The Compound Solution pack module adds the ability to create compound objects using objects created with any other Islandora solution pack by enabling a generic parent-child relationships between objects. The object view of a compound object is replaced by the view of its first child object. The included "Islandora Compound Object Navigation" block provides a thumbnail navigation of an object's siblings. A "Compound" management tab allows for the addition and removal of parent and child objects for each object.

Configuration options are available through the Compound objects administrative menu (admin/islandora/compound_object)

  1. Is there any further documentation on compound objects? I'm having trouble figuring out how to make it work. I would like the thumbnail for the first image to show as the thumbnail for the parent, but I'm only getting a folder image as the thumbnail.
