Include a facility in the OPAC to include hover text for the Help icons, clickable authors, clickable subjects, etc.

This is achieved by specifying the hover text, in quotes, in the value 3 field. Note that the Sequence 2 value needs to be at least '1'. Note also that apostrophes should be input as "&apos;", for example:

"Bob&apos;s help page"
  1. For Help Icons, use value 3 (in quotes) on the tidetails array; help_page or help_page_reviews setting accordingly
  2. For QL search options, use value 3 (in quotes) on the ql_search setting

Clickable authors, subjects and objects will use the link text itself as the hover text.

As part of desupporting WebView, various changes should be made to remove the references to WebView. This includes the OPAC Configuration settings and layouts.

WebView only settings can be found in the "webview_archive" configuration block in order to assist with migration. These are excluded from the search by setting, but can be found using the search by config. block.
