Hi all -
I'm curious if anyone has successfully implemented a zoomify-esque interface in Omeka.
While there are some definite pros to using the gmapviewer above, I'm not completely wed to the idea. Has anyone successfully implemented Djatoka or something similar? If so, would you mind sharing your thoughts?
Particularly in regards to: setting up the image-server outside of Omeka seems to (relatively) straightforward; how are you linking the image-server and Omeka?
Thanks & cheers!
Hi Ken -
here's a link: http://kiva.lib.utk.edu/omeka-bds/items/show/1294
Also, please excuse the incompleteness of the page - this is just a test for raw functionality.
Thanks for your help!
Unfortunately we can't spend much time supporting or debugging third-party tools like this viewer.
Object #<a GMapViewer> has no method 'setCopyrigh'
I suspect this is a spelling error, and the method should be
setCopyright. If you change this in your
load() function, it may help. At the very least, it may prevent this specific error from occurring.
Hi Jeremy -
thanks for the reply! My apologies for the poor communication - as useful as forums and lists are, I'm still very far from being able to effectively relay questions! I'm more interested in learning if any other Omeka community members have successfully implemented a zoomify/magnification interface than bugging the core Omeka developers for 3rd party tools support! Please excuse my oversight.
Also, thanks for pointing out the spelling error!
The Url.php file (application/helpers/Url.php) is used for building internal Omeka URLs, correct? I shouldn't need to use it to point to an external URL, should I?
You've got it.
url() helper is only used for creating links to other pages within Omeka.
For any other URL that you already know, you can just use it as-is, there's no need to pass it through any function.
