Hi Heather:

You have to do the following:

I supposse you have in import folder all jpg files and a text file named
something.item (the extension MUST BE .item).

This text file can have two formats: plain or xml. XML format is what you
have done and it offers a hierarchical structure of the document, but to
process it you have to configure your plugin like this:

pluginPagedImgPlug -documenttype hierarchy

I also think that your file has some errors: you are not closing page tags.
The following lines show a file I have used in ky collection:

<Metadata name="Title">User Guide</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Author">John Fox</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Date">2005</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Title">Chapter 1</Metadata>
<Page pagenum="1" imgfile="3000002.tif" txtfile="3000002.txt"></Page>
<Page pagenum="2" imgfile="3000003.tif" txtfile="3000003.txt"></Page>
<Page pagenum="3" imgfile="3000004.tif" txtfile="3000004.txt"></Page>
<Page pagenum="4" imgfile="3000005.tif" txtfile="3000005.txt"></Page>
<Metadata name="Title">Chapter 2</Metadata>
<Page pagenum="5" imgfile="3000006.tif" txtfile="3000006.txt"></Page>
<Page pagenum="6" imgfile="3000007.tif" txtfile="3000007.txt"></Page>
<Metadata name="Title">Chapter 3</Metadata>
<Page pagenum="7" imgfile="3000008.tif" txtfile="3000008.txt"></Page>
<Page pagenum="8" imgfile="3000009.tif" txtfile="3000009.txt"></Page>

The second option is to create a "plain" .item file, that will show you
navigation bars and a "Go to page" option. So, the format of this file is
something like this:

<Title>User Guide
<Author>John Fox

To process this kind of .item file you must change plugin as follows:

pluginPagedImgPlug -documenttype paged

Hope these help you.

I have some questions after having read the documentation included in
PagedImgPlug.pm for creating an image collection with navigation features.

I'm running Greenstone 2.72 on a windows server. This collection is a simple
book consisting only of page images, no text, or OCR. I would like to add
the 'go to page' feature as well as navarrows. When I build the collection
with PagedImgPlug the page images are not ingested and so do not display at
all. When I build with the ImagePlug the images display but I can not add
navigation features (navarrow). Here is an excerpt of my xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<Metadata name="Title">Yizkor book</Metadata>
<Page pagenum="1" imgfile="001.jpg"
<Metadata name="Title">Yizkor book</Metadata> </Page>

<Metadata name="Title">Yizkor book</Metadata> <Page pagenum="2"
<Metadata name="Title">Yizkor book</Metadata> </Page> </PagedDocument>

Is the PagedImgPlug.pm required for backward and forward navigation and go
to menu, or can I use the Image plugin? If so, would someone be willing to
share an example of their PagedImgPlug.pm with me so I can compare?
