Disabling the portal bullhorns by setting portal.bullhorns.enabled=false in sakai.properties adversely affects the layout and controls in the Sites panel. When bullhorns are disabled, I observe the following behaviors:
- The star shaped controls in the Sites panel for (de-)selecting a 'favorite' site are not displayed.
- The following controls are unresponsive when clicked: Organize Favorites tab, the 'X' for closing the panel, and the down arrows on each site tab to to display a menu of that site's tools.
However, the buttons for View All Sites, Create New Site, and Preferences still seem to function.
See the attachment "SitesPanel_BullhornsDisabled.png" for an example of a Sites panel when bullhorns are disabled. The corresponding "SitesPanel_BullhornsEnabled.png" attachment depicts the same panel when bullhorns are enabled.
