Regarding your 1st question, i not aware of any such function in Greenstone, but its a great idea to display list of recent additions!
Regarding your second question, if you want to display classifier's info on about this collection page, then edit macro file for following
1. locate # text macros and then textTitleshort_ {access publications by Title} and append a line below for your own metadata on which the classifier is based on. e.g if your metadata id is Conference then add textConferenceshort_ {access publications by Conference}
2. simillaryly locate _textTitlelong_ and add your metadata's info as
_textConferencelong_ { <p>You can <i>access publications by Conference</i> by pressing the <i>Conference</i> button.  This brings up a list of books in
alphabetic order.  any other info ..........................}
Hope this info works for you.

Hello List,

after a week of fiddling I have a passable collection online . I have 2 questions:

I have been trying to implement a function on the collection home page which lists the 5 newest documents to the collection. I have had a go at implementing a macro in the collection description, but it doesn't seem to want to reference any new documents, and I wouldn't have a clue about defining a loop. Is there such a function, and where should I put it?

Secondly, the list of classifiers reads "undefined classification" for my custom classifiers. Where can I specify what they are? I can't find anything in these macro files!

There are also a couple of stupid IE display problems I'm sure I will get around to fixing on my own.

Thank you all again for your help, its been an interesting week.
