    Moved the eLangdell bookstore and the forthcoming eLangdell Course Resources sites to new homes. Same URLs, just more spacious servers.

    Here are those tag icons in action: http://cca.li/lp
    Still needs a bit of tweaking here and there, but overall I like.

    Adding icons to the tags in ECR sites to help provide some visual clues to what is going on.

    This screenshot shows the use of the lessonview shortcode, it just requires the nid of the Lesson.

    This screenshot shows the result of using the lessonview shortcode to get Lesson info from the CALI API.

    Threw in the link to the Lesson page on http://www.cali.org and the completion time. Looking in to styling.

    Back to work on the WordPress plugin for viewing the Lessons API. It works in a nice closed environment. Needs to be tweaked specifically for use on ECR plus (or probably first) needs some styling of the info being returned. I get all of the Lesson node object and all of the authors’ user object, so I have plenty of data to work with.

    Tweaked NS Cloner plugin to copy media library files to the newly cloned site. Also reduced the privileges needed to create a clone so that anyone with the right role could do it. Puts me on the path for that big red “Clone Me!” button that we need.

    Working on cloning for Classcaster and ECR sites. Goal is to allow privileged members the ability to make a complete clone of a site.
    A new plugin, NS Cloner, was released today that promises to make this process easier. It gives the network admin the ability to clone any site. It does an excellent job, but it ignores media files. To copy existing media files from parent to clone is straight forward. The plugin already handles all of the reference to the media files.

    Fixed a bug in the layout of the ECR ToC page so that things are ordered by term id instead of term slug. There is going to be an issue in this if someone wants to re-order the outline. Right now it depends upon a specific id order to control layout. That needs to change at some point. Will likely need a sequence number added to terms.

    Building ECR Topic Sites 

    Here are the steps for creating ECR Topic sites. This should be a pretty detailed outline of what needs to be done.

    • Remove block on topic name
      • most “top level” subject names are reserved by the system.
    • Create Classcaster blog
    • Set theme to eLangdell
    • Configure theme
    • Activate plugins
      • Anthologize
      • Audio Plugin
      • Bulk Slug and Description update
      • Category import
      • Easy stats
      • Hackadelic sliding notes
      • Improved simpler CSS
      • Login redirect
      • My link order
      • WordPress video plugin
    • Convert topic grid into text formatted for category import
    • Paste text into category import, test to make sure it lays out properly and then add categories
    • Add “Press this” tool to browser bookmark bar, rename to match topic
    • Open subject outline page on CALI website
    • Follow link to each Lesson and use “Press this” tool to add Lesson description to blog. Link each Lesson to the category it matches
    • For podcasts, use the short tag to embed a payer linked to the MP3.
    • Break eLangdell casebooks for subject into chapters in Word
    • Publish each chapter to blog from inside of Word linking to appropriate category
    • Use db to locate appropriate cases for inclusion.
