Generating Certificates Authors/Board in PDF

Postby sergiobm » Mon Oct 14, 2013 5:21 pm


I would like to know if is it possible to have a way to generate a PDF on the fly, by using OJS? My university uses OJS to hosting their papers and also some conferences. They asked me to find a way to generate a certificate in PDF automatically from OJS, I mean, depends on the user logged, and their role, we could have a way to allow them to print a participant certification. Is that feasible?

Hi Sérgio,

That would require custom development -- but actually not a tremendous amount of it. If you have someone on hand who can write PHP, the libgd library built into most installations of PHP can do the required image manipulation.
