    How to set up 'negative' or 'exclusion' limit?

    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9

    Question

    Default limits include a particular type of record (e.g., ONLY videos). How can a "negative" or "exclusion" limit be configured (e.g., exclude videos) for Basic Search?

    Answer

    1. On the server, cd /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/{your_skin}
    2. vi webvoyage.properties
    3. Find "Limit To"
    4. Add a new multiple limit (see example in Additional Information). Include all options for limit except the one to be exluded.
    5. Save changes.

    Additional Information

    Example: include all medium/format types except "videorecording"

    page.search.limitTo.NoVideo=
    page.search.limitTo.NoVideo.limit=MEDI=a|MEDI=c|MEDI=d|MEDI=g|MEDI=h|MEDI=k|MEDI=m|MEDI=s|MEDI=t
    page.search.limitTo.NoVideo.order=4
    page.search.limitTo.NoVideo.text=No videos
    

    Note all 'medium' limits defined in {your_skin}/xsl/limits.xml are included except MEDI=v (Videorecording)
