Hi Stephen,

I had envisioned that this is how it would work but could not figure out the details around it.  If you wouldn't mind sending me more details on how to create a drop down list of collections to search I would really appreciate it....thanks.

Hi Jenn,

You could do a different collection for each document,
and use cross collection searching when searching them all - making sure they had identical indexes.

You could make a custom home page that had a drop down list of collections to search by editing/overiding the relevant macro files.

Let me know if you need some more details, or an example  to get started.

First I would like to thank everyone for their assistance with my
greenstone questions.

I have a collection of 6 html titles in Greenstone.  As it is set up now
when a search is conducted every title is searched, it is possible to
give users the ability to limit their search to just one title?  I was
picturing a drop down menu that lets users choose either a specific
title to search or the choice of searching all titles if they want.
