2021 continues to be a time of lockdowns and travel restrictions. While we have been feeling the effects of Covid-19 for a while now, there are still new challenges. After coming out of another lockdown we are confident that Vernon Systems can continue to our support and development work.
In reaction to travel restrictions we bolstered our online training. We have offered advanced and bespoke online training for some time, but installation and basic training were more often hosted onsite. To solve this issue our training team created an online course.
This course has been very well received and so busy that we have had to extend the number of participants. You can read more about the online course here.
This newsletter highlights recent developments with the Browser module. First we introduce new features in Browser Version 6 and then show how Tairāwhiti Museum has added multi-lingual navigation to their online collection and how the Australian Ballet uses the Browser module to allow all internal staff access to their database.
The Browser Version 6
We have been improving Vernon Browser’s template pages and site admin features. Online collection websites are built upon these template pages and customised to the requirements of each individual client.
The latest version includes support for Topic records published from Vernon CMS, and support for public comment moderation.
Multi-lingual navigation at Tairāwhiti Museum
In a first for the Browser module we are very happy to have been able to supportas they publish their collection.
The new website includes both te reoand English in the main navigation options, and the department names in the collections records have also been translated into te reo.
The Australian Ballet improves access for staff to their collection data
Vernon Browser has been implemented as an intranet site for staff at The Australian Ballet to search the production assets via colour, keyword search, Google API generated tags, Production name, TAB Premiere date, dancer, designer and choreographer.
