  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.

  2. 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.

  3. Allow user HTML

    I know HTML and can best format my own input.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. New Topic

    Economics would be useful.

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Star gazing groups when the weather allows. Exploring constellations that are observable.

    I have a fun idea for local support of the community where I am in Florida. For Youth and interested families. How do I present and collaborate with others,here?

    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 .

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
