WordPress for collections

This WordPress Collections Project was initiated as a result of trying to find a suitable plugin to manage a museum collection.

The Collections Trust in the UK has a list of system providers but for us these were too big and complex.  Our museum is run by a few volunteers with limited hours to spare each week.

The aim of this project is to develop an easy to use system using WordPress, some custom code and a couple of third party plugins:

  • CustomPress – to generate custom post types, taxonomies and custom fields.
  • User Role Editor – to create a new curator role
