Thank you for the tips to install Abracadabra. I have also installed
I tried to follow the tutorial to in the read me file "building
contact-database" for PropertyTools.
a.. Create a folder called contacts.
a.. Create a "standard_object_folder" in contacts.
a.. Enter the "standard_object_folder", add a PropertyTools-Object and edit
the property-sheet. Add new properties "email", "homepage" and "phone" as
a.. Go to the Manage-Tab: Set Object-Type = Contact, Unlock "Extensible
a.. Enter your contacts folder.
a.. Create a Catalog with id=Catalog.
a.. Add some contacts with the AbracadabraObject.
At this point i was expecting that the contacts i added to auto catalog. But
nothing like that happened.
Is there something i was missing out.
What i want is this:
I have 2 Zcatalogs current_catalog and archive _catalog.
I use current_catalog to store only current articles. What I do everyday is
to create the articles (DTML Doc), clear the current_catalog and catalog the
new artcles using the article_id. My problem here is that even if I am
succeeded in making the articles to auto catalog, how do i handle the issue
of clearing the catalog before cataloging the new ones. I have about 13,000
articles in one of the sections and this is reason behind having 2
Zcatalogs. The site displays the current articles to visitors therefore i
have to streamline the number of records in the current_catalog.
Having it in mind that just few visitors want to view the old or previous
artcles, the archive_catalog is use to serve it.
I will appreciate any assistance you could render to me.

input the id for the new DTML Documents under "with ids" section on the
Find Objects tab on the ZMI to catalog new articles. But most time they
will not and they end up cataloging the entire articles which runs to

PropertyTool allows you to define Objects (e.g. Text documents) that are
catalog-aware, e.g. index themselfes, without doing any coding.
Your users would then copy such template objects into the folders where
the content is to be stored. Abracadabra helps a lot with this 'copy and
