OCS contents in offline mode

Postby el_tim » Thu Mar 26, 2009 10:25 am

I work in a big private Portugal University. We use OJS tou our cientific journals and its great!
But now the problem is with something else:
I have conference contents (pdf documents, about 500) to give to all the people who comes to the conference in usb pen's. Is it possible to give those contents in some kind of offline OCS? or is there a software which gives the same information OCS gives about the documents and that can be accessible in offline mode (in a usb pen)?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Timóteo,

There are a number of tools you can use to download websites to view offline--Try Scrapbook, a Firefox plugin, for instance. I don't think this has been done by anyone before for OCS/OJS, but it seems like it would work fine to me, perhaps with some tinkering of the HTML to take out links to dynamic content/forms.

First of all, thanks for the quick answer to my problem.

yes, i just downloaded the firefox add on that you mentioned, i'll definitely try . Yesterday i tried to use the black widow software but didn't work as i expected (probably i didn't work on it enough). But i'll try both again.

Once again thank you!
