Adds visibility options to all uploaded media files with two varieties of control. One type of control allows you to set individual files as being private and also gives you control over the kinds of users that can have access. If you are familiar with the Private Sites plugin then you will notice that the options for the user types are the same.
The other type of control works in tandem with the Private Sites plugin. When you set a site as private, within Settings > Reading : Site Visibility, all files are made private. Individual file controls will not be visible when an entire site is made private.
A user is required to login to view private files and will be prompted to do so when accessing a file directly.
One thing to keep in mind while using this feature is that setting a file as private moves the file to a different folder on the server thus changing the URL.
Courses plugin can provide details to display UConn’s course offerings from the Student Administration System, with real-time enrollment and wait list space (if available) information. This plugin is enabled upon request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your website URL to request for this plugin.
Once enabled, site administrators will see a Courses configuration page (Dashboard>Settings>Courses) with the instructions on how to set up the plugin. You can also select which fields to be displayed and reorder them from the configuration page. Using courses shortcodes, you can build a Course Directory, Course List by Subject or Class Details page.

Breadcrumbs are based on the hierarchy of the pages. First you need to have a parent page. Then on the child(ren) page(s), choose the parent page in the Parent drop-down menu in the Page Attributes section on the right-hand side, and Publish or Update the page(s).
When you go to the screen that lists all your pages, you can see that hierarchy shown with the dash next to the child(ren) page(s). In the screenshot below, Other Custom Plugins page is the child of Plugins page.
Once the Breadcrumbs option is set to be On in Appearance > Customize > Navigation Options > Breadcrumbs, the breadcrumbs will display on top of the child(ren) page(s).
Precrumbs can be added to the left of the Breadcrumbs to add links to other pages or parent sites. Go to Appearance > Menus, click on create a new menu, enter “Precrumbs” as the Menu Name, add menus items and click Save Menu.
The Precrumbs and Breadcrumbs are displaying on the top of the Other Custom Plugin page now.
The University User Profiles plugin continues to work, and will be supported for existing sites. However, it will not be available in newly made sites, or any site that uses any theme released after Hale 2015. Sites that wish to upgrade to a newer theme will need to convert their UUP content to UC People.
- Follow the instructions for Importing Users to UC People. This will create a “person” for every public user.
- Create a People Page to replace each User-List and User-Table page that you had used previously.
- If you created profile pages for each user, you want to find those within Pages and then either change their status to ‘draft’ or delete them. This is just to avoid duplicate entries for each person.
- Fix any broken links to profile pages, replacing them with the new links to each person.
