Subject [greenstone-users] modifying Greenstone interface
Hello all,

We have been using Greenstone for a digitization project at our library
which incorporates several distinct collections. We would now like to
make some basic changes to the standard Greenstone interface but despite
my efforts I'm having difficulties in this respect. It seems that
regardless of which macro files I modify, no changes are reflected in
the collections OR in the few cases I have been able to affect a change,
it is not consistent between collections.

Here's what we'd like to do:

a) remove the 'Help' button from the navigation menus on each of our
- I have tried modifying the nav_css file (no success)

b) remove the 'How to find information in the...' line
- tried modifying the '


The requested page could not be found. Please use your browsers 'back' button or the above home button to return to the Greenstone Digital Library.' section of the about.dm (no success)

c) modify existing collection descriptions which appear on the main page
for each collection
- tried modifying the collect.cfg file (no success)

I'm stumped and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
