Subject Getting "Identifier" metadata in a VList
Hi Stefan,

I have a formatstring-language question:

If I am writing a formatstring for a classifier (or search result)
VList, then how do I find the "Identifier" metadata of each document?

Each document's "Identifier" metadata is generated at build time, and
can be accessed when the document is displayed by putting [Identifier]
in the formatstring for DocumentText. But this doesn't work in a
classifier list, presumably because "Identifier" is a special
(i.e. automatically-generated) field.

I ask because I want to create a link to a document that adds a few
extra CGI parameters, which means I can't just use the [link] and
[/link] metadata.


Another question: is it possible to get the "result number" of an
entry in the result list? I'm sure there must be a macro or something
for this.
