Temporary system crashes and scheduled down-time etc. are announced on the Pure homepage.

Error in publication list view on homepages using Pure plugin

Some web editors have experienced that the display of the department's publications using the Pure plugin in Typo3 has stopped working. The error occurred after we updated Pure to v5.19 on December 16, 2020.

The issue needs to be fixed in Typo3. To make the plugin work again, find the malfunctioning plugin in Typo3. Go to the tab “List of publications” and uncheck "Submitted" and "Accepted" options under Publication Status. Only Submitted and Accepted cause the mistake. The other status options can be checked.

The error has been reported to AU IT, who is responsible for the development of Pure plugins.

  • List of publication tab selected
  • List of options. Permitted options checked

Google Maps error on personal websites

We use Google Maps to generate the activity maps on the personal webpage. Google has changed their terms of use, which means that you will get a map-display error, and new activities will not be shown on the map. It is not possible to solve this problem.

Unnecessary repeats of organisational affiliations (Backend)

Due to a date-synchronisation error some users will notice that the same position at the same organisational unit is repeated under their organisational affiliations. The only difference being the period of employment. See example below:

We have cleaned up the errors we have found, and have consolidate the repeated affiliations into one continuous period of employment. If you see that the same affiliation repeated with multiple periods, write pure@au.dk so we can look into it.
