Why the page footer doesn't appear at Site level?

Postby Ojser » Thu May 17, 2012 6:32 am

Hi,

I set a page footer, which I can see on all journal pages but not on the Site page. I would like to see it too in the Site webpage. Is there any way to display it also on the Site web page?

Thank you

Regards,
Ojser

Hi Ojser,

Are you using an OJS installation with only a single journal in it? If so, try using journal redirecting, which is available in the Site Administrator's Site Settings page. This will make the site-wide pages redirect directly to the pages for your single journal and thus the journal footer will apply.

Thank you Alec.
I'm talking about the site level (with more than one journal). Apparently, the footer is not applied in the site webpage.
I think it would be a good idea to make it applicable to the main OJS installation site. Is there a simple way to apply it or it will need some codes?

Ojser

Hi Ojser,

There is currently no setting for a site-wide footer; the easiest way to apply it is probably to edit lib/pkp/templates/common/footer.tpl. The {$pageFooter} tag is what gets replaced by the journal footer, when one is available; if you change that to contain the footer content you want to display everywhere, then it'll appear regardless of whether you're viewing a particular journal.

It seems to me that many of the options for the site level of the OJS install seem to be disabled. Why is this?

So much work has gone into providing this functionality for the individual journal that it seems silly to me for them not to be available at the main site level.

Hi Ed,

See http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8796. (It's easier for us if you don't double-post.)
