Weekly Web Updates – September 26, 2016

Updates

Fixes and Tweaks

  • The Bread Loaf School of English site has a new header.
  • Fixed an issue that was preventing the group permissions dialog from working on Drupal Webform “who can view data submitted to this form” screens.
  • ESL courses in the MIIS Course Hub now show links to the class roster and properly sync their rosters to linked Canvas sites.
  • The Library & ITS Internal blog will now show syndicated posts locally so that in-site navigation doesn’t bump you out to an external site. The bottom of each syndicated post will have a link labelled “Read more and comment” for those who wish to view the content at its source.
  • Removed 2016 and added 2019 as enrollment year options on the LS and MSOE inquiry forms.
  • MiddSTART now displays the total amount donated to the project, rather than the amount remaining to reach the goal.
  • The Middlebury and MIIS GO sites now use the Google Tag Manager, rather than the Google Analytics code.
  • We removed the Drupal Google Analytics module, which is no longer in use on any of our sites.
