Thanks Ed. It looks like they are running Elementor Pro plus some addons, it may be something associated with that. But you have given me some ideas to dig into.
Our installation is program-specific with Site providing course content and the CBox set of functionality. Students each have a portfolio sub-site on the installation that they use to do assignments which typically manifest as blog posts on their portfolio site for one or more courses.
While I’m not keen on filling up the main site with posts derived from RSS feeds, what would work well is an RSS feed stream driven by just the students in the given class. What the faculty are after (also of use to participants to access each other’s work) is notification that a student has work ready and a convenience link back to their portfolios.
RSS would work wonderfully for that. I’m planning a rework of our child theme following the completion of this term. The more recent versions of OpenLab provide better customization access to the side bar and the potential to add widget areas. A perfect spot for such a feed.
