Forum rules
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.

Customizing look with images

Postby ramon » Mon Dec 04, 2006 1:47 pm

Dear OJSers,

I'm trying to customize some of the content of an OJS 2.1.1 installation, adding some images to the footer area in Configuration > Layout.
Unfortunately, any images sent to the Document Navigator are only viewed by logged users, so that is useless.

How would the Manager do this if access to the server is not available??

I would recommend, if possible, to allow changing the permissions to a folder created in the document navigator.

Hi Ramón,

We'll eventually merge the public files directory into the private files directory, only the latter of which can currently be accessed using the Files Browser. In the meantime, some users have been able to circumvent this lack of access by creating a symbolic link to the public files directory from the private files directory. Once this is done, the files browser can upload files into the public files directory.
