Hi Richard,

Well, the easiest way to accomplish this is to not use the greenstone navigation bar at all, and just make your own.

in theres some code:

# The following is useful if collection specific macro.  Override
# to be empty if you don't want the navigation bar to
# appear in the standard place, and then specify SearchSubjectsFromDates elsewhere
# in a collection specific macro file(s) to be where you do want it.
<div class="navbar">
<p class="navbar">

So it appears that you need to add something like


to your in the Global package to remove it.

To add your own one, you might put your desired macros and html in that macro.

<!-- My navigation bar macros / html  -->

I'd like to change the navigation bar so that i add a "static link" (not generated by a classifier: sort of like the way the 'Search' button is) and set this link to have a drop down menu (produced by some javascript).
From this example ( ) it looks like i need to change the GSDL Error macro or better still the SearchSubjectsFromDates macro.
My dilema is this:
Currently the SearchSubjectsFromDates is defined as SearchSubjectsFromDates {} in
So i'm wondering, is the navigation bar defined else where since there isn't much in How do i go about adding the "static" button link?
Thanks, hope someone can help.
