[EP-tech] Re: Adding link to database of experts -- vague instructions

 I did not see a reply to this query - and nothing in the archive -  is this being dealt with off list?

We have the Aquatic Commons Repository, http://aquaticcommons.org/ and we have an Ocean Expert database, http://www.oceanexpert.net/  and would love to implement seamless links.

Are the instructions below correct?  Our present version is EPrints 3.2.9 (Apple Strudel)

thanks  Pauline Simpson

Subject: [EP-tech] Adding link to database of experts -- vague instructions


I am using EPrints 3.2.8 (Apple Crumble).

I have been handed some vague, disjointed instructions that would supposedly add 

a link from an item's summary record page to and "expert database".  Trouble is, 

I am finding the instructions a bit hard to interpret.

The instructions essentially say this.

Do something with the related_url section in the file /usr/share/archives/archiveID/cfg/cfg.d/eprint_fields.pl. 


Rename the author to Expert's profile in the file /usr/share/archives/archiveID/cfg/lang/en/phrases/local.xml.  

Put this line into that file:

"<epp:phrase id="eprint_fieldopt_related_url_type_author">Expert's 

Profile</epp:phrase>" (this file does not exist, should I create it?)

Apparently, the above "overwrites the default (which is just Author)."

Make sure they are rendered by editing the file /usr/share/eprints3/archives/archiveID/cfg/citations/eprint/summary.xml.  

Add the following to that file:


  <epc:if test="is_set(related_url)">

      <p style="text-align: center; margin: 1em auto 0em auto"><epc:print 

expr="related_url" /></p>


 <epc:if test="is_set(doi)">


    <li>  <epc:print expr="doi" /></li>



Do these instructions make sense?
