Search for object catalogue type 'archaeology'

Postby SianW » Wed May 11, 2016 4:38 am

I have found that the search 'cat_type:archaeology' no longer works, although searches for 'cat_type:archives'; 'cat-type:art'; 'cat_type:history'; 'cat_type:photography'; all seem to work fine. If I search for 'cat_type:arch*' this does seem to work. This means that the Wordpress implementation of the eHive catalogue has a search hyperlink that doesn't work either.

Hi Sian,
We've done some investigation on this and have found a bug in the WordPress plugins. The links are set to search for cat_type:archaeology, whereas the system stores this data as cat_type:archlgy.

We're working on changing the system to store the full word as this will fix the links on WordPress without any upgrade to the WordPress plugins. The full word is also more readable.

We'll should have this updated on the live site next week.

Thanks,
Paul

Hi Sian,
We've upgraded the main eHive site to fix this problem. The links on your site will now be working correctly.

Thanks,
Paul
