supplementary files and images

Postby Dragone » Thu Mar 13, 2008 7:45 am

Hi to all
I have three questions about supplementary files and images
My ojs version is OJS 2.2

1. I have to add some supplementary files (mp3) to some html articles
- I have enabled the unique identifiers in setup 4.3
- I have uploaded my files in "supplementary files" (of an html article)
- I have written
Code: Select all
<a href="ojs://suppfile/(article id)/(file id)">xxxx</a>

in my html file
and all works
My question is: is there an easier way to link supplementary files to an html file?
I have a lot of supplemetary files and that way seems to me very intricate
Furthermore I have to invent the unique identifier because my journal doesn't use it

2. I have noticed that in the html files the code
Code: Select all
<a href="ojs://suppfile/(article id)/(file id)">xxxx</a>

was replated whith the absolute url http://myurl/xxx/(article id)/(file id)
But, if I change the url of my installation (because I change server, ecc)
the url in the html file will automatically change or not?

3. Where can I set up the available file format for the images in the galley?

Thanks in advance for your help
Daniela

Hi Daniela,

We've been receiving multiple queries regarding uploading non-image-based media files with HTML galleys; in light of that, I've submitted a feature request, which you can view here:

http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3303

No guarantee if or when this would be considered, but keep an eye on it just the same.

Regarding question 2: I believe the absolute URL is generated on the fly, and not changed in the HTML file you've uploaded; so, provided you have a similar setup on the other server, you shouldn't have a problem.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by question 3: would you be able to expand further?

Thanks,
James

Hi Gabriela,

There's also another way you can add images, detailed here in point 2:

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1553&p=4739

Linking to files within OJS using "ojs://"-type linking isn't well-documented at the moment, but hopefully it will be soon.

Cheers,
James

Thanks for your help

so, untill the resolution of the bug http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3303

which is the best way to upload MP3 files to an html galley?

Another question:
When I upload a html galley I can upload images in the "Images" box. But, what type of images can be uploaded
(bmp, gif, jpg, ecc....)?
where can I set up the type of images can be uploaded in the galley?

Thanks again
Daniela

Hi Daniela,

I believe the allowed formats are: .gif, .jpg, or .png

I don't think you can change these formats unless you do quiet a bit of coding to change the code where it checks for these image types.

I will double check for you however to make sure.

Regards,
smiri

Hi Daniela,

The best approach would probably be to upload these files as Supplementary Files -- using a particular format of URL in your HTML (e.g. ojs://suppfile/[articleId]/[suppFileId]), you can link to them without having to hard-code a particular URL. Custom identifiers for articles and supplementary files come in handy here as you won't know the database IDs in advance.
