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.

Hi,
i just wanted to know how to change the welcome message in the very first home page that has the VIEW JOURNAL link at the bottom. i looked in the SETUP section in the Journal Management but there's no way to edit that description. i also checked in config.php but didn't find anything.
thank you very much,
Marco

Hi Marco,

What you want to be doing is a Site Manager function, not a Journal Manager function - although your issue does raise the point that this may be counter-intuitive. The way to access this is as follows:

- from the same page, click on "User Home"; this will take you to the site homepage
- from this page, click on "Site Administrator"; this will take you to the site manager page
- from this page, click on "Hosted Journals"; this will show a list of all journals on the site
- click "Edit" for the journal you want to edit, and you should see an area to modify the journal's description.

Hope this helps!

Hi all,

Thanks, MJ -- I'm not sure if the following note applies to your situation, Marco, but perhaps it's worth adding.

Typically for single-journal implementations, we recommend that you configure OJS to redirect directly to that journal when the home page is requested. You can configure this using the "Redirect" pull-down in the Site Administrator's "Site Settings" page.

Regards,
Alec Smecher
