I’ve put together a new plugin, Hide Files (https://github.com/DBinaghi/plugin-HideFiles), that allows to hide specific files (for copyright or other reasons).
The plugin is adding a “public” column to the Files Omeka table, and exactly like for Items and Collections and Exhibits one can choose to make a file private (files are all public by default).
When trying to show a file (or its thumbnail), if the file is not public a custom thumbnail/text will appear instead, making the file inaccessible (Item will still be visible, though).
- release 1.0 is still a beta, as not all hiding checks are 100% confirmed. So please use it carefully, expecially for sensitive files;
- there’s a know issue with output formats, some of which will disclose the original filename;
- in order for the plugin to work, one must modify the core
readme.mdfile for instructions).
Please report any issue to https://github.com/DBinaghi/plugin-HideFiles/issues or here; comments and suggestions are as always more than welcome.
Hope this helps.
