Hi Jasmine,

Most of what ou ask is i n the first part of the developers guide, and in the demonstration collections

Take a look at the image collection (in the demonstration collections download) - I think is does everything you seem to be asking.

I think you need to change the contents of 'DocumentText' in the 'format' section of your collection configuration

In 'format' again you will need to use the [srclink] directives. usually [srclink][dc.Title][/srclink]
 
    3) Is it possible to change the font type of the metadata details that were being display on the result screen (web-page)? How do I do it?
You can include inline css style directives
eg <span style="font-family:Arial,Verdana,san-serif;"> [your text here]</span>

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Stephen

PS Greenstone can take up a lot of time...it does a lot more than iPhoto or filckr ( it has different goals)
if you are new to it, it might be risky using it for a major project.

Hi, I'm Jasmine (student) and currently working on my Major Project which is to produce a digital image library. I am glad to found this Greenstone software that would assist me in building a digital library effectively. I am new to this software, hence, I encounter some situation that is hard for me to solve. Following is a list of question:





1) I would like the image to appear together with the metadata details below it, after the user had clicked on the thumbnail that would direct them to that page (Image & Metadata details of it). However, the image did not appear, only the metadata details did. How do I make the image appear?
 
2) For the requirements of my project, I need to have an option shown to allow the user to choose a higher resolution image in TIFF format for publishing purpose. This option will be shown on the page of respective images and metadata details. How do I create this feature?
 
3) Is it possible to change the font type of the metadata details that were being display on the result screen (web-page)? How do I do it?
 
Thank you, I will be looking forward to your reply.
