I have seen other people have wished for linked keywords before. However, it seems the issue has been linked and closed in the respective github issue. The milestones for OJS3.2 say that you are planning on implementing browsing of keywords, but not actually the linking of the keywords as clickable tags.
For us this is a very important feature and I would like to suggest you include it again.
Readers and authors are used to having keywords that refer to a list other documents that use the same keywords. This feature would add significantly to the usability of the OJS frontend.
That plugin is not supported anymore (it isn’t compatible with 3.1.2.*). Anyway, I believe @fpannach would like those keywords (tags), which are listed on the article page, to be displayed as linked ones (clickable).
I just wanted to chime in on this part from the original message:
That issue is filed against 3.2, but primarily in order to adapt our browseBySection plugin into the core application. I don’t think we will include browsing by keyword (or linking) in 3.2.
That’s not because we don’t want to. We really want to make that happen! And when we include it, it should definitely be possible to link the keywords. But unfortunately other higher priorities have crowded it out so far.
I’m afraid I don’t have a good answer for you. To my knowledge, it is not scheduled formally or informally in any future version. It is a popular request, though.
I’ll tag @israel.cefrin here, who is helping us prioritize UX work for the frontend, so that he is aware. I’ve also asked for some clarity about which part of the issue is scheduled for 3.2, and I will try to split out the different parts of that issue so that we can be more clear about which parts are scheduled or not.
yes we would be willing to sponsor the development if that could help speeding up the implementation.
And thanks for opening up the issues, that does described perfectly what’s needed (at least from our side) and should prevent any misunderstandings in the future.
