Upgrades/ Outages

We are delighted to announce that we will be upgrading OpenScholar. The upgrade will take place on Tuesday, January 30th from 6:30am-8:00am. During this window, visitors to your site may receive a maintenance notice and you will not be able to login to make edits to your site.

This update introduces the following enhancements:

  • New Enable/Disable Apps page design (functionality will remain the same). For more information, please see the information below this list.
  • Maximum width for images has been increased to 2000px
  • Events app now as an Export button that generates an iCal file, so you can import that event to your personal calendar.

 

Enable/Disable Apps Page Redesign

In this upgrade, the design of the Enable/Disable Apps Page has changed. The functionality will be the same as before.

The design now seperates out Apps that are Enabled from one that are set to Disabled on the site.

To Disable an App, all you need to do is check the checkbox in the Disable column. Then the App will be sent to the botton of the sceen under Apps not currently used by this website. The Private Setting has been replaced with Site Members and the Public setting has been replaced with Everyone. The drop down menu to select an App's Setting has been replaced by a bubble displaying both Members Only and Everyone at the same time.
