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.

Public access and payment

Hi,

I have created a journal which has public access to view abstracts. If an unregistered user wants to download the article, he should be sent to a payment page. Is there a hook that I can use to capture a request for download?

Hi Nirav,

I'd suggest having a look at the CVS version of OJS, which will be released as OJS 2.2 very soon. I don't recommend using it on a production system, although it is very close to release, but if it suits your needs you'll save a lot of custom coding by waiting for it to be completed. We're hoping to release it this month.

There's information on accessing CVS in docs/README-CVS of your current distribution.

Hi Alec,

We already have OJS installed on a server from the tarball. Can I just copy the payment modules separately from CVS into the old version and expect it to work?

Hi Nirav,

No, unfortunately -- an enormous amount of new code has gone into OJS 2.2, including a lot of support for the payment modules to hook into.
