    <p>To flesh that out a bit more. There's a bit of code I wrote that
      lets you get a single property from a "compound" field. This lets
      you loop over a field like creator and set how it renders each
      item in the loop. However, this only changes how it renders on the
      summary (or citation). The solution with DOM hacking in perl is
      required to change the way it renders throughout the system. <br>
    </p>
    <p>example for the citations/eprints/summary_page.xml file;<br>
    </p>
    <pre>     &lt;epc:foreach expr="$item{dates}" iterator="date"&gt;
       &lt;div class='uos-eprints-dv'&gt;&lt;span 
class='uos-eprints-dv-label'&gt;&lt;epc:print 
expr="$date.subproperty('date_type')" /&gt; date:&lt;/span&gt; &lt;epc:print 
expr="$date.subproperty('date')" /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
     &lt;/epc:foreach&gt;

(you'd have to tweak this to loop over creators and render the subproperties how you like)
 
Add this Code to eprint_render.pl:

sub EPrints::Script::Compiled::run_subproperty
{
         my( $self, $state, $objvar, $value ) = @_;

         if( !defined $objvar-&gt;[0] )
         {
                 $self-&gt;runtime_error( "can't get a property 
{".$value-&gt;[0]."} from undefined value" );
         }
         my $ref = ref($objvar-&gt;[1]);

         if( $ref !~ m/::/ || ! $objvar-&gt;[1]-&gt;isa( 
"EPrints::MetaField::Compound" ) )
         {
                 $self-&gt;runtime_error( "can't get a subproperty from 
anything except a compound field value, when trying to get 
".$value-&gt;[0]." from a $ref" );
         }
         my $field = $objvar-&gt;[1];
         if( $field-&gt;get_property( "multiple" ) )
         {
                 $self-&gt;runtime_error( "can't get a subproperty from a 
multiple field." );
         }

         my $fc = $field-&gt;get_property( "fields_cache" );
         my $sub_field;
         my @ok = ();
         foreach my $a_sub_field ( @{$fc} )
         {
                 push @ok, $a_sub_field-&gt;{sub_name};
                 if( $a_sub_field-&gt;{sub_name} eq $value-&gt;[0] )
                 {
                         $sub_field = $a_sub_field;
                 }
         }
         if( !defined $sub_field ) {
                 $self-&gt;runtime_error( "unknown sub-field of a compound: 
".$value-&gt;[0].". OK values: ".join( ", ", @ok )."." );
         }
         $sub_field-&gt;set_property( "multiple", 0 );

         return [
                 $objvar-&gt;[0]-&gt;{ $value-&gt;[0] },
                 $sub_field ];
};</pre>

                <p>Hello all,</p>
                <p> </p>
                <p>I’m trying to alter the output on the “Creators”
                  section on the EPrints workflow however I’m not sure
                  how to go about doing this. I’ve added, to my new
                  installation, a field for Internal ID to handle a
                  lookup for the new LDAP based user management. This
                  appears at the end of the available fields in the
                  Creator View which is comprised of:</p>
                <p> </p>
                <p>Family Name</p>
                <p>Given Name</p>
                <p>Unique ID (I think that this a field added by some
                  previous system alterations)</p>
                <p>Role (Dropdown)</p>
                <p>Internal ID (New field)</p>
                <p> </p>
                <p> </p>
                <p>What I’d like to do is get rid of the Unique ID field
                  and move the Internal ID field so that it looks like:</p>
                <p> </p>
                <p>Family Name</p>
                <p>Given Name</p>
                <p>Internal ID</p>
                <p>Role</p>
                <p> </p>
                <p> </p>
                <p>Any thoughts?</p>
