    Question

    How to add a new index to Basic Search options in WebVoyage?

    Answer

    1. Connect to server as voyager user.
    2. /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/{skin}
    3. Open webvoyage.properties to edit.
    4. Find "Search Basic" section.
    5. Identify order number for index. Must be unique.
    6. Decide on key for index. Must be unique.
    7. Add 4 lines for new index, using order number (step 5) and key (step 6).
    8. Save changes.

    Additional Information

    Example:

    • Order numbers in use are 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10
    • New index will use 9 as order number (unique - not in use)
    • New index will use nameHeadingBrowse (unique - not in use)
    • Note that if a non-unique order number or key is used, index may not display in interface
    Resulting addition to webvoyage.properties:
    page.search.basic.search.code.nameHeadingBrowse=
    page.search.basic.search.code.nameHeadingBrowse.code=NAME+
    page.search.basic.search.code.nameHeadingBrowse.order=16
    page.search.basic.search.code.nameHeadingBrowse.display=Name Headings Search
