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.

Hi there

Where or how do we upload style sheets for the site?

We know how to do that for the individual journals:

but not for this area:

Can you advise please?

Thanks and regards

Common style sheet

Postby kstranac » Thu Mar 30, 2006 11:16 am


You'll need to access the following stylesheet here:

/YOUR OJS DIRECTORY/styles/common.css

Change the elements on this style sheet and it will apply to common sections only, and will not overwrite changes made to individual journals.

Hi all,

There are a few other options for adding custom stylesheets, depending on the context you need to change.
  • If you want to change the look of a particular journal, go to Journal Setup, step 5, and upload a custom stylesheet.
  • If you want to change the look of a specific issue, you can upload an issue-specific stylesheet as Editor in Issue Data.
  • If you want to change the look of a single HTML article, you can do this as part of the Galley upload process.
  • If you want to change the look of the entire site, follow Kevin's instructions for modifying the site-wide common.css file.
