Location tab - adding maps

Tim Doran 1 hour ago in BLOX Total CMS 0

I have loved the location tab that allows users to quickly add a locator map to a story by plugging in the latitude and longitude. Until recently the base map was, I believe, Open Street Map, which added a  locator icon to the map that allowed readers to quickly zoom to or see the location generally.

The Google Maps base map does not add a locator icon - unless I am missing a setting or something. I have tried it several times. Is there any plans, or the ability for users, to add  an icon? Providing a map that only shows a general location does not make the map very useful. 

Thank you in advance for the consideration.

Answer

Peggy,

You should open a customer support ticket when you have issues, the community forum is not the place to look for support.

support.townnews.com would be where you submit your ticket with all your details, including your domain and the publication you are trying to upload.

I am having trouble with posting an e-edition.

Katelyn Mary 6 days ago in BLOX CMS updated by Joe Hansen (Product manager) 6 days ago 1

I am having trouble with an e-edition. I have sent the files twice and nothing is showing up on the back end. Can anyone help with this? I use to be able to push the job manually but I can't find that option anymore. Help?

Un-escaped ampersands in media URLs in google_newsstand feed

Sam R. 1 week ago in BLOX CMS 0

BLOX seems to have a bug where ampersands in media URLs are not escaped in the altf=google_newsstand version of the feed. The altf=verve_full version has them escaped properly with "&" but not the google_newsstand version. This causes it to fail XML validation and not get parsed by feed readers.

TownNews: I see you have fixed this issue in previous software releases for other feed versions (https://townnews.com/releases/software_releases/flex-templates-software-release---tues-sept-25th-2-00-pm-cdt/article_2abe4da6-bda8-11e8-a444-7f76286bc38c.html and https://townnews.com/releases/software_releases/blox-template-release---oct-7-2014---oct-9-2014/article_c46fb2fc-4d70-11e4-93ab-afa78a5be736.html) but it still needs to be fixed for google_news feeds.

Seeking advice for a workflow solution

joe 1 week ago updated 1 week ago 4

We're looking at making  move to a more streamlined content management and publishing system. I'm not sure if I'm using the correct terminology there. We're happy with Town News. But currently, we spend a lot of time at our organization discussing story ideas, assigning them, editing, etc. We're looking for a tool (Have I missed this as part of Town News' offerings?) where a writer can be assigned a story/or choose from a selection of topics, receive a deadline, submit the story, allow an editor to be assigned and then, ultimately, schedule a post to BLOX. Or some similar process. Is anyone familiar with a tool that will help us manage/automate the publishing workflow?

Chrome login

Husteada 2 months ago in BLOX CMS updated by Rick Simpson 2 weeks ago 1

Using Google Chrome, blox requires I re-authenticate the browser with every login instead of recognizing this is a device/browser I have logged in from before and am going to log in from regularly. Can you please patch this bug?

Anyone else getting spammed on form submissions?

Elizabeth Stephens 3 years ago in BLOX CMS updated by Joe Hansen (Product manager) 2 weeks ago 16

We have been getting tons of spam submissions via a feedback form on our site. It's regarding CBD and vaping stuff. TownNews says it's people submitting so a spam filter or recaptcha wouldn't stop it. But just curious if others are seeing anything similar. Ours just started in the last month.

Answer

Folks, we have a software release going out monday that will remove the file links from Form submission receipts. This will effectively remove the use of forms as a shadow File Storage system. This should hopefully reduce this issue. There will be some additional functionality coming for removing things in the admin, but that is pending further development.

The issue with Captchas or putting forms behind user login is that these are actually real people, so they can answer those captchas.

Feature Request: Form Submission -> Form Views Delete Button

Rick Simpson 3 weeks ago in BLOX CMS 0

It would be nice to have a Delete button on the Form Viewer in order to mark a form submission for 'deletion'

Feature Request: Hard delete for file attachments on form submissions

Rick Simpson 3 weeks ago in BLOX CMS 0

People (and spammers) can upload the oddest things when file attachments are allowed on a form submission.

Since these file attachments can be viewed by anonymous users on the internet it would be nice to have a hard delete method available in the Form Submissions area of bloxCMS.

Feature Request: Add word wrap ability to HTML Block Editor

Jeff Sebestyen 4 weeks ago in BLOX CMS 0

It's not often that I need to edit HTML on Blox, but when I do it would be very useful to have the option to word wrap so I can see my code while making quick edits. At the very least a Maximize button would be cool too. Of course if I am doing more vigorous work I would use a 3rd-Party notepad; however I find myself using this HTML block more and more often. Thanks for your consideration. I have placed a prototype image below.
