Salaam Chandana,

one cheap way to do this is find the names of the image files and replace
them with your images...

another is to use an iFrame into a site

<iframe src="http://your_server_here/cgi-bin/library.exe" class="wrapper"
align="top" frameborder="0" scrolling="auto" width="100%" height=100%>
</iframe>

mine is coming along slowly like that using a joomla site under relatively
constant revision
http://207.42.165.236/ and must say it is ugly.

http://greenstone.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Customizing_collections
http://greenstone.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/How_to_format_the_output_of_your_collection

are both good resources

the customization aspects of greenstone are learning curved and hardly
intuitive - I'm spending the next few weeks it appears doing exactly that,
customization. If anyone else has some decent suggestions towards creating
a better frame for this let me know. If anyone would like to collaborate on
some techniques to do this I'm all ears.... working with an existing CMS
would add some valuable technologies, however my first exposure has been
mixed.. (of course what would you expect from mixing softwares?).

Starting a project in eclipse would be a logical step for getting all of
this in the GLI, however that may not be the best place to do all the
formatting, and the user list prolly ain't the place to rap on it either...

So there're a couple of thoughts, on to join the dev list to hear and learn
more.
Adios,
Anson
