We use Omeka S to present old letters and an apparatus. The letter are described as items with many metadata. Pages serves the purpose to introduce and present the letters. We integrate some letters inside the pages with the help of media blocks. All letters are available from the navigation (this is why we don’t want pages of the apparatus in the navigation).
If we compare to printed book, each page is a chapter or subchapter. This is why we need some kind of hierarchy. And there are too many pages to integrate them into the navigation.
We would love to use the ‘table of content’ feature to order pages. But it is restricted to navigation pages. So we use a workaround with a html block which present a lists of all pages/chapters:
We copy/paste this html block in the beginning of each page of this ‘book’.
