If the index hasn't been rebuilt from the client side, it will remain the
same with on the server side. Except for checking at the index built on
the collection from GLI, the other way is to open the
GSDLHOME/collect/yourcollection/etc/collect.cfg file with an editor, and
look at a line starting with "indexes".


Also, I have entered data along with some pictures in my

I guessed you wanted to display other metadata value beside the title. If
I guessed right, the format statement of the collection needs to be
modified. It can be done from the format panel of GLI.

For example, displaying a thumbnail image linking to the original image in
front of the title will look like:
<td>[link]<img src='/gsdl/collect/image-e/index/assoc/[assocfilepath]
/[Image]' width=[ThumbWidth] height=[ThumbHeight]>
[/link]</td><td valign=middle><i>[Title]</i></td>

A better way to learn how to customize the user interface is from tutorial
exercises http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Tutorial_exercises.
