We are finally beginning to implement some additional OCS functions. As mentioned in previous posts (by Javier), if possible, we'd like to implement the new functionalities based in plug-ins in case new versions of OCS are released. We've checked the available documentation and technical references (http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/docs/technicalref ... ugins.html
), however we are not sure if the proposed functionalities can be developed without changing the OCS source code.
We have some questions:
1. Would it be possible, by means of a plug-in, to add an option for Track Directors to accept/reject multiple abstracts using check boxes next to each abstract title?
2. Could the class methods which interact with the databases still be used from a plug-in?
3. Is there a method in for the controller "accept abstract"? Or does this controller interact directly with the model classes?
4. We would also like to add additional fields in some tables of the database, would it be possible to add these fields to the forms/reports without altering their source code?
Thanks in advance,
