Subject [greenstone-users] Custom query page

Hi,

 

I have created a custom search page for my collection, which uses mgpp.

 

To do it, I have changed _fieldqueryform_ with a static version, to control the visibility of almost all drop-down menus.

 

The resulting page is very simple, it looks like that:

 

SEARCH

Text [___________]

Title [___________]

        in [English >]

        (Clear form) (Begin search)

 

It works perfectly with Firefox and Internet Explorer. But it doesn’t work with Netscape 4.

 

Netscape doesn’t support the style="display:none" argument with form element, and it generates some other errors which makes the page unusable.

 

Is it possible to build a new form from scratch (with only the desired elements) and to control the way arguments are supplied to the server? I can’t find how to do it…

 

Thanks,

Jonathan Tremblay
