Chris found a possible bug or broken link in my profile > my settings > email notifications > individual group email settings > go to my groups.
Around a year ago, the link in the words “my groups” used to take us to a fatal error message, and now, it takes us to a screen that says “User’s Profile ….. [user type]”.
I recreated…[Read more]
We tried the mu- plugin but it did not work! The file types showed in list of allowed mime types, but we could not upload LaTeX files.
We then installed your recommended plugin (wp-add-mime-types) and that did work!
Thank you, Ray! I’ll let you know how it goes when Chris has a chance to implement your instructions.
Just one question: You wrote “Besides adding the
The LaTeX files I have are .tex file extension. Are we supposed to add tex and ltx?
Our allowed file types are:
<p data-pm-slice=”1 1 ”>jpg jpeg png gif mov avi mpg 3gp 3g2 midi mid pdf doc ppt odt pptx docx pps ppsx xls xlsx key mp3 ogg m4a wav mp4 m4v webm ogv flv svg</p>
<p data-pm-slice=”1 1 ”>I know that CityTech’s OL allows tex files, for example, though I don’t know if they use the plugin you mention…</p>
Our developer went to network settings and added tex to the uploaded file types, but when we tested this in a sub-site media library, by uploading a LaTeX file, we got the same error message (“this file is not permitted due to security reasons”). We believe we are missing a final step–do you know what it is?
No, we weren’t able to resolve it–we’re stumped.
Here is a link to a post on that site in which a pdf is linked, because it refused to embed (I’m sorry I didn’t send this more specific link the first time); it’s at the very bottom:
The BMCC team has a few questions about the links that are currently inside our group badges.
From the group/profile:
-The OER badge links right back to itself.
-The Open badge links to a “some link” url that goes to a “Page not found” error (from an example group): https://openlab.bmcc.cuny.edu/groups/bus104-introduction-to-busine…[Read more]
We have an OL site in which pdfs can be added to a page, but for some reason, they all link to the document instead of embedding.
Our pdf embedder is network activated.
The siteswere originally cloned with the Multisite Clone Duplicator plugin. This could be related to the problem, but, only one other site is behaving this way, out of…[Read more]
Thanks, Ray. We have over 1,200 sites, so #2 is not an option, but I’ll let our developer know about your first idea.
However, that solution would still leave us with the bigger problem: How to activate the plugins on all the sites we identify. Also, we may as well update the two plugins on all sites; we only want users to be able to deactivate…[Read more]
Ray, I just replied to you on another forum post, and my comment did not show there, either.
I left a new comment, and the new one does show.
Is it possible that the Akismet filter is set to mark all comments with two url links as spam?
It was here:…[Read more]
Thanks for the advice, Ray! We have over 1,200 sites, so #1 is not an option, but I’ve sent your idea #2 to our developer.
We’ve more recently come to the realization that ultimately, we would really prefer to activate the two plugins on all sub-sites, so that is actually the more important task (as opposed to locating the sites that are…[Read more]
I tried to make an edit to a reply to this thread a couple weeks ago: https://commonsinabox.org/groups/openlab-help-support/forum/topic/requesting-help-with-help-pages/#post-8740
My comment disappeared, and I get an error message when I try to re-post it.
Screenshot shows that I am listed as the last one to reply, but my reply is not there.
Hi Mary et al.,
I just wanted to let you know that our integrated cbox ol Help system has suddenly started working for us. Chris and I suspect the last update (to 1.2.3) may have triggered it working, but we can’t be sure.
It seems we we don’t need the Ambrosite Next/Previous Post Plus plugin because the cbox help system has “back” and…[Read more]
Thanks for the theme, Ed!
