Subject [greenstone-devel] Cross-Collection Searching
I am trying to build collections which are ONLY used for cross-collection
searching. As such, they have no actual items in their collection.

When I preview the collection, the search options are limited to TEXT and
ALLFIELDS, instead of the many other options which the two collections in
this cross-collection search share.

Do I need to add an item to the cross-collection-searching collectoin with
this type of metadata to make this work?

Is anyone building collections which contain NO items... only other
collections for this type of searching?

Thank you for any help...
