Mysterious behaviour of Add New Work

Postby MandyShaw » 19 Apr 2015 07:25

Hi
I've just started putting up a new batch of scores having not done so since February.
The Composer page entry that is auto-generated seems to have lost its automatic link to the score, I am having to add them all manually. The link against the edition on the Score page is fine.
Is there something new I should be doing?
Many thanks
Mandy

P.S. I've just also spotted that a setting of a psalm (122) has automatically been listed on the relevant psalm page when I used the LinkText template, any other changes I should be taking into account? Thanks!

This is intentional. Direct links to scores on the composer page are not recommended as they bypass the work page, preventing that information are duly provided about copyright conditions and credits to the editor, as required by the CPDL and CC licenses.

The absence of direct links also allows to automate the work list, at least for composer pages that are simple enough. See details here.

Ah, OK Max, that does make sense (I must admit I never really understood what those links were doing there in the first place - I just assumed it was part of the standard setup). I won't bother to add them in future.

I'd just come in to report the same thing. Having found this thread, I've just gone and taken all the direct links off my own composer page.
