From Open Energy Information

This widget generates a list of recommended entries from OpenEI.org/search related to the page on which it is embedded or the given topic.

  • element (required) = DOM element string, such as #recommendationDiv or .recommendationClass
  • topic or url (required)
    • topic = string to use to retrieve search results, such as "Solar"
    • url = url string from a base of OpenEI.org/wiki/, such as "Gateway:Solar"
    • Either topic or url is required. If both are provided, only topic will be used.
  • randomizeResults (optional, default: false) = true or false to show differing results every time; default: true; this is done by expanding the result set and randomizing the rows that are returned
  • type (optional) = an array of type and number of types to return
    • default: one each of Articles, Images, Documents, Definitions, Community, Datasets, Help Pages, Map Files
    • Ex: to include 1 article and 2 images, add the parameters "type=Articles|type=1|type=Images|type=2".  The first call to type specifies the type, the second call specifies the number
    • Ex: to include 2 of every type, add the parameters "type=Articles |type=2 |type=Images |type=2 |type=Documents |type=2 |type=Definitions |type=2 |type=Community |type=2 |type=Datasets |type=2 |type=Help Pages |type=2 |type=Map Files |type=2"
  • iconSizeSmall (optional, default true) = true or false
  • htmlPrefix (optional, default "Recommendations for you<br>") - for security purposes, this is HTML escaped and thus you can use only text, not HTML
  • ignoreSpecificPage (optional) - case insensitive match, e.g. "Gateway:SOLAR" would match "Gateway:Solar" and not show that as a recommendation; include multiple by defining "ignoreSpecificPage=Gateway:Solar|ignoreSpecificPage=Gateway:Wind"

This Widget assumes the existence of HTML elements created by the ContentAssist template, and is called via that template.
