[EP-tech] Altering Creator Browse

Hello all!


So, I’m progressing with my migration – one of the things I want to do, which is something we get with our current repository, is to generate the creator browse based on a users ID number, rather than their name; so instead of eprints.lincoln.ac.uk/creator/john+smith or what have you, we get …/creator/1234. At present the name method is generating multiple pages for users who publish under different names, such as John Smith or J. Smith or John D. Smith. Also we may have different John Smith’s in our system and will want to identify them as such. So, the creator browse needs to be generated based on the user table.


Any ideas on how to go about doing this? The current method is not portable as the code will not work with the current version of EPrints, and I want to explore some non intrusive (plugin) ways of doing it rather than altering core functions.
