Hello Daniel

Do you want to use two interfaces in two languages? or two interfaces different in some other way?

If you want to have a multilingual site you create multiple language versions of macros like this:

_sampletext_ [l=en] { Sample text }
_sampletext_ [l=fr] { Texte témoin en français }

If you want to have different versions of an interface, another way of specifying different versions of macros is something like this:

_sampletext_ [v=1] { Sample text version 1 }
_sampletext_ [v=2] { Sample text version 2 }

In the latest greenstone, you can modify the interface macros by modifying a file you create in your collection specific macro directory called <greenstone install dir>collect<your collection dir>


and of your_collection

for more information about modifying greenstones interface.

There is a lot of other relevant information on the wiki also, such as

Good luck,

Hello all,


I am currently making adjustments to greenstone for the Victoria University of Wellington and want to apply two interfaces to one Greenstone Collection.


I am currently using Greenstone 2 and would like to know which macros/files need to be adjusted.


Does anybody have any ideas???  If someone could please point me into the correct direction that would be a big help.  In the meantime I will continue to poke around.


Kindest Regards,


Daniel Matthews
