spent some time creating 'widgets' of some of SPIDERs bit n pieces to see how they would integrate with uPortal. Got news and classes to show up in the test uPortal system. Early observations are that it works well, but the uPortal admin interface is flakey - adding a 'web proxy' widget (which is the kind of widget that SPIDER lends itself to) seemed to be a bit hit and miss - you could add the widget config, and it wouldnt allow a uPortal user to add it. If you logged in and out again, it would suddenly start working. Whether this is down to uPortal itself or if its just the test config on the test server needs some work, not sure. Got it working in the end though, it just was a bit more work than it should be.
tweaked export results tool - SQL for admins showing qnnres in drop down was buggy.
class content category zip
class category pages now show a 'download all' option to students on the class list. This allows the download of all files in one categroy at once e.g. you can download all the "lecture slides" files at once.
classes - headings
added option to allow users to organise their myClasses under headings. On DEV server just now as it needs the menus navigation tool to be updated (see below) before I can put it on live.
BM310 lab reports
bug fix - commas in the user submitted text messing up display of saved content.
strengths/ weaknesses extension - updated to force user to select title when adding/editing an entry - prior to this users were able to store an entry with no title, which was causing it to be hidden from the user and their counsellor.
bug fixes to allow 'widgets lite' on DEV server home page to work with Safari. Can now resize widget column.
workshop jobs tool
tool for tracking/ adding jobs for SIPBS workshop under final testing- potential for use by other staff roles?
