SubjectsPlus v4.x

SubjectsPlus is a a LAMP/WAMP application that allows you to manage a number of interrelated parts of a library website:

  • Research Guides (i.e., subject, course, etc.)
  • Database A-Z List
  • Staff List
  • FAQs
  • Suggestion Box
  • Videos (i.e., produced in-library)

It was originally developed at the Ithaca College Library, and primary development is now taking place at the University of Miami Libraries. It is made available under the GNU GPL.

Requirements

  • PHP >= to 5.3 - 5.6
  • MySQL --anything over 4 should be ok
  • Web server -- usually Apache, but some people have SubjectsPlus running on IIS
  • JavaScript enabled for the admin to work properly.

If you run into any missing/weird functionality, check that the following extensions are enabled for PHP:

  • cURL
  • MySQL
  • mbstring (not necessary, but you'll need to tweak header.php without this)
  • simplexml (for reading RSS feeds)
  • json (some data is stored as json)
  • gettext (only if you need internationalization, aka translations)
  • gd (image resizing--notably for headshots and generation of video thumbnails)

Installation

Check the readme.txt file, or look at the wiki.
