  1. Remove ( ) around district name in automated emails

    When a new user registers for a website account, they receive an automated email with the subject line "Welcome to the (Lincoln Public Schools) Website". Please remove the ( ) around district names. It does not give a good impression.

  3. 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?

  4. Complete the UI update

    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.

  5. Directory Pages should open to edit in the Channel section they are under

    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.

  7. Duplicate Pages

    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?

  8. 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.

  10. Site Search should work

    The search feature should search all pages, even if you have a new page added. Its called indexing. WCMSupport please see the email, ticket and request.

  11. 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.

  12. Rotate Pictures

    Pictures being uploaded via cell phone come in sideways. Please allow simple image rotation to fix this problem. Mainly with iPhone.

  13. Images in TinyMCE editor do not auto adjust for smaller sized windows. But they could...

    If you add "max-width: 100%; height: auto;" to the <img style> tag on a
    picture that is inserted in a Tiny MCE editor it will make the photo image adjust in size proportionate to the size of the window.

    Right now if you look at a page with an image inserted in a Content Editor App, from a phone or a tablet, the image does not adjust in size automatically. There is not a true "Responsive Design" element for that image. This can cause the end user to either not see the image correctly or force them to use scroll…

  14. 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?

  16. Flexibility with the on-screen alert notification

    The on-screen, pop-up alert is a great feature of this template, but I would like it to be more flexible. I think it would be useful to be able to choose from various icons that would tell a different story to the site visitor. Instead of it always being a RED EXCLAMATION POINT, we were able to choose icons like a GREEN QUESTION MARK or an ORANGE THOUGHT BUBBLE that allowed us to post messages that are more than just emergency alerts.

  17. Source code user interface upgrade

    So, you know how when you View Source in a browser the code is displayed in different colors to indicate what different elements are? That would be really, really awesome to have in the Content App's Source Code view. Bonus points if you can get the code to display in it's actual hierarchy.

    The thing is, when you need to go tinker with something in the source code, it can be difficult to find and keep with with things with the current, black and white, blocky space.

    And, if you wanted to go even further, you'd make that window that…

  18. Program the contacts report to include the message field in the excel export.

    We attach our Blackboard call out reports to our Truancy Reports as backup for submission. There isn't a problem printing the report if there is only one student in the family but if there is more than one child, the excel export drops the Message Column so we don't know if the message was for Daily Attendance, School Board Meetings, the Daily Bulletin or other for which student. This is the only report we can run to include the student's absences for the entire year. Would you please include the message column in the export. Thanks!

  19. spell

    Spelling is extremely important for all websites. I would love a tool that conducts a spell check across multiple sections or the entire site. With so many pages, it's hard to go through all of them and check each page or content section one by one. (Bonus if it can check for repeated words (e.g. "a a" or "and and")

  20. I'd like to be able to use the search engine for only our district site, without pulling results from our 50+ school sites as well.

    I'd like to see a way to filter our search engine results by website, such as 'only district site,' a specific school site, or all school sites.
