This WordPress Theme powers TRU Collector a site to allow collections of items (termed “collectables”) where contributions can be made without any logins. This is done by using a generic author account that is silently activated. The user never sees any sign of the innards of WordPress but can create posts for each collectable.

The options allow you to create a simple Upload and go mode, but you can also allow (and require or not), captions, a source description (maybe more than hey, I found it on GOOGLE) or a complete rich text editor, and choose a selection of licenses to apply.

Why TRU? I developed this initially while on a fellowship at Thompson Rivers University as one of a suite of SPLOT tools.

Since then many features have been added including options to use a rich text editor, enable user ratings, links to view by open license, and more.
