  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow user HTML

    I know HTML and can best format my own input.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Newsletter archive

    Add an archive of past e-mail newsletters. (Passing this suggestion on from a colleague.)
