Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

There currently is no feature of which I'm aware that would accomplish placing a Web counter displaying the number of visitors on your site. This is something that would have to be developed by someone.

All best,

Hi eseadmin,

I'm guessing you're looking at a third-party counter tool that provides you with the code to embed in your website. The surest way to embed that in OJS is to determine what template you want to place it on -- most likely the journal homepage, which is in templates/index/journal.tpl -- and putting it between {literal}{/literal} tags to prevent accidental interpretation of the contents as Smarty tags.
