Browse configuration, normalizedDates

edited September 2013 in Troubleshooting
Does the normalizedDates facet only work with single-element elements (as the attribute facet)? I don't get any results when applying it on an attribute with sub-elements.


  • It should work on DateRange elements in containers as well as stand-alone.
  • edited September 2013
    My dateRange element is located two steps down (ie and I've tried both "container.sub-element" and "container.container.sub-element" in browse.conf without luck.
  • Don't do the three levels. The namespace for a container is flat no matter how deep sub-containers are nested. container.sub-element should work, container.container2.sub-element will not.

    Send me your profile and we'll take a look
  • Ok. I sent you the profile.
  • Tried to do this again today but can't figure it out. Any ideas?
  • Still haven't figured this out. As soon as I try with a single non nested element it works but when it is further down in the hierarchy it doesn't.
  • Did you ever figure this out? I'm struggling with the same problem 7 years later!

  • Sorry. I can't remember how it worked out then but it works now using 1.7. The element I'm using is nested a couple of containers down and all I do, as stated above, is setting the element_code to container.sub-element (leaving out the containers in between).
