Testing, testing, one, two, three

This is an article created in order to test services.

Currently, this article is being used to test media embedding.

The image below is embedded from the site media library.

The video below was taken from an existing file in the Media Library and embedded.

The video below comes from YouTube.

Lets try a Vimeo file.

Lets try the embedding of the iFrame code from YouTube.

Here is a YouTube that was already a part of the site Media Library.

To get this to work required that the WYSIWYG module be updated to 2.2-dev. CKEditor was also updated at the same time to its current version.

This article has been used to test following an article and sending emailed notifications when new comments are created. I am editing this article on 8/21/2015 in order to test whether those following updates receive and email.

The message type has been updated and so I update this article in order to see what has transpired. And again. And again.

Join the conversation.

I am posting as comments to this forum issues that need to be tackled, and we can delete them as they get accomplished.


1.  We can not see who is following updates/comments for content types OLCC-Course and OLCC-Article.

2. The PDF upload feature of OLCC-Article has files at the top of the page, which should be downloadable by anonymous user. One has been uploaded to module 2, http://olcc.ccce.divched.org/2015OLCCModule2P1 .

3.  How do you limit image size in the upload media WYSWYG button, while allowing other objects like videos to be bigger.

Hi Jon,

This is my test of my memory.  But I think the link the [1] follows is not a link.  And if you go to the bottom of the page, and click the link there, it goes to the paper, not the comment.

I can probably fix this by looking at the token in ConfChem and moving it here - but I figure I should not touch anything until you figure why emails are not being triggered right.

1.  The default editor for comments is Full HTML, but in ConfChem it is Filtered HTML.  The former places html tags in the emails.

2.  Leah has created some glossary definitions. This may not be so much a Jon question, but can we associated different lexicon vocabularies with different editors?  Right now we have the lexicon based on Drupalese and OLCC terminology, not cheminformatics.

Jon,  I have two questions on images.First, how do you resize them when they are a "TLO File", not an embedded image.Second, please look at the word document at the bottom here (uploaded file,  http://olcc.ccce.divched.org/2015OLCCForumModule12015OLCCModule1P4.docxHe used chemdraw and they are *.emz files.  I have not used chemdraw for a decade, any my version is 15 years old (I think I still have the disk).  I know I used to export them to jpeg when I was embeddeding them in webpages, but without using chemdraw, is there something we can do so I can embed them, and edit/resize them?  Othewise I can use screen capture, which may be easier anyways, as that would "capture" the way they are layed out on the word document.Cheers,

The embed node sort by first created first, not last created.  (when I filter by TLO - I then have to go to the bottom, it would be nice if the filter reversed the order.

I am using the html.


Also, we may have removed the link to the actual comment (I am commenting on "Sort of embed node").  I figure I can figure the token out, but class starts in 6 minutes, and I wanted to see if this was working

test of this



admin | Thu, 08/13/2015 - 13:34

The text format of this message is Full HTML. I have sent the Default Mail System to Mime. Does this send pretty messages?

This is a test.  If you get this email, please forward it to me.  Thanks,

I am sending this message to test sending rich email messages. Here is some richness.

admin | Wed, 08/19/2015 - 14:55

Rich Email

This message is being sent in order to test the sending of rich email and not just plain text email.

The text format used to create this comment was Full HTML.

How rich is the email that is sent?

admin | Fri, 08/21/2015 - 11:22

I have updated the rules for sending email notifications (I do not know how or when they were changed so that the flag did not trigger). The following updates now works again. I am createing this comment to see if following comments also works now. 

This is some Rich Email

This message is being sent in order to test the sending of rich email and not just plain text email.

The text format used to create this comment was Full HTML.

How rich is the email that is sent?

So, the email is now sent but it is messy. Changed MailSystem in an attempt to remove the meesiness.

admin | Fri, 08/21/2015 - 11:36

Setting MailSystem to SMTP results in HTML in the email. I now am testing the email with the MailSystem set to the default.

admin | Fri, 08/21/2015 - 11:46

I have reconfigured some settings and have reverted back to the MailSystem that sent the messy email.

admin | Fri, 08/21/2015 - 14:55

Turning attention to the configuration of the text formats used to filter the email. I have switched to the Filtered HTML format and altered the possible tags and order of the filters. So how do I look now?

admin | Fri, 08/21/2015 - 16:31

OK. We are getting close.

The last email that I received contained the styling of the site in the email (font, font size, etc.).

We still have a problem with line breaks and <p> tags appearing in the text of the email.

I am testing  the full html editor


admin | Mon, 08/24/2015 - 08:40

I have edited the message type to try to remove unecessary formatting that may be confusing the filters and resulting in HTML being included in the message.

admin | Mon, 08/24/2015 - 09:52

<p>Once more.</p>

'till I reach the higher ground...

admin | Tue, 08/25/2015 - 09:19

ConfChem sent plain text email. Let's convert OLCC to also send email via plain text. Here we go!

admin | Tue, 08/25/2015 - 09:29

Filtered HTML has been set so that line breaks are NOT converted to HTML.

admin | Tue, 08/25/2015 - 09:35

The line spacing is cleaned up now for better readability. I think we are now ready to go.

admin | Tue, 08/25/2015 - 09:44

Using Filtered HTML to create this comment. Using Full HMTL converts line breaks to HTML and thus the HTML appears in the now plain text email.

admin | Tue, 08/25/2015 - 23:50

Turned off HTML email in SMTP module. Also reset the link to the comment.

admin | Wed, 08/26/2015 - 08:35

A comment that is still testing the email sending.

admin | Wed, 08/26/2015 - 09:00

In this test, we have set the message partials to Filtered HTML.

Here is the start of a new paragraph.

And here is some italic in another paragraph.

admin | Wed, 08/26/2015 - 09:11

Without SMTP enabled.A new paragraph.

admin | Wed, 08/26/2015 - 10:40

I have disabled all the mail modules.

We are going to go back to basics in order to better understand and trouble shoot the issue of HTML markup in email messages.

admin | Wed, 08/26/2015 - 10:49

I am now setting the all message partials to use the Email text format.

I have disabled all filters in Email text format.

I am writing this comment using the Full HTML text format.


admin | Wed, 08/26/2015 - 10:53
For this comment I am using the Email text format. The idea would be to allow only the Email text format for students to use. Do the paragraphs break properly?

Robert Belford | Wed, 08/26/2015 - 10:56
This is looking better, but the initial problem was full html was what opened, and filtered was working, and somehow, we need to get email to be what opens. Thanks ever so much for all your work on this.

Jon Holmes | Wed, 08/26/2015 - 11:00
I am creating this comment logged in as a user who only has the student role. The Text format defaults to Email. As long as the student does not change this, the emails should be sent using this format. The emails look OK.
