Forum rules
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.

Uploading image for journal page

I'm trying to upload an image for use as a journal's homepage content, but I consistently get the error that the image is in an invalid format. I've converted the image to all three accepted formats without success, and I've also tried different directories on my HD (c:\ won't even work), since I thought that perhaps spaces in the path could be a problem. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

Hi pfhoenix,

OJS uses PHP's "mime_content_type" function to determine file types; it sounds like that function isn't properly configured. Search this forum for mime_content_type for previous discussions on the subject.
