Description

The current profile pages are outdated and need a refresh to reflect the latest design of the Commons. Rather than having a tab interface, we are going to separate out a "Public CV" that users can customize and their "Commons Activity & Settings". I've attached some initial screens for reference.

I wonder if we are treating undergrads as second tier members with the CV page. Does anyone like the idea of allowing them (or any other member) to have a "personal page" on the Commons rather than a CV? So a new member could opt to create a CV or a "personal page" (and be able to switch the type back and forth). And I guess a personal page could be either public or private.

Hi Scott -- that is an interesting question. Would it feel more open to undergraduates, do you think, if we called it a Resume/CV page?

As a matter of principle, I think it would be okay to have element of the site that would cater to faculty/grad students/staff since it is an opt-in element rather than an automatically created part of the site for users. I am interested in thinking about ways we can make the naming of it more approachable for all audiences, though.

Maybe a question for more academic types here, but doesn't a CV apply to undergrads too? If the idea of one is to write out your experience, academic and otherwise, don't you list degrees etc that are in progress as well as completed?

A CV for an undergrad would be shorter, but the same would be true for a resume or anything else. I like the academic slant of the CV labeling, as we discussed in prior meetings the Commons leaning into its academic side.

Going with "CV/Resume" is more clean in a way, but I think most people know what a CV is, and we could always use documentation for those who don't. I like keeping it simple if possible -- same for whether we'd offer a different kind of non-CV page that was opt-in and customizable. Everyone would still have the standard, autopopulated profile page with their feeds to start.

Adding a few watchers to this ticket and following up on a data question from last week - we'd like to know how many users have filled out the below elements in their profile, so we can better determine which ones to keep and how to handle them in the design. Boone, let me know if anything unclear as you look into this.

Progress on the front-end editor... front. :)

Here's a short video walking through some thoughts: https://www.loom.com/share/f9bead9bfdc94eee82e5fdde95916a8e

I've extended Automattic's Blocks Everywhere plugin, which uses Automattic's Isolated Block Editor package. At the moment, the best experience is with the latest version of Gutenberg activated, though I don't think it would take much to rework Blocks Everywhere so that it isn't required.

Quite a bit of the editor UI is intentionally hidden. It seems like it would be nice if we're able to implement patterns/blocks in a way where no class names need to be applied.

Right now I have every field editable, but we can lock specific blocks or enforce a pattern that always retains things like profile image and the various navigation buttons.

I'll work on actually saving the content next.

Sara - I think we can be pretty flexible with the layout here. Action buttons could go in content or outside of the frame. Let me know if you have any questions.

Boone / Ray - I'm guessing this approach can be packaged in a new plugin—CAC CV Editor or something—that is activated on the main site. The front-end editing code could be extracted if it is ever needed for something else. I'll start poking at an actual branch next week, but please let me know if you have any thoughts or if we need a ticket specifically for that integration.

Awesome, Jeremy! Hopefully this will spark Sara's imagination.

It seems like it would be nice if we're able to implement patterns/blocks in a way where no class names need to be applied.

I always say this when I start building block-based projects, and I never succeed :) But it gets a bit easier with every version of the Block Editor.

A standalone plugin makes sense to me. It's likely that we'll need some additional infrastructure around it - editing permissions, integration into menus, any CV-specific custom blocks we build in the future. A plugin would be a natural home for these things. It would be nice if we could build in such a way that we're somewhat theme-independent, though this is just a nice-to-have.

Hello all, as per the dev call on Tuesday, I've set up #17768 (CV Editing and Publishing) and #17769 (Account Settings Tab) to break off the tasks we feel ready to start developing while Sara is away given the design work she's completed on them already. We'll combine this development work with that of the other items in this overall ticket once she's back and we can flesh out the other elements.

I know we've used this ticket so far as a bit of a catchall for everything rolled up into it, but let's try to use the subtickets (I'll create more as needed) for more targeted updates, especially since Jeremy has taken the lead already on the CV Editing and the Account Settings I believe will fall to Boone and Ray.

Hello! Here is the latest (unfinished) Figma for the Inbox (messages + notifications) so everyone can see it. I don't know how to create a subtask to put it in - so I thought I'd throw it here so that people can have eyeballs on it while I'm out. https://www.figma.com/proto/0Ke5bCwheE5SXXkT6wDd2l/CUNY-Design---Spring-2023?page-id=2900%3A84364&node-id=2900%3A87036&viewport=4098%2C6553%2C0.13&scaling=min-zoom

In this week's dev call, we talked about keeping the user's Public Portfolio page while rolling out the new Commons Profile and Account Settings design changes in case the CV Editor is not ready for the next release.

I've added a commit that ensures this is possible - https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/17993ab5124c0cf00fe5f770baa650dec4e61bdb . For this to work, deactivate the CAC CV Editor plugin and then check a user's profile and you should see the user's Public Portfolio page again. I need to make a few more changes like changing the "View / Edit Public CV" button so it says "View Public Portfolio" when on a Commons Profile page. Do we also need to adjust the "Account" breadcrumb located at the top?

We also talked about perhaps adding some basic styling to the Public Portfolio page so it matches parts of the new design. This probably means changing the background color, fonts, padding, so nothing too drastic here.

Many thanks for this, Ray. So does it seem then that we would be able to move ahead then with releasing Settings on its own before CV, without creating a lot of temporary/transient work for ourselves or confusion for our users?

Actions #15

Updated by Raymond Hoh 6 months ago

Yes, we should be able to move forward with just releasing the Commons Profile and Account Settings changes before the CV Editor is deployed in a later release if we choose to do that.

On cdev, I've deactivated the CV Editor plugin so the Commons Profile and Account Settings pages can be tested alongside the existing Public Portfolio page.

Before testing, make sure to clear your browser's cache or do a hard refresh in your browser. You can do so with the following keyboard shortcuts:

  • Chrome, Firefox, or Edge for Windows: Press Ctrl+F5 (If that doesn't work, try Shift+F5 or Ctrl+Shift+R).
  • Chrome or Firefox for Mac: Press Shift+Command+R.
  • Safari for Mac: Press Command+Option+E to empty the cache, then hold down Shift and click Reload in the toolbar.

I've added a first pass at refreshing the Public Portfolio page with the new redesign. This is available for testing on cdev. For those unable to access cdev, I've attached a screenshot of Matt's Public Portfolio from cdev.

Sara, let me know if anything needs tweaking.

Updated by Colin McDonald 6 months ago

Thanks Ray, I've taken a quick pass through and this is looking promising to me. Once Sara's signed off, I'll add it to our list for testing for the intermediate release.

One small thing I noticed is that the Edit button on your "public portfolio" page says Edit Public Profile when it should probably say Edit Public Portfolio, keeping the terminology consistent for now until we do away with the "portfolio" aspect in the CV release.
