[tdwg-content] Help with using extensions in IPT

Dear Niels,

You're on the right track. You have to start by configuring different "database as a source". There is information about how to do this in the IPT User Manual here: https://code.google.com/p/gbif-providertoolkit/wiki/IPT2ManualNotes?tm=6#Source_Data

Then you need to add a mapping (selecting the extension), and then choose the source you want to map to on the next page. You may select from your multiple sources, and there is more information about this in the IPT User Manual here: https://code.google.com/p/gbif-providertoolkit/wiki/IPT2ManualNotes?tm=6#Darwin_Core_Mappings

For your information, there is an IPT mailing list ( http://lists.gbif.org/mailman/listinfo/ipt ) you can for IPT questions use in the future. Further information about  the IPT is available from the GBIF website http://www.gbif.org/ipt or from the IPT Google Code site: https://code.google.com/p/gbif-providertoolkit/

Kind regards,

>> Dear all,
>> Not sure if this is appropriate use of this list, but I don't know where else to go. I was hoping I could prevail on someone to help me find out how to use extensions in the IPT provider for data from an SQL database, without creating duplicate rows in the core file or empty rows (apart from the core ID) in the extension file(s). I think I tried everything, but I must be overlooking something.
>> I found this, http://lists.gbif.org/pipermail/ipt/2013-October/000545.html, during my googling for an answer, which I think has the solution, but I can't work out how to implement it, as my IPT installation doesn't seem to let me create a mapping to just an extension and only lets me use one data mapping source for any resource.
