Expand "Subsite Properties" and click the 'configure subsite properties" link, expand the "Caching" section, and then click the Clear Cache button.

    If you then refresh your view of the page that had been missing the menus, they'll be available.

  •  'ShareThis' widget added

    A new custom element is available that can be used to include the "ShareThis" widget on any Commonspot page.

    A new custom element is available that can be used to include the "ShareThis" widget on any Commonspot page.  ShareThis allows users to easily reference your page content in social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.  The ShareThis widget can also be enabled in a Commonspot blog using the default theme.  Look for the "Show 'ShareThis' link" option in the Settings tab when configuring your blog display - if enabled, the ShareThis link will be displayed above the blog post title in the single post view.

  •  Commonspot page properties form changes

    Thursday, Jul. 1, 2010

    Some of the fields have been removed from the form used to create a new page, or edit existing page properties.

    Some of the fields have been removed from the form used to create a new page, or edit existing page properties.  The category, keywords, and confidentiality fields are no longer included in this form.  The category and confidentiality settings aren't used in our site to organize content or control access.  Meta keywords are not used by many search engines, including Google, and so the extra step of adding page-level keywords is no longer necessary.
