Omeka has a document viewer plugin once again! Some of you may remember our iPaper viewer that worked with version 0.9. After a few upgrades in our system and some changes in iPaper’s API, we decided to build a new plugin.
DocsViewer embeds a Google document viewer into item/show pages in both the public and administrative interfaces. The viewer reads PDF documents, PowerPoint presentations, TIFF files, and most Microsoft Word documents.
In addition to DocsViewer, we are also releasing a Page Caching plugin that will improve the load time of an Omeka site by offering different types of caching that is configurable in the plugin settings.
Try these plugins and let us know what you think.
