DESCRIPTION

When HTML pages are served by EPrints they are processed through a template written in XML. Most repositories will have two templates - default.xml for HTTP and secure.xml for HTTPS.

Templates are parsed at server start-up and any included phrases are replaced at that point. Because templates persist over the lifetime of a server you do not typically perform any logic within the template itself, instead use a pin generated via Custom Pins.

The page content is added to the template via <epc:pins>.

Custom Pins

In cfg.d/dynamic_template.pl:

 $c->{dynamic_template}->{function} = sub {
   my( $repo, $parts ) = @_;
 
   $parts->{mypin} = $repo->xml->create_text_node( "Hello, World!" );
 };
 

In archives/[archiveid]/cfg/templates/default.xml (copy from lib/templates/default.xml if not already exists):

 <epc:pin ref="mypin" />
 

Or, for just the text content of a pin:

 <epc:pin ref="mypin" textonly="yes" />

Historically this was the login/logout links plus key_tools but since 3.3 login/logout are Screen plugins as well.
