Extend journal setup options to site
Last modified: 2013-03-25 11:55:55 PDT
It would be helpful to extend the journal setup options, specifically those in step 5 that concern the layout and design, to the site. Currently, one can upload custom CSS and a banner image, but there are no options for rearranging elements, adding a left sidebar, etc.
See support thread http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2267 for details of the discussion that led to this feature request.
Is there any progress on this?
It was first reported in 2008 but the option still does not seem to be available.
Likewise it seems very important (at least to me) to add at the ability to add the static pages plugin to the main site.
No progress to report -- the current work-around is to alter the plugin_settings table's contents for journal_id = 0 manually. The relevant setting names OTOH are "seq" (defines order of display), "enabled" (defines enabled/disabled state), and "context" (defines which sidebar is chosen). A better solution for this will be ported to OJS as we merge OMP technology into it in the next set of releases (post-2.4.0).
Implemented in OMP 1.0 / OJS 3.0 (pending release) as part of OMP UI work.
