    add URL links in 'More Information pane in the IIIF UV

    Created By: dave allen

    some steps on how to add a URL clickable link into the 'More Information' panel for the IIIF UV viewer 

    1. go to 'Deposits | Advanced Tools | delivery XSL files'

    2. edit the mets2manifest.xsl file (recommend that you keep a copy somewhere else just in case)

    3. add the following variables -- just to make life easier 

      <!-- facebook variables -->
      <xsl:variable name="FACEBOOK_HEAD">&lt;a href=&apos;</xsl:variable>
      <xsl:variable name="FACEBOOK"></xsl:variable>
      <xsl:variable name="FACEBOOK_END">&apos;&gt;Share with Facebook&lt;/a&gt;</xsl:variable>

    4. add the folowing - as each IE requires a 'Title', I set up the facebbook link so that it i generated based on a title.


        <!-- start Facebook section -->
        <xsl:for-each select="/mets:mets/mets:dmdSec[@ID=$IE_DMD_ID]/mets:mdWrap/mets:xmlData/dc:record/dc:title |                        /mets:mets/mets:dmdSec[@ID=$IE_DMD_ID]/mets:mdWrap/mets:xmlData/dc:record/dcterms:title ">                                                      {                                                                

          <xsl:variable name="URL_STRING " select="concat($FACEBOOK_HEAD,$FACEBOOK,$Handle,$FACEBOOK_END)" />
          <xsl:variable name="URL_STRING1 " select="encode-for-uri($URL_STRING)" />
          <xsl:value-of select="$LABEL" />&quot;,  <xsl:value-of select="$VALUE" />
          <xsl:value-of select="$URL_STRING " />&quot;                                              


          <xsl:if test="position()!=last() or count(//dc:title) &gt; 0 or count(//dcterms:title) &gt; 0">, </xsl:if>
        <!-- end Facebook section -->
