Views by Person

To allow users to include a list of their documents in home pages, and to genrate a view based on the author edit the file :

vi /var/lib/eprints3/archives/yourarchivename/cfg/cfg.d/views.pl

Add in the lines :


 { 
 id=>"people", 
 allow_null=>0, 
 fields=>"creators_name/editors_name", 
 order=>"title",  
 include=>1 
 },

Don't forget the comma after the previous entry. This will produce out to the views section based on the persons name. It will give you text, html, and include files. I use the include file for displaying items on home pages.

For instance a link inside a users home page:

<?php
include ("http://eprints.adastral.ucl.ac.uk/view/people/{Family},_{Given Name}.include")
?>

Will give them a list of all their documents in the eprints repository, and the link :

http://eprints.adastral.ucl.ac.uk/view/people/

Will list all people that have published articles into eprints.
