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.

Hello,

We are using an multiple journal OJS 2.x instalation.

A Journal Manager of our system wants to create a page to store all the covers of the issues of his Journal. He wants to create a kind of gallery containg all covers from the issues he has already published. Is it possible to create a dynamic page where one can see these covers, and by clicking in a cover the user is send to the summary of that issue's covers.

Does anyone has already done something near to this?
Could anyone help us doing this?

Thanks all,
Renato

Hi Renato,

I'm not aware of anyone having done this before, but it would certainly be a good candidate for a plugin.

Hi Renato,

If you haven't had a look at the OJS Technical Reference, it's available from the Documentation section of the OJS website. Its current revision relates to OJS 2.1.1, but have not changed structurally for OJS 2.2. (We'll be updating this soon.)

If you want to create a cover gallery, you'll want to write a "generic" plugin (which will reside e.g. in plugins/generic/coverGallery in your OJS installation). Have a look at the counter plugin (plugins/generic/counter) as a general example of a plugin that introduces a new page.
