Updated March 24, 2017

The Help Desk team is constantly working to update our documentation. Recent changes are noted below. We plan to post regularly about these updates.

Updates for the week ending March 24, 2017

  • Accessibility, Copyright & Privacy Compliance - Linked to a resource that describes how screen readers parse pages and clarified the areas we can add Alt Text.
  • Column Control (Core Components) - Two new settings (4½-4½ and 2¼-2¼-2¼-2¼) are now available for experimentation in Wide-Right (nine column width) pages. Be cautious -- these have not yet been tested for all components.
  • Determining Page Publication Status (Publishing and Restoring Pages) - Updated wording and added a screenshot.
  • Known Issues:
  • Profile Report [pilots only] - New report compiles data about department faculty profiles.
  • Code Deployment
    • 3/22/2017
      • New Brand (pilots only): a few fixes to the new brand look and feel.
      • New Brand (pilots only): the old tabs component now works again in the new brand. The look is updated to match the new tabs. There is a warning when in author mode to upgrade to the new tabs component. The old tabs will remain available in the new brand mode until all profile migrations are complete.
      • Profiles: There is a new profile report available for users of the new profile shared content system.
