We're rolling out a new control panel in phases. Some of you are seeing it now, and the rest of you will see it in about two weeks. Please note: If you manage more than one site, you may see the changes on one site and not the other. Don't worry!

OpenScholar Update: File Manager

March 4, 2016

The OpenScholar development team has finished resolving the majority of the issues in the file manager system (media browser). The two remaining unresolved issues are:

  • Clicking edit on private files sometimes goes into an infinite loading screen
  • Firefox issue only - editing a file and clicking “save” does not always work

We're working on fixing those two, but in the meantime, please let us know if you see any additional problems.
