That's what I did. Thanks.

The easiest way is to adjust the recorddriver_tabs section to eliminate all references to comments – that will turn off the comments tab and thus make all comments-related functionality inaccessible.

I managed to kill comments by editing module.config.php, but I'm not sure I did it the right way. How should it be done?

For comments, if you are using VuFind 2.0, you can disable the comments tab through the module.config.php – that’s relatively easy (let me know if you need more specific details and I can look them up).  In 1.x, you’ll have to do theme hacks.


For tags, in either 1.x or 2.x, it’s going to take some theme changes to get rid of them – they’re in quite a few different places.  If you’re going to go to all that trouble (at least if you’re working with the 2.x code, since it will continue to evolve), it might make sense to implement a mechanism to disable them from configuration so that we can get the feature into the main codebase and it will continue to work properly in the future as more things get added as well.  If you’re interested in doing that, I’d be happy to discuss my thoughts on how to make it happen.

We'd like to disable comments and tagging. I see a couple related issues in jira that are unresolved.


Is there a sledgehammer way to disable them?


The worst case I'm thinking is that I'll have to heavily edit the them to disable those features.
