[EP-tech] Re: reordering documents



Brilliant. That works. Changed the placement field and committed the documents. Didn't actually need to regenerate anything.

Thanks,

Ray.

I did a little digging.  Have a look at the get_all_documents function:

https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/perl_lib/EPrints/DataObj/EPrint.pm#L1197

It orders documents based on a 'placement' metadata field.  Your code should set this on all the documents, commit them all, then regenerate the abstract page of the eprint.

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.
