Re: [EP-tech] Question concerning Cover Sheets

Hi Verena,

The coversheets plugin does not modify the original PDF it creates a copy.  So if you enable the plugin make sure you have plenty of free space as the copies will significantly add to your disk usage.  EPrints uses some clever rewriting so that the URL for the PDF will not change but the user will get the coversheeted rather than uncoversheeted version.

Hi all,


We’re thinking about installing the Cover Sheets plugin, but are not quite sure what its effect is. Does activating the plugin result in a change of the stored pdf files or is the cover sheet only added during download, while the original pdf file remains unchanged?


Thanks for your help.


Best wishes,
