Arbitrary sorting of TOC

Postby sqro » Fri Feb 07, 2014 4:24 am

At this moment for the readers OJS sorts TOC of an issue grouped by the section. Is there any way to get it sorted in different way - like by page number or even better in an arbitrary order as it can be seen by the editor?
I have two sections - regular papers and journalism.
I have editorial at the beginning of the issue - journalism
Some regular scientific papers in the middle
At the end of the issue I have a list of reviewers for the whole year - journalism again
And this is intender order for the TOC - sadly both journalism class paper are grouped in TOC so i have an intro and outro blocked in illogical way

Sorry if this was already discussed -I googled and did not find.

regards and again thanks for the Team for great work You are doing

Hi sqro,

If you'd like to display content in a way that has the same section repeating several times, then you'll need to consider a code modification. The function to look at is in classes/article/ and it's called "getPublishedArticlesInSections"; as you can see from the SQL query there, the sorting is hard-coded to section sequence (a combination of global and issue-specific issue sorting) and article sequence (used to order articles within sections).

Thank You for reply - well i won't decide to modify the code - I didt it once with joomla and later applying patches was a little bit complicated.
