[EP-tech] Re: Removing fields...

Hi Andrew,
The simple option is to  go through and remove the field from the old items (or 'SQL  Update' them into oblivion for that type).

The rendering is probably coming from the summary_page.xml citation type.
There is a section with a comment that says
     The below block loops over a list of field names taken from eprint_render.pl
     Edit the list of metadata to show in the summary page table in eprint_render.pl

So the alternative is to remove the field from the eprint_render.pl list, then add it back into the summary_page.xml specifically for the types where it does still apply.
I haven't tested that specific option recently, but it ought to be something along those lines.

Okay, so I?ve removed a field for a specific EPrint type from the edit workflow. This works fine, the field no longer shows. However, when viewing a record, in the Details tab under Other defined fields, the field still appears on older records. How can I stop this?
