This weekend, the second-to-last 2018 release of the Widen Collective will be happening. With that, we have just a few things to let you know about the updates you’ll be seeing. Happy reading!

Assets updates

  • To improve the speed of search results displays, the engagement score has been removed from search results. It also no longer displays on asset thumbnails and in the Sort by dropdown.

  • Due to recent changes to Facebook’s API and data protection practices, sharing assets to Facebook is no longer supported.

Portals update

  • The new video player now allows closed captioning to be included for videos in portals.

API resolved issue

  • The issue with downloads from version 1.0 of the API requiring a login has been resolved.
