    Hi Prabhat,

    I am not aware of a macro to do that, but you could try using javascript. The Location object in javascript gives you access to the hostname or IP parts of a URL you're on. See

    Now, go to the "macros" folder of your Greenstone installation find the macro file (extension .dm) from where you want the hostname displayed. Into this macro file, add in the Javascript code that will refer to the Location object's hostname for displaying it. See the Greenstone tutorial at to learn a little about Greenstone's macro files and how to insert lines to get them to display on each page and how to determine which macro file to edit.

    Finally, note that if you want to use javascript code in macro (.dm) files, you may need to escape some characters like curly braces. To see how this is done, inspect a file like macros/ where javascript functions are declared and used. You will want to write any javascript functions in the same way into the macro file you choose.
