Keywords: limited space?

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.

Keywords: limited space?

I have articles that have more keywords than the system allows for the keyword field, also keywords in multiple languages. Is there a way to solve this problem, i.e let the system allow more space for keywords?

Hi ivolt,

What version of OJS are you using?

I am not the site admin for this journal so I can't be absolutely sure, but the page journal/about/aboutThisPublishingSystem says it's 2.3.8.0.

Hi Ivo,

That's an older version and you should consider upgrading -- but I don't believe the aspect of OJS you're asking about has changed. The length limitation is just in the HTML markup, so if you (or your administrator) modify the submission form to remove the maxlength="255" attribute from templates/author/submit/step3.tpl (this is the author's Step 3 submission area), and likewise for templates/submission/metadata/metadataEdit.tpl (the metadata edit form), the restriction should be removed.

Thank you, I will try this. I think, however, that this could be changed by default in the next releases.
