Can you provide an example and/or reference to give more color to this? We run accessibility WCAG 2.1 audits regularly and this hasn't been an issue in the past, but we want to be as accessible as possible. Adding new fields to the output may be an issue, but if you're just wanting to use the caption field instead of title, that would be a simple macro change for your site.

Elizabeth,

Can you talk more about what you're wanting? There is an existing alt text property that put in the image title. Are you wanting to be able to change that without changing the image title?

Example from your site today, main image has alt="Why run for School Board? Past board members, superintendents weigh in."

The macro that outputs the image using the image title

alt="[% oImage.title | truncate(256,'...') | html; %]"

Thanks,

Eric,

This would be a fairly easy feature to add to a block if you wanted a custom version of one. Or it could be done globally via javascript for the full page.

If you wanted to pursue that for your site, just reach out to our CS team.

Erik, you just need to submit a ticket to customer service and indicate what you'd like to do.

The way that block for them works is that it's a block like any other, where you simply have assets displayed with the preview image. So it's just using the regular article and does require there be an image. 

If all of that work, just submit that ticket with the detail that you want to duplicate what was done for them and you should be good to go.

Are you thinking of a page like this:

Jenna,

Yes! We have a built in NITF feed for newsbank and work with them for a lot of our customers. Just submit a Customer Service ticket and we can get that set up for you.

Jim,

There is a user permission that controls who can create keywords. You can look at the group that reporters are in under the Users admin -> Settings panel. Open the group. If you look at permissions, you can add a new one under Editorial -> Assets -> Create Keyword Tags. They need to have that access in order to create new ones.


Otherwise they can only use pre-defined keywords (which can help control keyword spam and typos). The keywords list is maintained in Site Settings in the main blox menu. Then look for keywords. Reach out to our CS team if you need further help with this.


Thanks,

David,

You can use bootstrap 3 visibility classes (https://getbootstrap.com/docs/3.3/css/#helper-classes). You can place these classes in the "CSS Classes" field at the bottom of the "appearance" tab in the Design/Blocks application.

If you have anyone on staff that is template certified, you can certainly build your own Datatables functionality into some custom blocks, which would then output a standard blox table asset into a more "optimized" presentation.

That would also allow you to not iframe in the content.

you can do even more with table assets if you get a bit creative. Here are some examples I've put together over time that use some other visualizations (chart.js) and some basic bootstrap styling.
