Creating Browse Views

Settings

Make sure that the sort order for the writing systems are set correctly in FLEx, as the alphabet is automatically created based on how you set it up.

This is an example of how the dashboard in Webonary will look like after you imported your data:

In order to have a browse view based on the analysis language appear in Webonary, this information needs to exist in the “Reversal Entries” field in FLEx. This information must be exported from FLEX and imported to Webonary.

If you have a reversal index other than English, you will also need to add the “Reversal Index Alphabet” and “Reversal Index Language Code”.

Pages

After the import has completed, check your browse page. The browse pages have already been created for you, but you might need to edit the short code if you have several reversal indexes and the order turns out to be different. You can see which shortcode each reversal index uses in your dashboard.

These are the codes and their templates:

  • Vernacular – English: [vernacularalphabet]
    (use the template “Page Fullwidth”)
  • First reversal language – Vernacular: [reversalindex1]
    (use the template “Page Fullwidth”). The code for a second reversal index would be [reversalindex2]. You can also add a new page for a third reversal index and the code [reversalindex3].
  • Categories: [categories]
    (use the template “Page Categories”)

Also don’t forget to edit the title (e.g. “Your language” instead of Vernacular)
