Hi Emil,

For all greenstone collections using the default interface: from the preferences page (click the preferences button to get there) choose "advanced query mode" for boolean searching.

For greenstone collections built with the mgpp indexing software (as opposed to mg) an advanced form search is available that allows searching on metadata fields.

As for date range searching, there is a feature for searching by a range of years. If you add the following line to a greenstone collection's collect.cfg file:

format    Queryinterface    Datesearch

The search interface will display a facility for date range searching on the "Date"
metadata item.

hope that was helpful,

Dear Colleagues,
I am looking at the Greenstone interfaces from the page. They are all the same. Is it possible to have a more conventional search page, Boolean AND OR NOT on specific fields, range search on dates, etc?
If so, can you advise me of locations.
Thanks in advance.
