Hi Julian,

It appears that each collection image displayed has a hard coded image tag:

lines 283 and 284 of src/recpt/pageaction.cpp appear to output the html for the collection images.
283:            collectionname
284:              = "<img width=\"150\" src=\"" + iconurl + "\" alt=\"" + alt + "\">";

You could change the width of the image or add a height attribute if you wish, then recompile the receptionist code.

Hope this helps,

Let me try again with this very direct question - how do I control the size of the image on the home page (under 'select collection')?  I can control images further in through the image plug, but am not sure how to control the size on the home page (not the 'about' page - that's ok).
Oh, and if anyone is vitally interested in the Greenstone macros in Italian, I am working through them - slowly.  We are down from 90 something to I think 70 something, maybe fewer.

Hi all,

im trying to format the AZCompactList. I want that metadata text displays as a link, that works fine ! But when I opened the bookshelf there is some "dummy" text (like "Document Outline" or "..."_)_ from [ex.Title] which i don't want to display. If I remove [ex.Title], it is OK, but the text near bookshelf disappears.

Please  could someone  help  me how to hide the "dummy" text, without loosing the text near bookshelf?

You can see the the problem on

This is my FORMAT STRING :

<td valign="top">[link][ex.srclink][icon]{Or}{[dls.Title],[ex.Title][/link], [dc.Title],Untitled}{If}{[numleafdocs], ([numleafdocs])}<a href=_httpprefix_/collect/[collection]/index/assoc/[archivedir]/doc.pdf target="_blank"/>[ex.srcicon]{If}{[dc.Title],[dc.Title]}{Or}{[ex.thumbicon]}</td>
