Plugin for adding specific Item Type Metadata


I am interested in creating a plugin that when installed will add a custom Item Type to an Omeka install. Has this been done before? If not, does it seem doable and would a plugin be the best route? If so, any ideas on how to get started?



This is definitely doable, and would indeed be a plugin. If it is just for a single site, it might be quicker and easier to add what you need via the admin interface, though. Otherwise, the plugin would use the install hook to insert the necessary data.

The closest analogy is probably this code in Dublin Core Extended that adds more elements to the Dublin Core Element Set.

You’d need to modify the code for Item Type Element Set, but it’s a good starting point.

Hey. Thanks for this. I will start off by looking at the Dublin Core Extended plugin.
