[EP-tech] Re: Not showing some fields in views from created item type.

Hi John,

Thanks, but I guess that is when you want to actually deposit a new item type.

What I mean is, once the items are deposited into the repository, if a person goes to "Browse by Year" -> Choose "Item Type" you will see items deposited under a certain year, grouped by item type. Well, there the default item types have more fields than the ones that I've created (custom ones).

You need to look at the 'workflow' configuration:

This contains the informationabout which fields are shown for which item types, and also for which users.

The documentation is here: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Workflow_Format
The easiest thing to do for a new item type may be to search for a similar item in the workflow (e.g. if you've added something that similar to a journal article, look at how the workflow for that type works and copy some of it :o).

Subject: [EP-tech] Not showing some fields in views from created item type.


I've created some custom item types within my EPrints repository,
although when  I go to browse my eprints, I see that the new defined
item types only show a few fields like authors, year, publication title
and nothing else, but "default" item types (book, conference or workshop
items, etc) do show more information like the journal name, volume
issue, etc.

In the new item type eprints, this fields are only visible if person
logs in, into EPrints.

How could I do in order to show these fields with the new item types in
the views?
