Sorry to hear you’re having
trouble signing up for the mailing list – this is the first time I’ve heard of
anyone having problems. I have just added you to the vufind-tech list
manually. Please let me know if you continue to have problems!
Regarding your Voyager problem,
this is also a new one to me – I’ve never before heard of only part of the
driver working correctly. Perhaps your particular instance of Voyager has a
slightly different database structure than others. Do you know what version
you are running? Do you have access to the Oracle database? If you have
database access, it might be worth testing the queries used by VuFind to see if
you can track down where they are going wrong. If you need tools to
investigate further, let me know – I can share some code I have used when
debugging my own institution’s Voyager system.

Subject: [VuFind-Tech] Logging in to Voyager
This has been troubling me for quite some time. I couldn’t
get authentication part to work.
I tried using ILS as authentication method, but getting an
error message: invalid patron login. And then I switched to DB which was fine
for adding to favorite, tagging and comment functions. But still I couldn’t
connect to the Voyager database to get the patron information. Other part of
Voyager driver seems working fine – live status and location information can be
pulled from our Voyager database. Am I missing something?
And also, I tried to subscribe to the general mailing list
from sourceforge several times, but never got the confirmation email. Is there
any other way to do this?
Thanks in advance for any of your help.
