OJS and Tables in Templates

Postby actoninstitute » Fri Nov 11, 2011 11:43 am

I installed OJS and am very happy that this software exists. As I was reviewing it I was constantly saying "man, they thought of everything"!

That said, I'm a bit frustrated with the table structure throughout the templates. There are "separator" cells at the top and bottom of most tables. Why not let us use CSS to implement these sorts of things rather than embedding separators into the HTML templates? I'm in the process of removing them.

I can of course do a display:none on the elements, but it seems like this wasn't planned out that great. When you're adding padding and borders to table cells these separators are a real PITA and look really bad.

I guess this is more of a design thing. It seems like OJS would benefit from a CSS3/HTML5 face lift overall.

Thanks to all of the developers that work on this project!
