hi again,
tried reading the document, but yet to figure out how to achieve what i
wanted... am working on an agricultural content repository that is
currently being digitized- being of a nonprogramming/technical background
most of the instructions seem to be complex!
would it be possible for someone to quickly jot down a couple of
stepbystep instructions to achieve the same via the GLI - perhaps one
example of creating a bookshelf with subjects, then creating books,
followed by chapters within, etc- ie structuring the files i've uploaded
to appear as in the demo, instead of appearing as a mere non-hierarchical
this seems to be a recurring problem for novice users.. perhaps it could
be explained in the documentation itself..? saw this in the archive, didnt
find a reply to it though..

thanks again..would really appreciate any help at this stage..
