Hi Ben,

According to the module (in perllib/classify), the correct format for the dates is yyyymmdd (ie. the second variant you tried).

I think the problem is that DateList assumes that the date metadata is stored in the Date element (not dc.Date) -- and there is no option to change this. I'll add this option to my "to do" list, but for now you can either:

- Assign your date metadata to the Date element (you might have to create this element in the Metadata Set Editor), instead of dc.Date.
- Edit the file, and change the 'Date' on line 101 to 'dc.Date'.

Hope this helps.

I'm having trouble getting the DateList Classifier to work using the Librarian interface.
I've created a collection using HTMLPlug, and have given each .html file date metadata in the form of dc.Date.
I can successfully create a searchable index using dc.Date metadata, however cannot create a Date List classifier.
I have tried the following date formats: 1900, 19000101, 1900-01-01
Can anyone help?
