Relating content with the shelf

by Thomas Moreau

Here is what we’ve been working on for you.


Relate content

You can link content to an initial content and guide the user to related resources.

Relating content is done two different ways.

  • From the Edit window of a content (its metadata window), in a dedicated field. You can enter a few characters in a search box and the search engine will dynamically suggest you up to 5 resources available containing those characters in their title. You can also enter the ID of the source to relate. This ID can be found in the URL of the source.
  • Using the shelf. First add to the shelf the different sources you want to relate to a content. Then, from the Edit window of the dedicated resource, click on the shelf to get the option to relate its contents to the resource.

Be aware that content will be linked reciprocally but not multidirectionally. Imagine a source A. You decide to relate A to B and C using the shelf. B will then be also related to A, and C will be related to A either. But B and C won’t be associated.

Adding shelf contents to a collection

While you are editing a collection, you can also use the shelf to add contained sources as references, in your collection. Click on the shelf icon to see the option.

Activate a tag, right from the search box

If you need to search for a specific tag but do not want to go first through the search interface, or if you don’t know in which tag category it is stored, you can now start a tag search using the hashtag #, followed by the tag you wish to search. Knowledge Plaza will show corresponding tags. Select the desired tag, and you will instantly get access to all contents tagged with it.

Ask a question and vote for the best answer

We’ve setup a new kind of content, called Question. This replaces the old Discussion feature. Both features are almost identical, except that comments within a question can be sorted by publication date or by number of votes (likes) allowing you to ask for questions and ideas, then let the community vote for the best answer.

There’s a few more:

  • Drafts, Shelf and Review lists now show the number of sources they contain, and if empty, do not show up. This is to encourage you to clean your review list and draft list more regularly.
  • You can now get back your login details using your email address.
  • Sorting results on ‘Most followed‘ is available in the search.
  • This was missing: you can now like a status update.
  • If you’re using outgoing RSS feeds from KP, you can reset the token of your RSS feeds, the token being the part of the URL containing user authentification. CHeck your preferences.
  • The Interactions filter disappear.

For the Admins, you can now:

  • Resend pending invitations to users, individually or in bulk,
  • Edit shared alerts (title, description, frequency and delivery hour)
