We’ve been trying to use the author browse in our VuFind implementation, and we’ve been running into some problems that seem to be related to the copyfield tag in schema.xml.


For instance, the schema.xml has this field:


<field name="author_browse" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false" multiValued="true"/>


And these copyfields:


<copyField source=”author” dest=”author_browse”/>

<copyField source=”author2” dest=”author_browse”/>


However, when I look at a particular record in the Solr admin interface, the author_browse field doesn’t show up in the record’s XML.  My colleagues and I think that the author_browse field is just not being brought into solr.  But from what I understand about the copyfield tag, our code ought to be bringing everything from the author and author2 fields into the author_browse field.


Has anyone else encountered this problem?  Does anybody have an idea where we can look to fix this problem?
