Correction (module for Omeka S) [archived]

Correction is a module for Omeka S that allows visitors to correct, complete or translate metadata of the resources without access to the admin board. Access to the edit page may be controlled by a token, that you can send to your users.

IMPORTANT This module is deprecated and replaced by the module Contribute in order to manage improvements. The upgrade from module Contribute is automatic.


This module requires the module Generic (version >= 3.0.16) installed first.

See general end user documentation for installing a module.

  • From the zip

Download the last release from the list of releases, and uncompress it in the modules directory.

  • From the source and for development

If the module was installed from the source, rename the name of the folder of the module to Correction.


  • Configure the resource templates to select the properties to be corrected or filled.
  • For the resources without template, configure the properties to correct by default in the main parameters.
  • Create one or more tokens for the resources you want to correct via the link in the sidebar of a resource or the bulk process dropdown at the top of the resource browse pages.
  • Send emails to your users with the tokens, so they can correct or complete metadata of the resources.
  • Go to the resource page of the corrected items and apply changes, or decline them. Corrections can be marked as reviewed and token can be made expired.


  • Make the token optional (allow anybody to edit).
  • Manage the fillable fields with a language, so it will simplify validation of translation.
  • Finalize value resources.
  • Finalize select for resources (dynamic api query via chosen-select).
  • Create an admin browse page with all corrections.


Use it at your own risk.

It’s always recommended to backup your files and your databases and to check your archives regularly so you can roll back if needed.
