inserting web link into presentation abstract?

Postby paulmn » Tue Nov 20, 2007 11:27 am

hi

we have a need to allow users to insert a weblink into their abstracts during the submission process. (the web links are links to their individual Adobe Presenter URLs) How do they create that hyperlink within the abstract? Just copy/pasting from a word document does not work.

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Hi Paul,

You can enter limited HTML tags into the abstract field, e.g.:

Code: Select all

This is the first sentence of the abstract. <a href="http://some-url-goes-here">This is a link.</a> This is the last sentence of the abstract.
Obviously, this requires a bit of know-how on the submitter's part (or the Editor's part, if they are put in charge of formatting the Abstract before it is made available); the solution we've used in OJS is to add support for TinyMCE, which is a small WYSIWYG editor that allows you to enter links and format text without needing any HTML experience.

TinyMCE is supported in OJS via a plug-in, and we'll be porting that support over to OCS for the next release.

Regards,
