[EP-tech] Re: changing default user type

Hi Matt,

I think the magic (that is slightly more magic than yours) may be in this spell:

Subject: [EP-tech] changing default user type


Hi All,


I thought this would be a simple experiment… change the default value for a user record when it gets created from ‘user’ to ‘editor’.


Altering the local file …/archive/xxxxx/cfg/cfg.d/user_fields_default.pl file to include the line


$data->{type} =      "editor";


Doesn’t appear to work as expected…


Even altering a default (that I didn’t know existed, until I tried to figure out what was going wrong!)

Within …/perl_lib/EPrints/DataObj/User.pm, there is a sub ‘get_system_field_info’, that contains a default setting as well…


{ name=>"usertype", type=>"namedset", required=>1,

              set_name=>"user", input_style=>"medium", default_value=>"user" },


Anyone got any ideas ?
