Frequently Asked Questions
How do I request a feature or submit a bug report?
Please create a Github account and use the Issues tracker at github.com/CPHDH/Curatescape/issues.
Can I create a Curatescape project with my own design and/or branding?
Yes. While paid Curatescape projects include some customizable elements, licensing organizations and individuals may wish to create their own look from scratch. Please review Custom logo and theme design for details on compatibility requirements and other considerations.
Video is not working on my site! How do I fix it?
First, make sure that you have reviewed the video formatting requirements. Video should play fine on all major browsers/devices if your file is formatted according to the Curatescape video recommendations. Assuming your video is properly encoded, you may need to add the following to your .htaccess file:
AddType video/mp4 mp4 m4v
How can I speed up my site?
Make sure you have enabled caching in your .htaccess file by uncommenting the following lines...
<IfModule mod_expires.c> <FilesMatch "\.(js|ico|gif|jpg|png|css)$"> ExpiresActive on ExpiresDefault "access plus 10 day" </FilesMatch> </IfModule>
Next, enable GZIP by adding the following...
These two changes should make a considerable difference in page load times.
Can I migrate or batch ingest content into Curatescape?
There are many ways to migrate or ingest content into Omeka. However, in most cases, it is not recommended. Curatescape projects use Omeka in unique manner. Read more about Curatescape's conceptual and organizational framework in the Content Layout Guide. If you still wish to migrate or ingest data in bulk, please contact your project manager or visit omeka.org for more information.
My Curatescape site doesn't have a "Curatescape Story" item type!
Simply install the CuratescapeAdminHelper plugin. Activating the plugin will automatically create the "Curatescape Story" item type and a bunch of handy custom fields. It will also add some helpful options to the admin user interface.
For Curatescape sites with large amounts of legacy content (that is, content created specifically for an older version of Curatescape), enable the "Migration Helper" configuration. This will allow you to batch convert legacy items to the new format. IMPORTANT NOTE: The Migration Helper option is emphatically not for newer projects and should only be used once per item, if at all. Failure to use the Migration Helper carefully can result in a lot of duplicate content. Seriously, don't even use it unless someone tells you to!
