Subject [greenstone-users] using index.txt and PDFPlug together
Hi Greenstone-users list,

I am having some slight problems. I am building a collection with some
pdfs. I didn't like the metadata created by the PDFPlug (like title,
author, and I wanted to add a few other fields), so I added an index.txt
and called the IndexPlug plugin from the collect.cfg. The problem now is
that the index.txt seems to over-write all the metadata, including the
full-text (document:text). I would like to be able to search full-text
in addition to adding my own metadata.

OS: linux (2.4.20-30.9smp #1 SMP i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux)
GSDL version: 2.60
I use the command-line, not the GLI

URL of the test collections:
With full-text: see the collection called "pdf" (search term "interface")
With my added metadata: see the collection called "pdfs_f"

Thank you!
