[EP-tech] Re: reordering documents



Hi Adam,

We do use the document order unfortunately.

If we are importing an article that has, say, an XML files with the metadata in it, a PDF with the published article and a bunch of images then we  put the main PDF as the first document, the metadata as the last and the all the rest anywhere else.

We used to only ever have one PDF with an article so we just put that first. Recently, we have started getting data where we have more than one PDF: a main one and a number of secondary ones - we can identify which is which easily enough and our importer now handles things correctly. But we have data already in Eprints which has the documents in the "wrong" order and so we want to reorder them.

All else failing we can probably delete and re-import them but I was trying to find a way to do the re-ordering in place.

Hope that all makes sense.

Cheers,

Ray.

Hi Ray

        I don't believe there's any implied semantics with document ordering (though I may be wrong).  What are you aiming to accomplish by reordering them?
