Hi,
It seems this option (-associate_ext with doc,pdf or doc|pdf)does not work. HTMLPlug decline to process other files than html.

Hi,

Every plugin (from Greenstone v2.53) has the "-associate_ext" option which allows documents with the same root filename but different extensions to be associated together as one document. I've never used this option but I think you configure one plugin (for a file format where the document always exists) to associate the other possible file formats, eg:

plugin HTMLPlug -associate_ext doc,pdf

In this case you would assign all manual metadata to the HTML file, and also remove WordPlug and PDFPlug.

There might be some extra steps required to get this working exactly as you want but this should get you started.

Regards,

Michael
