Berlin Theme & Social Networking Plugin

I just installed Omeka and am trying to use the Berlin theme, but noticed that the social networking plugin doesn't seem to work. I have it installed, and when I switch to a different theme, it works properly, just not in Berlin. I really like the look of the Berlin theme - does anyone know how I might be able to resolve this issue? Thanks!

That does happen sometimes with plugins and themes sometimes conflicting.

Can you provide some more information?

What Omeka version are you running?
What version of the Social Bookmarking plugin are you using?
What browser were you using to look at your site in Berlin?


I'm running Omeka 1.1 and the Social Bookmarking version 1.0.

I see that there's a note saying "Notice: This version of the 'Social Bookmarking' plugin has only been tested up to Omeka 0.10. You are using version Omeka 1.1." But what confuses me is why it works when I switch to a different theme, just not in Berlin.

I've checked it on Firefox and Safari on a mac and on Firefox on a pc running windows.

Any advice you have would be appreciated!


Looks like this is a mistake on our part. The Berlin theme, specifically in its items/show.php template, is missing a standard plugin hook that's present in all our other themes. I apologize for this oversight. I'll fix this and release a new version of the theme soon.

In the meantime, you can add the hook yourself by editing berlin/items/show.php, and adding the following right before the closing </div> near the bottom of the page:

<?php echo plugin_append_to_items_show(); ?>

This will allow the Social Bookmarking plugin, and any plugin, to append code to the bottom of the items/show page.

I hope this helps, and I apologize again for the oversight.


Adding the code served the problem. Thanks so much for your help!

Glad this worked, Joan!
