[Koha] 362 and 310 Fields not displaying

Unfortunately just editing the bib frameworks won't do anything. For the Normal, ISBD, and OPAC views, the MARC is processed with XSL templates, and if the templates don't do anything to fields 310 and 362, then those fields will not show up. (This is the case with the default XSL files that come with Koha.) To make field 310a show up in the Normal view, edit MARC21slim2intranetDetail.xsl and add the following piece of code in it:

<xsl:if test="marc:datafield[@tag=310]/marc:subfield[@code='a']">
 <span class="results_summary pubfreq"><span class="label">Publication frequency: </span>
 <xsl:for-each select="marc:datafield[@tag=310]">
 <xsl:value-of select="marc:subfield[@code='a']"/>
 <xsl:choose><xsl:when test="position()=last()"><xsl:text>.</xsl:text></xsl:when><xsl:otherwise><xsl:text>; </xsl:text></xsl:otherwise></xsl:choose>

Note that XSL is quite picky, and you can't just add this anywhere - your best bet is to look for a label you see in the Normal-view, such as "Volumes: ", and putting the code in the empty line before that block of code.

You could also copy the MARC21slim2intranetDetails.xsl somewhere on the server, make the syspref XSLTDetailsDisplay point to it, and edit that copy instead.

The XSL-file for OPAC is called MARC21slim2OPACDetail.xsl, and you could add the same code to it.

Similar thing can be done for 362, just by changing the number 310 in that piece of code.

Subject: [Koha] 362 and 310 Fields not displaying

310 (CURRENT PUBLICATION FREQUENCY) do not display in the normal view. I
have edited the MARC Bibliographic framework, specifically so that they
would display.

Editing them was not straightforward, however. When I looked at the MARC
framework it said all the subfields for 362 were hidden, but when I went to
the actual subfields, some of them were marked visible (though they
weren't).  Just changing the advanced settings on a particular subfield had
no result, it still said 'hidden' (in the list, and when I viewed the
record), but if I went in and unticked and then ticked every box for all
the subfields, then it said it was no longer hidden.  However,  the
information that is in the field 362 still does not display in the record.
Although set to view in OPAC, staff interface and editor. . . the only
place this information shows is in the MARC record.

Is there something I'm missing? Or have we got a case of gremlins?
