How to import a template into MailChimp

We have received a couple reports this morning that users are seeing this new pop up message that is interfering with their ability to edit content. 

You must check the box in the warning that states: "Always trust content from this publisher" to be able to proceed working with edits. 

We are working with the vendor to secure a fix that will eliminate the pop-up all together and hope to have it in place before the end of today, May17.

Introduction

If after updating your Java, you find that you are receiving a new error or warning (Image 1) that prevents you from making and saving your edits, you will need to make adjustments to the Java Control Panel on your computer.

How To Make It Go Away

  1. If you’re in the middle of editing content, save it to a text editor (Notepad, TextEdit, Word, etc.)
  2. Close your browser
  3. Open the Java Control Panel (below)
  4. Click on the Advanced tab
  5. Under Mixed Code, select “Enable - hide warning and run with protections” (Image 2)
  6. Click OK to close the Control Panel
  7. Restart your  computer (just in case)

  • Double click on the Java icon to open the Java Control Panel.

  • Click on the Start button and then click on the Control Panel option.

  • Click on the Java icon to open the Java Control Panel.

Windows 8

  • Use search to find the Control Panel
  • Press Windows logo key + W to open the Search charm to search settings

OR

  • Drag the Mouse pointer to the bottom-right corner of the screen, then click on the Search icon.

Mac OS X 10.7.3 and above

Cause

Signed Java Web Start applications and applets that contain signed and unsigned components could potentially be unsafe unless the mixed code was intended by the application vendor. As of the Java SE 6 Update 19 release, when a program contains both signed and unsigned components, a warning dialog is raised.

Best Practice Guide for Embedding YouTube Videos


Background

You may have noticed on YouTube, that after the video you’re watching ends, the player window shows a grid of “suggested videos.” These video suggestions are chosen automatically from the entirety of YouTube’s public video collection by their proprietary suggestion algorithm.

The channel owners have no control over the suggestions. In the first example, from the primary U-M YouTube account, you can see some suggestions from our channel, a paid commercial placement, and others from non U-M YouTube channels.

These “suggested videos” also appear at the end of embedded videos (YouTube videos on your own site) by default. This can sometimes lead to unwanted or inappropriate suggestions. The good news is that this behavior can be disabled.

Solution

Each time you generate embed code for a video, you will want to uncheck the box for “Show suggested videos when the video finishes.”

If you already have videos embedded on your site, it is easy to disable suggested videos without having to regenerate the embed code. Simply add "?rel=0" after the URL and before
the close quote. Below is an example highlighting the checkbox as well as the location for the code snippet. Go blue!
