Re: Ttoolkit - displaying additional metanames problem

From: Peter Karman <karman(at)>

You don't actually display the content of MetaNames. You display the 
content of Properties. MetaNames are what you can search on:


where foo is a MetaName. But to display the contents of foo, you must 
also list foo as a PropertyName so that the contents of the foo tag are 
stored in the swish index.

Check out the PropertyName info in the Config docs.


PS: swish-e gurus: please correct me if I'm wrong or misunderstanding 
the question.
