Re: [EP-tech] eprints 3.4 Add a new field to the eprint Abstract page

Hi Christian,

I don't think you can add extra fields like "Thesis Advisor" without being a repository admin.  If you can privately email me your username on tryme.demo.eprints-hosting.org, then I can update your account to be an admin.  Then you can use the "Manage Metadata Fields" in the Admin page -> Config. Tools menu to add a new field to the eprint data object.

Alternatively, instead of using tryme you can setup up your own test instance using  Docker [1].

How can I add the filed “Thesis Advisor” from Contributors to the Abstract Pages? We use eprints Vesion 3.4.2

As an example this page:



Thanks for your support.
