Description (last modified by jukka) (diff)

All main sections should have links to most common browsing criteria (like age group for content, or interactivity level for activities), which display results as specified in #193. Each "browse by" should display:

  • name of the criterion (like "language") as a heading, which is a link to a page that shows all the specific values for that criterion
  • 3-5 most common values for the criterion separated by commas, which are direct links to those queries, followed by an ellipsis (...).

An example of such a system is http://dir.yahoo.com/.

The browsing criteria are:

Browse Content

  • by study subject (category)
  • by language
  • by age group
  • by tags

Browse Activities

  • by language
  • by age group
  • by tags

Browse Tools

  • by language
  • by tags

Browse People

  • by name
  • by location
  • by language
  • by tags

See the prototype pictures of #154, #155, #156, #157 (although they are not fully accurate about the appearance of the browse by links).

I'm planning to take this ticket, but I'm a bit puzzled with these 'browse resources'-links. They take to pages where all of the all material is ordered by criteria of choice, but not yet filtered anyway? Are actual search fields and ways to filter, for example, only Finnish material, supposed to be in that page (#193)? Why is the 'browse-by'-area in prototype pics so big if it contains only these links? Or are fields/choices supposed to be given in that area?

Jukka, this is a user story, so you can't "take" this ticket. But you can take ticket #201, which is an implementation ticket of this story. In that ticket you should implement the "browse by" links, but nothing else.

I've changed the body of this ticket to match the discussion we've had with Hans and Teemu two weeks ago.
