create categories

Postby sheardln » Thu Jan 23, 2014 1:30 pm

Our editor want submitters to select from one of four categories when they submit their manuscript. He then wants that category to be shown in the record for the article. The closest I have found is sections, which seems to do exactly what we want except for the name. Any suggestions on what I can do? Can I rename sections?

Hi sheardln,

To rename sections, you'll need to modify the English-language text that comes with OJS. This is distributed in the form of several XML files -- look in locale/en_US and lib/pkp/locale/en_US for these files. (Make sure to change only the contents of the tags, not their names.)
