Today we release a new Omeka theme for Curatescape projects. Curatescape Echo joins (the renamed) Curatescape Classic as an option for all Curatescape websites. This theme is fully compatible with the same set of plugins and the existing content structure, so all you’ll need to do is install and configure, then get on with your day. Check it out live on clevelandhistorical.org or read on for additional details and instructions.
We are pleased to announce that the Curatescape theme version 3.2.2 includes a number of accessibility enhancements that bring it into conformance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA, and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for Curatescape.Continue reading Accessibility Enhancements and Responsible Content-Creation

The latest version of the Curatescape theme for Omeka was released yesterday. The new design is currently live on clevelandhistorical.org and will be rolled out to existing users in the coming weeks (open source users can grab a copy from Github). The theme will look familiar to some, but includes a number of key changes and a ton of improvements that make it more than a simple design refresh. The front end has been almost entirely rewritten, with much cleaner markup, more consistent styling and typography, more semantic structure, and vastly improved accessibility, loading times, and overall page size. We think you’ll like it.Continue reading Updates to the Curatescape Omeka theme
