[EP-tech] Re: How to change metadata visibility?

There was an issue I saw a year or two back where an item was replaced by a new version so was set to hide, but then the new version was removed again for whatever reason, but the original eprint remains ‘hidden’ from the search.  I remember flagging it somewhere, but I’m not sure if it has been resolved in a version subsequent to 3.3.10 or not.

Hi Again,


Found this: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/EPrint_Object  That explains that metadata_visibility is used for older version of an item, where you wouldn’t want it to be displayed in search results. Only the newest version you would want to be displayed. If you look at the items that have this field set to ‘no_search’ in the database, you may find they are all old versions of items.

It doesn’t look like this is something that is changed manually, at least I’ve never seen anywhere you can do that.

Hi folks,


Can someone please explain to me how to change the metadata visibility of a deposit?  I don't know how it happened but I have 10 items that seem to have this option set to ' Hide in search results'.
