Hi Colin,

The "t" variable controls whether a "some"/"all" search is done. (You
can tell this by looking at the HTML source of the query page).

You're right that you need to edit the search macros (in to
remove this combobox. If you search for "<select name="t">" you'll find
the bits you need to delete.

Lastly, you need to do "all" searches by default. You can do this by
setting the "t" value default to "0" in the Greenstone etc/main.cfg file:

cgiarg shortname=t argdefault=0

(This will affect all the collections in the installation).
