HOW-TO: install toolbar

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.

HOW-TO: install toolbar

Postby Amira » Mon Nov 15, 2010 6:12 am

Dear supporters,
Our OJS was moved to another server. The newly installed OJS does not contain the toolbar below the boxes which are to be filled with text - see attachment. How can I, as a journal manager, insert the toolbar (instead of working with xml-tags)?
Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Amira,

Those toolbars are actually TinyMCE buttons. TinyMCE functionality is provided as a plugin -- you should ensure that the plugin is enabled in Journal Management -> System Plugins -> Generic Plugins (look for the TinyMCE plugin and make sure it's enabled). Additionally, you should ensure that all files have been moved over properly, and that you have reset your base_url parameter in your config.inc.php file, if that has changed.

Cheers,
James

Hi Amira,

Further to James' post, this might actually be a permissions problem. Check your server log for requests trying to fetch the button icons and see if there are e.g. file not found or permission denied messages.

Hi James & Alec,
Thank you very much for your replies! Unfortunately we could not solve the problem. The plugin was already activated. It might be a permissions problem, indeed, but our webmaster has not solved it yet. So I am trying to get along with xml tags. In this relation I would like to ask, if/how I could upload a doc or a pdf file. Would that be possible at all? If yes, how do I have to proceed?
Thank you very much in advance and kind regards,
Amira

Hi Amira,

You can upload PDF/HTML files in a variety of places, depending on what the need for the file is. Can you give us a bit more of an idea on what the file(s) are to be used for? We can then provide some possible solutions. Of course, you may also be able to find answers to your question by searching the forum for keywords like "file upload", etc. And also, you may find that uploading files is problematic if you are running into permissions problems in general.

Cheers,
James
