I'd like to rethink the featured space on the Commons homepage, and maybe put either featured sites/groups back there OR put in a new Use Cases document

(this is coming out of the SubCat meeting)

  • Target version set to Future release

Sure. Adding the old Featured widget is easy, though we'll need agreement about who will manage and update it.

Hi Boone,

I'm happy to manage it and I'm sure that the community team can help.

Luke/Stephen: I think we can/should change the featured group/site on at least a weekly basis. What do you guys think about drawing up a calendar so that we can rotate responsibilities?

Can you make this change?

suggestion to maybe use an RSS feed generated from PressForward

  • Target version changed from Future release to Not tracked

I've made the change and put Jim Groom's blog as the featured site. It's not possible to do further configuration at the moment because of ongoing 502 errors, which I'll follow up on in another thread (now that I'm able to reproduce them myself).

That's great, Boone! Thanks!
