Reply to: Cross references without page number after the link?May 1, 2011 at 1:39 am
I was successful at getting this modification to work, for what it's worth. Borrowing/inspired by your code in a somewhat related topic here: topic=1127.msg3605
I modified the code, and then inserted it into my links.xsl file as follows, adding the part shown here in bold:
Then in XMetal I just typed “noPageCitation” into the outputclass attribute field of my link, and bingo. No more “on Page XX” after any link that I mark with that outputclass.
I also went through everything it takes to omit page citations from links entirely, before I figured the above out.
If that might be interesting for anyone, that amounted to, in a condensed description:
-Deleting the section in the template above starting with
-Adding the entire modified “insertPageNumberCitation” template to the custom.xsl file (actually creating an xm file containing the template code then referencing it in the custom.xsl file)
-Making sure the appropriate line was un-commented in the catalog.xml file,
— and that was it.
With that modification, no links at all had “on page XX” after them. However the more selective toggling of it is the one I really wanted, so I'm thrilled that the above works.
