13 Exit page component

Summary

Include the exit page component in the URL to specify the web page to which a user goes after exiting FirstSearch.

The user goes to the FirstSearch manual logon screen after exiting when the exit page component is not included in a URL.

The following table contains options, formats, and examples for the exit page component:

Exit page Component format Component example
The page containing the link the user clicked to access FirstSearch done=referer done=referer
A particular web page done=[URL] done=http://www.oclc.org/


You must enter codes in place of certain special characters that may follow the http:// portion of the URL of the exit page. For more information, see Special characters in the exit page and library logo components.

Notes

Returning the user to the page containing the link clicked to access FirstSearch (done=referer) works only if the user clicked on a web-page link to enter FirstSearch. It does not work if the user typed the URL in the browser.

If a user's FirstSearch session times out or ends before the user exits properly, the user sees a message indicating that the session has ended. After clicking OK, the user returns to the page containing the link clicked to access FirstSearch.
