Re: [EP-tech] staff search

 This bug is also in Eprints 3.3.15. I don't mind to be solved also in
it, just if it possible that the solution can work also on 3.3.15/3.3.16
so I can patch the code.

Hi Yuri,

I think you have found a bug.  The issue is that the search checks
that the metadata_visibility for any items that might otherwise be
found is set to 'show'.  An item that is an old version of another
item will have its metadata_visibility set to 'hide'.  For staff
search metadata_visibility should probably be ignored.  I have created
a GitHub issue for this:


What are other people's opinions?  In an ideal world, I guess the
staff search should have a checkbox to say whether to show hidden items?

   the admin/staff search is useful to edit items, and the only tool for
editors to find a particular eprint by id. When searching for eprintid,
it doesn't work if the eprint is a predecessor. Actually, the search
finds only the last version of the eprints and none if I put an older
version eprintid in the eprintid field. Is there a way to change this
behaviour so our staff can search and edit also older versions?
