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.

Language Problem after installation

Postby ramon » Tue May 24, 2005 7:17 am

Dear OJSers,

Here's the problem:

I installed OJS 1.x with the wrong language.
In the journal configuration I changed to the correct default lanuage, but most of the options are in the language I installed first.

How do I proceed to reinstall the correct language without loosing what I input?

I know I've done this before but don't remember now...
This post is just to keep a record of this question...

Default values of journal setup settings and email templates are inserted at installation time in the installation language (see admin/include/createdb.php)

There is no function within OJS to reset these settings to another language, though I imagine it would be fairly trivial to write a script to do so.
