    CMS News Template
    Add a new template in the CMS that is pre-formatted for a news pages. Similar to how the UC San Diego News Center is set up. Important that there is the ability to have the “share” features and icons like they have for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Email, and Print.

    • Roll out Blink FAQs

      Blink has an FAQ template that is similar to the drawers, but a little more compact.

      • Delete/Unpublish multiple old images or files simultaneously

        We have so many events and over time the files and images add up and become time consuming to delete individually.

        • Picture Captions

          I'd like an easy way to enter in picture captions and the option to put the caption above, below, or to either side of the picture, and format the caption.

          • Be able to run a report on a created site/page, that lists URL of links on the site/page

            It would make managing a site easier if we could run a report that would list where all the URL links are pointing to. Especially in the case of decommissioning a server, and having to move alt the documents on a site to a new server.

              • include images in drawer headings

                Have drawers be able to show a profile image along with the title of the drawer, and/or an option to 'see more' and have just long blocks of text hidden.

                • Double duty drawer templates

                  It would be great to have the double duty template for drawer pages (currently it's only for two and three column pages). We use drawer pages often and it would be great to be able to duplicate these pages across multiple website pages.

                  • Enhance drawer functionality

                    1. make drawer contents deep-linkable from other pages, so that the link action opens the drawer automatically
                    2. get rid of the Expand All element when there is only one drawer; make this optional on all groups of drawers
                    3. make drawers linkable from menus and other navigation elements
                    4. make drawer contents reusable

                    • Social Media buttons

                      It would be useful to have the quick share buttons and analytics for social media integrated in the CMS. ShareThis has a nice suite of tools: http://www.sharethis.com/get-sharing-tools.

                      • Widgets

                        Like the widgets on a Mac- quickly add a facebook or blog feed, the surf report, a calculator, airfare info, news headlines, clock, etc.
