Hi Linda

This sounds a bit like Greenstone isn't presenting the collection as an
MGPP collection. When you enter the collection (either from the GLI or
from the library home page), what arguments are being passed to the
library program?

For mgpp collections, the args should be similar to

(ct=1 is for mgpp colls, qto=3 means both form and plain searching, qt
signals which type is in use, 1=form, 0=plain)

If you only have the first 3 args, then you will get the
Search for _idx_ for some/all of the words
as Greenstone then thinks that its an MG collection.

Both the library program and GLI should set up these args properly.
If you are manually creating urls, then add these args in.
If they are being created automatically, but wrongly, please let me know
how you enter your collection and I'll have a look at why its not
working properly.
