EdWeb deployment update March 2018

On March 28 we will apply the latest set of improvements, module updates and security patches to EdWeb. We will also deploy event enhancements – attractive ways for your site visitors to browse event advertisements.

Event enhancements

After these features are deployed, it will be possible to add tags to events, and then consume these tagged events in a new content type, the Event Listing.

By using a combination of free text and organisational tagging, you can define listings of your events and event programmes.

The freedom to consume feeds at three levels of the University organisational hierarchy, along with keywords, will allow you create flexible lists that are unit, school, or University-wide.

You can also set the start and end dates for your event listings, to create a current view, event archive, or listing of events starting at a future point (such as welcome week).

You can also select from three possible views for your events:

screenshot showing a calendar view of events produced using the EdWeb event listing content type

Event Listing – calendar view

screenshot of events presented in a list view using EdWeb event listing content type

Event Listing – weekly or list view

Instructions and advice on how to make the most of these new features is available.

Fixes and updates

We’ve also included the latest set of bug fixes and updates:

  • Dynamic homepage panels now allow titles containing commas
  • Web applications now take the published date from underlying content, where available
  • Review date notes do not show on published web application pages
  • Navigation style inconsistencies corrected
  • Help text updates
  • Security patches

Details of module updates and security patch details (mainly of use to technical users, or those who run EdWeb distributions) are available on the EdWeb Change Advisory Board (CAB) pages.
