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.

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

  • 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.

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!!
