I started this topic some months ago: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4682&p=18218#p18218
Now, I must do something to ease my work on editing groups. We handle some 10 journals, and the editorial team changes (minor changes) every six months. Just today I had to add 13 new members to a journals, and them go one by one to place then in the correct order. I lost almost 1 hour oh work just for that.
My idea is as follows, on the manager side, a plugin/template/class/patch/etc handles the page manager/groupMembership
and add radio button with two choices:- Use Members
- Use Content
The first choice acts as it is today, the second on enables a Memo field (like many others where you can add text and edit HTML) where you type whatever you want in it.
Then, on the reader side (page about/editorialTeam
) the plugin checks the flag, if set just display the HTML under the group title otherwise act as usual.
So far, I don't see how to do that with plugins without changing/patching the source code of OJS.
Any suggestions? Also, if someone is experienced on OJS Development and want to help me do that I would be very thankful.
