Description

Hi All,

Can we add the Conference and OER showcase pages to the main menu on the Commons? I have access to create pages on the main site but am not sure how to add them to this main menu. I don't want to try and mess something up.

Two showcase pages to add to main menu, under "About":

Conference:https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/conferences-on-the-commons/
OER: https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/open-educational-resource-projects-on-the-commons/

Thanks!

I can add them, but could you please provide more details? Where in the menu should they appear, and what should the labels be? We already have 'Publications on the Commons'; 'OER on the Commons' and 'Conferences on the Commons' gets a bit wordy.

#2 Updated by Matt Gold 8 months ago

Here are my suggestions, with some renaming/reordering of existing items along the way:

About
  • About the Commons
  • Publications
  • Open Educational Resources
  • Conferences
  • Privacy Policy
  • Terms of Service
  • Project Staff
  • Contact Us

Other suggestions:

-- move "Image Credits" to the footer
-- use "Open Resources" if "Open Educational Resources" is too long

#3 Updated by Boone Gorges 8 months ago

  • Target version set to Not tracked

I've added the items and changed the order/wording mostly as suggested in Matt's list.

-- move "Image Credits" to the footer

This is a non-trivial change that would require modifications at the theme level. If we'd like to make this change, it should be handled in a separate ticket.

-- use "Open Resources" if "Open Educational Resources" is too long

Looks OK to use the full 'Open Educational Resources' in my opinion.

#4 Updated by Laurie Hurson 8 months ago

Thanks Matt and Boone for these suggestions and changes. The menu looks good to me.

It looks like "image credits" is already in the footer so maybe a separate ticket is not needed?

Wow -- you're right, Laurie!!

We just noticed on the community call that some of the About items from Matt's list above are missing from the redesign launch. I believe it should be:

About the Commons
Publications
Open Educational Resources
Conferences
Privacy Policy
Terms of Service
Project Staff
Contact Us

Does anyone also remember if we used to have an OER tab in the very top nav? Laurie thought we did, I'm a bit foggy...

#7 Updated by Boone Gorges 4 days ago

Can you please provide a list of URLs for these nav items?

#8 Updated by Laurie Hurson 4 days ago

Thanks Colin & Boone --

URLs are

Conferences = https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/conferences-on-the-commons/

Oer= https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/open-educational-resource-projects-on-the-commons/

I believe those are the only two that are missing

#9 Updated by Boone Gorges 4 days ago

I've added these two pages to the menu.

I know we had some issues with Contact Us and Project Staff not being on the site anymore. I don't know the history here - cdev has these pages, but they're many years old and out of date. We can add them, but we'll need new copy for each.

#10 Updated by Matt Gold 4 days ago

Sorry, Boone -- which pages are out of date?

#11 Updated by Boone Gorges 4 days ago

Contact Us and Project Staff, as they are on cdev. They don't exist on the production site.

#12 Updated by Matt Gold 2 days ago

I can say that Project Staff existed on the site last week. I worked on that page, updating names, etc, because I noticed that it was outdated.
