On September 17, 2023, Stacks 4.0 Build 103 was rolled out to all Stacks websites. This release was dedicated to implementing fixes based on user feedback, with the goal of enhancing the overall Stacks experience.
- Collections RIS Exporting
We've added a new feature that allows Administrators to export collection items into an .RIS file from the Collection list items dashboard page.
- Sort collection items by rating
We've incorporated rating information into the dashboard, enabling Admin users to view the number of likes and dislikes for each collection item. Additionally, we are working on implementing the functionality to sort this admin view by rating.
Improved sorting options for Directory Listings
In the past, Directory items used a combination of the First Name, Last/Secondary Name fields to create a title for each listing. This constraint resulted in listings being sorted alphabetically by the first name by default. We have enhanced directory listings to give users the option to sort by First Name, Last/Secondary Name, or Company, providing greater flexibility in organizing and sorting listings.
- Event series registration dates displayed incorrectly
When choosing dates for a series registration, only the first selected date was being displayed accurately, despite the registered dates being correct. This could have potentially caused confusion for some users who might have thought they had registered for the incorrect dates. We've resolved this issue, and now the dates are correctly displayed and applied.
- Staff login functionality when using SSO authentication
We have addressed the issue where websites employing SSO authentication were unable to utilize the Stacks internal authentication system to access their staff accounts. This problem has been resolved, and users can now log in using their staff accounts to access their dashboard and manage their websites.
- Deleted content appearing in website search results
On occasion, links to deleted content pages in Stacks would appear in website search results. We have made adjustments to ensure that deleted content is no longer included in search results.
- Events publishing status
We identified an issue where the publishing status option for events was not being adhered to, potentially resulting in unpublished events being visible to users. We have rectified this publishing behavior and revised the workflow to align with the standard publishing status dropdown options.
- Database listing discoverability
Previously, when users searched for databases using the Stacks website search and clicked on a result, it would lead them to the database listing page with the associated category expanded. We have enhanced Stacks to ensure that the desired database listing is now accurately anchored, making it easier for users to find the specific database listing they are looking for.
