    Question

    We want the "Limit To" dropdown on the Basic Search Page and also the "Filter Your Search" panel on the search results list to not display in WebVoyage.  How can we do that?

    Answer

    This is a two-step process:

    1) Comment out the options in the "Limit To" stanza in webvoyage.properties:

    #===============================================
    #page.search.limitTo.selected=none
    #page.search.limitTo.none=
    #page.search.limitTo.none.limit=none
    #page.search.limitTo.none.order=1
    #page.search.limitTo.none.text=All Material
    #page.search.limitTo.2006AndAfter=
    #page.search.limitTo.2006AndAfter.limit=Date=2006-
    #page.search.limitTo.2006AndAfter.order=2
    #page.search.limitTo.2006AndAfter.text=2006 And After
    #page.search.limitTo.English=
    #page.search.limitTo.English.limit=LANG=ENG
    #page.search.limitTo.English.order=3
    #page.search.limitTo.English.text=English language materials
    #page.search.limitTo.Videos=
    #page.search.limitTo.Videos.limit=MEDI=v
    #page.search.limitTo.Videos.order=4
    #page.search.limitTo.Videos.text=Videos
    #==============================================================================#
     

    2) In /css/resultsTitles.css replace the .filters stanza with this code, which includes a new declaration: "display: none;" at the top:

    .filters {
    display: none ;
       width: 20%;
       float: right;
       background-color: #c9e5ff; 
       border-top: 1px solid #62b3ff;
       border-bottom: 1px solid #62b3ff; 
       border-left: 0px solid #62b3ff;
       border-right: 0px solid #62b3ff;
       margin-left: 5px;
       margin-right: 0px;
       margin-top: 10px;
       overflow-y: hidden;    
       overflow-x: hidden;
    }

    Note that in the file, you see a lot of other style declarations in the .filters section. You can ignore them--they'll be obviated by the fact that the whole panel will no longer be displayed.
