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.

We're starting a new open access media studies journal, HTML only, and I have managed to push a test article (http://journal.transformativeworks.org/ ... e/view/2/5) through the most recent version of the software to examine the results. I'm not the SysAdmin and I have only ftp privileges.

A couple questions:

1. In the right-hand Reading Tools bar, all the JavaScript links are broken and default to a 404. Where do I go to fix them? (The non-JS ones work fine.)

2. In Comments, if you don't enter a title, it elides the entry altogether and readers have to do a workaround to see the content. Is there some way to make it default to say "Comment" if the commenter doesn't input a title? That would then permit it to be hotlinked. The ability to comment is incredibly important to the readership and it must be intuitive and easy.

Thank you!

Hi Karen,

1. See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?p=7733#p7733 for a patch for the Reading Tools issue.

2. That's a new bug; thanks for reporting. There is a patch for this at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3171; the patch may not apply cleanly against OJS 2.1.1, as it was generated against pre-2.2 CVS, but it should be easy to port.
