Working on imports, and I posted in the forum, but no response. I've sorted out what the problem is, but not how to fix it. No matter what setting I choose for the existing record policy (be it merge_on_idno_and_preferred_labels or none), it is absolutely combining records based, it seems, on both the idno and the preferred labels. Separately. If it matches the preferred label anywhere, it merges the records. If it matches the idno anywhere, it merges the records. This is incredibly problematic. Note that we're on 1.7.11, but I don't see anything that leads me to believe 1.7.12 fixes this issue. Help!
A question regarding Pawtucket (using 1.7.12), is there a way to create a permanent link to specific search or browse? If the corresponding link is copied with key reference, it works for a bit but it is not permanent. Thanks
I have a question regarding Pawtucket and Provenance's search feature. My version of the CA software is configured for archives. I can create hierarchical relationships between different objects, so that I can have multiple 'item' object entries under one 'file' object entry. However, this also means that the shared standard search engine for both Pawtucket and Provenance will return all items associated with that hierarchy, even if I use a term that is applicable to only one of the items. I was wondering if there was a way to configure the search features so that this would not happen, allowing for more targeted item searches.
I also can't seem to view Interstitial data in the API...
Hiya, I'm trying to set up a carousel to display objects from collections. Because I've found it difficult to figure out doing that directly, I've set up the collection objects as a set (so it's not just one item (ie. the collection) in a public presentation, but all of the objects). When I try and work with the gallery slideshow, it just shows one picture for each set, when I want to get the gallery to scroll through a single public presentation. I think the way to change it is by adjusting va_sets and vn_sets and those sorts of codes in gallery_slideshow_html, but I have no idea what to change and everything I've done either breaks the site or doesn't have any affect. If anyone knows what vb/vn/va means that would be great help!!
Does anybody know where I can edit the box that appears in the map of Pawtucket when you click an item? The image thumbnail is outside of the background.
Can app/printTemplates/results/local overwrite /themes/default/views/find/Results/docx_results.php?
We need to generate a text only list of wall labels so that the museum can modify the text and then print the document
Hi there, I just started and wanna create a website for my art, so how can I build it after baying a domain name?
No, that's not what this software is for. It's for institutions to download and install for themselves. So you will need some hosting, either one that you manage or get a vendor to install and host it for you.
If you're after something you can just upload work to and build a webpage, i suggest you look at Omeka.net
@collectiveaccess: I have just tested out the new 3D object code you mentioned a while ago and pleased to say the new sidecar file works! I can view the 3D object in full. Thank you for your work on this.
Hi. I am currently dealing with 'Lock Wait Timeout Exceeded' errors on new uploads to my database. We are in version 1.7.12, and are using Imagick.
@BryanWWork: What OS and MySQL version are you using? Does this happen every time you try and upload media?
Hello everybody! I've been looking for info like about 2 days and I haven't found too much information about bundles. I want to edit a default bundle like ca_objects.preferred_labels or ca_objects_deaccession and add one metadata (a new one) to that bundle. I've read that those are special bundles. CA allows me to create a new container and add metadata to that container creating new attributes. I can edit this new container from Manage->Administration->Metadata elements but the 'default' bundles like ca_entities, ca_objects.preferred_labels, ca_objects.nonpreferred_labels etc aren't visible, just in the DB. Is there anything I can do to edit those bundles? I have CA 1.7 Hope u are having a great day. thanks!
Hello! Question: when exporting bundles via PDF Checklist, long texts are cut off after a certain amount of characters. Is there a way of extending this limit to include long texts?
Hi folks! Getting started with CollectiveAccess, so far I'm learning a lot and I've added a few items and collections to our setup. One thing I can't get working out of the box though is /Collections, it shows "No collections available" even if I have multiple collections marked as "accessible to public", and they are viewable through /Browse. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
@jonasrosland Welcome. The first step is to check if the objects are accessible to the public and the media is too
I cannot tell you how many times I skipped one of those boxes
@sterlingjenson Yup! They're all publicly available. I can see them through the Browse>Collections, go into each item, see the media etc.
Thread with some screenshots here to explain what I see
Ok doesn't seem like I can post screenshots in a thread, so here goes.
There we go
The collections pop up when using the search function as well
@jonasrosland: I believe the Collections page needs to be customised in the collections.php file under the theme directory. You need to tell it what you want to have displayed there. But I haven't actually used Pawtucket, so will need confirmation on that.
Ok, I’m just using the standard template that comes with Pawtucket, so… seems like that might be broken?
@jonasrosland not broken, but some bits need to be set up to work with how you've set up Providence side. It can't assume which profile you've chosen for your data modelling. As a highly customisable piece of software you need to get into the configurations if you want it to work the best it can.
Hi @jonasrosland . I will install Pawtucket and take a look today. In the collections.conf file there is a place to say what collection types to use are. They might be something like internal or external. I can't remember what the DC profile uses. When you add a collection, what are the types you have to pick from?
