Removing a book from the catalog

Postby stefan » Thu Nov 28, 2013 9:38 am

Hi,

I try to remove a book from the catalog, but this does not work: I can uncheck the box for catalog display, but the book remains in the catalog and the checkbox is still checked when I go to the catalog page again.

Feature suggestion: In spotlight there should be an option to disable a spotlight rather than deleting it altogether.

Thanks

Stefan

Hi Stefan,

When you save the form with the "Create a catalog entry for this book based on the metadata below" box unchecked, does the form appear to save properly, or is there a spinner that never finishes?

and I am immedeately thrown to the PDF page:

Here I can press "Save" and it notifies me that it saved something, but the catalog entry is marked as present again when I look the next time.

Best

OK. I realized my mistake: I have to go to the "Monograph" tab rather then the "Catalog" tab. I guess there is room for improvement here, since if users want to change something regarding the catalog they are looking for things named "catalog" and not monograph.

Hi Stefan,

Actually, I think you've happened on a bug; both should work. I'll take a look.

Hi Stefan,

Just refreshing my memory on this --

As I recall, there are 3 levels of approval. There's the listing for the book itself; then another for the metadata; then another for the publication format (e.g. PDF). This reflects the various kinds of publicity you might want to grant a book that may be accepted but incomplete, or various mixtures of open and closed access.
