Subject [greenstone-users] RV: Invisible index!!!
Hi list,

is it possible to create and index but not to show it in search options?

I want to modify the interface and in documenttext I want to create a format
statement that run a query with a metadata value using a particular index.

Let me explain:

I have books in PDF format. Each chapter is a pdf file, so you have many
files that really means only one book. In Greenstone, each pdf will be a
different document, so I have to find a way to let the user access the whole
book. I?m doing the following:

each pdf will have a metadata like ISBN that will have the value of the
book. Then when you search in Greenstone and access i.e. chapter 3, I want
to create a format statement that runs a query in ISBN index using ISBN
metadata value. but I don?t want to show ISBN index in the drop down search
