Hi Arthur,

Hmmm... strange problem. Do you get the Metadata Sets prompt after the
title/description prompt? Try checking the Java Console from your
browser to see if there are any exceptions showing. Also, have a look on
the server machine to see if the collection has actually been created
(in the Greenstone "collect" directory).

If nothing else works I'd recommend you try Greenstone v2.63. While I
can't think of any changes in the new version that would affect this,
further troubleshooting will be easier if you're using the latest version.

Let me know how you get on,
