  •  Using filters to select element data

    Wednesday, Mar. 31, 2010

    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.

  •  Scheduled Commonspot database outage

    Wednesday, Mar. 24, 2010

    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.

  •  Profile Element offline

    Friday, Mar. 19, 2010

    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.

  •  Updated: Commonspot replication restored

    Wednesday, Mar. 17, 2010

    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.

  •  Style menu options missing in Firefox

    Friday, Mar. 5, 2010

    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.

  •  Feedburner subscriptions in Commonspot

    Thursday, Feb. 25, 2010

    We have a new element available that presents a form allowing users to subscribe to receive email notifications when a blog or RSS feed is updated.  This uses Feedburner on the back end to handle the subscriptions and sending email.  Read more about this on the Web Publishing site.

  •  CSS menu in Firefox

    Thursday, Feb. 25, 2010

    The CSS menu in Commonspot's text editor is not including text formatting styles, following the recent patch installation.  We're working on a resolution to this, but in the interim you can use IE7 or IE8 to access the CSS menu.

  •  Another Firefox 3.6 text editor issue resolved

    Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2010

    The formatted text editor used in various applications (blog, event calendar, survey, others) was not fully functional in Firefox 3.6 - content was only editable in plain-text format.  This has been resolved as of  2/17 at 10am on the cms server, and the update will be applied on the www servers in about 30 minutes.

    Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2010
    The RSVP component of the Event Calendar system has been updated to allow a short description of the event to be included in an email confirmation sent following an RSVP submission. Use the "summary" field in the Event form to enter text to be included in the RSVP confirmation email
