I am working on a collection (our library uses Omeka for a number of collections - no exhibits) and I have included tags on the items within our collection to make it easier for users to search for items. For example, I have included tags such as ‘2-5 players’ as this is a board game collection, users can use this tag to find other games that are 2-5 players.
When I was on our site, I went to the specific collection for board games and then went to “Browse by Tag”. Expecting a tag cloud of some sort I was surprised to see a huge tag cloud. The tag cloud has every tag from every collection viewable. Making it quite daunting for a user to sift through.
I am looking for a way to sort the tags by collection (all the board game tags, all the children book tags, etc.) and have this sorting reflected on the site so that when a user goes into the board game collection and clicks “browse by tag” they are only given the board game collection tags. Thus giving them a smaller and more manageable tag cloud to skim through.
Is this possible? I have looked at the “Edit Tags” section and see that I can sort in a number of ways but not group the tags by collection and display them with their specific section. If anyone knows of a way to do this I would greatly appreciate it!
