V2.5 Notable Changes

  • The LSA College Homepage will begin showing events sponsored or co-sponsored by LSA @ Happening
    • 'Tile' components configured to point at events will now link to internal event detail pages.
  • "Animated GIF" component added. This component allows GIF's up to 1MB to be uploaded directly to this page component. The following is still not supported with respect to GIF images 
    • Adding GIF's from the DAM is not supported
    • Uploading GIF's larger than 1MB to the 'Animated GIF' component is not supported
    • Upload GIF's to any other component such as 'Image with Crop' is not supported
  • Improved handling for multi-day and reoccuring events from Happening @ Michigan 
    • The 'Events' component which is commonly on department homepages on the right side will only show the next occurrence of the event.
    • Multi-day events in the 'Events' component will be identified by the word 'MULTI' below the date.
    • 'Event Detail' pages for multi-day events will have links to the next ten occurrences of the event in addition to last event occurrence for a maximum of 11 occurrence links.
  • 'Pull Quote' component was added providing a better way to introduce stylized text within quotes.
  • When users create 'News Article' pages this now will trigger an automatic process tagging the news page with the department or unit top-level tag. This will facilitate sharing news across the system including from the college site with the departments sites and vice versa. More information on this feature will be communicated to users soon.
  • As communicated, images now require an internal path to link with an internal landing page. Read more about upcoming 'Slideshow' component changes.
  • Large uploads to the DAM will be restricted to 40MB. We had multiple occassions where users uploaded or activated very files (1GB+) in size, which has caused service interruptions.
  • 'Recent News' articles will be aligned better. This component features two news items side by side. The articles' images, titles and teasers will each be aligned with respect to one another.
  • The 'LSA Video Banner' now has more options controlling text color and the drop-shadow.
  • The 'Events Search' page supports optional pre-defined searches. This can now be configured with 'Events Tags' in addition to 'Events Sponsors.'
  • The 'Social' component was updated making the tab optional if only embedding one item. Other changes were introduced to better support MiVideo.
  • The improvements to the Emergency Alert messaging system ensures reliable and fast updates placed at the top of all pages when needed.
  • Additional "Handy URL's" added for four sites. This allows users to quickly navigate to the page on author.
    • Sites: /herbarium, /dyac, /lsait and /wise
    • Examples:
      • To view on author change the URL, https://lsa.umich.edu/lsait ,  to https://author.lsa.umich.edu/lsait once logged in it will redirect to the full path.
      • Insert /cf# to get the full editing experience, https://author.lsa.umich.edu/cf#/content/michigan-lsa/wise/en.html
