Pre-defined keyword list

Postby Khewett » Tue Sep 24, 2013 2:10 pm

A client is requesting that keywords used for paper submissions come exclusively from a pre-defined list, with a maximum of five keywords to a paper (instead of the current 'write-in' textbox). I've been trying to find a method or a plugin that will allow this, but I haven't had any luck.

Is there a way to modify the paper submission process to work this way? I have a tenuous grasp of PHP and MYSQL, but I'm unsure where to begin and I'm worried I would just break something. Am I better off hiring someone to make this modification?

Hi Khewett,

You're of course free to set up a local installation and tinker with it -- with no fear of breaking the production install -- but I suspect it'll take more than a tinkerer's level of experience. There are a few threads about this on the forum ("controlled vocabularies") but nothing finished.

Thank you so much for the response!

Would it be possible to hire someone to develop a plugin like this? If so, where should I look?

Hi Khewett,

There's the Consulting, Employment, and Volunteer Opportunities forum; we also offer our own consulting & development services; and since it's a LAMP application, a good PHP developer ought to be able to work with it, though there will be something of a learning curve for people who haven't worked with PKP software before.
