The archive contains some content redundancy. The redundancy expands options for addressing technical challenges. The redundancy also provides flexibility in viewing and using the content.

Dataset contents:

  1. Communicating with Prisoners WordPress database as a SQL archive file. This file provides all the WordPress content and the theme setup. It’s a gzipped file of SQL statements for recreating the Communicating with Prisoners content tables.

The SQL database archive file is named backup_{date}_communicating_with_prisoners_{id string}-db.gz
    Note: do not share publicly an archive of your WordPress site. We have carefully crafted the above archive so as to address the security issues involved in sharing such an archive.
  2. Communicating with Prisoners content as a WordPress XML export file. The WordPress XML export file was created using the native WordPress export function to export all site content. The WordPress XML export file doesn’t include the site’s graphs and images. Those are in the uploads folder. It also doesn’t include the tables. Those have to be imported separately. The XML export file is named communicatingwithprisoners.wordpress.{date}.xml
  3. TablePress export file. TablePress tables exported with the native TablePress functionality. The export format is JSON, one file per table, compressed into a standard zip file. The TablePress export file is named tablepress-export-{data and time}

  5. Zipped WordPress uploads folder. This folder (unzipped) is in wp-content in a standard WordPress installation. For this ortext, the uploads folder contains WordPress natively uploaded media (graphs and photos). It also contains the data and faces folders. The zipped uploads folder is named backup_{date}_communicating_prisoners_{id string}
  6. The data folder. The data folder contains spreadsheet datasets used in this ortext in Excel and OpenOffice file formats in subfolders excel and openoffice, respectively. This folder includes manifest.csv which describes hosting urls for dataset versions. You can edit this file and re-import it to change the hosting of datasets. A convenient way to modify manifest.csv is via the manifest-admin workbook. The data folder is within the zipped uploads folder.
  7. The faces folder. The faces folder contains faces of prisoners displayed randomly within the Communicating with Prisoners ortext.

  10. Ortext BibTex Importer plugin. Unless you’re importing BibTex references, you don’t need this plugin. Good security practice is not to have on a public server a plugin that you’re not using. The zipped plugin file is
  11. Zipped Ortext Build plugin. The Ortext Build plugin is used for custom timelining and internal key-linking in building an ortext. It also provides a framework for running utility functions, including flipping between key links and full-url permalinks. Because the operations the plugins performs are relatively vulnerable to security exploits, don’t move this plugin to a public accessible webserver unless you really know what you’re doing. The zipped plugin file is
  12. BibTex reference file. The Ortext BibTex Importer plugin imported the references into the Communicating with Prisoners ortext using files like this one. The references are already included in the ortext SQL database and XML export files. The BibTex reference file gives you an alternative source for working with the references. It was created as an EndNote export file. The BibTex reference file is named references.txt
