Hi, I’m new to Omeka S, and wanted to clarify the expected behavior of the Metadata Browse module’s “Direct Links” option on URI fields. I expected that enabling “Direct Links” would enable the direct linking behavior on all selected fields regardless of data type. What I’m seeing is that there is no change to the display of URI fields when “Direct Links” is enabled. I am still seeing the label link out to the URI with a separate “View all items with this value” link below.
Based on this reply, it looks like this is the expected behavior. Is that correct?
What I would like to achieve is storing a value as a URI internally (such as a Library of Congress authority URI for a subject heading), but providing a Metadata Browse direct link to the end user. Is this currently possible or being considered?
When testing the public site view, I expected that clickable values to take me to other items that share that value, not to an external linked data vocabulary. If I weren’t a metadata librarian, I would probably be pretty confused about what I was looking at on the LC linked data site and how I got there.
Thank you, and please let me know if I’m missing something! As I said, I’m new to this so might be misunderstanding.
