  1. Allow user HTML

    I know HTML and can best format my own input.

  2. 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.

    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.

  4. 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!

  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. Toggle Items on Dashboard

    The "toggle items" button on the dashboard puts the checkboxes over existing text, making it very hard to read. Also, looks sloppy.

  7. Categories for Feedback

    Text in categories on feedback form is invisible unless moused-over in Firefox. Displays properly in Chrome. Both on Kubuntu Linux.

  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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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. 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.

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. Newsletter footer should be more visible

    The lines of text at the bottom of the newsletter, especially the one that says "Click here to forward to a friend" should be lighter grey or white so that they are more readable.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
