Hi Blanca

In future please send your questions in the email rather than as an
attached document - its much harder to answer like that.

I have never tried to display the first page of a PDF. You could try
using the convert_to pagedimg_gif option for PDFPplug (you'll need
GhostScript installed), then try displaying [child(1):srcicon]. Not sure
if this will work or not.

To link e.g. an Author to a search for that Author, you need to create
an index on Author, then the format statement needs something like:
Author:<a href='/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-alice--00-0-21-00-0-0-11----0-0-&a=q&q=[cgisafe:Author]&h=dau'>[Author]</a>
where dau is the index name for the Author index - you can find this in

For multilevel hierarchies, you can either assign hierarchical metadata
separated by | (eg Cards|Red|Spades|Ace), and then use Hierarchy
classifier, or use GenericList with multiple metadata eg, -metadata
Organisation/Author (separate levels with /)

The metadata item in the menu bar is no longer there.
what did you want to do?

If you like the formatting of a particular collection, I suggest you
look at its config file. You can always access a config file on line -
it'll usually be at server-name/gsdl/collect/coll-name/etc/collect.cfg

If you need more help, please send your questions in the email, and
clearly state what you are trying to achieve.
