We’re happy to announce a significant update to the OSUL Content Management System. There are a few differences for the public pages, some improvements in the administration area, and some important changes in the underlying system that will allow us to better maintain the code that we’ve used to extend the basic SilverStripe functionality.
After several discussions with Subject Librarians and general users, we changed the way that the Carmen/Resource widgets expand and collapse: there is a plus/minus sign, a common convention in most operating systems. We also enabled the content providers to choose which widgets to begin expanded when the page loads.
We also fixed a situation where the wrong title was being used in the ‘lister’ pages. This was causing the pages to appear out of what would commonly be appreciated as order. For example, on the Collections page, Archives was under T. We hope that this won’t cause too much confusion.
These are some of the more noticeable changes, but if you come across something that is not quite what you think it should be, please let us know.
