Hi dear list

I just installed the new version of GSDL (2.9). In the previous version we used (2.6), the interface was customized by images. In the new version I found the interface now became a mess.. L

Following a guide I found in wiki http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/gsdoc/tutorial/en/using_macro_files.htm <http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/gsdoc/tutorial/en/using_macro_files.htm>

I could made some changes including the images such as chalk and gsdlhead.gif and so. However I did not see any reference on how to deal with images for the navigation bar and banner (home, help, preferences)

I understand that I can either use css stylesheet using macros in nav_css.dm or nav_ns4.dm.

For example for the help link I added the following to my collection/macros/extra.dm from nav_css.dm

package Global

HELP {_gsimage_(/cgi-bin/library?e=d-00000-00---off-0gsarch--00-0----0-10-0---0---0direct-10---4-----dfr--0-1l--11-en-50---20-about-Muhammad+Rafiq--00-0-1-00-0-0-11----0-0-&a=p&p=help,_httpiconchelpof_,_httpiconchelpon_,help,Help page)}

_httpiconchelpof_ {/gsdl/collect/rnhdlnon/images/chelpof.gif}

_httpiconchelpon_ {/gsdl/collect/rnhdlnon/images/chelpon.gif}

_httpiconhhelp_ {/gsdl/collect/rnhdlnon/images/h_help.gif}

I also removed p.bannertitle from images/style.css

So I received an error line regarding the HELP macro - It seems it is not recognized. Non of the help images I moved into collect/my collection/images where displayed

I'm a kind of lost.. I will highly appreciate any clue regarding these issues, or example or guide.

Thanks, so much,

Gloria Toro
