OJS Light version

Postby dekii » Fri Dec 19, 2008 7:19 am

Hi all!

I need some kind of light version of OJS - Author can register and submit paper and nothing more... I dont need all other functionalities because I have other journal system (PHP-MySQL). What you think...can I change some parameters, change code and get what I need?

Thanks.

Hi dekii,

Since OJS is open source software, you are more than welcome to download and modify the code to get what you need. You may find that it will work well as it stands -- you can try using only the author submission step, for example, and ignore the rest of the software if you want. Of course, you will still need to have authors register with the system to submit.

Cheers,
James

Thank you very much... I am not sure how to show/hide some links (menu on the right side for example). In documentation I didnt find any information about it.

Hi dekii,

To hide the right navigation bar, take a look at Journal Setup Step 5.6. For the top navigation bar, you'll have to edit template files directly.

Cheers,
James
