Omeka is a free, open source content management system for online digital collections. As a web application, it allows users to publish and exhibit cultural heritage objects, and extend its functionality with themes and plugins. A lightweight solution in comparison to traditional institutional repository software like DSpace and Fedora, Omeka has a focus on display and uses an unqualified Dublin Core metadata standard.
When the CAS authentication plugin is enabled, user-accounts are active on creation and do not require any activation link or email confirmation. The password reset screen has been overridden to prevent non-actions.
You can add groups to Omeka, and all users will be individually added with the role that you assign upon creation.
Only users with the site-super role can activate plugins.
To activate a plugin:
- Log on to your Omeka site by going to /admin, or click the "Log On" link at the tip right of your site, if the Login Bar plugin has been enabled.
- Click the Plugins Link in the admin bar.
- Locate the plugin you want to enable from the list, and click Install. This will redirect you to a configuration form, if it exists.
