Hello Katherine,

Yes I was referring to the error messages. However, since I started
using the BibTex plugin they completely disappeared. Apparently, MGPP
and the HTML plugin are not happy together.

In the meantime, I found the cause of the other problem (search box
with strange caption appearing on About page after (re)build). I read
somewhere (forgot where) that when using MGPP the search box should not
be displayed on the About page. This is happening anyway because the cgi
arguments are wrong. The cgi args under the View Collection button, for
example, are (assuming the name of the collection is "soreme"):


The correct cgi args are:


I don't know which one is critical but you get the idea. Please note
that there is more than one way to get to the collection after a build,
so this will have to be fixed in several places. I hope this is making
sense but if you have more questions please let me know.

hi Rene

what are you referring to in your two questions?
if you are talking about the mgpp_passes error messages, this is not
normal behaviour. if you rebuild your collection, do you still get these
if so, please send me (off the list) your config file (collect.cfg) and
a couple of documents so that I can have a look at it for you.

if your questions are not referring to the mgpp stuff, please clarify
what you mean.

Katherine Don.

the error message (document text = [Text]). Don't use the default
format, make your own and don't use [Text]. Export your database in
BibTex format instead of HTML. Btw there is no need to convert accented
characters to BibTex format because they don't cause any problems during
the import/build process. Use the config file from (chapter 5.
Bibliography collection) as an example.

the same is happening to me. Has there been any progress in this matter?
I'm also using version 2.40 on Windows XP. Btw I couldn't get the user
interface to work with the Collector (only one search box, with the
following text above it: "Search for _idx_ which contain some|all of the
words") so I had to build it from the command line.
