Project Progress Update #2

This week I was inspired by the readings on place, particularly the Boyer and Marcus article about PhillyHistory.org (this would be really neat to do with a project like mine, too), and worked on installing the Omeka Geolocation plugin. This plugin was very straightforward, although I might end up playing around with the configuration to change the appearance. I added a location to an item on the admin side and it worked (an example) and it’s also working on the public site. I have not yet tested it from the contributor side. That’s one of my next steps, as is finishing the other half of the exhibit and continuing to play around with the options for contributors. I also need to build the related resources page/bookshelf (as OutHistory calls it). I also might play around more with the appearance of the site, as that’s something I enjoy doing.
