You know you published your webform. You know people are interested in using it. You wait, and wait, and wait some more, and wonder when the submissions will start arriving. At a certain point, it occurs to you to check your Junk folder and—lo and behold!—you have oodles of submissions waiting for you. How can you avoid this annoying frustration and have your webform submissions show up where you expect to see them?
You've worked diligently on your webform and it looks great, but when testing it you discover that the select menus and textareas are suddenly breaking out the side. Why did this happen? How can you fix it?
By default images added in your body content's WYSIWYG are set to keep images and bullet lists separate since, historically, these two elements don't play nice together. We recommend only one particular workaround for the right-floated images as the left-floated images usually wind up overlapping the bullets and/or text. Even though this conflict exists, we have a workaround to help you achieve your goal.
This issue crops up when an image is added in the Site Information WYSIWYG; the image displays for a week or two and then mysteriously breaks for no discernible reason. Let's explore what's happening behind the scenes and how to implement a fix.
Earlier this year, Alex Brandt of Palantir.net wrote a fantastic article outlining how you, as a content provider, can make your content more accessible to our entire community, whether it's here on campus or farther afield. Alex outlines practical tips, steps, and helpful links to resources to help you build your communication bridges to the benefit of all.
You've set up your webform, it's live, people are beginning to submit responses, you go to check the results and instead of one entry per person you see three. Or five. Or eight. What is going on here?
You thought you set up your site for CAS for the campus community, but your visitors are seeing "There was a problem logging, please contact the site administrator" even though they did log in and can see the content. What's going on here?
While we wait for the Drupal community's Media Library Initiative to become available and stable for our use—new functionality that will let everyone upload and reuse files and other media more easily—we have a few steps for you if you want to link to the files you upload, whether it's a PDF, Office document, or other eligible file types.
Where and how you start your journey matters
Where and how you start your journey in Site Factory as you create new sites or duplicating existing ones will have a major impact on whether or not you can see your site in your group list when the process is completed.
"All I did was edit my page—I didn't touch the original image"
While we've always advocated for properly optimizing images for the web, it's only since we instated a consistent limit of 3MB file sizes for every attachment region in SiteFarm that the impact of that change in our 5.0.0 release has brought to light how that truly affects our users and their sites. Maybe this has impacted you or maybe you haven't come across it yet, but let's take a look at how you can review your site's files to identify and replace culprits before they become a real problem.

The campus is increasing its security profile by implementing the CAS Service Registry to list any site that needs CAS to log in using the CAS Service Registry. This will add a site to an approved, official white-list, require a site to use https://, and improve overall security performance by only including sites that truly need it. That's great news. Let's go over what this means to you as a SiteFarm user.
You've been working away on your site, specifically a ton of Basic pages, and when you try to add a primary image to one, you suddenly realize it's not showing up. In fact, it's not just the image, it the page title, too. What happened?
No one wants to think website visitors are spending time on error pages, but it happens. The 404 error page is one place that these interactions happen rather frequently. Design it in a way that speaks to users rather than encouraging them to leave your site.
