  1. An advanced search page that filters all content by all possible criteria

    Would like a way to do complex searches that span a variety of criteria. For example: all groups or users with a specific topic, or all wiki pages edited since a certain date.

    The advanced search would expose nearly all the filter available and let users do it their way.

  2. Filter Fix

    Using latest Mozilla, orange buttons in left window for filtering between Job Opps, CFPs, and Grants do not work for me. Correlative links in right nav area do.

  4. Keep members from being involuntarily logged off

    Members are getting logged out unexpectedly when visiting certain pages, or after not using the site for only a brief period of time.

    If this happened to you, please add a comment with as much detail as possible. For example, what page causes you to get logged out? If it's a time issue, how long were you away from the window with hastac.org in it, and what else where you doing?

    Please also let us know your operating system and browser version. Thanks!

  5. 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.

  7. Post-login redirect to origin instead of profile

    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]..."

  8. Bring back statistics about the number of reads

    I wish we could still see how many reads our posts get. The old site had that functionality. I want it back.

    I’m happy to report this is done! It is only visible to users when signed in. It gets data from Google Analytics so is much more accurate than before, and has negligible load on our server.

    You can see the view count with the meta data on the left side of each post.

  10. Make the immediate details of the site readily available to users

    Took me a few minutes to figure out exactly what the purpose of the site was.

    We’re always working to better explain HASTAC, which is an inherently complex organization. The web site seeks to balance the needs of our members with the interests of new visitors.

    We’re open to any suggestions about how to do this more effectively. We are currently considering a splash page to greet new visitors, for example.

  11. Mobile redirect and page content

    I tried following this link on my phone, and the result had the right page title but only showed the tapocs/tags menu (twice) and no content beyond the author's name.

    Link followed: http://hastac.org/blogs/nancyholliman/2011/08/25/failinglearning-failingfailing-whats-difference#comment-18154

  12. 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.

  13. Explore possibly-related posts

    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.

  15. Points page

    The points page for individual users is confusing. Will there be descriptions of what they're for? Also, why are there negative points being added? Needs documentation and clearer interface.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. That the site allow us to put captions on the images we upload.

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

    Completed as part of new site / relaunch of July 2015.

    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.

  19. 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…

  20. Add "teaser break" button to wysiwyg editor

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

    Completed as part of new site / relaunch of July 2015. Teasers are now automated by the site or via a summary field in certain content types.

    This button is currently enabled only for administrators. I think we can make it available for regular users as well.
