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.

Hello,

I have several questions (from a journal) that I am not able to answer. Could you please help?
Here the questions:
1. Is it possible to have a subscriptions with no end date?
2. How is the subscription type checkbox/option "Subscribers must be members of an association or organization." used, i.e. how is this possibility to access the content by members of an association correctly used/configured?
3. Which e-mail templates are automatically sent by the system and when?
4. Some e-mail templates can not be deactivated. When are they sent?
5. There is a possibility to create new e-mail templates. How can these new created e-mail templates be used?
6. Do readers/users have to be logged in to buy an article?
7. Which URL should be given to PayPal (for IPN)?

Thanks a lot!

Hi swing,

1. Is it possible to have a subscriptions with no end date?

Yes, but you'll need a new release of OJS. You can configure this for each subscription type.

2. How is the subscription type checkbox/option "Subscribers must be members of an association or organization." used, i.e. how is this possibility to access the content by members of an association correctly used/configured?

This will require the Journal Manager/Subscription Manager and users to who buy subscriptions online to enter information (e.g. a code, a membership #, etc.) into the membership field for the subscription.

3. Which e-mail templates are automatically sent by the system and when?

You can read the content of existing email templates to get a sense of when/where they are used. Please see the documentation and settings to see which automatic emails can be turned on/off during editorial workflows.

5. There is a possibility to create new e-mail templates. How can these new created e-mail templates be used?

You can click on the mail icon for the email template to use the new template and send an email.


6. Do readers/users have to be logged in to buy an article?

Yes.

7. Which URL should be given to PayPal (for IPN)?

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr

Cheers,
Michael

Hi Michael,

Thanks a lot for your answers!
When using PayPal + IPN, PayPal wants you to enter the (OJS) URL where the IPNs are sent. Which URL is this? Something like .../payment/plugin/Paypal/ipn?

Thanks a lot!

Hi swing,

You can leave the Notification URL blank in your PayPal IPN settings. Just ensure IPN is enabled.

Cheers,
Michael
