Sorry about my previous top-post... didn't realize I did that.
My live catalog was based on the old foundation, and now I'm
redeveloping the site and based it on the "standard" catalog. The
standard catalog has the line:
DatabaseDefault HIDE_AUTO_FILES 1
So, I guess if I didn't do this by accident a couple days ago, it
probably would have happened when I went live anyway. So, I guess I'm
glad it happened now.
I guess I'll be going through that catalog.cfg line-by-line to make
sure I don't have anything else that will cause me a headache. At
first glance everything looks fine, but I thought "HIDE_AUTO_FILES"
seemed harmless enough. :-)
Has anyone converted from a "foundation-based" to a "standard-based"
catalog and have any tips for me?
