Hi naory,

You'll need to make template modifications to do this. We use the Smarty template engine for templates, so information on their syntax is available at http://www.smarty.net.

For the about pages, you'll need to look at templates in the templates/about directory.

Hello Alec, Like naory, I'd like to make changes to the About page For instance, I'd like to nest a new page "Affiliates" under the "People" Section of the About page. Does the recommendation to modify the templates still hold for this case? If so, could you give more detail on where/what it entails to modify the templates. Specifically where should I look for them? I was a bit mystified looking through cpanel. Your advice would be most appreciated. Thanks MSJ

Hi msengulj,

The easiest thing to do will be to modify the templates; look in templates/about. A more maintainable approach, though more complex, would be to write a plugin; this is less likely to give you grief during upgrades.

Hi Alec, thanks for the response. I'm wondering if you could give more specificity on *how* to edit the templates, and which templates to edit. I see many templates on the file manager (see attachment) could you advise which one to edit and where to make the edits? I have basic understanding of html. I also am not sure how to use Smarty Templates, is this an html editor? Thanks in advance for your advice on this. MSJ

Hi msengulj,

I'd suggest having a look at the OJS Technical Reference. For information on Smarty templates, check out the Smarty 2 manual.
