[EP-tech] How often does the Latest Additions page refresh?

I think it "reuses" the "max" property set in latest_tool_modes in cfg/latest_tool.pl,

For example:

$c->{latest_tool_modes} = {
                default => { citation => "result", max => 100}
};

If "max" is not set in that file, I think that it uses a default hard-set limit of 20; that number is set in EPrints/Plugin/Screen/Search.pm

Hi Tomasz,

Thanks, I appreciate the detailed answer.  That's what I figured but it does not always seem to be true.  There also seems to be a hard limit of how many it will add to the page.

I will investigate and see if I can figure out what's going on.

Thanks,
Mike
