Adding DOCTYPE to Luminis generated pages

Submitted by mwinstone on Thu, 11/01/2007 - 10:28

We've been trying to get our Luminis pages to validate properly and we have the HTML structure almost there, but one key element is missing; a DOCTYPE!

I've tried adding a DOCTYPE to the templates found in nested-tables but whenever I do I get the ol' renderstate error once the changes are applied.

Has anyone successfully gotten DOCTYPE information loaded in Luminis?

EAS to Campus LDAP, with Luminis LDAP fallthrough

Submitted by bsimpson on Wed, 10/31/2007 - 15:56

=External Authentication System=

This is yet another TLA (Three Letter Acronym) for a component of the Luminis portal. You can use another LDAP server to let Luminis authenticate against. It will direct all requests to this server for verification of credentials instead of its own. Better yet, you can setup MULTIPLE EAS configurations, to allow for redundancy and fall through. This keeps Luminis specific users (cpadmin) inside of Luminis' LDAP and out of the campus LDAP.

Demo accounts and e-mail issues

Submitted by villiam on Wed, 10/31/2007 - 11:35

Like many other schools we have a demo account for our Luminis implementation. Not wishing to have people use the account to send out spam I arranged with our mail administrator to not have a mailbox created for this userid (we use external mail and authentication). This effectively prevents the user from using the e-mail channel or e-mail icon after logging into JUMP.

Creating an ADA compliant login page

Submitted by baumli on Tue, 10/30/2007 - 10:32

We were assured that the portal was ADA compliant with most screen readers, however the screen reader that we use won't read the login page. The loginf.jsp contains frames that the screen reader won't read. I haven't tried adding the login.jsp code into the loginf.jsp yet.

So I've tried creating a new index.html page in /opt/luminis/webapps/luminis (on solaris). I've taken the source code from the original login page, and made a new index.html from the code.

Luminis 4 - # of users/performance/loadbalancing

Submitted by carolhop on Mon, 10/29/2007 - 17:03

Hello, all.
We are on Luminis 4 - planning on upgrading to IV.0.1. We do have 16 Gb RAM (in anticipation of upgrading). We are running on Linux. (We are not yet in production)

We are curious about other schools running Luminis 4.x - how many users; website traffic; are you load balanced?
Did you go purely by the Luminis documentation, or did you have Sungard come and take a look at your setup?
Any information, or snippets of advice or "gotchas" you can provide would be great.

We are planning on loadbalancing soon, but we have not set it up yet.

Please someone help. Thanks in Advance.


Tab sharing - Luminis 4

Submitted by carolhop on Fri, 10/26/2007 - 10:53

I have a question

We made a tab called "Campus Life" using the student-lo account ... at first we thought it was going to be just for students, but now we want to make it available to Employees, too.

We know about the fragments I could make a fragment for both Employees and Students, but how do I "move" the tab from a student-lo to a newly defined fragment?

Does that question make sense?

Single Sign On into SITS e-Vision

Submitted by stevecarr on Thu, 10/25/2007 - 06:53

We decided to create our first SSO into our student e-Vision system. This entry may remind me how we did it when I do another one a little down the road. Doing our SSO involved getting to grips with pickup.response since I don't think there's much chance we would have a pickup.html put on the e-Vision server. It wasn't a particularly difficult SSO but we did take a day or so getting the various bits of configuration right.

The most notable thing from creating the SSO was using the pickup.response.

We are trying to upgrade our school luminis to luminis IV running on Windows 2003 servers. Thank you very much.


Tab that takes you directly to Administrative Page

Submitted by csilveri on Fri, 10/19/2007 - 11:07

I would like to go directly to
from a tab. This is entry into our Administrative Services Area. (I'm trying to cut down on clicks). I thought it would be just to cut and paste this into a framed url in the tab. I get to the page, however, it's doubled. And I can't get back.. I have to log out . I'm not sure why. Am I doing something wrong? or maybe just not thinking this through..
Any help is appreciated.
