For the past few weeks I have been experimenting with OJS and have found it to be quite user friendly. However, saying that, there are a few problems I have encountered which the IT "experts" in our institution are unable to answer for me. So without further adieu, here they are.
1. Not liking the formatting and design associated with the right side bars, I made changes on the roundedcorners.css file and then uploaded the new version using Step 5 as Journal Manager. However, the changes I wanted to occur never came to fruition. Moreover, when I "saved" the webpage using my browser and took a look at the roundedcorners.css file that was downloaded, I saw that it was the original and not the one I changed.
Also, when I clicked on the link in Step 5 which had the name of the uploaded css file, I notice that it has been renamed journalStyleSheet. Lo and behold, when I took a look at the folder that was downloaded when I saved the page through my web browser, I saw the newly named file. My question is, where is this file - now called "journalStyleSheet" located. Furthermore, why did it not supercede the instructions being initiated by the original roundedcorners.css. file? Am I doing something wrong?
2. I have found that within the online journal I have set up, many of the internal links are not operating properly. For example, clicking on the "For Readers," in the right hand menu, one is taken to a page where there are two links within the contents of the text. No matter how I try to change the links, the program changes them to relative URLs. Unfortunately, these relative URLs drop part of the actual URL - namely the journal path name "cpi" which comes after index.php. I have tried to change this through OJS from the Journal Manager - Journal Set Up - The Look - Section 5.7 Information, using the break link and insert link method. I have also tried to work directly with the HTML coding itself and even tried cutting and pasting the text using the Word function. Regardless what I do, the program changes the links to relative ones. ie.
href="../about/submissions#privacyStatement" rather than what I typed in which was http://webapps2.universityxyz.ca/~willi ... yStatement
. Moreover, when a person hovers over the privacy link in the Reader section, the "abc" after the index.php is missing.
If anyone can shed some light on these two issues, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
