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.

"URL ... could not be copied to a local file"

Running into a problem with bulk importing the articles in the current issue using the XML Import template.
Error Message: A specified URL ... could not be copied to a local file.
Have uploaded all of the pdfs and html files in the issue to http://ojs.great-ideas.org/Encounter/
and referenced that location in the xml file line as follows:

<file><href mime_type="application/pdf"
src="http://ojs/great-ideas.org/Encounter/Encounter252.pdf" /> </file>

Any idea what the problem is? Is it possible that I should not be uploading that article files directly to ojs but rather to a non-ojs portion of our server?
