It's great to have more social media options for Haiku sites.

Does the idea of a social media icon portlet replace the usual way of adding icons to Research Groups (i.e. in the 'Twitter URL' field)? Or is the idea that you could do either/or?

Also, the design of icons at the top of a home page needs to be fixed, as currently the Twitter icon literally bumps into the University brand mark (see http://www.oxstar.ox.ac.uk/) for example. There needs to be more white space here please.

Thanks

Hi Jacqueline,

Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it.

We are working already on the spacing and should have that sorted shortly.

In regards to the portlet in the research groups, we decided to leave both options for now to get a feel for how people want to use it, so you can use either or.

Thanks
Haiku Team
