    • Add ability to password protect at the page level.

      Teachers, counselors, athletics, etc all want to have links to educational resources (external sites) on their websites that are not ADA compliant. Currently, we can only password protect at the Section level, unlike what we could do in School Center. We have to keep our site ADA compliant and therefore cannot have these links available to parents/students because of the inability to password protect at the page level. Thank you.

      • 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.

        • Option to choose header style for displayed app name,

          Since many webpages are created using multiple apps, it would help with ADA compliance if we had the option to choose the header style for the app name displayed. If the app is used in the middle of the webpage, it should not have the default H1 has the app name format. To be ADA complian you might need H2 or H3 for the app name.

          • Allow color on home buttons

            It would be great to give us the flexibility to change the color of the District Home and School Dropdown buttons on the homepage. We can change the text and where it routs to, but not the colors.

            • 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…

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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?

                      • 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?

                        • Bring back the "HOW DO I..." tab.

                          This was so simple for people to understand. You searched based on your access level. You got a column for readers (articles), viewers (videos) and those that wanted additional resources.

                          Did it need some work? Sure, but the "all Blackboard products in one place" approach is really not good. It also doesn't help that you don't have the videos anymore.

                          • 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.

                            • Make "preview" work on inactive pages

                              The page preview option only works if the page is active, rendering the option completely pointless. It would be nice to see what's wrong with the page layout BEFORE publishing it to the public, you know...like previous to viewing.

                                • Google search while better does not block ads, WCM default search does not provide hot links

                                  While the Google search engine is much better, it doesn't rank the latest changes at the top so older documents found and no longer active are brought forward in the search (archived and not active policy documents) and the Find It can not search on multiple words. WCM search is very limited in that the links are not hot and searches for policy documents are not recognizable. Searching is a bear!

                                  • 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.

                                    • Have option (check box) for placing Page name directly on page rather than using Heading App. I think it used to be there.

                                      When I title a page, I want to be able to click a box that then makes the page name visible on the page. I don't want to have to add a heading app.

                                        We need friendly web addresses - make them permanent rather than just default them to domain/page etc.

                                        • Alt Text attached to images

                                          Is it possible to have alt-text attached to the image, rather than the instance? For example, when inserting an image already uploaded, you have to insert alt-text again. This means that a shared image that was originally uploaded with correct alt-text for accessibility purposes can be altered to something that is not correct. Additionally, the original uploader should be able to access and edit the alt-text in Files and Folders. This is how it is done in applications such as Wordpress.
