Hi Richard,

I tried what you suggested, and unfortunately it did not "partition" the
names after the "district" grouping. Perhaps it is a limitation of that
classifier, in that it doesn't allow you to partition within a partition?

Well I'll continue to try other things, including other classifiers, but I
would hate to mess up our "layout" - including the format statements that
we had worked hard on in terms of fine tuning it to display the results
the way we want it to.

But we'll definitely keep our fingers crossed, and hope others on the list
can offer suggestions or advice.

Thanks again for looking into this.

Ju Sun

Hi Ju Sun Yi,


I note you currently have ( in your collect.cfg file for that collection)

classify GenericList -sort_leaf_nodes_using
dc.PersonalName -metadata dc.Coverage^spatial/dc.Coverage^district
-partition_size_within_level 100 -buttonname Location
-always_bookshelf_last_level -partition_type_within_level constant_size


For that classifier.

Try:

classify GenericList -sort_leaf_nodes_using
dc.PersonalName -metadata dc.Coverage^spatial/dc.Coverage^district
-partition_size_within_level 100 -buttonname Location
-always_bookshelf_last_level -partition_type_within_level
none/none/constant_size


note the change:

-partition_type_within_level constant_size

to

-partition_type_within_level none/none/constant_size


See if that gives you what you want.

You might also try:

-partition_type_within_level none/none/per_letter

Note that the slashed arguments allow you to specify different partitions
for different levels of the hierarchy.

Best Regards,

Richard

Dear List,

After entering so many records into the GLI we notice that in our
"Location" browse section, the number of documents within a "bookshelf" is
quite large. Is it possible to have the documents group together in
sections by alpha, such as our "Name" browse section? In other words, we
would like the page to display like this:

Island of Molokai:

Kalaupapa: (132 Items)

Abc-Def Ghi-Klm Nop-Qrs...etc.

Abc, John
Abcd, Jane
Abce, Mary
etc.


So instead of having ALL 132 documents be listed when someone clicks on
"Kalaupapa" - the person would see only the first 50 documents, and would
go to the next alpha section to view the others, and so forth.

Right now we are using the "GenericList" classifier. We would like to use
this type of browsing classifier because we have found that this works in
terms of the way the other information displays, which makes it easier
when they are "browsing" because it can help to narrow their search.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Ju Sun
