Re: [EP-tech] Ask about searching

Hi Agung,

What you might want is a bespoke simple search that only specifies those four fields to be searched upon but this would only give one box rather than four.  So you would then need to put something in the search page's preamble phrase to explain what can be searched upon.  However, from your mockup it looks like this maybe a search you want embedded in your template.  You can hack what would be an advanced search to create this.  Here is a quick go I have had:

<form method="get" accept-charset="utf-8" action="">   <input name="screen" id="screen" value="Search" type="hidden"/>
  <input name="dataset" id="dataset" value="archive" type="hidden"/>
  <div class="ep_table">
    <div class="ep_table_row">
      <input name="title_merge" type="hidden" id="title_merge" value="ALL"/>
      <div class="ep_multi_heading ep_table_cell"><span id="title_label"><span id="title_label">Title</span></span></div>
      <div class="ep_table_cell"><input name="title" maxlength="256" aria-labelledby="title_label" type="text" class="ep_form_text" size="15"/></div>
    <div class="ep_table_row">
      <input name="creators_name_merge" type="hidden" id="creators_name_merge" value="ALL"/>
      <div class="ep_multi_heading ep_table_cell"><span id="creators_name_label"><span id="creators_name_label">Author Name</span></span></div>
      <div class="ep_table_cell"><input name="creators_name" maxlength="256" aria-labelledby="creators_name_label" type="text" class="ep_form_text" size="15"/></div>
    <div class="ep_table_row">
      <input name="keywords_merge" type="hidden" id="keywords_merge" value="ALL"/>
      <div class="ep_multi_heading ep_table_cell"><span id="keywords_label"><span id="keywords_label">Keyword</span></span></div>
      <div class="ep_table_cell"><input name="keywords" maxlength="256" aria-labelledby="keywords_label" type="text" class="ep_form_text" size="15"/></div>
    <div class="ep_table_row">
      <div class="ep_multi_heading ep_table_cell"><span id="keywords_label"><span id="keywords_label">Year</span></span></div>
      <div class="ep_table_cell"><input name="keywords" maxlength="256" aria-labelledby="keywords_label" type="text" class="ep_form_text" size="6"/></div>
    <div class="ep_table_row">
      <input name="satisfyall" type="hidden" id="satisfyall" value="ALL"/>
      <input value="Search" name="_action_search" type="submit" class="ep_form_action_button" role="button"/>

You will certainly need to do a bit of work to get it into a format like the mockup you included by altering the CSS but the search form itself should be sound and perform a search that requires all values entered to match the fields they have been entered against.   As this is your own bespoke form you can modify it to add your own class and id attributes where needed to make it easier to modify your CSS to make the form appear like your mockup.

I'd like to ask about searching in EPrints. Is it possible to make a search form like advanced search but without options "All of" and "Any of"?

The search form design is like this below

Maybe someone can help me with this problem?

Thank you.

Best regards,
