Subject [greenstone-users] Queries on search features
Hi,
 
1) Currently my user were using basic search to search for images. However, I realised that including an advanced search option would improve on the search. I would like my user to be able to chose between basic or advanced search options, how do I create on different page (Basic Search Page and Advanced Search Page)
 
 
2) I would also like my user to be able to chose certain options from the drop down list on the search field under. Eg.
 
Basic Search
 
Search by <Committees> in .....
 
------------------------------------------------
|           Search field             | v  |
------------------------------------------------
 
v - button for drop down list of existing committees
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Advanced Search
 
Search and display results in order
 
Word or phrase                                   in field
------------------------------------------------     ------------------------
|           Search field             | v  |     |Committees|  v  |
------------------------------------------------     ------------------------
 
v - drop down list of committee
 
 
3) What does the (fold, stem) means when i set the preference for form search to advanced mode? Is it possible to remove it?
 
 
4) Is it possible to remove the query box as when i change the form search to advanced mode the query box appeared on the search page? I find that it is not relevant to my user, hence i want to remove it.
 
 
5) For the search history under the preference, I want to display in thumbnail form together with some metadata fields instead of displaying some code on the search/result page. As i think my user would not be able to understand the features.
 
Thank you.
 
Regards,
Jasmine
