    OPAC: Add Links to the Action Box

    Created By: Laura Guy

    [This article was copied from the Voyager Wiki.]

    Introduction

    This relates to the "New" Tomcat WebVoyage that is included in Voyager 7.0.1 and forward.

    We wanted to add four links to the Record Display "Action Box" (see the screenshot below). Two of these were static links to help pages, two are search redirects allowing patrons to do a simple ISBN search against our consortium's unified catalog and against WorldCat. These were capabilities provided in our 'classic' interface and we wished to continue their availability in the new interface.

    Create xsl file

    Each of the four links is a separate xsl file. These files live here: /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/your_SKIN/xsl/pageFacets

    The following example is the xsl file for creating the "Item Status Help" link you see in the following screenshot (filename: infoStatus.xsl)

    Code Example

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <!--

    **              Description: infoStatus.xsl creates static link to status info

    -->

    <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

            xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

            xmlns:page="http://www.exlibrisgroup.com/voyager/webvoyage/page"

            xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">

     

    <!-- ###################################################################### -->

    <xsl:template name="infoStatus">

    <a target="_blank">

       <xsl:attribute name="href">http://www.mines.edu/library/instruc...st-status.html</xsl:attribute>Item Status Help</a>

    </xsl:template>

    </xsl:stylesheet>

     

    Create a different xsl file

    The next example is the xsl file for creating the "Search WorldCat for Item" link you see in the following screenshot (filename: isbnwcSearch.xsl). It looks at the first 020 field, trims any unwanted data, and uses it to perform an isbn search against WorldCat

    Code Example

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <!--

    </xsl:if>

     

    </xsl:template>

    </xsl:stylesheet>

    Edit displayFacets.xsl File

    Once you have created your xsl file, you need to add it to the displayFacets.xsl file located here:

    /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/your_SKIN/xsl/pageFacets/

    1) It needs to be added as an include at the top of the file (the below example shows four of these includes that I've added, along with the googleBooks one that came out-of-the-box):

    Code Example

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    2) Then you need to call that file lower down in the displayFacets file (look for the 'div id="infoStatus"' below):

    Code Example

    <!-- ###################################################################### -->

    <xsl:template name="buildActionBox">

    <xsl:param name="pageRecordType"/>

     

        <xsl:for-each select="page:element[@nameId='actionBox.group']">

            <div class="actionBox">

                <a id="actionBoxQuickLink" name="actionBoxQuickLink"></a>

                <!--h3>Action Box</h3-->

                <!--ul class="actionBoxList"-->

                 

                <xsl:for-each select="page:element[@nameId='actionBox.thisItem.group']">

                    <div class="thisItem">

                        <label><xsl:value-of select="page:label"/></label>

                        <h2 class="nav">Action Box</h2>

                        <ul title="Action Box">

                         

                            <xsl:for-each select="page:element">

                                <xsl:choose>

                                    <xsl:when test="@nameId=$pageRecordType">

                                        <li><span class="recordPointer"> </span><label><xsl:value-of select="page:linkText"/></label></li>

                                    </xsl:when>

                                    <xsl:otherwise>

                                        <li><span class="recordLinkBullet">·</span><a href="{page:URL}"><span><xsl:value-of select="page:linkText"/></span></a></li>

                                    </xsl:otherwise>

                                </xsl:choose>

                            </xsl:for-each>

                        </ul>

                    </div>               

                </xsl:for-each>

     

                <xsl:for-each select="page:element[@nameId='actionBox.actions.group']">

                    <div class="actions">

                        <label><xsl:value-of select="page:label"/></label>

                        <h2 class="nav">Action Navigation</h2>

                        <ul title="Action Navigation" class="actions">

                         

                            <xsl:for-each select="page:element">

                                <li><span class="recordLinkBullet">·</span><a href="{page:URL}"><span><xsl:value-of select="page:linkText"/></span></a><br/><span class="fieldSubText"><xsl:value-of select="page:postText"/></span></li>

                            </xsl:for-each>

                        </ul>

                    </div>                       

                </xsl:for-each>

     

                <xsl:for-each select="page:element[@nameId='actionBox.moreAboutThisItem.group']">

     

                    <div class="moreInfo">

     

                        <label><xsl:value-of select="page:label"/></label>

                        <h2 class="nav">Action Box More Info Navigation</h2>

                        <ul title="Action Box More Info Navigation" class="moreInfo">

                         

                            <xsl:for-each select="page:element">

                                <li>

                                    <xsl:call-template name="buildImageUrl">

                                        <xsl:with-param name="eleName" select="@nameId"/>

                                    </xsl:call-template>

                                </li>

                            </xsl:for-each>                          

                        </ul>

                    </div>

                 <div id="infoLocation">

    <ul><li><span class="recordLinkBullet">-</span>

                 <xsl:call-template name="infoLocation" />

    </li></ul>

                 </div>

                 <div id="infoStatus">

    <ul><li><span class="recordLinkBullet">-</span>

                <xsl:call-template name="infoStatus" />

    </li></ul>

                 </div>

                <div id="prospSearch">

    <ul><li><span class="recordLinkBullet">-</span>

                 <xsl:call-template name="recordIsbnSearch" />

    </li></ul>

                </div>

                <div id="wcSearch">

    <ul><li><span class="recordLinkBullet">-</span>

                 <xsl:call-template name="recordIsbnSearchwc" />

                 <br />

     

               <!-- ## mdp add the google book template ## -->

                <div id="googleBooksRow">

                   <xsl:call-template name="googleBooksAvail"/>

                 </div>

             

                </xsl:for-each>          

                <!--/ul-->

            </div>

        </xsl:for-each>

     

    </xsl:template>

    <!-- ###################################################################### -->

    </xsl:stylesheet>

    Finally update your webvoyage.properties file

    Lastly, you need to add your new section to the webvoyage.properties file. Note the 'actionBox.moreAboutThisItem' line:

    Code Example

    ###########################################################################

    #

    # Holdings Information Section

    #

    ###########################################################################

    holdingsInfo.page.title=Catalyst Holdings Information

    holdingsInfo.page.heading=Holdings Information

    holdingsInfo.page.label=Bibliographic Details

     

    #========================================================

    # Action box on the holding information page

    #========================================================

    actionBox.thisItem=This item

    actionBox.recordView.linkText=Record View

    actionBox.staffView.linkText=Staff View

    actionBox.actions=Actions

    actionBox.actions.makeRequest.order=1

    actionBox.actions.makeRequest.linkText=Make a Request

    actionBox.actions.makeRequest.link.posttext=(e.g. Hold, Recall, Request)

    actionBox.actions.print.order=2

    actionBox.actions.print.linkText=Print

    actionBox.actions.export.order=3

    actionBox.actions.export.linkText=Export

    actionBox.actions.email.order=4

    actionBox.actions.email.linkText=E-mail

    #NOTE the option.email variable must be Y in order for the email link to appear.

    actionBox.actions.addToList.order=5

    actionBox.actions.addToList.linkText=Add to My List

    # This additional section is additional Library Information

    # LG

    actionBox.moreAboutThisItem=More Library Information:

    # actionBox.openURL properties in holdingsInfo.X.properties

    # actionBox.requestURI properties in holdingsInfo.X.properties
