Hi

One unforeseen consequence of upgrading our repository from V.2 to V.3
is that all our EPrint URLs have changed from:

E.g	http://eprints.nottingham.ac.uk/archive/00000280/

	to

	http://eprints.nottingham.ac.uk/280/

with the result that all the external links to our eprints are now
broken.

I note that at least one EP3 repository (White Rose Eprints) accepts the
old-style URLs and redirects automatically to the correct new URL.

1. Why is our repository not doing this also?

2. How do we fix it? (Please bear in mind I have very little experience
with PERL or regular expressions)

One of the benefits of repositories that we keep banging on about to our
depositors is that the URLs are persistent. This unexpected "feature" 
is
therefore rather unfortunate to say the least.

Ta

Peter
