online submissions text

Postby MarieNyst » Fri Aug 16, 2013 8:56 am


I apologize if there is any tutorials about this but I cannot find a way to change the "online submissions" text on "about" section.

this one :
Already have a Username/Password for -my journal name-?

Need a Username/Password?

Registration and login are required to submit items online and to check the status of current submissions.

I didn't find anything in configuration menu.

Thank you

Hi Marie,

The text that's built into OJS can be modified by finding and editing the appropriate locale file. In this case, the text is in locale/en_US/locale.xml:

Code: Select all

<message key="about.onlineSubmissions.registrationRequired">Registration and login are required to submit items online and to check the status of current submissions.</message>
For other text, look for the strings you want to change in locale/en_US/*.xml and lib/pkp/locale/en_US/*.xml; there are other files as well, but mostly for plugin content.
