Style sheets for site settings

Postby Bobby » Tue Mar 28, 2006 2:27 pm

Hi there

Where or how do we upload style sheets for the site?

We know how to do that for the individual journals:

but not for this area:

Can you advise please?

Thanks and regards

Common style sheet

You'll need to access the following stylesheet here:

/YOUR OJS DIRECTORY/styles/common.css

Change the elements on this style sheet and it will apply to common sections only, and will not overwrite changes made to individual journals.

Hi all,

There are a few other options for adding custom stylesheets, depending on the context you need to change.
  • If you want to change the look of a particular journal, go to Journal Setup, step 5, and upload a custom stylesheet.
  • If you want to change the look of a specific issue, you can upload an issue-specific stylesheet as Editor in Issue Data.
  • If you want to change the look of a single HTML article, you can do this as part of the Galley upload process.
  • If you want to change the look of the entire site, follow Kevin's instructions for modifying the site-wide common.css file.
