Description

click on the Browse button on the right side of the search bar.
select archival descriptions.

Header on the browse page will read:
"Browse [ # ] Archival description"

Resulting Error:
If there is more than 1 archival description, the sentence is grammatically incorrect.

Expected Result:
"Browse Archival description(s)"

Adding "(s)" at the end of the word description covers any relevant scenario (ie whether there is one record, or many).

Note that this extends to other browse pages, notably:
  • Browse Authority record(s)
  • Browse Archival institution(s)

In the other cases, we are already using the plural only. We could decide to do this with all cases, but it will sometimes be gramatically incorrect when a user applies search facets to limit the results to 1. Perhaps this use case isn't as prominent as to be alarming however. Still, the use of brackets avoids this - but may be more glaring for the eye.

#9 Updated by Jessica Bushey over 8 years ago

AtoM 2.0 Interface is now using the following phrase on the Browse archival descriptions result page:

"Browse # Item" (e.g., Browse 3 Item)

There are two problems with this approach. The first problem is the issue of singular and plural (which is the general topic of this bug issue). The second problem is the use of the term "item" when that term refers to an actual level of description (e.g., item, file, series, fonds) If you browse archival descriptions, the view screen says "Browse 3 Item", and then you select fonds from the Level of Description Facet on the left, and the resulting view screen says "Browse 2 Item", but it is actually displaying two fonds.

This problem can be solved by using the phrase: Browse archival description(s).

  • Estimated time changed from 1.00 to 4.00

We'll have to figure out a way to pluralize UI terms in our db.
It's not a regression, we had the same problem in 1.x.
