Thanks for your kind reply.

Sorry to confuse you (and others). I wanted to say that

"I don't want all the 200 documents appear in a single page while browsing by title or author”


now I used the GenericList plugin. But then in my title classifier I’m getting documents only starting with A. there’s no link to documents with other letters.

Plz see my collect.cfg file.

I'm a bit confused about what you want here -- you seem to be asking for

contradictory things!


If you want all 200 documents to appear in a single page, you can use

AZCompactList's "-mincompact" option to set the minimum number of

documents to be displayed per page (some number larger than 200).


If you want the documents to be split into groups by their first letter,

you can use the new GenericList classifier:

Unzip this into your Greenstone "perllib\classify" folder, and delete

the C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application

Data\Greenstone\GLI\classifiers.dat file if you're using the GLI. Then,

you can use the classifier like:


classify GenericList -metadata dc.Title -hlistgrouptype perletter

You can use "[sibling:dc.Creator]" to display all the dc.Creator values.


for a list of Greenstone's formatting options).
