Getting a "volume number" and "issue" number from issueid

Postby tarek » Tue Oct 19, 2010 6:36 pm

Hello all,

I am having some tremendous success with the rolling TOC that I've finally had the chance to work on. One interesting issue remains: I can't derive the Volume and Issue numbers.

The goal is to have it look like:

Vol. 4(1) (for example)

The code I used:

Code: Select all
Vol. {$issue->getVolume($article->getIssueId())}({$issue->getNumber($article->getIssueId())})

Predictably, $issue->getVolume() actually takes no notice of what's inside the brackets. I also tried to set the issue with $issue->setIssueId($article->getIssueId()) before executing the above, but - unsurprisingly - that didn't work either.

Before I create a new function akin to getVolume, am I missing something?

Oops. I just noticed this got posted to OCS Development. I'll repost to OJS Development. Please ignore this thread.
