Create a Configuration file for Button Discovery

In v1.5+ you can now create a configuration file so that users can easily discover and add buttons.

The format is:

<cvcf>
<button name="yourbuttonname1" sourcePath="http://yoururl/yourbuttonname1.zip"/>
<button name="yourbuttonname2" sourcePath="d:\yourbuttonname2.zip"/>
</cvcf>

Note that the sourcepath can be a file path or online URL.

You can save the file as any extension, e.g. .txt so you don't need to configure any additional file types on your web server, however, if you save the file as a .cvcf file, then it will be associated with the Controlled Vocabulary button.

NOTE: it's important that the zip file contain yours button folder at the root level as it will be extracted directly to the Buttons folder for integration with Controlled Vocabulary
