OPAC query screen enhancements in Inmagic Genie

by Administrator Sunday, June 22, 2008 10:23 AM

As well as adding canned queries to Inmagic Genie search results elsewhere on your web site, you can also add them right into the heading area on your query screens.

In this example above we have added links to a Journals List and to Recent Acquisitions.

The code to add the View All Journals link is the canned search syntax added to the Heading = parameter in your MyQueries.config file.

You can also move the links between Simple and Advanced searches to this Heading area instead of using the default drop down.

Don't forget to change the section at the bottom of the config file that lists which search screens display. We usually comment this out rather than remove it.
