I'm making use of a heavily edited version of the minimalist theme (omeka_dir/themes/minimalist) across the different instances we're delivering.
I have an instance of Omeka 1.2.1 with header.php, footer.php, browse.php, and show.php, all lying along the aforementioned file path (i.e. minimalist/common/header.php; minimalist/items/show.php; etc).
Things have changed in v1.3.2. Is the omeka_dir/application/views/scripts/ file path the correct one for editing show.php? I'm thinking that /admin/themes/ is reserved for the admin webpage displays, etc., so I wouldn't want to edit those.
Thanks for your help.
Yes, the file locations have changed up a bit in Omeka 1.3.
Here's basically how it works: for each given file (header, footer, show, etc.), Omeka first looks in your current theme directory (
themes/minimalist for example) for the file. If that file can't be found in the theme directory, Omeka will instead load the "default" file from
application/views/scripts. Since the bundled Omeka themes mostly work very similarly, they mostly use the "default" files.
admin folder and all its subfolders are only used for the admin-side interface; they don't affect the public site at all.
So, the recommended way to edit a file that's not already in your theme's directory is to first copy it there from
application/views/scripts, and then edit it. (You can directly edit the
application/views/scripts files, but they will be overwritten if you upgrade Omeka).
Thanks for the reply! Confirmed my suspicions - now I can get to editing.
