Commons 1.5.9

I’ve just released version 1.5.9 of the CUNY Academic Commons. This maintenance release introduces a number of custom shortcodes for hosted projects, and fixes a bug in Prezi embedding.

In addition, 1.5.9 is a major plugin update release. See for a list of plugins updated with this release.

New WordPress plugin: Prezi WP

A member of the Commons community recently requested the ability to embed Prezi presentations into her Commons blog. I had a look at the options available in the repository, and the pickings were slim indeed. So I wrote my own plugin, Prezi WP. It’s pretty simple: use the [prezi] shortcode in your posts to embed a presentation. See the plugin homepage for more details on how to use the plugin, and how to download it and use it on your own WP installation.
