Omeka for Crowdsourcing a Constitution Archive

In dear need of a plugin that we can use on Omeka to have citizens tag digital born content (videos, articles, photos, pdfs) with metadata.

Omeka suggested asking the community for suggestions or if someone would be adventurous enough to build one? This archive is trying to help citizen initiatives preserve their stories for history. Please help!

Or would anyone know of a plugin that already exists that allows the public to tag contents in our Omeka collection?

You mentioned interest elsewhere in the Folksonomy plugin for Omeka S… that’s a module written by an independent developer; you might be interested in the Tagging plugin for Classic, written by the same developer.

@jflatnes I was really hoping that the “Tagging” plugin would be the answer. Sadly I got this message when I tried to use it on my Omeka site: * This is not a valid plugin.
Any other ideas?

That message probably just means something went slightly wrong in the process of unzipping and uploading the plugin: it should be contained in the plugins folder directly in a folder called Tagging, with no extra levels of folder underneath (i.e., the TaggingPlugin.php file should be directly inside the Tagging folder).

If all that is true then your most likely issue is a problem with permissions.

@jflatnes Would love if it was an error on my part instead of a problem with the plugin. Could you take a look at this screen shot and tell me if you see anything incorrect? The plugin’s name has been changed to Omeka-Tagging-Plugin so I do not see a folder called simply “Tagging”

Here’s the process I used

  1. Downloaded zip from https://github.com/Daniel-KM/Omeka-plugin-Tagging
  2. Uploaded zip to “plug-ins” folder on File Manager
  3. I extract the zip
  4. Choose the path (default is /public_html/plugins)
    The extraction results here"

It’s the “Omeka-plugin-Tagging-master” folder that needs to be changed to “Tagging”: this is mentioned by the plugin’s README.
