We’re looking at making changes to how users connect items and sites in Omeka S, and as part of that, we’d like to hear from the users.
The current item pool system makes it tricky for us to implement some features (for example, a public side search that works across multiple sites), so we are considering some different systems for choosing which items appear in which sites.
So, what we’re really interested to hear about is: what about the current item pool system do you think works well for you, and what doesn’t? Is configuring and using the item pool for sites convenient, or is it more of something that you’re “working around” (or maybe even ignoring).
Feel free to make specific suggestions or complaints (or kudos, we like those too), but even just a more general sense of how you’re finding using the item pools would be greatly appreciated.
