Thanks John! You are a life saver!  This functionality will be very useful for us....

This code worked:
$c->{plugins}->{"Screen::Staff::EPrintSearch"}->{params}->{extra_fields} = [
                { meta_fields => [ "datestamp" ] },
                { meta_fields => [ "lastmod" ] },

Best regards,

Which version of EPrints are you using?
We?re on 3.3.10, and have added (to: ~/archives/ARCHIVEID/cfg/cfg.d/eprint_search_advanced.pl) the following:
$c->{plugins}->{"Screen::Staff::EPrintSearch"}->{params}->{extra_fields} = [
                { meta_fields => [ "id_number" ] },
                { meta_fields => [ "documents.license" ] },
Which allows us to admin-search these additional fields.

I think that you just need to add ?datestamp? and ?lastmod? ? not the individual parts thereof:
$c->{plugins}->{"Screen::Staff::EPrintSearch"}->{params}->{extra_fields} = [
                { meta_fields => [ "datestamp" ] },
                { meta_fields => [ "lastmod" ] },

Subject: [EP-tech] How to add search fields in admin's search items


Anyone tried to add fields in the search items page when logged in as admin?  We are trying to add datestamp_year, datestamp_month, datestamp_day? and same with lastmod and status_changed?..

I tried to edit EPrintSearch.pm and add the following fields but getting an error that they are not defined as datasets:

{ meta_fields => [ "eprint.datestamp_month" ] }, { meta_fields => [ "eprint.datestamp_day" ] }, { meta_fields => [ "eprint.datestamp_year" ] }, { meta_fields => [ "eprint.lastmod_month" ] }, { meta_fields => [ "eprint.lastmod_day" ] }, { meta_fields => [ "eprint.lastmod_year" ] },

With this added search fields, users from our research office can be able to search items deposited per month or specified dates?

Thanks guys in advanced! ?
