Hi Giuseppe,

I did preserve my pdf original filenames with some manual work:

1. I did a normal build with the librarian

2. I removed all doc.pdf files.

3. I copied all my pdf files directly into my “assoc” folder

4. I change all format statements to replace the [srclink] by my own link <a href=/gsdl/collect/gsarch/index/assoc/[dc.Identifier].pdf> (I did not use the [Source] metadata, I used my own [dc.Identifier]… Didn’t know about [Source] at that time, maybe it would work.) By the way, all my filenames where less than 8.3 characters with no space or accented characters.

5. I did a lot of testing to make sure all links where working…

 

Have fun!

Hi,
- Can I preserve the original PDF filename?
Yes - it is stored in the metadata [Source]
[I'm not sure if you can avoid the renaming to doc.pdf - you probably could with a bit of fiddling]

- Can I include the associated file in my collection even if it is not
Yes - Use UnknownPlug - just set it to recognise the file type you are after.

Hi All.
I just discovered Greenstone and it's great!
I'm triyng to build a collection of PDF and other files associated to
the PDF. I have a pair of questions:
- Can I preserve the original PDF filename?
- Can I include the associated file in my collection even if it is not
processed due the fact
   ther's no plugin for its format?

Thanks.

Giuseppe
