At today's developers call, we discussed some user interface issues related to Tuan and Luke's cart patch for VuFind. The cart patch adds checkboxes in search results that add items to a cart from which bulk operations (save, export, email, etc.) can be applied. Unfortunately, this works a bit differently from the existing checkboxes in the user list area, which creates a confusing inconsistency. To allow everyone to see this in action and do some brainstorming for discussion on the next developers call, I have installed the cart patch in the "demo_trunk" instance of VuFind, available here:
Please take a look (and feel free to create an account for building lists if you haven't already). If you have any questions, problems or suggestions, you can share them on this list or hold them for the next developers call, where we will discuss the issue in more detail and hopefully come up with an action plan for completing the patch so it can be committed to the trunk when VuFind 1.3 development begins after August's 1.2 release.
