Hi Jasmine,

If you want to support 50 users, you should definately use the web
library version of greenstone. The local library version uses a small
cut down webserver that pales in performance comparison to a webserver
such as apache.

Hi Richard,

Thank you very much for the help again. The images appear now ^_^. I was

wondering, is the local library strong enough to support 50 users
locally (intranet) or web library would have been a better choice. But i

read from the guide manual, it said that web library is for public
access, which is suitable to be put up on world wide web. Local library
is intended for use on standalone computers or computers that do not
already have webserver software and it allows other computer on the same

network to access the library. However, there are limited
configurability.

Thank you.

Hi Jasmine,

I've created a small collection of images, tried using the ImagePlug
plugin in this way, and it appears that the plugin creates "Screen"
metadata:

screenview.jpg

giving you the location of an additional image it creates with the
size
you specified with:

plugin ImagePlug -screenviewsize 400

The "screenviewsize" option creates a new image for each provided
image
called screenview.jpg, but you need to specifically link to this
image.
So for each image document, you need to change the relevant links in
format statements to use this new Screen metadata item provided, to
link
to the new image created.

For example:

would become

In addition, the ImagePlug creates a metadata item called
screenicon,
which contains the html code for displaying the custom image.

Using [screenicon] produces something like:


width=[ScreenWidth] height=[ScreenHeight]>

You can see this metadata item in the doc.xml for each image
document.


Hope this is helpful,


Richard.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

The PDF files in collect/collectioname/import are no longer readonly
after import and build process. (I am using command line for import and
build)

Following is the gsdlassocfile name string from doc.xml. This contains
the file name. I presume that this is happening because of I am using
UnknownPlug without any options.

<Metadata name="gsdlassocfile">Brain Storming and Creative Problem
Solving.pdf:unknown/unknown:</Metadata>

Regards,


Sharad

Do you mean the files in the import directory are no longer read-only,
or the files in the archives/index directory are no longer read-only?
The files in the import directory shouldn't change; the files in the
archives/index directory are copies and therefore won't be read-only.

I think the gsdlassocfile metadata is already doc.pdf?

Regards,

Michael

I have just returned from 5months leave, during that time our greenstone
server was installed & we upgraded to v.261.
I am now trying to add new material and can not see within the enrich
option
the value pane nor append - replace - remove.

Am not sure if this is happened as part of the upgrade or??

Would appreciate any assistance.

Libby Cass
