Weekly Web Updates – May 29

We are continuing to investigate an issue with uploading files in MediaWiki using the Embedded file button in the WYSIWYG editor. There appears to be a bug in the user API in recent versions of MediaWiki causing this. In the meantime, you can upload files to wikis using the “Special:Upload” page.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • The Directory now correctly decodes LDAP-escaped characters stored in fields, such as website URLs.
  • MediaWiki will no longer throw a mixed content security warning due to loading favicons.
  • Fixed an issue editing in Drupal with Chrome where images were not selectable in the WYSIWYG editor and image dimensions were not populated in the Edit Image dialog.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
  • Archiving Moodle.
  • Building out the configuration of our CAS servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, GO, Omeka, and the Course Catalog services.
  • Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.
  • Integrating Panopto (streaming videos) and Canvas (LMS).
