Stefan:

Thanks for the extraordinarily quick response!

I've tried this, and it does expand the text by default. However, it creates
two new problems:

1) When I click on a hierarchy button (such as Subject), the first
document in that hierarchy opens beneath the hierarchy list -- even though I
haven't yet clicked to open that document.

2) Clicking on the subsection icons (to the right of the cover photo) now
has no effect, unless the user also then clicks on the "Contract text"
button. Is it possible to set it so the text expands by default, but the
user can click on the subsection icons and jumps directly to that
subsection?

Sorry to be difficult...

Thanks and best wishes

Paul

Hi Paul,

To make the text expanded by default you could try adding the following to
your gsdl/etc/main.cfg file

cgiarg shortname=gt argdefault=2

regards,
Stefan.
