IIIF Toolkit Import Manifest from External URL


This plugin looks promising if I can get it running but i’m finding everything with iiif is difficult once one takes it off a local server. I was wondering if you could help:

After installing a new installation of Omeka 2.8 and the IIIF Toolkit plugin something is wrong as manifests won’t import.

No external IIIF Server is being used therefore the IIIF Prefix config is left blank and the Mirador Path / JS / CSS etc. are all left at their default settings. When checking the file structure of the website these appear accurate.

At this point in the trial i am simply attempting to import a manifest at random from the Bodlein to test the system (ie https://iiif.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/iiif/manifest/704731db-8d26-420d-b530-667bc9fccf4f.json) nothing happens and there are no manifests and nothing in the Status tab.

Where have I gone wrong - any ideas?

Kind Regards, C.
