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.

Problems with download of files from Public Folder Browser

Hey all

We have started uploading pdf's and other file types in the Public Folder Browser, so that we can link to these files from some of the journal pages. The intention is to grant people who are not logged into the system access to the reports and other files.

However, there is a problem. You have to be logged into the system as a Journal Manager if you want to be able to download files. If you login as a Reader, Author or Editor you cannot have access to the files.

Does anyone know why this is? :?

We started using the Public Files Browser because it is a "web-accessible" area - whereas the original File Browser navigates within the submission folder.

Thanks :)

Hi Claus,

See viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3980&start=0 for information on how to configure the Files Browser to upload publicly-available files.
