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.

HTML Article Header/Footer

Postby soj » Mon Jan 02, 2006 10:33 am

Hello all and Happy New Year! We have launched our new journal and published the first article at ejssm.org.

I have just upload the HTML version of the article. Now I am wondering a few things:

If I wished to add the common header and footer to the article view page, what would be the best approach? I see that the article template uses html tags. Which template should I modify? Should I use an include or html for each article?

We are using ojs-2.0.2-1.

Thanks! soj

Hi Soj,

The best approach would probably be to copy the header/footer code into the article view template.

You can find the header code in templates/common/header.tpl (i.e. the "header" div") and the footer code (i.e. the "footer" div) in templates/common/footer.tpl. These divs would need to be added to templates/article/article.tpl.
