PKP and Wordpress Integration

Postby mcrider » Mon Aug 20, 2012 6:45 pm

Hi folks,

To anyone interested, I just remembered that I forgot post about some of the recent work I've done with integrating OJS journals into a Wordpress installation (i.e., using wordpress as a Front-end for a journal, not the other way around which has been done also). I've modified the REST plugin to allow this and also hacked up a Wordpress plugin for that end. Full instructions can be found here:

Very good!! From this point of view, I need create a domain for my portal. For example, a domain called examplejournals.com, wordpress, with instructions, videos, documentation, etc. This domain would use information from OJS Portal, listing all journals and their descriptions in front page of wordpress. Is this the right way for that?

Hi Luciano,

Yes, this plugin could be used to integrate OJS articles into your Wordpress install like that.

Cheers,
Matt

This might be interesting!
Does it mean that we will have the OJS interface in wordpress installation?
If so, it really will be useful to take advantage of WordPress simplicity and easiness.
Anyway, I downloaded the zipped files in your links, and I tried to install them in WordPress as any other plugin, but had an error message:
Code: Select all
The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.
Plugin install failed.


Am I doing well?
Are your plugins intended to work that way other plugins work in WordPress, or there is special config?
How OJS will work with WordPress?
Could you please give more information about this issue? I'm very interested to migrate to WordPress while keeping the layout and function of OJS.
A hybrid of OJS and WordPress will be an excellent tool, to take advantage of both CMS in one tool!

Hi Ojser,

I wasn't actually aware you could install plugins by uploading them through the admin interface, I was just putting them in the wp-content/plugins/ directory. You can do that (unzip the plugin and put it in the wp-content/plugins/ directory). But I've updated the plugin on github and you should be now be able to install it through the wordpress admin panel (just redownload the zip file).

Cheers,
Matt

Dear Matt--

Your instructions for installation of the ojs-import WordPress plugin say:
In your Wordpress admin page go to Settings -> ojs import
In the ‘Data source’ field, enter the URL to your REST plugin. If your journal is located at http://journals.sfu.ca/paideusis this url would be http://journals.sfu.ca/paideusis/index. ... llArticles.
This is the only method for the REST plugin that currently works with the Wordpress import plugin. More will come in the future (e.g. importing by issue or importing announcements)

In Wordpress still, go to Tools -> ojs import and click on the ‘Import from OJS’ button.


I installed and activated the ojs-import WordPress plugin in MU WordPress 3.5. However, I do not see the plugin in the Settings. I do not see it in Tools/Import either. I cleaned all caches but it did not help. Also, I checked MySQL wordpress tables and I cannot see any new table. Any suggestions, please?

Thanks,

Eugene

Hi dioscuri,

Currently that would require custom development.

Hi Alec,

As told by Matt in his document.

1. Installed Wordpress and OJS-2.4.4-1.

2. Then installed REST Plugin in OJS -> Generic plugin and activated.

3.Then installed "mcrider-ojs-import-041427e" Plugin in Wordpress and activated.

After this I am unable to do anything. B'coz not getting in my Wordpress admin page -> Settings -> ojs import and In Wordpress -> Tools -> ojs import and ‘Import from OJS’ button.

Thanks in advance,
aishshub

Hi Ashish,

James here. I had tried Matt's plugin a year or so ago, and it didn't appear to be working then. We don't have a huge amount of Wordpress expertise on the team currently to evaluate and maintain it, and honestly, I don't think it's the best integration option available. I've written up a short document on integration options, which you can see here:

http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php?title= ... ntegration

My personal preference is to use OJS' RSS feed option to feed into a Wordpress RSS widget. That way, the content still lives in OJS properly, and can take advantage of OJS' Google Scholar and other indexing services; but you can still promote your content via your Wordpress site.

Cheers,
James
