Facets plugin - improved version

Hello.

I’ve just published on GitHub an improved versione of the Facets plugin, originally developed by https://github.com/AR2L.

The plugin allows to refine Items browsing via a block of dropdown lists of available values. List of elements is now fully configurable, as it sorting order and other details.

I believe this version addresses also the positioning issue reported by @Lissmarie in Move position of Facets, as it can use a custom hook instead of the public_items_browse one.

I’ve submitted a pull request to the original developer to merge the code; in the meantime, if anybody will have a chance to further test my version and report possible issues, that’d be really appreciated. The improved plugin version can be found at https://github.com/DBinaghi/omeka-facets-plugin.

Thanks.

Thanks to @jflatnes (How to loop through ALL and JUST searched Items?), I could improve the way the plugin is taking into account already existing filters, so there should be no issue now with very large Items subsets. New files are already on GitHub.

Now the plugin’s feature has been extended to Collections; release version is at https://github.com/DBinaghi/plugin-Facets/releases/tag/v2.0

Hope this helps.

Now the plugin features different layouts, to better adapt to horizontal and vertical layout themes.
Release version is 2.2 (https://github.com/DBinaghi/plugin-Facets/releases/tag/v2.2), just submitted for Omeka plugins list, should appear there soon.
