Adding new item/link in Information Block

Postby karnovae » Wed Feb 19, 2014 5:23 pm


We have OJS installed and been running for almost 2 years now. The journal manager request to add a new link/item in Information Block, i.e. "For Editors". I've add some lines of code in InformationBlockPlugin.inc.php, block.tpl, ./information/index.php, and InformationHandler.php. But the new link doesn't show up. Does anybody know how to modify (add new link/item) Information Block? Thanks.

Hi Daniel,

Unless you've modified the wrong part of the template file or something, the most likely cause is file permissions in your templates/t_cache directory. If those aren't set correctly, OJS won't be able to recompile the templates when it needs to.
