Hi there - completely new to omeka and I like what I see so far. I am a drupal person most of the time, but needed (what seems like) a 'simple' timeline archive for a group of people who will take over maintenance. So omeka seems a good fit for this site. I can see possibilities for others as I mess around. :-)
So on to my snag...
I am pretty sure the problem is in either my code snippet for timeline or the fact taht MIT is hosting this instance. The directions say:
To call the CreateTimeline function, paste something similar to this into the page where you want the timeline to appear:
but, being new to it all, I was not sure WHERE the code:
\<div id="timeline" style="height:100px;"></div>
<?php createTimeline('timeline', $items ); ?>\
was to be pasted. I am sure that sounds silly if you know the answer ;-)
I tried a few things to no avail (a simplepage with the above code as the only item, entering it as html in the description area of a new item, etc). No luck.
So I found this code (in a timeline forum??):
\<?php createTimeline('timeline', get_items(array('type' => 'timeline'))); ?>\
and by adding that to a simplepage I can now see the timeline. BUT...
it will only show 10 items. ??? In all of the sample pages I saw and things I read I can find no mention of it being only 10 items... is that a limit on the MIT hosted version? Is it my snippet, or do I need to be self-serving this script? or is it something else?? :-)
