[EP-tech] Adding a custom field in abstract (I think :))

Hi all,

I've added a custom field in my repository (collections - and, yes, in 
my context I preferred it over the shelves plugin). I've added this 
field in my custom advanced search form, and now, I want this field to 
be shown in the details of an eprint, once the eprint is selected after 
the search is performed (the items with the url pattern: 
http://yourrepodomain/[0-9]+).

I would also like to know how I could add it as a column in the search 
results as well, but this is more optional.

In case I had to customise the abstract to achieve my goal (because this 
is where I thought that this view was generated), I tried reading 
cfg.d/eprint_render.pl, but couldn't understand what to do, and the wiki 
(http://wiki.eprints.org/w/HOW_TO:_Add_a_New_Field) was far outdated, at 
least compared to my version (3.3.14). I also tried the 
./cfg/citations/eprint/summary_page.xml (which was proposed by 
eprint_render.pl's comments), but I didn't seem to find where to start 
from there either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks all in advance,

George.

PS. There, there Adam, maybe that's another idea for a video? :):):-P.
