    Make a MARC subfield clickable (hyperlinked) in Voyager Tomcat Webvoyage

    • Product: Voyager
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare



    We would like to make the 520 field, subfield u, "clickable" in WebVoyage.  It is currently displaying as plain text and not clickable as a hyperlink.  How can we make it clickable?


    Tomcat Webvoyage is not set up to display links unless they're in an 856 field. Displaying the 856 links requires using a special Display Code (3000) in displaycfg.xml which calls the BMD3000 template in the display.xsl file to create the links.  

    To make a MARC field that is not an 856 field clickable, you would need to develop custom programming.  This is beyond the scope of Voyager Support.  The Voy-L listserv would be a good place to ask if any customers have developed such code.

    Additional Information

    See Chapter 7 of the WebVoyáge Architecture Overview and Configuration Models guide for more information on the Display Codes.
