What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

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.

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 OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Reading tools stylesheet (rt.css)

Hi there,

We're wanting to change the font to 'Arial' in the H1 and H2 and have defined a font in the rt.css however nothing has changed once we have uploaded (see below). Have we missed something?

Hi Helen,

Are you using an older version of OJS? The Reading Tools CSS mistakenly wasn't included in older versions of OJS. Either upgrade to the newest release (currently OJS 2.1.1) or modify the styles/common.css main stylesheet again. (Alternately, feel free to override the default styles using a journal-specific stylesheet, which can be uploaded in Journal Settings step 5.)
