Scribe Theme Install


Good Morning

Without getting into great details at the moment could someone tell me if you are successfully running the Scribe theme. I did install it but was face with errors. I did notice it was not on the official Omeka Theme page for Classic. We are a Canadian Genealogical Society and the software is outstanding and we wish to use it to employ volunteers to Transcribe old documents.
Thanks for your time.


There are a number of institutions out there using Scribe, including the people who created it at the University of Iowa. Also, I believe, Digital Maine and Virginia Memory.


Thanks for the email - I download the Theme as you suggest as this appears to be a different version i recieved first.

I installed it but now i am getting this error:

Omeka has encountered an error
The provided adapter method “getPageTranscriptionStatus” does not exist.

Thanks for any assistance



Hi Steve - Thanks very much for the message. I am the maintainer of the Scribe theme as well as its accompanying transcription plugin and would be happy to help with any issues. Unfortunately, I have just left for vacation (and am only on mobile) and won’t be back into the office to respond properly until September 5. I will follow up with you then and we can work through these errors you’re seeing. Feel free to contact me at matthew-butler AT uiowa. Many thanks, Matthew Butler


Thank you Matthew for your assistance and i look forward to speaking with you


Was your issue resolved? I am seeing the same error. What did you do to fix it?


Hey there - As you can see in the message i spoke to the developer of the theme from he University of Iowa. He resolved the issue remotely. I would suggest connecting with him at his email in the message.
