I have just tried this and it worked fine. When I did a search, I got
documents from all collections. The browsing lists (titles/dates etc)
will only show documents from the current collection though. We have
never implemented cross collection browsing, only cross collection
You need to make sure that exactly the same indexes are defined for each
If you think you have got everything right but it's still not working,
please send me your three config files, and one document from each

So these documents do have some text? but it just can't be displayed?

Please send me a couple of bad documents (item and image and text files)
and your collect.cfg, and I will try it here.
