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.

Journal Managment Template

Anyone know how to coax the journal management template header into matching that of the live journal. I have a banner image in the page header, but it does not display in the jrnl mgt pages. Instead a text header is used. Given I had to nix the padding, those page headers look odd now.

thanks! soj

Hello Soj,

This is a bug -- see http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1915 for information and a patch to correct it. It only affects the header images on the Journal Setup pages.

Great! However, being unfamiliar with the template system, I'm not seeing how this patch should installed - Which file should be modified, and where in the file?
THX! soj

The patch should be applied using the "patch" tool -- this should be included on any *nix platform (including MacOSX). Download the patch into the OJS base directory, change into that directory, and apply the patch as follows:
Code: Select all
patch -p1 < the.patch.filename


If you don't have the patch tool, the following files are changed:
  • classes/template/TemplateManager.inc.php
  • templates/common/header.tpl

If you pick through the patch file for lines beginning with "-" (which means a line was removed) and lines beginning with "+" (which means a line was added), you'll be able to see what was changed. Lines beginning with "diff" specify what file was being changed, and lines beginning with "@@" specify the rough line numbers that changes happened to.

THANKS again - your comments were sufficient to help me replace the code in the files myself. May have been the hard way, but I learned a ton. And now I know where to look in the patch docs too. I'm very pleased!

Any idea why this patch would not be working for the site admin section?

thanks! soj

Hi Soj,

Each OJS installation supports many journals, and the logos you configure in journal setup for each journal apply to all pages that belong to that journal. However, the site administration pages are "site-wide" -- that is, not within the scope of any particular journal -- so the journal logos don't apply.

While there's currently no provision for a logo in the site settings, you can enter a text title.
