Hi Katherine,

Thanks, it's working now. One more change was needed, see below
The history problem is probably caused by the OS/webserver difference
(Unix/Apache vs Windows/IIS). So be it, I'll just delete history.db or
make it read-only.


function updateqt (value) {
if (value != 0) location.href = location.href + "&qt=" +
value + getargs();

function updateqt (value) {
if (value != 0) {
href = location.href;
while (href.match(/&cc=[\w]+/)) href = href.replace(/&cc=[\w]+/,
location.href = href + "&qt=" + value + getargs();

Hi Rene

You can edit the gsdl/macros/ file to get rid of that annoying

In javascript functions updatel(), updatev(), updatew(), add the line

while (href.match(/&cc=[\w]+/)) href = href.replace(/&cc=[\w]+/,

just before the last line of each function:
location.href = href + getargs();

And this should fix it. Let me know if it doesn't.

As for question 2, I don't know. Search history uses the z arg (user
as the key to look up previous history - I am not sure how that gets
set. But if you get a new z value each time you log on to the
collection, then you will have no search history by default because it

can't find the old stuff.
If you explicity want to clear the history, you can use
delete_all_history_info (const text_t &userid, const text_t
from src/recpt/historydb.h
But I am not sure where you would want to call it from.
