    Can we get rid of "Previous Page" and "Next Page" buttons on holdings screen?

    • Article Type: General

    We are testing v18 WebOPAC. We noticed that the holdings page shows a "Previous Page" and "Next Page" button above and below the list of items. If the list of items is very short, the buttons are inactive. I'm assuming that they become "active" if the list of items reaches a certain length. Is it possible to configure WebOPAC so these 2 buttons disappear if the list of items in the holdings page is short (i.e. fits on one page)?

    The screen is: and is generated by the HTML file "item-global-prev-next".

    This behavior is hard-coded into the program. If the system finds any Z30 records at all, it opens up item-global-prev-next and adds the links, which will either be dimmed or live, depending on how many lines are to display. If it is above the threshhold set by the environment variable, "www_no_items_display", the Next button will be live. If you are not on the first screen, the Previous button will be live. But the two buttons will be there no matter what.
