Integrating OJS with Social Media

Postby thebigaym » Mon Apr 25, 2011 2:17 pm

I want people to easily share articles they like through Twitter, Facebook, etc. I've added the following HTML into

Home > User > Journal Management > Journal Setup
Step 5. Customizing the Look
5.4 Journal Page Footer

This is the footer of your journal. To change or update the footer, paste the HTML code in the textbox below. Examples could be another navigation bar, a counter, etc. This footer will appear on every page.

<!-- AddThis Button BEGIN --> <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style "><a class="addthis_button_facebook_like"></a> <a class="addthis_button_tweet"></a> <a class="addthis_counter addthis_pill_style"></a></div> <script type="text/javascript"><!--
var addthis_config = {"data_track_clickback":true};
// --></script> <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script> <!-- AddThis Button END --><br /> <a href="" target="_blank">Islamic Medical Association of North America</a> (IMANA) | <a href="" target="_blank">JIMA</a> and <a href="">IMANA</a> on Twitter<p>&nbsp;</p>

You can see how this looks at

Does anybody know of a better way to do this?

Hi thebigaym,

AddThis functionality has been included in more recent versions of OJS -- see this page in the Userguide, and more generally, Journal Management -> Reading Tools.
