Subject RE: Forrest crashes without an xdoc/index.xml file
Date Sun, 23 Jan 2005 23:10:06 GMT
Dave --

I'm not 100% sure what you're asking.  In fresh-site there a reference to
"samples/" & "subdir/" in site.xml.  However, I'm having problems in the
xdoc root directory where I'm forced to rename the index.xml file, not any
of the sub-directories.

Regarding the "cli.xconf" file, I found a copy in both "site-author\conf"
and "webapp\WEB-INF", but looking at the file, I'm at a lost to understand
how to override it.  Can you help me out a little?

PS. On Ross's advice, I open this as an bug: FOR-423.

Are there any references (in links, site.xml or tabs.xml) to "foldername/"?
cocoon link crawler will use index.html as the default index file for that
directory.  That is configured (IIRC) in cli.xconf, which is overridable by
