Subject [greenstone-users] Collector and building
To members and support,

I have build from the Collector webinterface (The config.cfg-fil is edited in
Notepad) and I deleted the Demo collection from here AFTER I had build my own
Bibliography in Greenstone. (se the attatched config.cfg file)
The bibliography was fine and was accessable to others from outside too. Today I had to change some references for the first time after first build - not just import new ones, and I deleted
my bibliography from the collector and returned to build the collection in the
Collector again, which turned out to be impossible !!
When I get to 'Source Data' in the proces I just get a blank page - no error message except
this line in the Internet Explorer address field: "javascript:check_submit('srce');"

I use Windows XP PRO (with all the online updates from MS) with JavaRES / Greenstone v. 2.5 and KF Webserver v. 2.5

I've tried this problem before on another PC with the same program configuration (not the same windows id) and I thought that it was that PC and some error in the IE Browser but now the problem showes itself in exactly the same way on this second PC: you can build a collection and delete the demo ONLY ONE TIME and then all other changes are locked and you get the error message in the IE. It does not help to delete temporary internet files in the IE or to delete and reinstall JavaRES / Greenstone v. 2.5


Can anyone recognize this problem and do you have a solution to the problem ??

I have not build the config.cfg file in the GLI - it is a modified file from another collection so please don't come up with "just do the whole thing in the GLI". Alternatively I would happy if someone would 'take me by the hand' in GLI and deconstruct my config.cfg file - stating in what window and subwindow of GLI this and this information can be refered to. I have tried that by myself but I get lost in some of the information and multitude of options !!!
