Hello,

I was just updating an old collection configured and built with a
previous version of Greenstone. I am NOT exploding my database. It
is in the ISIS plugin where formerly I had defined the entry
separator as <br>, which now gives the error and is does not build
the collection. (an error has occurred which will prevent the
collection being previewed)

I also noticed that in the latest Greenstone version, the explode
database option for an ISIS database is not working anymore. How can
we now update existing databases?
Regards
Renate
