[EP-tech] Re: Add validation only for certain item types?

How about something like:


if ( $eprint->get_value( ‘type’ ) eq ‘book’ )


                # do some validation

Subject: [EP-tech] Add validation only for certain item types?


Hi All,


I’m just wondering if anyone has added or know how to activate this validation only for certain item types?


From eprint_validate.pl:


$c->{validate_eprint} = sub


   my ( $eprint, $session, $for_archive ) = @_;



   my @problems = ();


   # If we don’t have creators (eg. For a book) then we

   # must have editor(s). To disable that rule, remove the

   # following block.



    if( !$eprints->is_set( “creators” ) &&

                !$= $eprints->is_set( “editors” ) )


                my $fieldname = $session->make_element( “span”, class=>”ep_problem_field:creators” );

                push @problems, $session->html_phrase (


                                                fieldname=>$fieldname );


   return( @problems );





Thanks guys!
