The documentation is wrong as there were two versions of the date function, and the release version didn't get the correct version.  I'm not sure if this has been fixed in 3.3.14 - if not, this is an easy win for the hack day!

Subject: [EP-tech] date input style

Hi All,

Currently running 3.3.10

I am trying to get a date field to display as a datepicker (rather than the multiple text boxes) as mentioned in the documentation (http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Date_field)


"long"            Render labeled text entry boxes for year, month and day.

"short"          Render a single text entry box with a Javascript date picker.

But I am getting an error when I try to add the new field into the structure...

Field 'eprint.existencedates_dateTo' has invalid parameter:        input_style => short
Is it possible to do this? Or am I misreading the doco?
