A new WordPress plugin has been developed that allows users to embed resource files from ResourceSpace in their posts. The plugin was funded by ADRA International and developed by Codecide. To install the plugin, users should download the WordPress plugin zip file, navigate to Plugins->Add plugins from the WordPress Admin menu and click 'Upload plugin', or manually upload the zip file to the wp-content/plugins directory of the WordPress installation. The ResourceSpace plugin should then be activated under the plugins menu. Users can add resources to their pages, posts or other custom content using shortcodes generated from the ResourceSpace panel within the admin section, or from the block or classic editor options. A ResourceSpace tab in the Media Library allows users to copy resources to the local server or to embed a resource using a generated shortcode. The shortcodes support CSS properties as arguments, if and when those need to be updated manually.

Metadata is data that provides information about other data, without describing the content of that data. It is crucial for digital assets and is used to categorize and describe various types of files, such as documents, videos, and audio files. Metadata is the lifeblood of a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system and is just as important as the content itself. It defines the value of an asset by providing all the necessary information about it. For example, metadata can provide historical context for a digital image of an ancient artifact, making it valuable. Unlike file storage solutions like Google Drive or Microsoft Sharepoint, DAM systems use metadata to enhance search functionality. There are three primary categories of metadata: structural, descriptive, and administrative. Structural metadata describes the file itself, including its format, size, and creation date. Descriptive metadata defines the contents of an asset, such as keywords and descriptions. Administrative metadata helps manage assets by providing information on governance, access controls, copyright, and license agreements. Administrative metadata ensures compliance with copyright and privacy laws and prevents unauthorized use of assets.
Consent is not just limited to personal contact information or medical records; it also applies to artwork, photos, and videos where a person is identifiable. Digital asset managers need to have robust consent policies and procedures in place to comply with regulations and protect the privacy of individuals. There are six legal bases for processing personal information, and obtaining consent is one of them. Consent refers to when an individual gives clear permission for an organization to process their personal data for a specific purpose. The other legal bases include contract, legal obligations, vital interests, public task, and legitimate interests. Consent must be freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous. To be considered a "genuine choice," individuals must be able to refuse consent without any negative consequences. For example, if consent is required for a purchase but not necessary for processing the order, it is not considered freely given. Digital asset managers must ensure that individuals have a genuine choice and control over how their data is used.
