Hi Ben,
1) Is it possible to shorten the URL that greenstone produces eg
http://greenstone/cgi-bin/library.exe?e=p-000-00---0bookcoll--00-0-0-0pr
ompt-10---4------0-1l--1-en-50---20-about---00001-001-1-0utfZz-8-0&a=d&c
l=CL1

...to something like
http://greenstone/cgi-bin/library.exe?c=bookcoll&a=d&cl=CL1 ?
I don't understand the purpose of e=....

The purpose of the e variable is to store the user's preferences and settings from page to page. It's ugly, I know!
2) I need to make a change to the Librarian Interface under the Create
tab on the Import page.
Specifically, I need to add the value 'idnumber' as option for the
OIDtype drop down list.
Unfortunately, the import.pl and buildcol.pl options are still semi-hard-wired into the Librarian Interface (the plugin and classifier options are done dynamically). This is something that is on our list to do.

Until then, you can do this by editing the import.xml file in the classes/xml folder, and add your "idnumber" option to the OIDtype list. You should then delete the config.xml file in the gli folder (not the one in the classes folder), and then restart the GLI.

Hope this works,

Michael
