Subject [greenstone-devel] Greenstone Help text
Dear peoples,

I have several metadata tags that I use and they all build proper indexes and retrieve the proper icon image for the respective indexes.

I have:
indexes document:text document:Title document:Source document:Subject document:Author document:Period
...
plugin HTMLPlug -metadata_fields Subject,Title,Author,Period
...
classify AZList -metadata Title
classify AZList -metadata Source
classify AZCompactList -metadata Subject -mingroup 1
classify AZCompactList -metadata Author -mingroup 1 -buttonname "Contributors"
classify AZCompactList -metadata Period -mingroup 1
...
collectionmeta .document:text "text"
collectionmeta .document:Title "titles"
collectionmeta .document:Source "filenames"
collectionmeta .document:Subject "subjects"
collectionmeta .document:Period "time periods"
...

Title, Source (original source file name) and Subject all have corresponding texts in the "Help" page that are sensible. The help text that is generated for "Author" and "Period" references unknown a lot.

I have looked at the macro that genereates the help texts and I am baffled ... is there a section of the documentaion I have missed ? Or other pointers/ideas ?

Thanks !

Greg Williamson
