Record Search browse images only collections

Hi Dorothy, I see that you have changed the link within the wiki, on the England Diocese of Durham Bishops' Transcripts, 1700-1900 and England Norfolk Church of England Parish Registers and Bishops’ Transcripts articles, so that someone following the link will end up in Record Search on a screen that invites them to Search records in the collection or browse images, the words browse images being a link to the same page linked from the Search by Collection, Europe page.

However if someone tries to search for anything on that page no results are found. I believe this is because the images are not yet indexed. As this is the case why not restore the link on the wiki article so that it takes a user straight to the Browse screen? --Steve 15:04, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi Steve. Now I understand what you had in mind. I'll leave the ones that you've created there. I don't think our unit will be adding that to the template at this time, however. I am trying to find out what the purpose is of having a bar with 0%. I'll e-mail you if I find that out. Thanks for being so creative! Your templates are wonderful, just what we didn't realize we were looking for until we saw them. I appreciate you working with Chris Lake. He is our main wiki guy.
Thank you. Now you understand why I had added the option to change the link to the Browse screen, I will restore the ones I had already changed. I have already told Chris about this option being available in the template. --Steve 15:49, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Brazil, Bahia, Port of São Salvador Passenger Lists (FamilySearch Historical Records)

Dorothy sorry it took so long for me to replay to your question. It was placed on my User page not talk page so I didn't know it was there. User:Kellimon who is a Missionary at Historical Records put a delete on this page. I have gone back and found the main link to the collection doesn't go to any collection but to [[1]] which appears to be a port to many pages in many languages. Hope this helps.
