Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

Journals in CD-ROM

Postby ramon » Thu Apr 07, 2005 5:14 am

Dear Obeiki,

If it were possible, in my opinion, it would be a it difficult to develop.

First of all, the user would have to be running an Apache Server and MySQL Server in their local computer, which could be distributed in your CD, but would use a lot of space.

The other option would be to save all the HTML files manually, which would be a complete waste, since you would have to manually change all the links, update folder addresses, and so on...

It should be possible, although unlikely for anyone to do this, to develop a PHP script that creates a static html structure...

I've never looked into it in any detail, but it might be possible to use wget and/or curl's mirroring functions to produce a mostly usable offline version of the issues/articles part of the site, at least.
