Comment 1 Owen Leonard 2011-08-23 18:37:45 UTC
OpacBrowser appears now. Still no OpacCloud. Is that feature still functional?
Comment 2 Marc Véron 2012-09-25 07:36:08 UTC
I find the following in prog\en\modules\admin\preferences\opac.pref:

#        -
#            This system preference does not actually affect anything
#            - pref: OpacBrowser
#              choices:
#                  yes: Show
#                  no: "Don't show"
#            - a subject browser on the OPAC (generated using <code>misc/cronjobs/build_browser_and_cloud.pl</code>).
#        -
#            opac-tags_subject.pl is the only script affected by this, and it is not linked to by any other page
#            - pref: OpacCloud
#              choices:
#            - If ON, enables subject cloud on OPAC

At an other place, OpacBrowser is re-implemented, the appropriate lines can be deleted here.

Regarding OpacCloud:
If I activate the syspref (restoring missing choices) and set the preference to "ON", I get an additional menu item and text as follows:

Subject cloud

Note: This feature only available to French catalogs where ISBD subjects have been populated, and an index built by separate script.

I find additional references to OpacCloud in:


Questions remain:

Is that feature still functional?
Dead code? 
To be removed?
Comment 3 Mirko Tietgen 2012-09-25 09:08:12 UTC
I have been using the Opaccloud before, it needed some fiddling but worked. It's been a while ago, have not looked into using it with 3.8 yet but was planning on using this eventually.
Comment 4 Katrin Fischer 2012-09-25 10:08:02 UTC
We got it working in the past too - I am against removing it. I think keeping it out of the standard feature set (system preferences) is ok for now.

Comment 6 Mirko Tietgen 2012-10-04 11:37:41 UTC
Added the option to the admin interface. Does not touch the actual feature.
Comment 7 Mirko Tietgen 2012-10-04 13:03:41 UTC
The feature works as intended when enabled and the script related to this feature has been run.

Bug 4177 opaccloud missing from the system preferences interface

There is no option to toggle the (existing) syspref OpacCloud. This patch adds one.

Inserted tags manually, enabled system preference, tag subject cloud displays nicely.
Comment 9 Jonathan Druart 2012-10-18 14:27:35 UTC
