    and then locale specific versions:
    Eg. themes/default/views/Index.php.de_DE
    themes/default/views/Index.php.fr_FR
    etc
    Place these locale-specific versions in the same directory as the view you're localizing

    Hi, I'm currently looking into the Collective Access and possibly getting it for the institution I work for. I do have a few questions:
    What is the security measures, what is the start cost and monthly cost?
    Karl Krägelin
    @karkraeg
    monthly cost depends on the cost for the server youʼll be using, CA ist OpenSource software so you can configure it on your own
    they offer consulting however: https://collectiveaccess.org/services/

    Hi there! We're currently evaluating CA for use in a museum. I have a question regarding shortcuts: Is it possible to add command shortcuts (e.g. "Add new loan for the object I am currently editing" to the object editor menu on the left? Or can new loans added only through the main navigation on top? Related question: Can I add command shortcts (e.g. "New Object") in a custom Dashboard Widget? Thanks for your help :-)

    @sterlingjenson
    @nib-kiag , if a user / group has the option for "quick add," the cataloger can create a new loan / lot on the fly. In my set up, the loan / lot is default location is under "Relationships" section of the default object editor

    @collectiveaccess Hey. I had to recover my database from an old snapshot of the server after a hardware crash. I was able to recover most of it but I get an error on moving objects in storage locations. Log reads:

    ERROR --> DatabaseException: Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (acervomto.ca_movements_x_storage_locations, CONSTRAINT fk_ca_movements_x_storage_locations_type_id FOREIGN KEY (type_id) REFERENCES ca_relationship_types (type_id))

    Is there anyway of repairing this? I am using Direct object-location reference.

    Hey all
    I'm looking for a docker-compose file which will set up a MYSQL database and wire it up to collectiveaccess, so I can demo this thing locally
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    We don't have a supported one for general use, but it's something we really want to do. If you want to work with us to create one let us know
    Jan Baykara
    @janbaykara
    Yeah I'd be up for that.
    I mean, if CA fits my usecase
    My collective does a lot of archiving projects so we're looking around for the right frameworks for the job.

    I made one with Nix while evaluating collectiveaccess, though it's incomplete, barely tested and not currently documented (https://github.com/raboof/nix-collectiveaccess/, e.g. media uploads don't work yet, though I haven't looked into why so that might well be something simple)
    Jan Baykara
    @janbaykara
    It shouldn't be hard to do something like this:
    version: "3.4"
    
    services:
      mysql:
        image: mysql:8
        environment:
          - MYSQL_ROOT_HOST=%
          - MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=${DB_PASSWORD}
          - MYSQL_USER=${DB_USER}
          - MYSQL_PASSWORD=${DB_PASSWORD}
          - MYSQL_DATABASE=${DB_NAME}
        ports:
          - 33060:33060
          - 3306:3306
    
      collectiveaccess:
        depends_on:
          - mysql
        build: ./collectiveaccess
        environment:
          - DB_USER=${DB_USER}
          - DB_PW=${DB_PASSWORD}
          - DB_NAME=${DB_NAME}
        ports:
          - 881:80

    @janbaykara: I guess you probably want to keep your data outside of the container, which is why I used a 'volume' in https://github.com/raboof/nix-collectiveaccess/blob/main/docker-compose.yml
    Jan Baykara
    @janbaykara
    Yep makes sense, was just poking around so didn't bother

    I fixed media uploads and added some basic docs to https://github.com/raboof/nix-collectiveaccess - nothing you'd want to run in production at this point ofc :)

    Hi all, we're having some serious issues trying to get the Contribute plugin to work with Pawtucket 2. I have seen forum posts that refer to this plugin being available for Pawtucket 2 but the only distro we can find was the old Contribute plugin for original Pawtucket at https://github.com/collectiveaccess/pawtucket/tree/master/app/plugins. Is there an updated version we should be using for Pawtucket 2?
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @thelibraryisopn_twitter No there is not
    There is a new "submission" interface in the develop branch, but the only users at on this site
    It was built for them to allow users to submit catalogue entries
    it is not fully documented yet, but will be in the Pawtucket 1.8 release
    @raboof:matrix.org Thank you!
    Magnus Berg 🌈 (he/they)
    @thelibraryisopn_twitter
    I see, thanks for letting me know. So is the submission interface the only way to accept user submissions of archival content that's referred to on the website?

    When I export an object from the back end, the dc:format element is showing the file-type which is clearly being imported from the embedded profile (as I never enter that in any field). Why isn't it showing what is entered in the "Format" field where it's edited, i.e. "Black and white photographs"?

    So far, I've been using a Constant to set the date type as I'm importing data. For some of our data, that works very nicely. But some areas of our database have content dates, collection dates, and creation dates for the same item. How can I correctly import each one of those dates, getting them all set to the correct date type? (Collected, Created, and Content dates are each their own columns.)
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @HollyEtoile_twitter Log into what?
    @untgregory The export mapping is using different fields that you are expecting. I'll email you about this.
    @MuseumK Use separate mappings for each date
    MuseumK
    @MuseumK
    @collectiveaccess As in put the data in separate files, and import them separately, using different mappings?
    @collectiveaccess (Given that it's a constant controlling what sort of date it is, that is how I'm reading it. Unless there's a way to set different constant for different mapped fields?)

    hi I need to quote a setup installation on Linux for Collective any idea how many hour is needed .Assuming never install this software before.
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @rtorresccg It depends who's doing it
    If you know what you're doing Linux-wise, and it's a basic setup (nothing weird) maybe 30 minutes or so

    @rtorresccg: As someone who has done an install from scratch for the very first time on a linux VM, It will take longer than 30mins. Once you figure out all the different supporting libraries you need to install, setting up elasticsearch, the database etc.. and if you are using one of the provided installation profiles, you'd be looking at 1-2 hours minimum. You can get away with installing it without all the libraries and without elasticsearch, that will make it a bit quicker.

    @collectiveaccess
    @InfraRed:matrix.org Most users don't bother with Elastic, at least to start with.

    @collectiveaccess: I still think that if you aren't familiar with the stack, you would want to quote a client enough that you have a buffer to figure things out in.
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    I agree about having a buffer, but if you're familiar with the stack it's not a long process. That's all I'm saying.

    Hi, I am trying to configure the "Content preview" that is shown when a container is collapsed. Some containers seem to have predefined values (e.g. preferred titles), but how can I select a certain metadata element inside the container to be shown as content preview? Thanks for any help with this :-)

    Hello, I have a problem that I cannot solve. I need to have several sites on the same server, each with its own particular content. How do I have to configure to have multiple instances? It would be one backend instance and several frontend instances or one backend instance for each frontend instance. If anyone can help me it would be great. Thank you
