Why do I get the Error "There was an error while displaying your record." when I search WorldCat Discovery from the Search Box widget?
- When I perform a search in the Search Box on my library website, the search returns an error message of "There was an error while displaying your record."
- WorldCat Discovery
The code for the widget is out of date
- Navigate to Service Configuration > WorldCat Discovery and WorldCat Local > Search Box Generator
- Configure your Search Box
- Copy the code and insert it in your library website
Note that at the top of the Search Box Generator page you can see a preview of what your widget will look like, as well as testing searching.
If the issue is not occurring through the search widget see Why am I getting an "OOPS" error when going into WorldCat Discovery?
