Implementing non-OJS content

Postby gbnitram » Sat May 05, 2007 11:13 am

In my OJS it is necessary to add some content that works outside OJS. I am wondering how to make the transition from OJS- and non-OJS-content invisible. Therefore, as I see it, I can either make additions in the OJS source code with the extra content or make a brand new site that copies the OJS design / uses it's style sheets. Does this make sense? OJS doesn't have a standard-option for this problem, right?

I am inclined to prefer the second option. Is that a good idea and does anyone have experience with this?

I hope this makes sense, but I am still in the planning phase so my ideas are still a bit hazy...

Thank you!

Hi gbnitram,

If possible, I'd suggest importing your back-issues (e.g. using the import/export tools and plugins/importexport/native/native.dtd); this will take some expertise in XML. Alternately, you can use the Expedite feature, which is described in other discussions in this forum (try searching for "expedite").
