  3. The Ares web pages have duplicate "images" folders

    Under the Ares web site, there is an images folder and a css/images folder. The content of the latter is a subset of the former.

    Note that these images are referenced in main.css so the relative paths will change with any updates.

  4. IPreviousCourseList contains an Item tag that has no reference

    The IPreviousCourseList.html page contains <#ITEM field="ItemID"/>. Normal use case though is not related to a specific item. The Item tag should be removed and replaced with a more relevant page title

  5. DLL incorrectly processes authentication restriction within include tags

    The DLL is returning an empty string if the User Authentication Method is not Ares OR if the Customization Key's Authentication Method isn't Ares. It should be an AND instead.

  6. Ares Web DLL using incorrect controls for the LoanPeriod field (in some cases)

    Repro Steps
    Create a few Sites in Ares using the Customization Manager. Then create some Loan Periods for those sites. For each site:
    Navigate to the IRFBook (Add Reserve Items > Book) form in a default instance of Ares Web
    Select the Site in the Processing Location dropdown
    Submit the form
    Sometimes the form that comes back uses the wrong control for the Loan Period field. It appears that the DLL is deciding to use controls based on the number of Loan Periods per site, disregarding the number of Loan Periods that are not visible to instructors.

  7. Instructors who visit OpenURL link but have no courses cannot submit the form

    Since adding items to a course requires the use of either a specific course id or selecting from available courses (query defined in BuildTableCourseItemRestrictions) we should be able to detect if there will be any courses that will be shown in the table and redirect to the course home/main menu if there are no courses available for adding the item to. We may need another status line to display after redirecting in this scenario.

  8. AresSessionId Cookie is not removed when WebLogoutURL is HTTP URL

    If the WebLogoutURL is an http link and not https, the AresSessionID will persist.

    This has already been corrected in development.

  9. ImportItemText attribute does not work for Ares #TABLE name="Course" tags when Type="Import"

    This causes the Import Items link to disappear from the <#TABLE name="Course" Type="Import"> table when the ImportItemText parameter is set.

  10. Highlighted links in the web pages do not have sufficient contrast.

    The action links on the student view of course reserve items do not have sufficient contrast to indicate when they're selected or hovered over, as specified in https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/G183.html#G183-tests.

  12. Students are not routed to right page when following OpenURL link

    When following an OpenURL link to submit an Ares item, users are correctly sent to the OpenURL form if they're instructors or proxies for an instructor. However, students without any instructor privileges are not routed correctly; instead of being sent to the main menu, perhaps with a status line message, they fall through to CourseInfo.html (right after the log statement 'Unable to find matching form for acShow action.').

  13. Cloning a course in the web may not set item location and proxy fields correctly.

    Cloning a course in the web may not set item location and proxy fields correctly under the following circumstances:
    1. The proxy URL feature is enabled; UseProxy custkey is true and ProxyPrefix has the value of their proxy URL.
    2. There exists items from before UseProxy was set to true where the proxy URL was manually prepended to the item location.

  16. Web DLL Item Search queries have ambiguous access counts

    The ItemSearch queries in the DLL join access counts for 2 different purposes in the DLL. In student mode the icon to indicate if the user has reviewed the item or not is based on usage statistics (and requires AnonymousUsageStatistics to be disabled). The usage count in the search is also enabled when displaying the Items available for cloning if the CloneItemsRequireUsage custkey is greater than 0. The query clauses are slightly different since the student mode functionality requires access for the individual user compared to the cloning functionality which needs a generic access count. Both query clauses join the…

  17. Web DLL allows instuctor to add themself as a full proxy

    Log into Ares Web as an instructor.
    Go to the full proxy page & Enter the instructor's username as the proxy to add.
    Click the Add button

    Confirmed that the client does not allow staff to add a full proxy of the instructor that is currently being viewed. The search results excludes the current instructor username.

  18. Sorting course items in the web with the mouse requires an additional click outside of the field dropdown.

    n the web interface, go to the course home of a course with several items. Using your mouse, select a field in the SortBy dropdown. The list of items will not reload/resort until you click on something outside of the dropdown.

    This is because the sort event on the dropdown was changed from onchange to onblur because navigating through the dropdown options with a keyboard raises the onchange event every time they cursor down or up, causing the page to reload with that option, making this feature unusable from the keyboard.

  19. The IItemDelete page should be removed from new installs

    The IItemDelete page is no longer used by the DLL. The page was intented to verify if the instructor was confirming they wanted to delete the item.
