[EP-tech] Re: Community Webinars

I don¹t know if this would be covered under Advanced Configuration but it
would be great to get a deeper understanding of the view rendering
process, i.e. what happens behind the scenes when EPrints creates a flat
page, what files it pulls from, how it interprets templates etc. From a
development point of view I find this an incredibly muddy area to get to
grips with.
