Browse Hierarchal Collections Help Prov 1.7.5 (SOLVED)

edited September 2017 in Troubleshooting
Hi, Back again!
I have been experimenting with hierarchal collections for our museum library and have configured the Library like this-
Library Collection.
                         Special Book Collection
                         Africana Book Collection
When I browse Collections - Internal I only get Library Collection, if I click on this and open the Library Collection editor screen and go to summary it shows me the Internal Contents of this collection i.e Special Books and Africana Books . Is it possible set the  browse results screen to see these child collections under Library Collection and be able to click on them to access their editor pages. I tried adding the line below under
# ------------------------------------
# Show/Hide child records in search/browse results
# ------------------------------------

ca_collections_children_display_mode_in_results = alwaysShow
This did not seem to make any difference, any suggestions


  • I seem to have solved this problem, got a bit confused between collections created under NEW and collections added via Lists $ Vocabularies .. After moving all the collections to Collection Types in Lists&Voc., I was able to see the child collections.
