  1. Selecting from the Dropdown

    When you select from the search/suggestions box ("You May Also Like" section, for instance), it jumps around and makes it hard to select with precision.

    For example, as admin when I try to create a discount code and I need to add multiple items with the keyword "mountain", it is next to impossible to scroll and pick a tile that is in-between transitions.

    Another example is "Recommended Reading" on many of our content types.

  2. Customized Email thanks for Books inventory versus Courses/Activities/Lodges SDtbd

    It'd be great if you only bought a book through the website that the email receipt references the most relevant email.

  3. Need to add links to Branch websites under the "Branches and Committees" page of the main Mountaineers.org website

    Some of the branches, like the Olympia branch, have stand alone websites that provide much more information on their officers, committees, and activities than the main mountaineers.org website. It would be beneficial to all to clearly link the individual branch webpages to their respective branch pages under the "Branches and Committees" page of the Mountaineers.org site.
    I wasted a ton of time trying to find detailed info about the Olympia Branch on the Mountaineers.org site only to give up. I was finally told about the olympiamountaineers.org site and voila, there was all of the info I needed. A direct link…

    We added branch home page and committee page features in July 2015. Since then our branches and committees have been moving content form their own websites to mountaineers.org. Most branches and committees have completed this. Our Olympia Branch is in the midst of this content migration and will be done soon.

  4. Fix time entry so that entering 12:00 AM (midnight) works GH2602

    Currently when we enter 12:00 AM in a datetime field, it is converted to 12:00 PM when saved. Note that entering 00:00 AM works, so this is the workaround.

  5. Improve Collection Portlet for Main Content Area Below the Title GH2263

    Improve the display of a collection portlet that can be display in the main content area of a page just below the title, image and summary. The portlet would continue to be configuration as it is but the display would span the entire page if there is only one (50/50 if there are two and 33/33/33 if there are three. Currently it spans only 33% of the width in all cases.

    This would allow our outdoor centers and other committees to elevate their blog content if they wish See attached a example.

  7. Change Shopping Cart Timer Message Text GH2932

    Change the shopping cart timer message text to:

    You have {time_remaining} minutes to complete your registration and payment or your registration will be canceled to give others a chance to register.”

    Where time_remaining is 30, 29, 28, etc. minutes (it starts at 30 minutes, a website setting that can be increased or decreased if needed).

    It seems like it might be better to show how many minutes remain to give a better sense of urgency.

  9. Upgrade to latest 4.3.x version of Plone GH2850

    To make sure we have the latest bugfixes, can more easily contribute any fixes of our own back to Plone, and are in the best position to upgrade to Plone 5.

  10. Upgrade to Plone 5

    Our website is built on Plone 4.3 which runs on Python 2. Support for Python 2 ends in 2020. Plans to have Plone 5.2 on Python 3 are in the works. To be sure we are able to maintain support and install needed security patches, we should begin the process of upgrading to Plone 5 in late FY2019 and complete the transition in early FY2020. We will get many small side benefits from the upgrane to Plone 5 like being able to have links in help text and importing events.

  11. Migrate Files to "The Cloud" ~IT

    We have internal systems we can move to a cloud platform: office apps & files (apps, documents, spreadsheets, presentations), and graphic design apps & files (e.g. Adobe Creative Suite). Note that we already have photo storage in SmugMug and on website and video storage in Vimeo and YouTube.

  12. Create more robust Offered expiration date/time
