Display data for unconventional repository

I have an SVN repo that does not follow traditional conventions for organization. That is to say, I have a repo with lots of directories/sub-directories with various text and binary files. This is mostly used for storing and maintaing various scrtipts and configuration files. How can I configure teh FE repo settings to show all the directories/sub-directories (along with their commit history) if the structure does not meet conventions (ie: trunk, branches, tags)? When I try and browse the repo, nothing is displayed.

I guess I had the configuation all wrong. I was putting the URL in SVN URL and the path in Path. Makes sense, but FishEye was expecting the trunk, tag, branch folders after the Path. I put the full URL in SVN URL (svn://fqdn/path) and all is well now. :)

I know you have solved your query, but you might still need to do more to get the most out of Fisheye.

If you have a non standard directory structure for your Branches and Tags but want Fisheye to understand it, i.e. so it recognises what is a branch and what is tag, as opposed to a standard directory, you need to tell it what your structure is by means of regexes:

see the docs for details:

Thanks Martin. For my case, there are no branches or tags as the repo is not used for writing code in the traditional sense.
