Hello welcome to module 14 of setting up
a journal with OJS 3.0 the static pages plug-in. Static pages are additional HTML
content pages that are not part of the basic OJS package, but will become part
of your website if, for example, you wanted to add an information page about
an upcoming conference, this tool would provide you with the capability to do so.
To activate static pages, login to your dashboard through the top right corner
of your journal home page. Hover over settings in the left
navigation and select website. From the new frame, click on plugins in
the tabs. Static pages is in your install plugins
library and you can find it either by using the search bar, or by scrolling
down to the generic plugins section and finding it in the list. To activate static pages, tick the box. A new expansion arrow will appear beside
the plug-in name. Click on it to expose the add and edit content button. Click on edit/add content Activating static pages has created a
new tab along the top of the website settings section of your dashboard and
you will be able to access your static pages through this tab going forward. To
create a new page, click on add static page at the top of the table. The path is
the text that will be used to create the permanent URL of this page and we
recommend using, when naming, best practices of a brief alphanumeric series
of characters in lowercase with no spaces and no special characters. The title of the page is what will
appear in your web browser tab or window head and depending on the layout will
also appear at the top of the page. The content box is a rich text editor
into which you can enter your page content. Use the preview button at the
bottom of the page to view how your content will look once published to your
web page. When you’re satisfied, click Save
you’ll see your new page has been added to the table of live static pages.
Clicking on the path hyperlink will redirect you to the page on your website.
Clicking on the expansion arrow beside the title exposes the edit and delete
buttons. Pages can be added, edited and deleted at any time through this page.
Thanks for watching and we’ll see you again in the next module.
