Change the look of the "People" section in "About the Journa

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

Change the look of the "People" section in "About the Journa

Hi again,

We also need to change the "People" section in "About the Journal". Our journal has some specific needs in regard to contacts. Therefore we'd like to arrange the contacts like Canadian Journal of Communication (http://www.cjc-online.ca/index.php/jour ... t/contact#) has done it. But how do we do that?

Thanks - and I'm sorry about my rusty english :D

Best,
Claus

Hi Claus,

You can achieve this by either (a) entering the additional information that you need displayed into the Mailing Address field in Setup => Step 1 (Details) or by (b) directly modifying the contact template: templates/about/contact.tpl

Please note that if you go with route (b), you'll need to apply your changes to the template each time you upgrade OJS. This can be done by saving a patch that contains the diff of the modified file relative to the stock version that ships with OJS.

Cheers,
Michael

Hi Claus,

A third approach would be to create a static page using the Static Pages plugin and modify the main About page (templates/about/index.tpl) and change the Contact link to point to this new static page.

As with (b) you'll need to apply your changes to the modified template each time you upgrade OJS.

Cheers,
Michael
