Taking Reading tools off just for abstracts

Postby selahi » Thu Sep 20, 2007 1:49 am

Dear all,

I am trying to take Reading Tools off when a user is viewing abstract but not when actuall artcile is being viewed. I know I can disable RT but that doesn't serve my purpose because it disables the RT totally. I tried to look into templates but couldn't find where /article/view.tpl (which I think renders rt) is being called in /article/article.tpl (which shows the content)... so that I could remove this call or could develop another template without that call to show abstract.

Anyways I actually want to ask how to disable RT only for abstract not for full article view, through changing something in template or hanlder classes?
Best regards,

Hi Salman,

You'll need to modify pages/article/ArticleHandler.inc.php to accomplish this. Find the line in the "view" function that looks like:

Code: Select all

if (!$journalRt->getEnabled()) {
...and change it to...

Code: Select all

if (!$journalRt->getEnabled() || !$galley) {
