23.3.24 Self-regis­tra­tion enabled

Data­base users can now register for user accounts without emai­ling the Census. Simply click on the Register link at the top of the data­base, in the right-hand side of the menu bar, and follow the instructions.

23.3.24 Select hier­archy levels

The data in the Census is orga­nised hier­ar­chi­cally: the Pantheon, for example, is a top-level entry that includes many sub-entries under­neath it (the cella of the Pantheon, the portico of the Pantheon, etc.). The Codex Cobur­gensis is a top-level entry that includes all of the pages of the Codex as sub-entries.

In the Census, by default users will auto­ma­ti­cally retreive all possible hits for a search. A search for the Codex Cobur­gensis thus brings up the top-level record for the Codex AND all sub-records, that is, all pages of the Codex.

By selec­ting an appro­priate hier­archy level, you can now choose to search only top-level records (records that are not subor­di­nate to other records). This method is useful, for example, when sear­ching for the Codex Cobur­gensis or the Pantheon itself rather than a parti­cular page of the Codex Cobur­gensis, or a parti­cular column of the Pantheon.

To change this default setting, choose ‘top-level only’ from the drop down menu labelled ‘Hier­archy: auto­matic’. In this manner you can limit your results and can find top-level records more easily.

21.3.24 RDF files published
