you could use image based linking for that. We are doing that, and
its working pretty good.
We do not have a static image for the fulltext link, but are getting
the image from SFX as well the fulltext link. To do that, we are
adding two parameters to the SFX Open URL:
If SFX does not find a full text for the record, it will show a
blank image. If it has a fulltext associated with the record, it
shows the normal fulltext button. I think, it has to be configured
somewhere in SFX, which image should be shown... But perhaps this is
even working automatically.
This is an article we have in SFX:
As you probably see, this URL displays only the fulltext button.
For VuFind, we have introduced a new parameter in config.ini, which
includes the dynamic graphic url:
All you have to do on template side is to change the static URL to
the SFX image into the dynamic one, which includes the two
Since this is an additional query to the SFX server, it might have
an impact on the performance of the VuFind frontend. But if you are
using a modern browser, that renders the images, when its already
displaying the content of the page, this should not hurt.
I hope, this is understandable...

anyone tell me why VuFind would show an SFX link on a
record when there is no full text?
