Greetings! First off, I just want to say that I am completely in love with Omeka, this is what I've been waiting to find for years! I have one Omeka site up and running now, www.DerivedEnergy.com, but I plan to make at least 4 other sites in the very near future! Thank you thank you thank you to everyone that has worked so hard on the creation of this system!
So at the moment, I am trying to trick DeriverEnergy.com out with all types of cool plugins, and I'm having lots of trouble getting quite a few of them to work. First off, I am running Omeka 2.1.3, using the "Griddy" theme, and so far I AM able to run the following plugins without any trouble:
Dublin Core Extended
Library of Congress Subject Headlings
MediaRSS plugin for the Cooliris Image Viewer
WikiCite for Omeka
However I AM NOT able to run any of the following, I can't get any version of any of the plugins listed below to work. They will show up on the list on plugins, yes, but you can't activate them, often telling me I need a lower version of Omeka than the one I'm currently running.:
Add Item - Won't work, says I need a lower version of Omeka than the one I'm running
Cataloge Search - Won't work, not one version of it.
DerivitiveImages - Won't work.
HideElements - Won't work.
NeatlineTime - Won't install
PBCore Element - Set won't install
Record Relations - Won't install
Search by metadata - Won't install
*ZoomIt - not working, but installed and running, just not functional.
The Following WILL install, but cause serious problems to the site once activated.:
Commenting - This is one that I most want to use! It installs, but when activated, it breaks the site if I try and look at items.. And I get this message:
"Omeka has encountered an error. To learn how to see more detailed information about this error, see the Omeka Codex page on retrieving error messages." I did follow the provided link, but I didn't think what I found there was connected to the problems I was encountering.
Scripto - Also dying to use this, but once activated, I get this message: "Omeka has encountered an error.To learn how to see more detailed information about this error, see the Omeka Codex page on retrieving error messages."
Record Relations/UserProfiles - Neither one will install properly, but say I need to be using at least Omeka 2.0, when I am in fact running higher than that... Would very much love to use these both as well!
I truly am sorry for such a long post, thanks in advance for any and all suggestion on how to fix any of these issues, Scripto and Commenting and User Profiles are the ones I would most like help with.
Thanks very much everyone!
All the best,
