Hi Alessandro,

Thanks for the changes. Do you have an existing test installation
publically available. The GlobalOptions.js contain quite a few different
settings that wouldn't make it compatible with the demo projects in the
main branch. So it is a bit of work to set up your copy at my machine.

I would prefer if I could have a look at an existing working installation.

I have some questions below:

Does this concern the builtin search method that uses QGIS server? The
one in the panel on the left?

yes - maybe we should introduce a messaging system like in QGIS desktop
with a message bar that pops up at the top of the map panel but does not
block the interface. Until then you could use the status bar at the bottom.
