Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Just populating our journal site and have requested contents be displayed on front page by ticking box in setup the look. Our contents appear on front page when viewing in Firefox but not Explorer 8. Help appreciated! Angela

Hi Angela,

This often happens if you copy/paste from a Microsoft application into the setup pages -- Microsoft often hides codes in the content that IE then fails to interpret. Use the "view source" buttons on the setup fields that support rich content to see if these codes exist; they're embedded in HTML comments. It's not hard to remove them by hand once they're identified.
