Re: [EP-tech] Display box view like Divivions


Subjects and Divisions boxes are subject type fields that include a part of the subject tree.  Therefore you would need to add a new sub-tree to your subject tree to include all your course options.  (You can use the Edit Subject page [1] linked from the Admin page to do this). Then you would need to add some configuration like the following to your archive's cfg/cfg.d/eprint_fields.pl file:

    name => 'course',
    type => 'subject',
    top => 'courses',
    browse_link => 'courses',

I have made some assumptions here:

1. That your would only ever need to store one course value against and eprint record.  If you need more you may need to add the line:

multiple => 1,

to the above configuration.

2. That the subject ID for the top of your courses sub-tree is 'courses'.

3. That you intend to create a browse view for courses like by default you will have for subjects and divisions.

Once you have added this configuration you will need to run the following command (substituting EPRINTS_PATH and ARCHIVE_ID) as appropriate:

EPRINTS_PATH/bin/epadmin update ARCHIVE_ID

Next you will need to add this field to your workflow. This will need a line like the following at the point you want this to appear in your workflow:

<component><field ref="course" /></component>

You may at this point also want to add some phrases.  You can does this via the Phrase Editor page link from the Admin page or edit a phrases file from the command line.  The minimum phrases you will need are eprint_fieldname_course and eprint_fieldhelp_course.

Once you have done all the is you will need to test the configuration is valid an reload the web server:

EPRINTS_PATH/bin/epadmin test
apachectl graceful

I have been working on improving the documentation pages about different types of metadata field as listed at https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Category:EPrints_Metadata_Fields.  I have not got to updating the subject field [2] yet but hope to do so today or later this week.  However, I hope to add some useful configuration examples to help when it comes to questions like yours here.

I just added a field for a course with a lot of data. How can I make the view in the Details section so that it displays the course data like the divisions view or like Subject ?


Thank you.
