What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Unable to use Alternate Header

Postby Califer » Tue Sep 17, 2013 3:48 pm

One of my journal managers set up some rather detailed stuff in the 5.2 "Additional Content" section of the Journal Setup. They then wanted to do something similar with all the other pages. Unfortunately, no matter what we put in the 5.3 "Alternate Header" section nothing shows up on any of the other pages. Is there a setting we need to change to make it use the Alternate Header?

This would be the easiest to use since they could update it without me having to put in the changes in the code every time they change something, but in case we just can't use the "Alternate Header" for some reason, would I just put the requested HTML in a smarty template?

Currently using OJS

Here is the journal in question, in case that helps matters at all.

Hi Califer,

Before we start debugging, I'd suggest upgrading your OJS to a newer release; OJS 2.2.2 is now 5 years old and rather out of date.
