Things are going well with Greenstone but i've hit a few snags.
My project has a search function and a browsing of the documents thru a
hierachiel structure. I tagged the docs with <Section> tags to get the
structure for the "Browse" classifier. That's working well.
I do have a few questions tho:
1/ I gave up on the InDesign docs i had and went back to the Word
files for the tagging i needed to do. The Word docs had images
embedded in them, these didn't come thru the import into Greenstone.
Is this normal? How do i make it work?
2/ I might still need to deal with PDF files, so if i tag them
(<!--<Section><Description> etc) will these be stripped out by the
PDF2HTML conversion? What about any embedded images, are they included?
3/ I've read "Customizing the Greenstone User Interface" and have come
some way in getting things the way i want them. But i would like to be
able to have this <http://www.jeremymearsdesign.com/interface2.jpg>
rather than this <http://www.jeremymearsdesign.com/interface1.jpg>. Is
it possible to have the "Search" "Browse" "Help" "Info" and "Prefs" all
on one line? If i can't do this is possible to have the "Search" and
"Browse" buttons next to one another, rather than at opposite sides of
4/ Which parts of the macros change the font size/style/etc of the
bodytext on document pages? I don't really want to create new macros,
i'm quite happy with modifying the base macros.
5/ I downloaded gsdl-2.35-export and placed the expanded contents into
the Greenstone/bin/windows folder as instructed. But when i go to
export collection, select my collection and press export, I get a
error window coming up "The collections() could not be exported to
CD-ROM. Please review output below:" But there's no output, just a
blank text field.
6/ One of my source documents is called Microbial_Indicators.doc and
i've got the cover_page set on with the cover called
Microbial_Indicators.jpg, it still doesn't come up in the Browse
documents page. Any clues?
I _think_ that's about it ;)
I'd be grateful for any help.
