Handle Notification mailing list in OJS 3 in sidebar


I would like to be able to include the subscription list in the sidebar.

Currently the OJS 3.1 system allows registered users to subscribe to notifications, messages, etc.

What happens with non-registered users?

Is it possible to enable the function in the sidebar so that a visitor can register their mail to receive news or other information about the 3.x Journal?


Hi @David_Alarcon_davidy,

Are you thinking that there would be a textbox on the sidebar where a user would enter their email address to subscribe quickly to content? I don’t think there is a way to do this without extensive custom coding. The best way to do it that integrates with OJS’s existing functions would be to create a custom block that says something like “Subscribe to journal updates” and link it to the user registration form.
