I’m new to Omeka and I’ve been researching the platform for a multi-site exhibits project I’m working on. Omeka S seems to be the ideal version to use, however I find its current selection of themes/templates to be minimal. I’ve been looking into customizing existing themes or even building a new one and there as well comprehensive documentation seems to be scant.
My challenge is not with HTML/CSS (I have experience with structure/layout and styling websites), but understanding the view helpers and functions/configuration needed to call and display content/layout. Basically, the structure of a theme.
Can anyone recommend resources/guides/tutorials/tips/best practices – anything beyond the basic (not particularly instructive…) steps in the current Omeka S documentation – that’s helped them with modifying/building an S theme?
PS - And if anyone from the Omeka team reads this–are there plans to expand documentation on theme building? Even recommended links would be helpful.
