Hi Alan

 

                Try:

 

use EPrints::Plugin::Screen::MyPlugin::Stuff;

sub EPrints::Plugin::Screen::MyPlugin::Stuff::method_name

{

                print ‘2’;

}

 

…in your cfg.d file.

Hi all,

I’m currently trying to override a subroutine from a plugin module, by redefining it in the local cfg.d file.

So

 

<EPRINTS_ROOT>/lib/plugins/EPrints/Plugin/Screen/MyPlugin/Stuff.pm 

has 

package EPrints::Plugin::Screen::MyPlugin::Stuff;

sub method_name { print 1;}

 

and in <EPRINTS_ROOT>/archives/<MY_ARCHIVE>/cfg/cfg.d/zzz_stuff_plugin_local.pl  I have

 

package EPrints::Plugin::Screen::MyPlugin::Stuff;

sub method_name { print 2;}

 

 

when I restart the server I get the print 1;  statement.   If I change the subroutine name in the plugin (under lib/plugins….) then restart the server I get the print 2; statement so it appears to be loading the plugin after the local version?  I thought these happened the other way round?

 

Thanks,

Alan
