    Make clickable URLs appear in OPAC Standard Format


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    Our 856 fields appear in the MARC tags and Name tags formats, but not in the "Standard format" (the "Full + Link" format).  Also, we want them to be "clickable" (-- rather than requiring that the user paste them into a browser session).


    [Note: It is not possible to have clickable hyperlinks appear in the  MARC tags and Name tags formats.]  

    In regard to the Standard "Full + Link" format....

    The edit_doc_999.lng has had a 856 "G" line (for GUI search) but no 856 "W" (Web OPAC) line.

    The following line was inserted into the "W" section at the bottom of the table:

      ## 856##                D LElectronic Location Y M     E       W

    Then restart the www_server.
