Thanks a lot, the config.ini was a great tip and indeed resolved the RTA issues.

Regarding the 1.3 code, i guess i;m missing something - i saw in the link you gave me only the vufind itself but not the source code, meaning - if i want to continue working on it and develop a new feature - don't i need the source code?

As for the SOLR suggestion - i'll try it further on and will update, i have also enabled the debug mode and hope it'll help me understand the system...

Thanks a lot for the meanwhile!

Yes, that's definitely an ILS driver issue -- what ILS are you using?

I don't know why but this outlook won't let me write from left to right

As for your answer: first thanks a lot for your responses, they're very helpful!a

regarding issue '1' - what i've meant you can see in the attached screenshot, it's not  aURL but within vufind it can't find the records' call number and location

As for the other suggestions  - i'll try them further on and update 


where from can i download the code for 1.3 version i can see the 'Browse the code' option only for newer versions?

Unfortunately, your email is a bit garbled – it seems you’re still having some problems with right-to-left vs. left-to-right text display. I’ll try to guess what you are asking, but I apologize if I’m misunderstanding anything!


1.       Could you show an example URL that is not working? I’m not sure exactly what you are saying is not working.

2.       If you turn on the debug setting near the top of your config.ini file (in the local/config/vufind directory) you should see some debug information embedded in your web pages (though certain AJAX functions may stop working as a side effect). If you want to see the Solr messages, you can set the JETTY_LOG environment variable to a filename prior to starting the vufind.sh script, and all Solr output will be captured to that file.

3.       Are you looking for the online documentation at https://vufind.org/wiki/ ? We had some technical problems over the last couple of weeks, but it should be working now. Let me know if you’re still having trouble.


Again, sorry if I’m answering the wrong questions here!


- Demian

I'd please like to post a few questions:

Finally i've succeeded to install vufind (Linux on vmware) and imported records, when i perform a search the RTA ('loading...') is never stops and doesn't retrieve any information, does anyone know what iam i missing?

I want to play in the UI and see the running log during runtime, how can i do it?

How can i create a new user, login with it, etc. - where is all that documentation is placed in vufind's site?

thanks in advance,
