You have to write your own html tag and put it under

oops

The requested page could not be found. Please use your browsers 'back' button or the above home button to return to the Greenstone Digital Library. macro
in the yourhome.dm macrofile. For example if you have a collection
called mycoll and would like to use an image file myimage.gif to point
to this collection, this is a simple example

}

The yourhome.dm has good example on this.
Don't forget to put your macro name (yourhome.dm in this case) in the
main configuration file (main.cfg) list located under etc folder.

I have done such type of customization for my organisation -
