This week's Conductor updates:
This past month, we added the ability to better manage a site's navigation. Prior to the update, all News for a given site lived at http://my-conductor-site.nd.edu/news/ and all Events lived at http://my-conductor-site.nd.edu/events/. As of Conductor 2.0.0, this need not be the case.
You can now have your News module at any location. Maybe you want a page called "News and Events", and want the News as a subpage of the "News and Events." So your News module could be at http://my-conductor-site.nd.edu/news-and-events/news.…
The winner of our 2011 Conductor Survey drawing was Marissa Runkle from the College of Science. She received a $50 Notre Dame Food Services gift card. Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey.
The yearly survey is a good chance to listen to Conductor users about what’s working, what’s not, and where we should invest our CMS…
This Sunday, I've updated Conductor to include a few minor tweaks, most of which are under the hood. However, we have updated Conductor's footer image to use the new Notre Dame brand standards. For more information about the new Notre Dame brand standards, take a look at OnMessage.ND.edu…
Today's deploy is all about a behind the scenes update. We have updated the underlying framework on which Conductor is built.
This update includes:
I'm busy working on a major feature for Conductor (custom data storage), but wanted to make sure to push a couple of updates this week.
This weekend's update removes an error message that was showing up in the new Uploads feature.…
The Hesburgh Library Web Department is undertaking maintenance updates to the campus search engine system—search.nd.edu. Through the week of Oct. 25, these updates may cause brief outages (no longer than 5-20 minutes) in the search system that may delay your ability to make a search. The staff is undertaking maintenance outside the normal business hours in order to minimize the impact these updates.…
This week's updates:
See where in your Conductor site an asset is being used.
On July 2, the migration went as smoothly as we could have asked for, completing ahead of schedule. After several weeks of testing and preparation, we are pleased to say that Conductor is serving pages in half the time it was before.
This is a major upgrade for Conductor, and we're excited about what it means.…
On Thursday evening, Conductor is moving to a new home. This means new servers, a new hosting company, and a bunch of new opportunities. With over 160 websites in Conductor these days, moving is a tricky process.
Not as much as we'd hoped. However we have worked towards those identified features and continued to provide small updates.
By default, all new Conductor sites will make use of a rich text editor. Textile will still be available and supported, but will no longer be our focus.
Sometimes we need to do some maintenance.
Conductor is home to 88 live sites and 54 sites in development. Its a pretty big house; And we are the house-keepers. And as much as we’d like each Milestone to incorporate noticeable improvements, like a new coat of paint, or replacing that old shag carpet, sometimes we need to do maintenance on the furnace and re-caulk the windows. Nothing glamorous, but these changes can provide future energy savings. This milestone is one of those “maintenance” milestones.…
The most exciting aspect of this deploy is the introduction of the "Admin Theme". With the Administrative theme, various entities of the University, in particular Administrative entities, can quickly have a nice looking website.
In late October, we sent out a brief survey about Conductor. It was the first of what is to be semi-annual surveys (Spring and Fall) to help us gauge the satisfaction level of our users. I hoped to share these results sooner, but I wanted to post this to the new Conductor website. So here we go.
