      Description

      This proposed extension (implemented by National Documentation Centre/EKT - http://www.ekt.gr) allows the automated creation of dropdown menus in advance search according to configuration options.
      This is not an option in DSpace 1.8.2 since the advanceSearch.jsp includes the options in the select drop down menus in a hardcoded manner.

      USEFULNESS
      ---------------------
      In case you change the search indices in the default dspace.cfg configuration file, the drop down menus in the advance search page are not automatically updated with these new indices. With this extension, you do not have to worry about the advance jsp page since it is automatically updated from the configuration file.

      CONFIGURATION FILES
      ---------------------------------------
      In the default configuration file of DSpace (dspace.cfg) just declare the search indices that you want to have in the drop down menus within advance search page as follows:

      1. Declare search indices to appear in drop down menus
        search.index.display.1 = author
        search.index.display.2 = title
        search.index.display.3 = keyword
        search.index.display.4 = abstract
        search.index.display.5 = author
        search.index.display.6 = series
        search.index.display.7 = abstract
        search.index.display.8 = mime
        search.index.display.9 = sponsor
        search.index.display.10 = identifier
        search.index.display.11 = language
