Subject Re: How do I tell forrest to use context/xdocs/**/*.xml
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2003 22:25:06 GMT
My bad, it turned out I wasn't writing those pages due to a bug in the
Python code I am developing. The test environments/tests differed, it wasn't
platform or config or forrest release. When forrest can crawl to the pages
they do show.

I am much closer now, thanks...

BTW: Any pointers on if  I can turn of PDF links/generation? I'd like to
save the cycles and not generate PDF for this transient information site.
