I'm a librarian at Portsmouth Public Library in NH, and I and several colleagues are working on getting some historic housing information online, as the first of several exhibits we have planned. I've researched a few different platforms, and really love Omeka!
We have a Linux server with Omeka installed, and I'm just starting to learn how to customize it to fit our needs. One things that we really feel is essential to our project is the ability to have the public leave comments that can be shared with others. One advantage of WordPress is that this is an included functionality, but I'm hoping there's a way to make it work with Omeka.
I know we can add a feedback form that sends us an email, and then go in and add the comments to each item in a special field that we create, but if there is an automated way to do this (or if someone more scripting-savvy than me can create one!!), that would be fantastic.
