Modifying "Date Added"


Is it possible to modify the "Date Added" in the "Browse Items" page in the Omeka Dashboard? I figured if "items" truly are the building blocks of Omeka, like WordPress "posts" are for that CMS, shouldn't users be able to edit their items' "date added" in an effort to quickly reorder their items?

Thank you!


No, an item can be added one time only, but it can be modified multiple times.

To sort them, use the plugin ItemOrder (

Thanks, Daniel. The ItemOrder plug-in was helpful.
