    Embed Content from OneDrive 

    You can now embed content from your school OneDrive using the new OneDrive block in the editor. The following tutorial explains the process.

    Note only Office file formats are currently supported (.docx, .pptx, .xlsx). Other file formats will render with icons and clickable links:

    When you add a file from your OneDrive, the integration automatically creates a “Everyone with the link can View” share link to ensure your blog audience has proper access to the file. Deleting the post will not revoke this access: You would need to navigate to the file in your OneDrive to manage access to the file.

    Shrinking Imagery Uploaded to the Commons 

    By default, current cameras and tablets create hi-res imagery that is too big to render effectively on the web. We are now automatically shrinking your images when you upload them to a max width of 1024px. You shouldn’t notice a change, other than posts with numerous images loading significantly faster.

    Please report any issues you come across.

    Slight Change to Media Management 

    We have made a small change to how media is handled on the Commons. We are troubleshooting a few issues in regards to broken links to images in posts, header images, or other broken links. Please feel free to reach out if you are seeing issues so we can be sure to patch all of the different edge-cases we may have missed in our migration.
