Report a Bug

Bugs are errors in the system. If you find a bug in your Omeka Classic installation, please let us know.

Before Reporting a Bug

Always check to see if it has already been reported. You can search the Forum and our Github repositories to see if the bug you have found has been identified. Feel free to respond to an existing issue to let us know that you are experiencing the same thing.

Who Posts Bugs and Where

Users of varying technical skill will report bugs in different places.

We encourage novice users to post bugs to the Omeka Classic Forum if they think something is broken, but don't know why. If you believe it is an issue with a certain plugin or theme, use the Forum categories for those.

Developers and other users who have an interest in programming can report bugs directly as issues on GitHub. Issues can be with the core software, or with a plugin or theme. Some plugins and themes are not maintained by the Omeka team, so use the plugins directory and themes directory to find the correct Github repository to report the issue.

If you are unsure whether it is code within a plugin/theme or an interaction best solved with the core code itself, bring it to our attention in the Forum first and we can direct you. Be careful not to post Classic issues in the S forum or repository, and vice versa.

If you would like to suggest a solution in code along with your bug report, please use Github to do so.
