Tomcat WebVoyáge

Adding a New Tab

These instructions are for adding a New Books tab to the default "en_US" skin interface. The same principles hold for adding any new tab and for adding to other skins.

With the classic WebVoyáge, adding a new tab meant editing one file (opac.ini). With Tomcat WebVoyáge you will be editing three files. Make backup copies of files before editing.

{xxxdb} == your db name

File #1:  /m1/voyager/{xxxdb}/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/en_US/webvoyage.properties

Add the following:

  page.search.buttons.newbooks.button=New Books
  page.search.buttons.newbooks.message=New Books Search

File #2:  /m1/voyager/{xxxdb}/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/en_US/internal.properties

Add the following:

  page.search.buttons.newbooks.action=newBooks.cgi?sk=en_US

File #3:  /m1/voyager/{xxxdb}/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/en_US/xsl/userTextConfigs/pageProperties.xml

Add the following to the <searchTabDisplayOrder> section:

  <tab name="page.search.buttons.newbooks.button"/>
