Today I was looking in the listserv archive, and found that I *had*
received a response to my first posting. My apologies to everyone,
and particularly Andrew Nagy. I'd posted questions back on January
14th, but somehow managed to never get the message of Andrew's nice
reply, so I'm sure you felt ignored, Andrew. I'm sorry.
I've discovered a few things in the interim, and am posting several
questions, or problems, that I'm encountering.
While most of the VuFind directory structure appears to be defined
and static, some aspects appear to be under the implementer's
control. I have, more or less, created directory structure diagrams,
partially for documentation, and partially to help familiarize
myself with VuFind and its friends. Which parts are dynamic, i.e.,
We've currently set up a development machine on which I'm working.
I had a small .marc file from our Voyager box, and used import.sh to
import that file. It trundled for quite some time and the import-log
file led me to believe that I had a successful load. Yet when I do a
search, I come up with nothing. What do I look for, and what might
have gone awry?
Back to my original question from a while back...I need to add some
additional fields and index them. Andrew had responded, in part:
You need to edit the schema.xml and the
vufind.properties to add a new field to VuFind. But then what do
to do with that new field? If you want to search by it, you will
edit some PHP code. There is a field called "allfields" in the
schema. This field get populated by all marc fields > 100. So
your field is already in the vufind index.
The fields I'm to add are:
I'm going to assume that these new fields will need to be
searchable. From my looking around, I think the following will need
schema.xml (for biblio)
Then I think I will somehow have to compile things, or rebuild
them, possibly with ant. Here's where I have more difficulty, as I
have no real experience with Java, and just recently learned that
ant is a java build tool. What do I need to do?
