Month: May 2016

Thank you for your feedback!

In the three days the CBD feedback form has been up, I’ve received 35 responses with some very useful feedback. Thank you to everyone who submitted ideas on how I can improve the site over the summer! I’ll leave the form up for another few days just in case you want to add your two cents, but with this data I think I’ve got enough of a direction to start planning.

Because I like having open data, I’ll share some of the insights.

CBD Summer Schedule and Feedback

As it has done for winter and spring breaks, CBD will be taken offline during Carleton’s summer break. (This is largely because most facilities have different hours than normal during the summer, and not everyone posts them as abundantly as academic term hours.)

The full schedule is as follows:

  • Tuesday, May 31: Reading Days and finals hours posted for common facilities (dining facilities, Libe, KRLX, etc). These will take effect automatically.
  • Tuesday, June 7: Site is switched to LDC only (all other facilities will be hidden)
  • Friday, September 9: All facilities return with academic term hours

In the meantime, please give me feedback on the site by filling out this form if you have a minute. I’ll try to give the site a bit of improvement over the summer, as not much has changed since its full (v2.0) launch in late September 2015.

Whether you’ve used the site a hundred times or you’ve never heard of it, and whether or not you give feedback via the form above, thank you for using the site – it means a lot to me!

KRLX Playlist v1.0 Release

I’ve released the first public version of the KRLX Playlist widget!

Ever since we switched to our new website, we haven’t had a publicly viewable song log running. With this plugin it is now possible to have a running ticker of what’s been played on air.

Although the commit history might seem fairly short, WordPress does have a bit of a learning curve to it (though thankfully it’s not super steep). It’s exciting for me to now have a bit of experience in WordPress under my belt. Next up, SAS!
