Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

smarty tags not working

Postby johnkperks » Fri Nov 11, 2011 6:33 am


We have tried to customize the prepare e-mails however some of those smarty tags do not work.For example, in the director assignment e-mail we use the following format:
Code: Select all
Paper Title: "{$paperTitle}"
Conference: {$schedConfName}

Kindly assign 2 Reviewers for the above paper latest by  {$weekLaterDate}.

You can manage the review process by clicking on the following link:
Your Username for this conference is: {$directorUsername}

However, the tag {$weekLaterDate} appears as is and does not convert into a date. similar issues are seen with some other e-mails too where in tags {$locationCity} and {$conferenceDate} don't convert as desired. Please help.

Hi John,

Unfortunately, not all tags are available to all prepared emails -- and it's not very easy to tell which tags are available in which email. We do have a long-standing bug report that will hopefully address this soon when resolved. Please feel free to CC yourself to that report for future updates.
