๐Ÿ”Set Hierarchy preferences

A drop-down menu located underneath the search bar allows users to change search settings so that only the 'top-level' records appear.

By default, when a user conducts a search, the system automatically retreives all possible results. A search for the Codex Coburgensis thus brings up not only the top-level record for the Codex Coburgensis, but also all sub-records ordered underneath this parent entry, that is, all pages of the Codex.

By using this drop-down menu to adjusting the search settings, users can choose to see top-level records only. If 'Top-level only' is selected, only records that are not subordinate to other records will appear. 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 โ€˜Top-level onlyโ€™ from the drop down menu labelled โ€˜Hierarchy: automaticโ€™.
