Subject [greenstone-users] Re: greenstone-users Digest, Vol 24, Issue 8
First two done, to do number 11 I need your help. So far I've taken
about 20 minutes. I'm going on to create the flipbooks_home.php4 and
folders_home.php4. I did not change the link to go to
libraries_home.php4 on the navigation bar.

Cheers,
John Rowe
