[EP-tech] Re: Adding a custom field in abstract (I think :))

Hi George

As Alan mentioned, adding fields to abstract pages is covered.

Adding new fields to search results is all about citation styles, and those haven't been covered.  I've added it to my list of things to do training videos on.

Hi all,

I've added a custom field in my repository (collections - and, yes, in
my context I preferred it over the shelves plugin). I've added this
field in my custom advanced search form, and now, I want this field to
be shown in the details of an eprint, once the eprint is selected after
the search is performed (the items with the url pattern:

I would also like to know how I could add it as a column in the search
results as well, but this is more optional.

In case I had to customise the abstract to achieve my goal (because this
is where I thought that this view was generated), I tried reading
cfg.d/eprint_render.pl, but couldn't understand what to do, and the wiki
(http://wiki.eprints.org/w/HOW_TO:_Add_a_New_Field) was far outdated, at
least compared to my version (3.3.14). I also tried the
./cfg/citations/eprint/summary_page.xml (which was proposed by
eprint_render.pl's comments), but I didn't seem to find where to start
from there either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks all in advance,


PS. There, there Adam, maybe that's another idea for a video? :):):-P.
