You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Make content well wider

    Move the meta data to above the body and put embedded content into a floating DIV (allowing text to wrap) so that the body of the post can use that width.

    • List of Groups

      It would be great to be able to see a page that is simple a list of all the groups that exist rather than have to page through.

        • 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.

              At the bottom or side of each post it would be nice to have a few automatically suggested posts that have similar tags, topics, or author.

              • RSS feeds for user blogs need longer time frame

                Glad to see RSS feeds for individual blogs. However, it seems like either only posts to the new site get listed or the window for syndication doesn't go back very far. My feed, for instance, (http://hastac.org/blog/1389/feed) only lists one post.

                  This might have been a bug. The site is set to show the last 10 posts in feeds by default, and when I look at your feed I see 10 posts going back to February 2010.

                  Let us know if you still have problems with this.

                • Make it to possible to search for groups by keyword (in groups page)

                  I was trying to find a specific group and I knew the title somewhat. I didn't know the tags or the categorization, though, so when I tried to search for the group within the group page, it was difficult. I ended up searching the entire site. I found the organizing/searchable categories under Groups to be kind of confusing. Thanks for all you do!

                        Sorry, there were some issues with the A/V set-up at the Hirshhorn. When possible in the future we will use the Duke Ustream channel as it is ad-free. Thanks for the feedback.

                          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?

                          • Italics

                            I was able to turn italics on but not off. Glitch? Or a trick I'm missing? I ended up deleting italicized words in order to go back to roman characters.

                              We need the "teaser break" button in the wysiwyg editor. It's not there at the moment, which makes it hard to control breaks.

                                  You can create a blog entry on our site to share your idea, or even create a group if you find other members who want to work on this with you. Get started at hastac.org/user/register and then hastac.org/node/add/blog .

                                • Can the text box for inputting tags be longer?

                                  The text field for inputting tags is fairly short - long tags (like center names, university names, conference names) get cut off, and it's hard to see what you are selecting.

                                    Sometimes a caption is wanted, either to add credit for the image or to add a little parenthetical point. Or both.

                                      Captions can be added inline for body-area inline images using a line breaks and free text input. Image titles and alt tags can be added for any Featured Image or inline image. Alt tags are recommended on any image that you upload to aid the use of screen readers.

                                    • 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 the Topics experience more consistent

                                          Too many different way to browse topics (front page, topics page, topic and sub-topic pages) with different displays. Make the experience more consistent and predictable.
