I'm trying to understanding how Zotero snapshots work with the Omeka Zotero Import plugin. The webmaster at my university kindly rebuilt PHP on the shared server with the Zip extension enabled, but I'm still not sure whether it's working or not. On the Omeka public page for an item I've imported from Zotero, under the "Files" field, I see a link for the .ZIP file. But when I click on it, I get a "403 - Restricted" error--e.g., http://www.indiana.edu/~liblatam/researching-brazil/omeka/items/show/3292
In the Omeka Admin view, when I click on the .ZIP link, it opens to a page with metadata for my Zotero snapshot. I see that some of this same metadata also appears in the public view, so maybe the Zip extension IS working as it should?
I guess I'm not sure whether I really understand the purpose of a Zotero snapshot in the first place. In my Zotero library, none of my snapshots actually contain images of the webpage from which I've scraped my bibliographic data. But they do contain links to full-text PDFs. . .
Thanks in advance for your help!
