    Wall widget

    I do prefer the Wall widget if i'm honest as you don't need that extra click to view the comments and it looks cleaner. Plus you don't need to add a Title. I like the noticeboard more than the forum but again not quite as much as the Wall. If there's no way users with contribute can have access to Edit and Delete comments then I might just have to switch over to a noticeboard. Parents and students only have View access so giving all features of the wall to contribute users wouldn't be a problem for us, but I can see how it might affect other schools.

    Wall widget

    The wall is individual for each student on their E-Portfolio site, staff leave student comments on the wall, so I don't think embedding will work in this scenario

    Wall widget

    Does anyone know how I can give our staff members access to the reply and delete buttons to posts on the wall widget without giving them Edit & Manage rights to the whole site? Staff have also asked if there can be an Edit button so they don't need to delete and start again if they make a mistake. Many thanks in advance Pete
  4. Hi @Graham Quince It doesn't seem to record parent and student visits on e-portfolio sites on our platform, just Admin and Staff visits. I've tested on a regular site and it logs the parent visit, so seems to be specific to e-portfolios.
  5. Ah makes sense. Didn't think about it from that perspective. Just trying to think of ways to make the process of getting login details to parents less painful for myself 😂 Many thanks for your reply.
  6. I do use the c&p at the minute which makes things quicker, still takes a few more extra clicks but it does the job. I think staff would benefit more from a back button when designing their own sites with complex drop-down menus and subpages. I suppose it would be similar to a 'link to page' widget which i'm sure I've seen mentioned in the past, but with extra styling options.
  7. Hi Graham I did give this a go but it doesn't really have the desired effect. The back button in presentation mode will go back to the previous subpage, but i'd like to return to the next main page in the tree if this makes sense? Pete
  8. A simple 'return' or 'back' button widget that can be dragged onto a sub-page and when clicked, goes back to the next page up in the menu tree. Would make site navigation easier particularly if you have sites when many layers of sub-pages. I currently do this with the text widget and hyperlink the text to go back to the page I want, but it can be very time consuming and a nice subtle button would look better.
  9. Hi all Does anyone else think it would be more beneficial if the message when a parent requests a password reset via the 'forgotten password' button could include a little more information? For example, if they enter their username, could it state the matching email address on the system so that if it's not their current email, they know to contact the school to get their email updated, rather than assuming the password reset link doesn't work? And if they enter their email address, it can tell them if their email address was found rather than saying "if it was found"? Thanks, Pete
  10. Hi Graham May have come across a bug in the code. When clicking to see the eportfolio of XX XX, the eportfolio of XX XX1 is loaded instead. Usernames are XXXX and XXXX1 Pete
  11. When I try to install the latest version I get a failed to install error message.When I try to install the latest version I get a failed to install error message (attached).
  12. Does anyone know if there is a way of disabling the message feature in assignments so that students and parents can't post comments? It's not obvious when a comment has been made therefore many messages are left unanswered as teachers don't see them. We'd prefer to have parents email if they have an issue regarding homework. Many thanks Pete
  13. Below thread covers the same issue:
  14. We've been unable to set any assignments for around a week now
  15. Hi all, Just wondering if any other school is having difficulty sending out assignments to classes? We're currently unable to set any as it either gets stuck loading or the error message 'assignment failed' appears. Frog developers are looking into things but they haven't said if it's affecting others or it's a specific issue with our platform. Many thanks
