LINKS - VERSION 2.2

October 20, 2020 - NEW VERSION 2.2 of the Links Server

We announce a new version of the Link Server, that incorporates a new search engine and a link checker.

Changes and Improvements

  • New Finder on the user's "Manage" home page. The search engine allows you to search by link name, description, destination and url within the links that can be modified by the user.
  • Link checker that checks if your links are still responding or not. To activate it, go to a list of links and click on the "check" button in the header of the "Comment" field.
  • Fixed an issue where Links would sometimes get the wrong page title (when using it to autofill the comment field).
  • Added a "statistics" button to the action list in link listings. It's redundant with clicking on a link, but more visible.
  • Review of the generation of user groups for permissions. You can no longer add links to the institutional groups gpas, gpdi, etc... but you can to the groups of places (glug...).
  • Change in aesthetics and presentation, new icons and buttons.
  • Shows the type of link in the link tab.
  • Solved several small bugs.
