GuestUser (module for Omeka S)

Build Status

Guest User is a module for Omeka S that creates a role called "guest", and provides configuration options for a login and registration screen. Guest users become registered users in Omeka S, but have no other privileges to the admin side of your Omeka S installation. This module is thus intended to be a common module that other modules needing a guest user use as a dependency.

This module is a full rewrite of the plugin Guest User for Omeka Classic.


Uncompress files in the module directory and rename module folder GuestUser.


Replace the login form in your theme by the guest user form

    if ($this->identity()):
        echo $this->hyperlink($this->translate('Logout'), $this->url()->fromRoute('site/guest-user', ['site-slug' => $site->slug(), 'action' => 'logout']), ['class' => 'logout']);
        echo $this->hyperlink($this->translate('Login'), $this->url()->fromRoute('site/guest-user', ['site-slug' => $site->slug(), 'action' => 'login']), ['class' => 'login']);

The login form may be used by any user.


Use it at your own risk.

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