Editing Layout & Look of the site

Postby seunm » Thu Nov 01, 2012 8:18 am

hi :-) I noticed that the Blake Journal (http://blake.lib.rochester.edu/blakeojs/index.php/blake) uses a totally different layout for their ojs website. Namely the identical top and bottom menus. Lack of side menus. Search box next to the logo. Thumbnails shown on the 'Upcoming' etc.

What did they have to edit to achieve this look please?

I tried to edit the CSS files but could not find a place to change the location of page items.

I would be so grateful for any help.

Warm regards,

Seun

Hi Seun,

comparing the HTML source of the Blake journal's homepage and the OJS templates, I think they've changed the sequence of objects and introduced some new code through editing the templates.

The templates of OJS are written in the Smarty template language (you'll find info and tutorials here: http://www.smarty.net/). A template that is very significant for the ordering of header and sidebar content is located in /lib/pkp/templates/common/header.tpl. That would probably be a good starting point if you want to restructure your OJS site layout.

Greetings,
Kai
