Re: [EP-tech] how to display total number publications in eprints reporsitory

Hi Satish,
I don't think there's a way to do this in a default install, although it can be done.

The home page is a static document.
The easiest way to achieve this might be to include a total via _javascript_. You would have to write a simple cgi script to pull the data out of the database.

An alternative way would be to create an EPScript method to provide the data.

I'm trying to find a couple of similar examples to point you in the right direction.
I think the 'Kultur' EPrints extension has some thing similar.
I'll send another email with some more detail later today!

And welcome to EPrints!

Subject: [EP-tech] how to display total number publications in eprints reporsitory

I have installed eprints3 and would like to  display  total number of publications
in eprints repository home page.
I appreciate if you could share the perl script to query the mysql database and 
also specify where to insert these codes?

Thank you in advance.
