On our Omeka S site, we have separate browse tabs for items and item sets, but we’d love for users to be able to search for both at the same time! Unfortunately, the global “basic search” function only returns results for pages and items, which is confusing as the documentation for searching states that the basic search should return all items, item sets, media, and pages.
To make things weirder, the item pool for the site doesn’t seem to contain any item sets despite all item sets having been added under the “Item Sets” tab on the “Resources” page. The item sets do however appear on the site and when browsing through item sets. I’ve poured through the global and site settings multiple times and have yet to find anything that would explain this problem!
I’d love to hear if anyone else has had problems with this, or if someone can shed some light on what might possibly be causing this! Thank you very much!
