  1. Morning! We've put the widget on our Y6 transition site but it doesn't seem to be logging user visits in the 'Other' profile. Admin, staff and students all working fine.
  2. Brilliant thanks Graham. I've managed to get it setup now but thank you anyway. I've setup three tabs, one with the request form, one for the staff members to see their requests only (page hidden for maintenance staff), and a maintenance log of all staff requests (page visible for maintenance staff only). Pete
  3. Thanks Graham, where can I find the IT Support Portal? Can't see it in the Frog Templates or Frog Store
  4. Is there any way to have an option to change the default sort order of the files from alphabetical to date created, newest at the top?
  5. Afternoon, I want to create a 'Maintenance Request' page within Frog. Staff will login to create their maintenance request and the maintenance team will simply tick a box when the job is complete. The maintenance team have zero computer skills so it needs to be as simplistic as possible. I envisage a page on our staff dashboard containing 2 columns and a large box above spanning the whole width of the page, where staff will report their issue. The first column would be a list of all maintenance requests with the oldest at the bottom. The second column would be the completed requests column. Ideally the maintenance man would simply click on an active request, which then takes it from the first column to the second. Any advice on how to approach this, or an alternative solution that is just as easy to operate would be greatly appreciated

    Can I ask what system you guys are running for your room bookings? Do you use the Frog booking calendar and create event widget like us, or a third-party system? Here's our staff and student dashboards. We've gone for a planner style dashboard for the students.

    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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
