  1. Modify a principle in the Duke 21C Manifesto

    One of the principles of the Duke 21C Manifesto is stated as follows:
    ◾The purpose of education is to enrich lives and to help people achieve their individual and collective goals.
    Though I do agree with this principle, I think it overlooks the posibility that a person may not have their goals, individual or collective, defined clearly, or not at all. Education, should help an individual come in contact with varying aspects of human culture, be exposed to different ways of thinking, and other knowledge/understandings/tools that will help/facilitate him/her to explore the possibilities and find the goals h/she will strive…

      • What happened to our tag cloud? I'

        Hi Ruby, I think we used to have a tag cloud. I'm in a conversation now with Kirstyn Leuner , a HASTAC Scholar, about this feature. We used to have one. Did we discontinue with the new site? I know some of us loved them (moi) and others hated them (Mandy). Like me, Kirstyn finds them very useful for searching a site and I find them a great "at a glance" of knowing which topics are most important to a topic. Can we put it back up again on the next version of the site? We need a map and…

          Upon investigation I found that although tag clouds were showing on individual posts, they were missing from some relevant places such as topic archives. I have restored them there and several other places. Please let me know if you find any other pages missing the tag cloud block.

          Thanks for catching this!

            This feature, or as close as we can currently come to it, has been added with the deployment of our new Drupal 7 site.

            We now offer two options for deletion:
            one option for the blocking (disabling) and retaining of the account, its username, content, and identifying information and another option for anonymizing the account name and details while retaining its user-generated content.

            For security and privacy reasons both options still require the intervention of a HASTAC site administrator.

          • Sharing via Twitter, FB, + etc.

            I'd be great to have the option to share articles and content via Twitter, FB and Google+ buttons on blog post pages.

                • improve Opportunities filtering/ sorting

                  could you please add an option to sort by post date so that we could view the most recent posts, and not the ones we've already read?

                      • Add Storypal module for Storify stories.

                        Storify is a convenient platform for sharing content from diverse sources. There's a module for Drupal (http://drupal.storify.com/) that creates a field for importing Storify stories. This would allow us to share the content on the HASTAC site for comment, rather than only being able to post a link to the original story.

                        (The embed code for Storify doesn't work because users are not able to post scripts. I tried pasting the no-script HTML, but the result was pretty ugly.)

                          We love Storify and are happy to help HASTAC members use it more on the site.

                          I’ve made a change so that all users with any additional “roles” (including staff, HASTAC Scholars, and Competition winners) can now access the Full HTML input type, which permits scripts. This allows users to disable the rich-text editor and paste in the embed code for Storify and other widgets.

                          Please let me know if this does not adequately meet the need for the module, and I will reopen the suggestion.

                              After logging in, the user should be directed to the page she started on rather than her profile page.

                              This might be done easily if a token can be used ti pull the URL when clickingon the login button, eg: ".../login?destination=[token]..."

                                  Right now the site has a content type called "Documents and links" for posting files and URLs, but it might be easier for users if this ability was just added to other content types (ie: blog posts, events, opportunities, news, etc.)

                                    This feature has been added with the deployment of our new site. Files of almost any kind can be attached using the Documents & Attachments widget in most content types.

                                  • Improve curation of features & highlights

                                    Would like to be able to manually curate the Featured and Highlighted content more easily. Currently the site sorts by posted date, which does not always reflect our priorities.

                                    Suggest this be implemented using the Nodequeue module.

                                        • Make preview reflect that actual column width of live posts.

                                          Currently, blog preview displays something COMPLETELY different from what appears when the post goes live. This is because the preview function assumes that the post will use the entire content width, but in reality posts only get a small portion of the content column.
