I wanted to upload my changed stylesheet from the Web interface, but I get the following error message. My file name HAS the extension .css

The images load without problem.

Home > User > Journal Management > Journal Setup
Step 5. Customizing the Look

* 5. The Look

Errors occurred processing this form:

* Invalid journal stylesheet format. Accepted format is .css.

Hi renatem,

As you might expect, OJS is having trouble determining the type of file you've uploaded. There are a number of posts in this forum discussing how to debug the problem -- search for mime_content_type -- but the most frequent fix, if your server is set up properly, is to remove any comments at the beginning of the CSS file. Comments at the beginning confuse the file type detection process.
