* mysite.com/ojs/index.php/test_journal/about/editorialTeam
* I need to add some static text in the above url (i.e. add editorial commitees below editors, in the main content body) for one particular journal.
* Is it possible to do without modifing the smarty template? (My sys admin doesn't want me to modify the core)

* Can I do it with a plugin?
* Is it possible to modify just for 1 journal?

When I entered the URL you provided into my browser, it returned a 404 Page Not Found error. Because I'm not able to view your Web site, I'm not entirely certain what you are trying to accomplish and what problems you are encountering. OJS has the ability in the Masthead Configuration to add various kinds of users to the existing Editorial Team page, such as sections with users listed for Managing Editor, Editor in Chief, Editorial Board. It also has the ability to create additional pages linked from the About page beneath the Editorial Team link, such as Editorial Board Members, Reviewers, etc. What the title is for these additional sections is complete customizable because it is populated from a free form text field. For more information on how to configure your masthead, you can view a tutorial at mysite.com/ojs/index.php/test_journal/about/editorialTeam. If this information does not help you solve the issue, please provide me with more information about your needs, and I will try to assist you further.

All best,
Vanessa Gabler
