I have a similar request to this post (from 2017 with Omeka Classic).
My hope is that there is a nicer way to do this in Omeka S, perhaps with view helpers? The closest seems to be the
dataType helper, but I would ideally be able to single out an individual property using a built-in helper View Helpers - Omeka S Developer Documentation.
I have a property for width and a property for height using the integer data type. I would like to combine these in the rendered output as a single ‘Dimensions: height x width’.
I can of course override the show.php in the theme to achieve this, but I sense there is a better way. Pseudocode:
- check the presence of values in width and height
- create new renderable object with the label dimensions and the value width x height
- remove the renderable objects for independent width and height so they don’t get rendered too.
I’ve had a trawl through the developer documentation and it’s not obvious though my hunch is that I could create a simple module or theme helper to do this. Any pointers/examples would be gratefully received please.
