Is there a way to use commas in tags? All of my data has last-name-first data (e.g. Irwin, Ken) that I’d like to use as tags. I found this discussion of the problem from 2010:
but I didn’t find anything more recent.
In the 2010 conversation, “wanderingwill” wrote:
“So after looking at it some more, I determined that the issue is not a bug, but a restriction on our data model. In Omeka, tags cannot have commas in them. Commas are delimiters. The restriction is not specific to the Csv Import plugin.”
Another user pointed to an instance of commas being used in tags, suggesting that there might be a way around it, and also said they’d heard that someone was working on a plugin to address it.
I’ve considered some rendering shenanigans, e.g. having commas represented by an unusual set of characters (“ZZZ”) and then rendered as commas in the visual output, but that seems super fault-prone. Or perhaps substituting an ASCII comma with a Unicode comma variant: https://unicode-search.net/unicode-namesearch.pl?term=COMMA
Are there conventional approaches to this problem that folks have found to work well?
