Updates deployed to the Connect production servers as a result of the code sprint that ended 10 June 2014.

User Facing: Desktop

  • Added code that would limit posts that display in the list of "Recent Blog Posts" to those that are in an published (not draft) state.
  • Added code that will keep users from running into access denied errors when they submit feedback to the system.
  • Fixed an issue with email notifications not always firing when a solution is marked.
  • Fixed the sort order of RSS feeds to display the most current posts at the beginning of the feed.

Performance Wins

  • Optimized code by removing legacy "Views" that were generating the various article list pages.
  • Wrote code that identified and removed ~5,000 invalid records in the Accreditations and Certifications database tables.

SEO Wins

  • Added "noindex, follow" meta information to utility landing pages (that don't add value to search indexes).
  • Fixed an issue with missing analytics tracking codes on blog collector pages.
