    How to use the TITLE field to a link for the Full Record display?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Description:
    Please can you advise what we need to configure to ensure that titles (listed in OPAC brief search results) link to the Full View of Record (like the search result numbers)?

    Resolution:
    To enable the title field in the brief view to link to the full record display, you need to add a javascript in the file short-a-body of the $alephe_root/www_f_eng directory. Here is the required change:

    From:
    <td class=td1 $2500 width="30%" valign=top>$0500 </td>

    To:
    <td class=td1 $2500 width="30%" valign=top>
    <script>
    title = '$0500'; recordLink = '$0100'
    recordLink = recordLink.substring(0,recordLink.indexOf(">"));
    document.write(recordLink);
    document.write(">");
    document.write(title)
    document.write("</a>");
    </script>
    </td>

    Then clean the utf_files directory by using util x/7. There is no need to restart the www server.
