I am using a wiki for the first time in Blackboard 9.1. In participation and grading, I can see those who have modified wiki pages, with "Compare to version X" link appearing in the "User's modifications" column.
When I click to compare the versions, there are no apparent visual differences highlighted between the two versions (difference may be there in the text, but there is no way to identify them other than word-for-word comparison).
When I click on Legend, the sample text is identical for Text Added, Text Removed, and Text Changed. How do I view the page comparison so that the user's modifications are plainly apparent?
David - this is probably due to your institution using a theme other than the default. We had the same issue but if went back to the default theme it was corrected.
hope this helps.
To go back to the default theme won't be a solution, because we want to use our own branding. A colleague has found out that the default css directs to diff.css But I can not find the diff.css in the downloaded as_default.zip.
Is it possible to direct to /webapps/Bb-wiki-bb_bb60/css/as_default/diff.css in our own theme.css?
Rather than trying to direct to the diff.css from the building block, you might try making a copy of the diff.css file, adding it to your theme .zip file, and editing the theme.css file to include it the same way the other .css files from the theme are included with the "@import..." statement.
Thanks for the answer. I have tried to find the diff.css file, but I cannot find this in the default theme zip.
There isn't a diff.css file in the as_default.zip theme. That's why I suggested that you copy the diff.css file that you want to use into the theme .zip file and edit the theme.css file to load it along with the other .css files.
Had the same problem.
I grabbed the contents of diff.css by using a browser and pointing it at https://name-of-your-server-here/webapps/Bb-wiki-bb_bb60/css/as_metal/diff.css (as_metal is the brushed metal theme. If you don't have this one use one of the other default themes).
Paste the text from the browser window into a text editor and save the file as diff.css
Download your custom theme and add the diff.css file to it.
Edit the theme.css file and add the following to the end of it:
Upload your modified theme and the diff tool should now highlight changes correctly.
