  1. Return a proper 404

    Search results for our site return pages that have long been deleted. Turns out that deleted pages return a 302 (redirect found) and the resulting page returns a 200 code (OK).

  2. Make the MyWay Sunrise homepage photo gallery resize consistently

    Please make the homepage photo gallery in the Sunrise template resize consistently -- i.e., keep the aspect ratio (proportion between horizontal and vertical dimensions) a constant 1.6 (like the original 1500 x 950px). Currently, the vertical dimension varies significantly in proportion to the width at different screen resolutions, causing the top and bottom of the photo to be cropped off on most desktop screens. The amount of cropping can be substantial: At screen resolutions of 1360 x 678 and 1280 x 720, the full 1500px of width are displayed, but only 460px are displayed vertically. That's a full 50% of…

  3. Add Conditional Form Type response to question

    I would like to be able to add a conditional (IF-THEN-ELSE) type statement question to a Form within Web Community Manager. We have situations where we deal with multiple school districts and need to know what district the student/parent is associated with. Based on that response will determine the remaining questions asked. IF <district> go to page 2 of survey or go to page 3 of survey, etc. Nested IF-Then-Else statements would be needed as well.

  5. connect one staff record with multiple schools

    Allow for one staff record to be associated with multiple schools. For example, we have music teachers and learning aides that work are nearly all ow our buildings, so the ability to filter our district staff directory and have those staff record appear for each school they work at would be great. This could be done by either adding additional location fields or the ability to check a box for every location they associate with.

  6. Restrict subsite directors from adding new subsite directors

    We're noticing that many of our school webmasters are not getting proper training before getting editorial privileges. We would like the ability at the site director level to restrict subsite directors from adding new subsite directors until they've gone through training.

  8. Enable a Captcha for Staff Login

    It would be great if we could enable a Captcha to our staff login page so that bots do not attempt to login. We have had issue with bots recently and are wanting to secure our site as much as possible.

  11. Register for Events - No Sign in

    With the calendar app can we remove the sign in option, or have guests be able to register. For our program we want students to be able to have the ease of pre-registering online instead of having to call. As of now you are required to sign in to register for events that are on the calendar. This does not help people who do not have a blackboard login and do not want one but to simply register for the event.

    A simple solution would be able to activate or deactivate required sign in, or make event public.

  12. App Name by Default is H1

    When using the "Show the app name on my page" checkbox, the app name will appear as H1 by default. But sometimes I do not want it to be H1 because it is in the middle of the page. This is messing with accessibility, especially since there should only be 1 "H1" heading per page. There should be an added feature to let us identify which heading size we want to use. Otherwise, I am stuck adding a ton of heading apps.

  13. Staff Directory Email Link

    I feel like this should be a feature request for the entirety of the internet but it would be amazing if Blackboard could support it. We have families who try clicking on email links in the staff directory and then think they've sent an email but nothing ever comes through. My guess is that this is user error but always hard to say for sure. It would be great if clicking the email link would copy the email address rather than opening the email client.

  14. Remove underlining when using bullets

    To disable the underlining feature when using bullets in articles for News and Features. The underlining is confusing and inconsistent and looks unfinished. Bullets should be a list not a table that is underlined.

  15. Add Tags to Site Shortcuts and Announcement Apps

    I's like to have the ability to add tags to additional list-style apps, specifically the Site Shortcuts and Announcements apps. This would allow for easier management and sharing of content from the district site to the appropriate school sites.

  16. Allow for at least six links in the footer options.

    At this time, we have 3 mandatory statements and the ADA Accessibility Statement that is required. We have to do a work-around and redirect our users to a page with multiple links instead of to the statement or policy which addresses their concern.

  19. banner

    Option to set a start and end date on photos in the rotating banner. This is almost aligned with the option to archive/hide photos instead of deleting the photos.

  20. Apps - need to keep updating them

    Please assign more people to updating existing apps and developing new ones. WCM will get old if that's not done to keep up. Many of these apps need adjustments and tweaks to work better. I don't see much progress being made in this area.
