Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Large Issue - Reorder Articles

Postby lking » Tue Feb 01, 2011 12:47 pm

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to make this issue for the user.

I have customer where they have a very large issue they are about to publish. They a working on the order of the articles all 400 of them and haven't found an easy way to re-order the articles in there various sections.

The only way they have found to do this is by using the up and down arrow keys to the far right of the screen. Is there a quicker and easy way to reorder all these articles rather than having to click through each one of them and move it up or down to its appropriate spot?

Hi lking,

Having to use the up and down arrows for so many articles would take a lot of time. In the newest versions of OJS (2.3.3-3 for sure, and I'd assume 2.3.4 too) you can 'drag-and-drop' articles or issues into whatever order you want. This would be a lot faster for you.
