Google Scholar plugin installation problem


I read here about the google scholar plugin,I create the listed files and archived as tar.gz but when I uploaded it as a new plugin I got the following error

Errors occurred processing this form:
The uploaded plugin archive does not contain a folder that corresponds to the plugin name.

My archive file mane is GoogleScholarPlugin.tar.gz.

Can somebody help me to fix this problem?


Hi @dotyoka,
Try with googleScholar instead of GoogleScholarPlugin.

Make sure the folder within the .tar.gz is named as googleScholar


Hi @dotyoka,

Are you sure that plugin is compatible with your version of OJS? That plugin should be included already with compatible releases.
