  1. Add a Capatcha to view e-mail addresses

    We should have the ability to add a capatcha or a way to verify it's a human viewing the e-mail addresses on the staff directory.

    • Set a cookie to remember the location a user comes from when they sign in via SAML authentication

      Blackboard should set a cookie to remember the location a user comes from when they sign in via SAML authentication. That way, our employees can proceed with sign in if they happen to hit a staff-only link first.

        • Add a link option to the image app.

          It'd be cool if I could post an image with the Image App and supply a link that clicking on the image would take you to. As it stands now I'm having to use the Content app. This isn't a huge deal, but it does seem to be an omission in functionality.

          • 301 redirect mapping

            It is essential for customer service that 301 redirects are put in place when moving websites. BB should offer this service. I have never launched a new website with out this strategy in place and it will be detrimental to google search engine results. Please implement this.

            • We would like to see better analytics.

              It would be nice to have an analytics tool similar to google analytics.

              • allow subsites to have and maintain their own set of friendly urls

                Currently friendly urls all start from the root of the main site. I think each site and subsite should be able to have their own friendly urls. So you could have http://yourschool.schoolwires.net/athletics as well as http://yourschool.schoolwires.net/school1/athletics and http://yourschool.schoolwires.net/school2/athletics

                • SEO - Customized URL and Website Mapping

                  There needs to be the ability to import a website site map/ url mapping for SEO. The urls that are generated are long and not search friendly. Like many other districts, our website is our main form of communication. A page that is about academics that has the following url, does not follow basic web development practices. http://hempfieldsd.orgdomain/228

                    • Big Glitch in Smore Integration - New Emails Saving Over Old Emails in Smore

                      While it is possible to copy, rename, and update Smore content within Blackboard - resulting in archived copies of each email/newsletter - on the Smore side each new issue is simply saved over the old one.

                      Thus, while I have several issues of my Smore e-newsletter within Blackboard, Smore treats them all as one issue, and the viewer stats are meaningless. Smore confirms that each time I copy an issue within Blackboard, edit, and publish - Smore's system simply treats it as an update of the original issue. A big problem as our visitor "counter" that Smore includes for readers…

                      • Allow moving pages with nested pages underneath

                        The ability to move a page together with all its nested pages would be helpful. It is cumbersome to have to move all of the nested pages first, then the main page, then re-nest the pages, etc. This would allow for more flexibility in reorganizing a site.

                              We have duplicate pages for almost every page on our website, some duplicated dozens of times, and it is interfering with our accessibility scanning service. How can we eliminate duplicate pages to cut down on the number of websites pages scanned?

                                Whenever you are in a directory view and go to Site Manager, it pops you into the main district editor not the schools editor. This is a problem for users who do not have access to this area and receive an error. Should go to the channel section that it is in.

                                • Searching all sites should not be the default

                                  The default option for search on Blackboard websites is to search all pages associated with your main domain name.

                                  This means if a parent searches for "homecoming" on High School A, they could possibly get the results from High School B.

                                  I went to Denton ISD and searched for "second grade" from Blanton ES and the first page of results were all from different elementary schools.

                                  We've had them alter the way search works on our site, but it does cost extra. Odd that this is the default. Does anyone else have issues with search complaints?

                                    Come on, gang. You updated half the user interface over a year ago, and just stopped half way through. It's not a real confidence builder when you see your CMS provider so openly fail to finish something.

                                      • Obfuscate email addresses

                                        I just learned that the Staff Directory app and the About Teacher app will obfuscate email addresses to prevent (or at least slow down) their collection by email harvesters.

                                        Since we also add email addresses in other apps (Tables, Minibases, Content), could WCM consider obfuscating all email addresses or giving content creators an option to add obfuscation? Maybe a Captcha screen?

                                        • Book App - "Year Published" displays even if not populated

                                          Recode so that “Year Published:” only displays if field is populated. Currently displays regardless of whether or not field is populated.
