Customization cookbook

This is an ever-expanding cookbook of example customizations. You can use these recipes directly in your CONTENTdm website, or review and adapt them as you see fit.

We are actively gathering additional recipes to add to this section. If you have a customization that you would like to contribute, please contact OCLC Support

The CONTENTdm Cookbook Demo Site demonstrates the end results of the recipes as they are applied to a site. Use the Recipe Portal page as a centralized location to easily learn about, view, or download the latest version of the recipes.

 View a recordingCONTENTdm Community Insight Series: Customization in CONTENTdm. See event announcement (sign-in required) for more information. Also see CONTENTdm training for related training videos.

Cookbook recipes are updated as CONTENTdm changes or as bugs are reported and fixed. Return frequently to see if there are updates for the recipe(s) you are using.
