Remove "Online submission"

Postby geirrosset » Mon Feb 10, 2014 3:17 am

Hello

Our journals' editors don't use OJS for submissions, and having that field under "About" just causes confusion and extra work as we have to tell authors that they can't use it after they complain that they are unable to register. Is there an easy way for us to just remove that section from the "Submissions" page, and remove the link to it from the "About" page.

Hi Geir,

Sure. You can remove the case titled 'submissons' from pages/about/index.php as well as the method called submissions() from the AboutHandler class in the same directory. You can also remove the link from the template itself, in templates/about/index.tpl and then just delete the submissions.tpl template also.

Really, though, removing or commenting out the link is probably enough.

Regards,
Jason

Thanks

I commented out the link from index.tpl. That removed the link (see 01b.jpg), but clicking on any of the other links brings up the screen in 02b.jpg and "Online Submissions" is still listed at the top. Renaming submissions.tpl to submissions.old causes none of the links to work as it brings up a blank page. Any ideas?

Hi Geir,

Yes, you will also need to remove the link from the other templates in the templates/about/ directory. The menu is not included separately. Just renaming the template file will create a blank page because Smarty can no longer find the template it is trying to load.

Regards,
Jason
