Hi All,

I notice that the Scholar-3.5.0 distribution is organized quite a bit differently than Scholar-3.4.1.

Are the implications of this change discussed someplace?

I only found one mention of it, on the Harvard site:

Here, at the end of the change list, under Dev & Infrastructure, they mention:
"Note: this release introduces the make file. Upgrading from 7.x-3.4 to 7.x-3.5 requires extra system operations."

What are these extra system operations specifically?

OpenScholar 2.0RC1 Twitter Feed not updating

Hello all,
One of my users just noticed that their Twitter feed hasn't updated for a little over a week now, right around the same time I upgraded OS to version 2.0RC1. Could it be related to the upgrade or perhaps because Twitter has changed the way their API works and the Twitter Pull module hasn't been upgraded yet? Anyone else run into this issue?

Thank you,

LDAP module on OpenScholar 2.0 RC1

Is there any documentation specifically for OpenScholar 2.0 RC for LDAP integration? I have the modules for LDAP enabled through the Site Configuration > Modules all the LDAP say enabled... but that is about as far as I can get with it.

Problem about database configuration in installation of OpenScholar

It comes with me when I am setting database configuration in installation of OpenScholar.

Warning: in DatabaseConnection->__construct() (line 304 of C:\BitNami\wampstack-5.3.23-0\apps\drupal\htdocs\includes\database\ Warning: htmlspecialchars(): Invalid multibyte sequence in argument in check_plain() (line 1572 of C:\BitNami\wampstack-5.3.23-0\apps\drupal\htdocs\includes\

And, I cannot log in the server by using "root" and the password I set previously.

How can I solve it?

Should we use OpenScholar?

Hello. We're an academic department with about 25 permanent professor/researcher members, and 80 members in all, including visitors, postdocs, students and technicians. We currently have a custom-built website:

but the person who's built it has left, and we'd like to re-implement most or all of its features using a public and open system. OpenScholar looks really good, but before jumping in we have a few questions.

OpenScholar Site

If anyone's interested, I've started up a website dedicated to OpenScholar at

There's not much content there yet, but there is a forum and wiki all set up and ready to go.

As a new OpenScholar developer, I feel lost in the wild (especially since the official OS documentation is very thin). I'm looking forward to getting help (and helping others) regarding OpenScholar configuration, administration, development, etc.

Blog comment management

I'm trying to figure out how to manage comments in the blog module. Of course, there's a huge amount of spam comments (you don't have to be logged in to comment) and the approval queue system doesn't seem to work: When I click on the "delete" link under a comment I only receive a "Access denied. You are not authorized to access this page." message. And if I go to cp/content/comments/approval the "Choose an operation" dropdown menu doesn't have any entries. This is all despite the user in question having privileges to "administer comments". Any ideas what's wrong?

Redirecting OS site after Faculty leave

We have a faculty member that is leaving our University and would like to redirect their current OS site to their new site. How do folks handle redirects when a scholar leaves?
