Show all Metadata in one page

I have built this feature in Jan 2005 when I didn't very well how to manipolate the rendering of abstract pages. So in fact I lanch every night the modified version of the script /bin/generate_abstracts With this script I generate two file, index.html and fullmetadata.html So

1)In the file .../<archive name>/cfg/ you need to add those lines:

       #To display full metadata
       my $tjl_url = $session->make_element( "a", href=>$eprint->get_url."fullmetadata.html");
       $tjl_url->appendChild($session->make_text("Show all fields"));
       $table->appendChild( _render_row(
               $session->html_phrase( "eprint_fullmetadata" ),
               $tjl_url ) );

[line 243 - 250 in my file] In my file those lines are after the lines about Alternative locations

2)In the file .../<archive name>/cfg/ you need to add the sub 'eprint_render_full_tjl' You can read it in the ''

3)In the file .../<archive name>/cfg/phrases-en.xml add the line

  <ep:phrase ref="eprint_fullmetadata">All fields</ep:phrase>

4) in the script .../bin/generate_abstracts you must to have this subroutine: sub make_static {

       my( $session, $dataset, $eprint, $info ) = @_;
       if( $noise > 1 )
               print "Generated ".$eprint->get_value( "eprintid" )."\n";

} [last lines of the script]

5)In the file .../perl_lib/EPrints/ must to be the functions 'generate_static_full_tjl' and the function 'render_full_tjl' You could find the two function in the file

You can download the files from

The link "Show All Fields" was done for editors, not for users. We use it to control and check metadata without login Chris suggests: "This would be easier if you put the rendering function in the EPrintsRenderConfig file in render_eprint. Just make calling render_eprint have the side effect of generating the other page"
