Available Plugins in Omeka.net plans

I note that while the higher-priced .NET plans include ‘unlimited’ plugins and themes, there are many more plugins listed at .ORG than seem immediately available through those plans.

Am I correct? If correct, is there a way for an account holder to add the ‘missing’ plugins (or themes) to the higher-priced plans?

Thanks for your question.

You are correct that not all plugins are available on Omeka.net, and there are a number of reasons for the discrepancy.

First, the Omeka.org site hosts all of the plugins developed by the larger Omeka community. On Omeka.net, we feel that we can mostly only maintenance and support of plugins developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media.

Second, there are a number of structural issues about the way that the large, networked, and hosted instance of Omeka.net is constructed that mean we cannot offer a number of plugins – those that require users to have direct server access, etc.

We try to offer as much as we can on Omeka.net, but we have to be responsible about the kind of service we can reliably provide.
