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.

"New Articles" URL error

Sorry for all the new questions, but we hope to go online in January, and are trying to shift this 8 yr old journal into OJS. Thanks for help and suggestions.

There's something wrong with the mailout to inform people of new items. It says: "The following new articles have been published to the The Harrow: Original Works of Fantasy and Horror web site at http://www.theharrow.com/journal/New Articles"

But "New Articles" is not a valid URL. What have we done wrong?

Thanks in advance.

There appears to be a missing newline in the auto-generated email text. Try applying this small patch to admin/editor/publishing.php

Thanks. I applied the patch, if I understood it... really it was just to add:
so that line 1164 now is
$msg .= "\n"._tr('NEW_ARTICLES')."\n----------------------------------------\n\n";

Right? :)
