Keywords: limited space?

Postby ivolt » Mon May 26, 2014 7:17 am

I have articles that have more keywords than the system allows for the keyword field, also keywords in multiple languages. Is there a way to solve this problem, i.e let the system allow more space for keywords?

Hi ivolt,

What version of OJS are you using?

I am not the site admin for this journal so I can't be absolutely sure, but the page journal/about/aboutThisPublishingSystem says it's 2.3.8.0.

Hi Ivo,

That's an older version and you should consider upgrading -- but I don't believe the aspect of OJS you're asking about has changed. The length limitation is just in the HTML markup, so if you (or your administrator) modify the submission form to remove the maxlength="255" attribute from templates/author/submit/step3.tpl (this is the author's Step 3 submission area), and likewise for templates/submission/metadata/metadataEdit.tpl (the metadata edit form), the restriction should be removed.

Thank you, I will try this. I think, however, that this could be changed by default in the next releases.
