[#36] Open sized window

Open sized window

Detailed description
The target attribute is removed from contents in TYPO3, technically preventing any open in new window behavior at all. Entries created with the target attribute before this cleaning definition was added will retain the attribute until the next time they are saved. Sheree would like to open a new, sized, window. This would probably require a gracefully-failing Javascript solution. Reported by Sheree Kornkven: I was just wondering if we can do anything like have a specific sized window with extra information about a term or phrase launch when clicked. This would be extra information about something. We have so much information to relate, and we're trying to find ways to make our site less cluttered. We can already make a new page launch in a new window; I'm just wondering if we can resize the page.

Detailed description
University relations requested a gallery (in spring 2007) in which to serve * NDSU photo collections (currently distributed on CD) - organize by category, with possible overlap of categorization * Request form for additional photos * NDSU official logos/graphics * NDSU athletics graphics (just a redirect to athletics) * NDSU "official" powerpoint templates (new) * NDSU campus map Features - Must have login for access to some official content, at minimum NDSU vs. not-NDSU identification - Would like thumbnails visible without login, access to full resolution when logged in - Would like to protect undergraduate vs. staff vs. faculty content. I warned that at this time we cannot reliably identify the three and that even when we can, there is no overlap available. They concede to go without this feature for now - "Persistent" thumbnails (selecting a thumbnail shows higher quality, while still keeping the "thumbnail browser" available) - Category pull-downs to "jump" to another category easily - Search - Full display to include a description - Variable qualities with friendly names, e.g. "low/web, high/print"

How to handle included images/media? Should keep a copy? Or reference original location? Keep in mind that pages use Base URL (<base href="www.ndsu.edu/" />) which may have interesting implications on generated links--use TYPO3 APIs to deal with links, not hand-made links, to avoid this. In all other cases, such as SQL, use TYPO3 APIs for highest security.

To reduce spam, enable a captcha insertion with regular mail forms. The captcha should be accessible ( www.w3.org/TR/turingtest/ ), which presents a steep challenge because it must allow * Blind visitors * Deaf visitors * Visitors with cognitive disabilities * Visitors without a mouse * Visitors with only a mouse (on-screen keyboard) * Visitors with motion disabilities (inability to manipulate the mouse to move accurately in small areas) * Visitors from foreign countries who may not be familiar with our NDSU lingo if the captcha requires sight, hearing or the ability to solve "challenges" Some possibilities that *may* be worth investigating * www.thespanner.co.uk/2007/04/13/accessible-captchas/ * www.standards-schmandards.com/2005/captcha/ An option is also to require log-in to submit the form. While the option to allow only certain people, or certain kinds of people (like staff) to submit is not yet available, it should eliminate the ability for bots to get at the forms. Of course this is only an option for forms that can assume only persons that already have an NDUS identity/password would want to complete the form.

Detailed description
Currently an RSS feed in CMS has a link of www.ndsu.edu instead of the sub-site's URL, such as www.ndsu.edu/cms/ . The URL does not reflect the fact that NDSU as a whole is probably not the right target for these news feeds. A minor bug was filed on 4/25/08 at bugs.typo3.org/view.php , which confirms my findings that the URL is "hard coded" to match the domain. We could submit a patch to alter the behavior and make use of the configuration option again.

Use international-friendly date format in pages

Detailed description
Update automatically generated visible dates in pages to use a more international friendly date format. Such a format change would reflect the fact that NDSU is a diverse community and enhance understanding for visitors who do not use the US m-d-y format and do not know if 03/04/02 means the 3rd of April 2002, the 4th of March 2002, or April 2nd 2003. It was lightly suggested by some in VPUR that this would be desirable for their news (It's Happening) but it should be applied across the board as a CMS template configuration. Dates would be entered the same in the backend, but would automatically reflect the new format in the frontend by the template rendering. If Jane, a page visitor from Uruguay, views a news article in It's Happening, the Published Date would appear like 31 Dec 2008 13:46 instead of 12-31-08 13:46 Reference www.useit.com/alertbox/20050808.html

Centralize frequently used files in a read-only filemount

Detailed description
Provide a filemount for authors to consume standard graphics files or other campus documents (maps, for example). It would be read only to authors (that is, they do not get to modify what files are available in this frequently used files area). Doing this would reduce the number of copies of these files distributed all over the place, and give authors an "out" when they are "required" to use these official files but are out of quota space. It is a more efficient use of disk space, as well. When CMS author, Bob, browses the Filelist, he sees a directory called ndsu_share in the file tree. When he expands the view, he sees files including the NDSU logo and the most recent version of the NDSU Campus Map PDF.

Details below: Provide a central file storage location for all CMS authors to use where official and/or frequently-used files are stored. The repository would be read-only for CMS authors via. the CMS authoring interface. Goals are to 1) eliminate the need for campus resource CD distribution 2) reduce disk usage by providing a means for authors to refer to the "central" copy 3) enable the university to move in sync when official files are updated (new logo, new campus map, updated campus photos, etc) This may be related to the resource gallery (https://gforge.ndsu.edu/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=43&group_id=11&atid=128) but does not necessarily need to happen in sync with it. Either one could proceed without the other.

The actual need is to design another news template that includes images. Assuming the www.ndsu.edu/itshappening/ news list uses this new template, when a visitor opens the page they will see a thumbnail of the first image from the news article image relations field. All news articles that have a related image will have a thumbnail in the list preview. All news articles that have no image in the relations field will have no thumbnail. Images inserted into the RTE will not display in the list view.

I would like to see some additional formatting options such as maybe right-aligning the Text Labels on the left and left-aligning the input fields so they have a sort of "meet in the middle" appearance. Also, it would be nice to have some way to create some sort of separation between sections of the form so the fields don't all run together (or be able to assign a "fieldset" to each section that displays the "wrapper box" around a group of fields...unless I missed where that option was). I would also like to have the option to selectively bold some of the text labels. Requested by Andrew Klein INC000000128214

Develop way to "flag" content for exclusion from Print display

Detailed description
Please consider developing a way to "flag" content areas for exclusion from the Print display. An example of common content areas that could be flagged for exclusion would be page navigation links ([Back|Home|Next] links included at bottom of page) and "A-Z Index" jump menus for pages with alphabetically separated content areas. Such content areas only serve a purpose to the screen display and are basically irrelevant to the Print display. It would be nice to have an On/Off setting to assign print visibility to a selected content area. (Not sure if this available in the back-end functionality or not. If not, maybe a new "No Print" paragraph setting similar to the "Tip/Warning/Note" options can be applied where there's no visible change to the Screen display but a "display:none" setting is applied to the Print display of the CSS.)

Summary:
Insert alternative root for breadcrumbs menu

Detailed description
For the default NDSU template, breadcrumb menus are "hard coded" to be rooted immediately under NDSU based on the assumption that any given site is located immediately under www.ndsu.edu on the WWW. However, the real-life relationship might be different. For example, Enterprise Computing & Infrastructure www.ndsu.edu/eci breadcrumb currently looks like NDSU > ECI but might be better rooted under the virtual path NDSU > VPIT > ECI This doesn't necessarily need to be political/reporting paths, this example just worked out that way. Objective - Create a facility so that site owners can "inject" added or alternative roots to the breadcrumb menu to better contextualize NDSU Web. They should be able to define the visual text, the given name, and the WWW address for each link so that the resulting link, in the case of VPIT, might look like <a href="http://www.ndsu.edu/vpit/" title="Vice President for Information Technology">VPIT</a> to keep the menu short but still provide relevant information to visitors. Note that breadcrumb menus are not available at all for the VPs template and this request is not intended to imply that should change.

Detailed description
Since these would be added on a per-template basis, add cache control headers to the www.ndsu.edu and *.ndus.edu templates. With cache control headers in place, CMS system load might be reduced as a result of cutting the frequency that visitors re-download pages. This comes at the expense of needing to reload the page (or clear cache, or close the browser as one might do at the end of each work day) to see new versions of pages, when/if they are changed. User training would need to be adjusted to remind them to click the refresh/reload button to see the new version of pages if the new version does not display at the first attempt. They probably already reload the page when they make changes, but in the event they don't, this reminder is needed.

Enable news to create two+ separate news lists and/or RSS feeds

Detailed description
This can be accomplished by using tt_news categories. Thus, a person can create a link to a categorized news page that displays only news articles having that category type. Further, because some business units may focus this priority externally to their Web home page, use the category definition to surface RSS feeds filtered by categories. For example, if there are 10 news articles in site XYZ's Articles folder, currently the site news page displays all 10 articles. If 5 articles have the category "red," 3 have the category "blue" and 2 have both categories, the categories page for "red" will display the 7 articles categoriezed as red, and the categories page for "blue" will display the 5 articles categorized as blue. Further, there there is an RSS feed which displays only the 7 red articles and a separate RSS feed which displays only the 5 blue articles.
