The AvantVocabulary plugin requires that the AvantElasticsearch plugin be installed and activated.

The plugin acquires its vocabulary data from a CSV file located at https://digitalarchive.us/vocabulary/digital-archive-vocabulary.csv. The file is subject to change without notice. You may want to modify your copy of the plugin to read the vocabulary from a local CSV file that you can maintain yourself. You could do that by editing the buildCommonTermsTable method in AvantVocabularyTableBuilder.php.


To install the AvantVocabulary plugin, follow these steps:

  1. First install and activate the AvantElasticsearch plugin.
  2. Download the latest release from https://github.com/gsoules/AvantVocabulary
  3. Unzip AvantVocabulary-master.zip into your Omeka plugins folder
  4. Rename the folder to AvantVocabulary
  5. Activate the plugin from the Omeka Plugins page
