Styling a post that has been forked to a new discussion
ST If you are one of those hyper-productive people using ActiveWords There's a step where you have to Edit the Forked Post . It took only a couple of minutes to automate that with an ActiveWord. If you're already using ActiveWords, here is the script for an ActiveWord called "fade box" <div class="fade-box"> {control down}{v}{control up}{control down}{enter}{control up} <p class="read-more"><a class="button" href="#">Read More. Don't reply to this post.</a></p>... [ more ]

How to Encourage Community Members to Post

neil Thanks Rosemary for the tips. I especially like the Survey idea. Once upon a time, we used them to actually "survey" members about issues/ideas, but now I see that it's also a good idea to provide a point of easy-engagement. Update: We just posted a single survey question and got over a hundred engagements in the first two days One thing we've tried to do is assign "monitoring and response" duties to various members of our admin/moderator group so that every post gets responded to. These... [ more ]

Crowdstack: Accessibility In Reach
neil Thanks for making these changes. Please also look at your font colors on Crowdstack's pages as an "accessibility issue." Links in "light" blue are harder to read for some of us. It may be a screen or eyesight issue or BOTH but it's something I always notice when I'm on sites (like Crowdstack) which use pale palettes. (May I suggest you switch the two "blues" you use in links on Crowdstack. Use the lighter one for the hover color, and the slightly darker blue for the link's static state). I... [ more ]

SSO login
Brian Lenz Hi @Harvey Mercado , You can set up your SSO configuration so that users of your system will be automatically registered in Crowdstack without any further registration steps. To do that, you need to make sure that your SAML Assertion provides all of the profile fields for Crowdstack, which includes, at a minimum, Email Address and Display Name. Once you have everything set up, then anyone who visits Crowdstack will need to sign in or register on your external system in order to get signed in... [ more ]
Harvey Mercado Thanks for your reply, appreciate your prompt response. I will check out OpenSAML for the implementation. Actually, the goal is for the users in our website to access pages in crowdstack without having to do any additional registration with crowdstack. Do we need a crowdstack account for this? After we set up SAML identity provider in our website as well as, configure SSO and upload the metadata in crowdstack. How do we log in (or register, for new users) to crowdstack from our website? Do... [ more ]
Brian Lenz Hi @Harvey Mercado , The API is not meant to be used for Single Sign-On; rather it's more of a tool for pushing and pulling data to/from Crowdstack programmatically. Crowdstack uses SAML 2.0 for SSO, so in order to hook up your Crowdstack via SSO, you will need to implement a SAML Identity Provider on your registration and login system. In SSO mode, Crowdstack will act as a SAML Service Provider. SAML 2.0 is an open standard with tons of information widely available. You can learn more about... [ more ]

Forum topics listing pages don't pick up formatting used on replies
El Loro Thanks Rosemary [ more ]
Rosemary O'Neill Yes, you're right that the replies don't display formatting on the main page. I'll take this as a suggestion for the future! Meantime, for spoilers, I'd just artificially bump the spoiler text with asterisks or line returns so it doesn't appear on the main page. [ more ]
El Loro The Christmas specials I mentioned, there are two Celebrity specials and two Professional specials. Each of the four episodes have four contestants. One of the Celebrity specials has broadcaster and journalist Janet Street-Porter, actor Christopher Biggins, broadcaster Dev Griffin and TV personality Vicky Pattison. The other has Strictly Come Dancing judge, choreographer and director, Craig Revel Horwood, entrepreneur and TV presenter Amar Latif, actress Crissy Rock and entrepreneur,... [ more ]
