Congratulations for Omeka. We use plone for the site wwww.koluel.org here in Patagonia Argentina
but we are evaluate use Omeka .
My project is about the History of Patagonia Austral in Argentina. Photos, newspapers, oral history, documents, (1910 - 1950)
Plone is an excelent CMS but we need a prroduct that can build fast the repository.
With Plone all must will be work beforevery hard.
Now we put a version of Omeka here with 2 or 3 elements..
I have any questions...
1. How to reduce the space between the description of each field?
2. How change the sentence
Tecnología de Omeka.
3. The plugins for a maps, when you think that I could use in the version 2.0.1?
4. How to reduce the size of the letters?
5. How to reduce the size of the site?
6. It is possible add the tesaurus of Unesco online for add subjects and etiquets?
7. Is there workshop of Omeka in your University.. I see that in these conference yours talk about Omeka
maybe yours give workshops
Thanks very much congratulations for Omeka again and sorry for my english
That's quite the number of questions for one post!
Questions 1, 4, and 5 are all CSS styling issues. You can change the spacing and font sizes by editing the CSS for your theme.
2: The "Tecnología de Omeka" text is part of the footer. You'll find the code for the footer in your theme at common/footer.php. (This particular text is the Spanish translation of the "Proudly powered by Omeka" line.)
3: I think you're talking about the Geolocation plugin. A 2.0-compatible version of the plugin is in the works, but I can't give you a specific date right now.
6: Are you talking about this as an alternative to plugins like LC Suggest? I think it would be possible to make a similar plugin for the UNESCO thesaurus, but I don't believe one currently exists.
Most of the tasks of changing appearance happen by customizing your theme, either in the CSS files or by modifying the theme files like
items/show.php You can find the appropriate theme file by following the patterns in the URL. The default theme files, shared by all themes, are in
You can add new metadata fields from Unesco by manually adding them to an Item Type.
The Geolocation plugin is currently being worked on, but I don't have a solid idea of when it will be ready.
There are many people with knowledge of Omeka who can give workshops, but I don't know of anyone in Argentina. You might ask nearby universities, libraries, or archives if they know of anyone.
Here in Argentina nobody use Omeka,, The institutions use Greenstone, cms, dspace...
We are the first in use Omeka...
Also I move my site in Plone to
and put my new domain with omeka
Also if I will go to USA in these year I take any workshop here http://thatcamp.org/es/
you write these
"Most of the tasks of changing appearance happen by customizing your theme, either in the CSS files or by modifying the theme files like items/show.php You can find the appropriate theme file by following the patterns in the URL. The default theme files, shared by all themes, are in application/views/scripts"
now all is + - ok but I have a problem ...with the title
ANTIGUA FOTO AVDA......
I don't find the file for change of H1 to H4
I see these files
root@yaguarete:/var/www# find -name show.php
I don't luck.. maybe can said me
the link is here
For the items/show pages, you'll want to looks in the /items/show.php file for your theme. It looks like the "Seasons" theme, so look in themes/seasons/items/show.php
Here my site with the version omeka 2.0.2 and Exhibit builder.
Congratulations to team of omeka...for the development and for the answer always to people in the forums.
