Subject [greenstone-users] How do I format AZCompact list with -mingroup 1?
Hi. This has got me stumped, so I hope there's a simple answer:

I have several classifiers using -mingroup 1 to show only the
author/topic name. But what I'd like to do is replace the icon
link with a text link using the text of the item. But I can't
see how the "heading only" list is formatted.

Here's a snip from the config file (cribbed from cltbib-e):

classify AZList -metadata Title
classify AZCompactList -metadata Creator -sort Title
-mingroup 1 -buttonname Creator
classify AZCompactList -metadata Department -sort Title
-mingroup 1 -buttonname Topic

format VList "<td valign=top>[link][icon][/link]</td>
<td valign=top><b>[Title]</b> - <i>{Or}{[Creator],[Editor]}</i>
{If}{[Year], - [Month] [Year]}</td>"

format CL2VList "<td valign=top>[link][icon][/link]</td>
<td valign=top>{If}{[numleafdocs],<b>[Title]</b>,
<b>[Author]</b> ([Creator]) -- <i>[Title]</i>}
{If}{[Year], - [Month] [Year]}</td>"

What I'd like is something like:

format xxxxVList "<td valign=top>[link]<td

but I don't want to format the list of titles, only the list of
headings. What do I need for "xxxxVList"? Or is this format only
defined in a macro?

Also, I'd like the headings list to show the number of documents
attached to that heading. Is that possible?
