  • Inserting Icons into OU Campus

    Our web authors love icons and for the longest time they inserted them as icons that they found from google searches. Our designer would design custom icons for sites and they would be converted to svgs and placed in the page. Both of these solutions worked but were clunky. Luckily, icon fonts and icon sets have been popping up which provide end users an array of icons to use on their pages.

  • The Unpublished Gadget

    At the 2016 OmniUpdate Hackathon I joined a group of six people who built a gadget that unpublishes files from the web server. The idea started out as a simple sidebar gadget that when clicked would go to the production server and remove the file while keeping it on the staging server. After about two hours of coding the gadget was “completed”. At that point, if you unpublished a file and navigated a different page, the button was still disabled. This was a known bug and I reported it the next day. Yesterday I had sometime to fix this error and I believe the gadget is ready to be used.
