We are looking for someone who could add a feature to the Collection Tree plug in for us.
We have a significant list of collections (well over 100), which Collection Tree currently displays as a long list that does not fit on a single page.
We would therefore like to engage someone to add an expand/collapse function to this plugin for us.
Please let me know if you can design a solution.
Thanks so much
Do you have an example of what you want on another site? How can we contact you ?
My mail is on https://github.com/daniel-km/.
Thanks so much for your response.
We are in the process of building the site, so there is nothing really to show at the moment, and there are no other Omeka sites that we are aware of that have tried to solve this problem.
We will be migrating a large amount of items from Zotero and would like to have a menu structure on Omeka that is similar to the one we have with Zotero at the moment. There are 5 main parent folders, and then nested within them there are anywhere from 10 to 40 subfolders, and some of those subfolders will also have subfolders. This means there are over 100 collections in total, all nested under at least one parent folder. It would therefore be extremely beneficial to have a collapsible menu that would initially show only the top 5 parent folders, and when a collection was clicked on, would expand/collapse to show/hide the sub folders. Something similar to how finder works with folders on your computer.
If it would help, we could begin to enter in the collection headers within collection tree for you to play around with.
Let me know if this makes sense, if there is any other information you need, and if you’d like me to start entering in the hierarchical collection titles.
Thanks so much
I have added some of the collections as an example
The example tree navigation is nicely done.
It looks like you figured it out in the prototype.
Here is an example with just one level of hide/show.
Good luck in getting your site up.
Thanks so much for all of your help/suggestions. We did get a hand setting it up.
Bob, your menu looks good! Unfortunately we will have multiple levels of subcollections, and not all collections will have subcollections, and the items will not always be in the most specific collection.
