    Hey there! I am beginning to write an import mapping. As I work with Data (including notes) exported from Zotero, I tend to use the zotereo native rdf for a file format. In the documentation i find instructions for, what i would call generic xml, but not for a rdf tag structure, where the tag names are always key-value pairs (eg <bib:book> and <bib:article> which both serve as root tags for entries. Is there a specific syntax used in the mapping for rdf parsing, or a workaround using Wildcards (e.g. /bib:*/... following the explanation for xml input)

    @aaaamu_gitlab
    ...I think i will fallback to a table based export, but would still be interesting, as rdf is listed as an import file-format in the docu...

    ...what is the relationship between the documentation on docs. and manual. subdomain? It appears that manual references a future version (1.8) while docs references various versions?
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @aaaamu_gitlab docs.collectiveaccess.org is the old wiki, which is being phased out. manual.collectiveaccess.org is the new documentation site geared towards the upcoming 1.8 release. Most of the information on there is valid for 1.7 as well, with 1.8-specific stuff noted as such
    @sasha0701 I'd recommend checking your browser's console and seeing if there's an error with loading of the css file. It looks like that because the css file is not loading. It could be that somehow you didn't install it, or deleted it. Or it could be web server config somehow blocking it... or maybe something else. But bottom line is the CSS is not loading.
    @aaaamu_gitlab Probably the easiest thing to do is create a Zotero-specific data reader for the importer, inheriting from BaseXMLDataReader.php. Or look at the RDFReader.php (app/lib/Import/DataReaders/RDFReader.php

    I feel a bit stupid, but how does one use the entitySplitter correctly to import a field that contains "Lastname, Firstname"? I just dont get my head around it...
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @aaaamu_gitlab Please post your splitter question on the forum (https://support.collectiveaccess.org); include your mapping and some sample data (just a couple of rows is fine) and I'll post working examples based upon that for you

    I have a repeatable container with three elements: value, type of measurement, extent. In a template, is there a way to display the different values grouped by extent? Instead of getting something like

    Height of image: 20 cm
    Length of image: 20 cm

    getting something like>

    Image

    • Height: 20 cm
    • Length: 20 cm

    Has anyone had issues with links/buttons in Providence not working? We just got a fresh install up but I'm unable to add representations, child records, relationships, basically anything with the "plus" sign beside it. I can't figure out where the error is coming from or how to resolve it

    I'm also getting this error message when attempting to edit a display list, but we have not altered this php file at all: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in providence/themes/default/views/bundles/ca_bundle_display_placements.php on line 34

    @collectiveaccess
    @thelibraryisopn_twitter What happen when you click the links? And can you perhaps provide some context in terms of your server configuration?

    @thelibraryisopn_twitter
    When I click the links nothing happens. We are using a LAMP stack with MariaDB on CentOS 7.

    Hello, is there any way to search text inside pdfs with collectiveaccess and pawtucket?

    Hello, I have just installed a fresh version of CA on my server, and added a test object. The search function when I am trying to search by name is not yielding any results.
    I did not make any changes to the configuration files, and did not add any metadataElements..
    Krishna Vamsi
    @kchand23
    The object is visible under the Browse menu, which makes it difficult to understand how to configure the search..

    Hello! I am working on a plugin for pawtucket but we have some uncertainties regarding the routing and plugin loading. Is it correct that when having a plugin located at /app/plugins/StoryMode and a controller at /app/plugins/StoryMode/controllers/StoryModeController.php we should be able to call the Index() method at path index.php/StoryMode/StoryMode/index? And in order to get started we copied the code from the FindingAid plugin, I read that the plugin is not needed anymore but is it still functional? Thanks already!

    If anyone's interested, the cause of our previous error with the links was a missing query cookie plugin. It has since been rectified

    However, we are now having issues with loading PDFs in providence and pawtucket. The viewer in Pawtucket loads but we get an error message saying "Unable to load TileSource". If I check the browser console it says "No TileSource was able to open undefined Object openseadragon.js:11361 $.TileSource.determineType @ openseadragon.js:11361" and "Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Error)"
    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    We have two areas of collections, History/Anthropological collections and Biological collections. One adheres to Dublin core, the other darwin core. Is there any way to use specific profiles for each type of collection?

    Hello! Quick question, in Providence when browsing any table (entities, objects, places, etc), when selecting by "type" only one type is displayed. No changes made in browse.conf from default. Where else could I look to solve? Perhaps related, the item count in () is almost always off.
    Magnus Berg 🌈 (he/they)
    @thelibraryisopn_twitter
    I fixed my tilepics issue. It was a combination of permissions errors and needing to re-process the assets. However, now PDFs that are over two pages are causing the browser to crash. We have 8GB of RAM and our memory limit is set to 1280MB. Our IT person says it's a problem with the software rather than the server configuration. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Yes. I have incorporated a section of the Database for MARC records of books inside a Dublin Core installation. I created this by creating a sub type for books and then created a series of metadata fields related to the standard MARC format. After which I created a specific user interface just for the "Books" subtype

    is the current wkhtmltopdf version ok for CA or 0.12.1 must still be used?
    sterlingjenson
    @sterlingjenson
    I just double checked my server and I am using version 0.12.5 of wkhtmltopdf without the problems that I remember having with version 0.12.2. (edited)
    sterlingjenson
    @sterlingjenson
    After updating, 0.12.6 seems to be working

    Is it possible - on a system-side level - to restrict which versions of images are accessible to the public, if the image is set as accessible to the public? For copyright and other reasons, we'd like to be able to dump full size images into CollectiveAccess, but only have certain of the processed image sizes accessible.
    CollectiveAccess
    @collectiveaccess
    @MuseumK The access pertains to all versions of the file. To restrict access to specific sizes just make sure your theme uses only the desired sizes.
    MuseumK
    @MuseumK
    @collectiveaccess Oh, yes, I had forgotten how that aspect worked. Perfect!

    @collectiveaccess is there a way to import objects to a set? Or when exporting objects, export the set codes they are related to?

    Does anyone have an ISAD(G) metadata map they could share with us? We're having difficulty figuring out how to import records within a hierarchy

    Hi everybody. I want to start off saying I am not a programmer, I'm just an archivist at a very small archive. I have successfully gotten Providence and Pawtucket running on my DigitalOcean droplet. Providence is running great. However, I cannot seem to edit anything in Pawtucket. I've followed tutorials on creating a new directory in themes and copying files there to make changes, but nothing I do is reflected in the site (everything is still basic lorem ipsum). I know I'm probably missing something obvious but can anyone help me? I'd greatly appreciate it.
    0nobody0
    @0nobody0
    @JanineWinfree_twitter did you update the pawtucket/app/conf/app.conf file to use the new theme?
    Ja-9 the Orcish Librarian πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»
    @JanineWinfree_twitter
    I know I updated one of the conf files but in that particular one I don't see a theme option. But i'm sorry -- it's just now quitting time here, I'll be back tomorrow! thank you for your answer, i'll give you a better reply tomorrow

    @0nobody0
    no worries, i might have been mistaken about that, was looking at old docs - have you looked at https://pawtucket2.readthedocs.io/en/latest/pawtucket/themes/defining.html
    Ja-9 the Orcish Librarian πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»
    @JanineWinfree_twitter
    Yeah, I was following that doc and have the copied folder, have edited things in the folder but nothing is overriding the default. Like for example, About is still lorem ipsum text.
    Ja-9 the Orcish Librarian πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»
    @JanineWinfree_twitter
    So this is what I'm doing -- copied 'copyme' to folder 'beck', renamed setup.php default to 'beck', copied default/views/About to beck/Views/About, edited Index.php in About and see no changes on my site

    @JanineWinfree_twitter
    You guys will be amazed to know that I was editing the entirely wrong directory in my home/janine directory instead of in my var/www -_- this is why I'm not a programmer. Anyway it works now. Thanks y'all

    Need a reminder on import mappings. If I'm importing lots of different types (gifts, purchases, etc.), and I have a column in the data to be imported that tells which is which, how do I map that?
