Presentation mode for YouTube assets

Jennifer Price 3 years ago in BLOX Total CMS • updated by Mike Stickler 3 years ago 5
We see that you can set an image asset to display in presentation mode: "showcase" and have it display prominently when it is a child asset of an article. Is there a way to do this with a child YouTube asset? If not (at this time), are there any plans to add presentation modes for YouTube or video assets?
Thanks!
Answer
We have a "workaround" way to do this - a custom property.

On the YouTube asset, go to "other" and then enter:

name = position

value = showcase



Available position values:

showcase = Large and on top of the article
top = Top of the media box
bottom = Bottom of the story

log_email for individual jobs

Craig V 3 years ago in BLOX Total CMS • updated 3 years ago 4
Can I use log_email on individual jobs and not all jobs? If so, do I just add it to the job under destination tab?

User can register for an account with Facebook

Users should be able to register for an account by linking their Facebook account. "Log in with Facebook" like other websites do.

Hi Deirdre!

I'm happy to tell you that we do have this! It is enabled via Settings -> Users -> Authentication -> Federated Authentication.

Macros in TCMS using Chrome (or Firefox)

When creating stories and adding photos (that is, working with "Article" and "Image") there are an enormous number of repetitive clicks. For example, in an "Image" asset you click a button to add an image which shows a popup to click to get to the "Browse" dialog, which pops up across the screen from the first button ...)

Being able to use some basic macros, as in Excel, to get from A to B would save a great deal of time and go easier on everyone's wrists and arms.

Is anyone using a macro program on Macintosh successfully? I've tried OSX Automator but it is not giving me results.
