I got a request/question at PLA.  They wanted to know if there are no search results could we have a Meebo widget pop up to go to the ask a librarian IM account.  One other library has this enabled: http://www.davidleeking.com/2007/11/30/fun-with-our-meebo-widget-and-the-library-catalog/

I would object to making changes specifically to enable a Meebo widget. It would be better, I think, to offer an option to add some custom HTML content to the page in the event of no results. Then the library could choose Meebo, a custom message, or whatever they wanted.

I like that idea too :)

For 3.4 I'm going to work on this.  Because of the way Meebo handles widgets (and because of Owen's comment) I can't dynamically create a Meebo widget on the fly in Koha - so here's my idea.  I am going to add a new system preference: NoResultsFoundBlock to allow the library to enter code to appear on the page if no results are found.  This will give the library control over what appears on the page when there are no results found - they may want to put help text there instead of a chat widget- or they might want to implement a widget other than Meebo.  Anyway, this will give the library control.

I really like this idea!

This patch allows librarians to enter text that will display below the 'no results found' messages in the OPAC.
