Item11594: SubscribePlugin needs better method to limit when to render the subscribe button

Priority: Enhancement
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.2.0
Target Release: minor
Applies To: Engine
Component: SubscribePlugin
Branches: trunk

This really needs to be under tight admin control due to performance issues. See Item11326.

DISABLEDPLUGINS can be used, but overriding it in a topic could fail to include this plugin, resulting in issues. The admin should be able to specify which webs get the subscribe button without depending upon the DISABLEDPLUGINS setting.

  • Add config parameter: $Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{SubscribePlugin}{ActiveWebs} = '';
  • Add a new context variable - SubscribePluginAllowed and change templates to use this context.
  • Add setting SUBSCRIBEPLUGIN_ACTIVEWEBS ignored if the configuration parameter is specified.

Note, This change will cause an empty Subscribe link using 1.1.5 templates:
Edit | Attach |  | Print version | ...

The fix for 1.1.x is to edit the file templates/viewtopicactionbuttons.tmpl and change the context test from SubscribePluginEnabled to SubscribePluginAvailable
