Re: 'Missing Title' with swishtitle property

Thanks for the quick reply :) 
Anyway just some quick replies and questions:

> Probably because you don't have a <title>.
Well, the documents (word, OOo) I indexed did have titles, and I have
originally tried displaying the results via the 'swish.cgi' template
and it did display the 'swishtitle' property on the results so I think
the index does have this value.

Thanks, i'll try this in a moment and yes I think it would have
something to do with the logic in the code.  I did not change much
with the original 'search.cgi', '' files so

Interesting..  Using the SWISH::Filter would there be a need to
declare this filter
within the swish.conf, search.cgi files?  I am assuming SWISH::Filter
is built into the swish-e installation?

As I need to extract metadata into the index and also the content is
there any specific way I could grab the 'metadata' and the 'content'
to placed into the same index?  And reading from other discussions I
found that the filters (catdoc, pdf2text) do not actually extract the
metadata from the documents.

Had a look at the discussions and found someone referring to this:
Haven't really looked into it but it does look like some sort of
filter for OOo xml format.

> What do you mean 'front-end' for search.cgi?  The templates?
Yes, exactly: front end = templates, sorry about that :)  Anyone point
me in the right direction to get a working template with search.cgi. 
(Tried using the jswishi project but did not end up getting it working
:( )
