Hi Renate

If you have 39 documents or less, then the DateList doesn't make the
horizontal list of dates. The dates that are displayed vertically down
the page are actually special formatting of the document items. You can
get rid of this using the -no_special_formatting option to DateList.
When you add more documents, the classifier is generating the horizontal
list of dates, and the list of docs is split up by those dates. I
suspect that your format statement is a bit wrong, and is making the
horizontal links invisible. And because you are only looking at one set
of docs, then all the other ones are not there.

I have just looked at your collect.cfg file
You have used dc.Title in the HList format statement instead of Title.
Classifier bookshelves or horizontal links only have Title metadata, not

Try changing the format statement, add another document and see how it
