Weekly Web Updates – July 30, 2018

A new Service Catalog is live to list technology services provided at Middlebury. The information in the site is still being updated.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • Overhauled the events system on the Institute website with a new design and functionality to allow editors to pick the maximum events to show in a list with different displays depending on how many events are shown.
  • Profile lists on the Institute site can be configured to show certain fields, making them easier to use for lists of invited speakers and other non-faculty listings.
  • Program newsrooms on the Institute site can now have their own tag-based category navigation.
  • Editors can now decide on the position of the title for the featured news story on the Institute site homepage.
  • Fixed an issue where our WordPress sites were unable to syndicate RSS from our Drupal sites due to a new caching system.
  • Always include the designation key when looking up past gift years on MiddSTART to ensure we can show these reports.
  • Reduced the number of related stories shown on a news story in the Institute site from four to three to bring this in line with other grid presentations on the site.
