This seems to have fixed the specific issue I reported. We'll keep an eye out for any other issues with the 7xx links.

Actually, the problem is that the ISBN value has a trailing colon on it; colons have a special meaning in Solr, so it's causing the link query to fail.  A simple fix is to put the ISBN string in quotes -- then everything works.  See this ticket for a patch, and please let me know if it works for you so I can commit it:

You still could run into a problem if the 785 ISBN and 020 ISBN don't exactly match between related records; it might make sense to adjust the SolrMarc record driver's getFieldData() method to parse the ISBN out of the string and eliminate subsequent parenthetical notes...  but doing that may cause undesirable side effects in some situations, so I'd be inclined to leave it alone unless there's a compelling reason to do it.

I enabled 7xx field linking and we're having some trouble.


The example record is here: (please ignore the hot pink, we're working on a color matching issue).


If you click the "Continued by" link you get "No Results!" I believe it's because our ISBN field contains additional notes. Shouldn't the Continued by field use a stripped-down form of the ISBN field? How can I fix it?
