Hello all,

It would be nice if the files browser allowed either administrator or journal manager to create folders at OJS root level, allowing to upload custom images and files easier access.
This would help editors upload other images, document templates for authors, etc, withouth needing a technical support.

Maybe the sysAdmin could create the folder for the journal, if requested, and then Journal manager uploads files to that custom folder, for security reasons.

Deferring -- 2.3 is already in testing.

Hello all, 

A user has reported the following problem, using a/the Public Folder Browser Plugin:
1 - Cannot move plugin blocks to the left side. They are always displayed on the right side bar.

OJS version:
URL: http://www.infodesign.org.br/revista/index.php/infodesign/index
The journal has the custom blocks plugin and the rounded corners plugin enabled, but I don't think these would cause those problems.

Is this the same plugin listed on the forum's Plugin Gallery?
URL: http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=5947&p=22687&hilit=browser+plugin#p22687

We've tested on 2.2.4 and the plugin works fine, we can move it around the sides.
One suggestion is to add an example of URL for the user, if not already added.

Ramon, if you're able to link this specifically to the Public Folder Browser Plugin, i.e. if removing the plugin causes things to behave normally, I'd suggest following up at [url]http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=5947[/url]; that plugin wasn't written by us and we don't maintain it.
