generally speaking favourites aren't public on other websites - are we sure that we really want to make these public in ;plumi?

actually youtube makes Favourites public, and then lists them on your profile page. other users can subscribe to your Favorites also...

so maybe the suggestion is we could incorporate Favourites into the Author page, and thus a user knows that their favourites are publicly available.

also making Favourites available in a portlet in the user's dashboard.

There are a number of these types of options cropping up, maybe they should be incorporated into a configlet rather than hard-coded? This would also break out some of the elements that are arguably a want of engagemedia as compared to something that should be setup in plumi by default.

Hey Dave, yr prob right and this is arguably more of an EM thing and I don't think it's such a desired option that it's worth making a configlet for.

It does beg the question of how to manage these options if we want to make them available to others, however the management of them could become more work that is worth it. In that sense deciding what is worth making an option for other people and what should just be an EM thing is an important distinction to make

Anna and I had a good chat about this yesterday and she was going to look into making a list of various options here.

From Dave:

There was going to be a list of various options added, with regard bookmarking, if there were to be public bookmarks it may be better to use something like Tasty Bookmarks for EM site :

Hmm, well whatever is the easiest & simplest way of enabling this functionality (keeping in mind that users on already have favourites, so dealing with how to migrate these is also an issue, including making something previously private public - will need to at least email all site users to notify this has occurred).

personally i think overriding the default plone setting of this folder, to make it public instead of private, and then adding the setting to reverse this (as dave has done below) is fine:

the only thing remaining then is to add favourites to the author page to bring these in.

Actually I just tested this, and it isn't working yet.

I changed the setting back and forth a couple of times, then changed it to un-ticked (i.e. favorites should be public).

I then logged in as a different user (with no favorites yet) and added a favorite. I navigated to the folder and oddly the favorite did not appear at all:

It did however appear in the folder_contents view (as private):

Also that favorites folder for that Member is private.

Given that I'd changed the setting in the configlet - I suppose both the favorite itself and its folder should be public.

don't worry about doing this in configlet, just do by default in Plumi for now.
