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.

Placement of the 'Bio statement'

Postby ClausRose » Thu Sep 29, 2011 5:20 am

Hello all,

We've just updated OJS to 2.3.6 - and one of our journals is experiencing a problem with the 'bio statement' (or 'author bio').

In the former version of OJS the bio statement was featured after the abstract of each article. Now it's disappeard - but by adjusting 'Setup' - 'The Look' - '5.6 The Journal Layout' we can again place the bio statment in the right or the left sidebar.

However, the journal wants the bio statement to be placed along the abstract - just like it was before the update of the OJS version.

Can anyone tell me how to do that? And what is causing this problem?

Thanks :)

Best,
Claus

Hi Claus,

Hrm, I hadn't realized the bio statement had moved from the abstract entirely. You can re-add this information by modifying one of the system templates, but you'll have to track the change so that whenever you upgrade the change won't be destroyed. You can see how the information is displayed in the author bio block in the sidebar by looking at plugins/blocks/authorBios/block.tpl, and you should be able to extract the relevant code from that tpl file and add it to templates/article/article.tpl. Note, though, that you'll want to do it in such a way as to display the correct author information for each author, separately.

Cheers,
James
