    Can We Change the Order of the Search Forms ?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 4

    Description:
    Can we change the order of the search forms?
    Instead of
    QuickSearch | Find Database | Find e-Journal | MetaSearch | My Space
    We want:
    QuickSearch | MetaSearch | Find Database | Find e-Journal | My Space

    Resolution:
    The order of the search forms at the top of the MetaLib screen can be changed in the following files:
    navigation
    navigation-guess

    The order is controlled by the following excerpt:
    <li id="navigationQS" class="$5100">
    <a href="&server_vir?func=quick-1" title="//QuickSearch\\" accesskey="1">//QuickSearch\\</a>
    </li>
    <li id="navigationFD" class="$5200">
    <a href="&server_vir?func=find-db-1" title="//Find Database\\" accesskey="2">//Find Database\\</a>
    </li>
    <li id="navigationFE" class="$5300">
    <a href="$7000" title="//Find e-Journal\\" accesskey="3" target="$7100">//Find e-Journal\\</a>
    </li>
    <li id="navigationMS" class="$5400">
    <a href="&server_vir?func=meta-1" title="//MetaSearch\\" accesskey="4">//MetaSearch\\</a>
    </li>
    <li id="navigationMy" class="lastItem $5500">
    <a href="&server_vir?func=eshelf-2" title="//My Space\\" accesskey="5">//My Space\\</a>
    </li>

    Each 3-line group (li, a, /li) controls one of the search forms.
    The following would result in the requested change:

    <li id="navigationQS" class="$5100">
    <a href="&server_vir?func=quick-1" title="//QuickSearch\\" accesskey="1">//QuickSearch\\</a>
    </li>
    <li id="navigationMS" class="$5400">
    <a href="&server_vir?func=meta-1" title="//MetaSearch\\" accesskey="4">//MetaSearch\\</a>
    </li>
    <li id="navigationFD" class="$5200">
    <a href="&server_vir?func=find-db-1" title="//Find Database\\" accesskey="2">//Find Database\\</a>
    </li>
    <li id="navigationFE" class="$5300">
    <a href="$7000" title="//Find e-Journal\\" accesskey="3" target="$7100">//Find e-Journal\\</a>
    </li>
    <li id="navigationMy" class="lastItem $5500">
    <a href="&server_vir?func=eshelf-2" title="//My Space\\" accesskey="5">//My Space\\</a>
    </li>
