    so I'd check DNS on the server

    Ooo, okay - thanks for the reply. I will check that out!

    @collectiveaccess - okay so the DNS works. All images and text and PHP files display fine. Just the PDFs are not working and have never worked. It would be nice if someone from CA could login and review settings or the configuration file. We need someone who knows what they are doing to see our setup. Because from all indications this should be working.

    On the server command line you can resolve the same hostname used for external requests using a tool such as dig or nslookup?

    I edited media_processing.conf, added a new rule
    rule_rlybig_image = {
    SCALE = {
    width = 2000, mode = width
    },
    SET = {format = image/jpeg}
    },
    and then added that under
    MEDIA_TYPES = {
    image = {
    ...
    rlybig = {
    RULE = rule_rlybig_image, VOLUME = images,
    QUEUE_WHEN_FILE_LARGER_THAN = <queue_threshold_in_bytes>
    },
    ...
    }

    Then tried it out by reprocessing media for one ID:
    ./support/bin/caUtils reprocess-media -i 4017

    But I can't seem to find a new image-res with that name, is there some step I've missed?

    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    Make sure you made these changes in the appropriate sections
    TBthegr81
    @TBthegr81

    The rules doesn't seem to need to exist in any particular section but are grouped by comments, if I understand correctly?
    Other than that there is the different media_types in an array, and what filetypes are uses what is defined in the earlier section of MEDIA_ACCEPT.
    The representation on the object I want a bigger version of is a 2858x1974 TIFF image.
    TIFF is defined as a image in MEDIA_ACCEPT, it "should" work

    Something I've noticed is that there is a lot more defined image-conversions in MEDIA_TYPES Image, there seems to be one more selection being done somewhere for which of those rules are actually activated...

    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    The rules in are the "MEDIA_TRANSFORMATION_RULES" section

    @collectiveaccess Hi i have an issue with serching. When i do a serch on a specific set (that i created during import) it does not return any objects. What am i doing wrong? The items are there an i can group edit them. but not find them...
    @collectiveacces The serch frase is set:"setname"
    murchmurch
    @murchmurch
    @collectiveaccess Another thing regarding the sets is taht when a user tries to acces a set that a nother user has vreated i get a "You don't have access to the set" from the system but the two user have the exact same credentials. A andmin user can acces the set. Any ide why that is?

    @collectiveaccess Is this the appropriate place to ask a general question about Collective Access, or is the forum a better place for that? My question has to do with CA's date time parser. I would like to write an application that parses human-language dates, specifically eras and date ranges (i.e. c. 1350, fifteenth century, etc). From what I read in CA's documentation, it seems the included date time parser is pretty robust and would serve my purposes well, I think. Is this something you could help me with?

    @collectiveaccess yes, they were all logged in, but we resolved with a complete reset of user settings
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @henekh It already parses dates like that

    Hello, I have problems to perform some actions in CA (Providence 1.7.6), for example, duplicating a record or deleting a set with many items. Usually the "error 500" or "err_connection_reset" appears in this actions. Would anyone have idea about the possible problem?

    @collectiveaccess I have lists that appear for certain metadata but they all have the same name "Category". I am creating displays and I want to create a single model in case it is an art object it shows the Art Category, if it was Science it showed the science category. What I am getting is a table with multiple column categories and no result. I am implementing the following on profile displays:

    <placement code="ca_attribute_ElemcatArt">
    <bundle>ca_attribute_ElemcatArt</bundle>
    <settings>
    <setting name="readonly"/>
    <setting name="expand_collapse_value">bubbles</setting>
    <setting name="expand_collapse_no_value">bubbles</setting>
    <setting name="sort">1</setting>
    <setting name="label" locale="en_US">Category</setting>
    <setting name="format">
    <![CDATA[
    <ifdef code="ca_objects.ElemcatArt"></ifdef> ^ca_objects.ElemcatArt </ifdef>
    ]]>
    </setting>
    <setting name="restrict_to_types">LstcatArt</setting>
    </settings>
    </placement>
    <placement code="ca_attribute_ElemcatScTch">
    <bundle>ca_attribute_ElemcatScTch</bundle>
    <settings>
    <setting name="readonly"/>
    <setting name="expand_collapse_value">bubbles</setting>
    <setting name="expand_collapse_no_value">bubbles</setting>
    <setting name="sort">1</setting>
    <setting name="label" locale="en_US">Category</setting>
    <setting name="format">
    <![CDATA[
    <ifdef code="ca_objects.ElemcatScTch"></ifdef> ^ca_objects.ElemcatScTch </ifdef>
    ]]>
    </setting>
    <setting name="restrict_to_types">ElemcatScTch</setting>
    </settings>
    </placement>

    How do I get the category to appear in the same column even if they are of different types?

    absolutely brand spanking noob here. I have network admin experience but never managed a collection before. My mother was an artist and gallery director for 40 years. The family is trying to document and organize her collection of probably... 3000 works (a guess). Basically we want to easily find by media (oil, watercolor, pastel etc.), location if knkown
    Nathan Danner
    @ndanner23_gitlab
    photos, ownership, year completed assessed value, and some freeform notes as well as a reference number of some sort. The goal is to create a private database and to publish much of it through Pawtucket as well. I have a test Providence server up and running. Looking for an installation profile recommendation for a smallish private collection like this. I am tech support plus we have a couple of trained artists in the family assisting. Point me to where someone like me with tech experience but no archival experience can find these answers. Many thanks.

    @collectiveaccess How does CA accomplish date parsing? Is there a way I can build a simple application just to parse dates by using CA's underlying parser(s)? In other words, is there something I can do to take advantage of just that one functionality of CA?

    @MenaYuban_twitter
    Hi! I am new to CollectiveAccess. I have installed Pawtucket2 recently and I would like to know where I can find information on how to add functionalities, since I have pure lorem and empty pages. I do not know where to start.
    RuteM
    @RuteM
    Yu Ban Mena
    @MenaYuban_twitter
    Yes. I already checked that. I just don't know if I have to enter PHP code to show the items. I have no idea how to make things appear.
    RuteM
    @RuteM
    There are things that are configuration, you need to enable configuration to appear. But it all depends on what you want. For example, if you want to post a comment listing on the homepage you need to edit php files. Do you know what you want?
    Yu Ban Mena
    @MenaYuban_twitter
    I need to see the collections and digital objects anchored to them and that they can be displayed.
    RuteM
    @RuteM
    In Providence do you have any collections active?
    Yu Ban Mena
    @MenaYuban_twitter
    yes, I have with 3 digital objects
    RuteM
    @RuteM
    Do you have the collection menu on Pawtucket?
    Yu Ban Mena
    @MenaYuban_twitter
    I dont know

    If you have your own theme, you have to enter your theme
    Yu Ban Mena
    @MenaYuban_twitter
    no, I have the default theme
    RuteM
    @RuteM
    I always advise you to create your own theme

    I have a Pawtucket site here where the advanced search doesn't work
    I can open the Advanced Search but when I try to search for something I get
    Errors occurred when trying to access /index.php/Search/objects:
    View does not exist

    This version ran 1.7.7
    I thought it was maybe the theme so I copied a theme from another working Pawtucket that runs an earlier version (1.7.6) but still nothing, then I tried instead to upgrade to latest stable Pawtucket (1.7.8) but still the same problem (with default theme)

    TBthegr81
    @TBthegr81
    Now I tried setting up a fresh 1.7.6 and still the same error, only changes I do after downloading the release is setting up DB connection and symlinking the mediafolder, so is this problem in the database not Pawtucket itself?
    RuteM
    @RuteM
    TBthegr81
    @TBthegr81
    At that URL I get the form, its only when I press search that I get the error
    TBthegr81
    @TBthegr81

    I compared the apache site configs with another working site, and also tried downloading 1.7.5 but exactly the same error regardless of version
    I must assume the problem is in the database but why would that have to do with a view?
    The files should be there, any other part of pawtucket works so its probably not a webserver config not giving me access
    root:www-data is owner of everything so it should not be a permissions thing
    Tried both default and custom themes

    I suppose I could try installing a fresh empty CA to another DB just to confirm if its in the DB or not...

    I try display the language field in Pawtucket2 but it doesn't work
    {{{<ifdef code="ca_objects.language">
    <div class='unit'><h6>Language:</h6>
                            ^ca_objects.language
                    </div>
                </ifdef>}}}
    RuteM
    @RuteM
    @MenaYuban_twitter In Providence do you have more than one language set up?
    RuteM
    @RuteM
    In the file "providence/pawtucket/app/conf/app.conf" there is the variable "ui_locales" which lists the localities / languages that you want the Pawtucket UI to support. Each locale MUST have a messages.po/mo translation file in app/locales. If you are using themes, the app.conf file will be inside the theme.
