Get issue id in page - options "Current issue"

Is it possible to in smarty tpl to get issue id which set in backend “Current Issue”?


Thanks in advance!

Hi @E-GOR,

  2. Can you tell us which version of OJS you’re using?

Best regards,

// Get the journal
$context = Application::get()->getRequest()->getContext();

// Get the current issue
$issue = $issueDao->getCurrent($context->getId());

// Assign the issue to the template
$templateMgr->assign('currentIssue' => $issue);

Then in your template you can use:
