To give our colleagues a better idea of what’s changed in our web applications each week, we’ll be preparing this quick list for publication each Friday. Not all of the details of each change are included below, but we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have in the comments.
- A bug that caused file upload replacements to fail has been resolved. You can now replace an existing file by editing its file upload node and uploading a new version of the file, even one with the same filename.
- TIFF images have been added to the list of allowed file types.
- Added a Google Calendar content type that can be used to embed Google Calendars on pages of the site. MIIS has been using this for their events calendar for some time.
- The cache files for RSS feeds are now kept in the same location as other cache files, meaning that the feeds will be refreshed with the same periodicity as other features on the site.
- The full URL of the result page will now be shown below each search result. This was a suggestion we received from the Site Search Satisfaction Survey.
- We’re now keeping usage data on site search so we can better analyse how its various features are working.
- Updated the calendar template so that promotional calendars work properly when linking to the originating calendar.
- On the “business card” style list of profiles, the person’s name will now link to their specific profile instead of the page their profile appears on to handle the case where multiple profiles appear on a single page.
- The “my codes” area now lists your codes alphabetically for easier management. Thanks to Chris Norris for this suggestion.
- “Superadmins” now have additional features available when moderating flagged codes and for determining whether or not a code appears in the site search suggestions.
