Enhanced Feature Status

The Enhanced Feature Status section allows you to view the status of various enhanced features used within the LMS.

To access Enhanced Feature Status;

  • Ensure the proper Active Team is selected; should there be more than one Active Team.
  • Click on the LMS Admin tab.
  • Click on the Configuration tab.
  • Once in the Configuration panel, click on Enhanced Feature Status.

Ajax Extensions: Ajax Extensions are required. These are provided by default in all SaaS Hosted solutions. Make sure these are enabled: Host Settings > Advanced Settings > Other Settings > Enable AJAX.  

If you are running on localhost or your own dedicated server, you may need to install the extensions yourself.

Enhanced Charting: The Accord LMS utilizes the Telerik Charting control on the Learner > Dashboard page and in some of the Reports Modules. It should be automatically enabled when the module set is installed.

If you see a pie chart displayed (like in the image above) this means charting is properly configured and enabled. If not, click Configure. This will enable you to update your web.config file.  

Some shared web hosts do not allow applications to update the web.config file programmatically.  In this case, you will need to make the edits to web.config manually.

web.config

Make the following updates:

<system.web>

   <httpHandlers>

     <addpath="ChartImage.axd"type="Telerik.Web.UI.ChartHttpHandler"verb="*"validate="false"/>

   </httpHandlers>

</system.web>

<system.webServer>

   <handlers>

<addname="ChartImage_axd"verb="*"preCondition="integratedMode"path="ChartImage.axd"type="Telerik.Web.UI.ChartHttpHandler"/>

   </handlers>

</system.webServer>

maxRequestLength: This feature allows you to change the maximum file size that can be uploaded and its timeout settings.

  • Enter a number (in KBytes) for a New Maximum Size for upload files in the field provided.
  • Enter a number (in seconds) in the New File Timeout field to regulate the amount of time that can pass before the operation times out.

Some shared web hosts do not allow applications to update the web.config file programmatically. In this case, you will need to make the edits to web.config manually.

web.config

Make the following update:

<httpRuntime useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="true" maxRequestLength="102400"

executionTimeout="12000" requestLengthDiskThreshold="102400" />

LE Loader Path: Select whether to use the default LE Loader Path or the one indicated in SiteUrls.config file.

XHTML Compliance: Some older DNN installations have XHTML Compliance set to Transitional. This creates problems for Ajax utilization. XHTML Compliance should be set to Mixed Mode.

If you cannot set XHTML Compliance to Mixed Mode via the provided user interface, you will need to edit web.config manually. Since Mixed Mode is the default setting, you only need to delete or comment out the old setting:

web.config

Make the following update:

<!--<xhtmlConformance mode="Transitional" />-->
