Taxonomy (plugin for Omeka)

Taxonomy is a plugin for Omeka that allows to create vocabularies and to assign them to elements to fill.

Unlike Simple Vocab, the taxonomies contain a code and a value. This is specially important to simplify the share and to respect standards, for example for the list of countries ISO 3166-1. Even if the code is saved, it is not viewable, because the true value is always displayed automatically.

New terms can be added by the admin, and, if allowed, by the user directly in the main forms for items admin/items/edit and collections admin/collections/edit.


Install first Element Types.

Uncompress files and rename plugin folder "Taxonomy".

Then install it like any other Omeka plugin.
