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.

Invalid homepage header title image format or upload failed

Hi

In the conference homepage header section, I am able to upload jpgs and gifs but not pngs. The error message is:

Invalid homepage header title image format or upload failed. Accepted formats are .gif, .jpg, or .png.

The phpinfo output is here

http://semiofest.com/phpinfo.php

Any help appreciated. This is rather urgent as I have to have the web site up and running as soon as possible.

Hello makemywish,

This is most likely a problem in the server's mime_type configuration.
Check for the mime.types or mime.magic files (one is for Apache, which is easier to configure) and add the .png format.
Search this forum for mime.type or mime_magic, or any other combination.
You'll find plenty of related topics here and Google.

Hi Ramon

Thanks for the response.

I added the following

1 string PNG image/png

to mime.magic

located in usr/local/apache/conf/

and restarted apache.

Problem solved.

Thanks very much

Can anyone tell me what the dimensions are for the header or banner? Since the text wraps we're creating a banner for our header and need to figure out the dimensions. We're tried several sizes and no such luck.
