Integrasi OJS with Wordpress

how to integrate OJS with wordpress like this

Hi @triandi30,

OJS and WordPress use completely different codes, there’s no way they can be integrated; some journals use OJS for articles submissions and then upload the PDF files to WordPress, then displaying them with some plugin.

Best regards,

what is the name of the plugin sir?

This is not an integration. All issues and articles were manually created one by one via ElementorPageBuilder.

Hi @triandi30,

To display PDFs on WordPress? There must be a few in their plugins directory.

Best regards,

You can enable RSS in OJS and use a Wordpress plugin to take the feeds… but I won’t recommend this, because your content will be duplicated (bad for SEO) and your statitics will be splited.

I see a wordpress or drupal to implement your journal’s portal (just in case you don’t like how OJS is offering this journal’s page) but for all the rest, I think it’s much better to keep things in OJS because it’s really good doing it’s this (including tools for OAI, DOIs, zotero integratio, etc.).



@triandi30 then you may be interested in my custom-developed CMS for scientific journals. It integrates with Crossref, DOAJ, ORCID, RoR, and other scholarly infrastructure services. While still in development, there are a few example journals available.
If you’d like to test it, please let me know, and I’ll provide more information on how to get involved.


Hi @milan88

I would like to get information about your CMS.
Please give a complete explanation about it and say whether it is compatible with Google Scholar or not?
What features does your CMS have compared to OJS and what does it not have?
Don’t we need OJS using this CMS?
What language is it written in?

Hi @hj_h
Thank you for asking.
My CMS is written in PHP and provides a comprehensive solution for academic publishing.
It encompasses all the features of OJS and is fully compatible with Google Scholar. With in CMS, you can handle submission management, plagiarism checks, peer review processes, editorial decisions, revision handling, proofreading, and production workflow tracking.
Additionally, you have the flexibility to publish both issues and individual articles, group articles in collections or create special issues. Once an article is published, it is automatically sent to indexing services such as DOAJ, Crossref, and PubMed etc.

Hello @milan88
How can I test your CMS on my localhost computer?
How can I get its file and talk to you more about it?
What name did you choose for your CMS?
Does your CMS have the ability to install plugins? From what source?
Is it always updated with web and Google standards?
Can it be integrated with WordPress or OJS or…?

I like WordPress because it is very attractive, simple and easy to work with, but OJS is not as simple, attractive, flexible and easy to work with as WordPress. In OJS You have limited design possibilities and you face many problems in updates, OJS has limited plugins and…

So your CMS is interesting to me and I want to know more about it.
Do you agree to talk about it on Telegram?

سلام @milan88
چگونه می توانم CMS خود را در رایانه لوکال هاست خود آزمایش کنم؟
چگونه می توانم فایل آن را دریافت کنم و بیشتر در مورد آن با شما صحبت کنم؟
چه نامی را برای CMS خود انتخاب کردید؟
آیا CMS شما قابلیت نصب پلاگین را دارد؟ از چه منبعی؟
آیا همیشه با استانداردهای وب و گوگل به روز می شود؟
آیا می توان آن را با وردپرس یا OJS یا … ادغام کرد؟

من وردپرس را دوست دارم زیرا بسیار جذاب، ساده و کار با آن آسان است، اما OJS به اندازه وردپرس ساده، جذاب، منعطف و کار با آن آسان نیست. در OJS شما امکانات طراحی محدودی دارید و در آپدیت ها با مشکلات زیادی مواجه هستید، OJS دارای پلاگین های محدود است و …

بنابراین CMS شما برای من جالب است و می خواهم بیشتر در مورد آن بدانم.
آیا موافقید که در تلگرام در مورد آن صحبت کنید؟

Hi @milan88

Is your CMS a OJS fork? It’s still free or open source? any repository to test it?

If you respect OJS licenses is ok to promote your development in this forum, but license information need to be clear and better if you use specific spaces in forum of the form for promotion like the “Community Showcase” forum or at least, creating a new thread to avoid mixing conversations.


Hi @marc - if you look at the footer of one the mentioned journals, you see which platform is being used. Interesting, but most probably not OJS-based.


HI, @hj_h @marc @mpbraendle thank you all for the comments, I will try to be concise with my reply to all of your questions.

How can I test your CMS on my localhost computer?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to test our CMS on your localhost computer as the source code is not open. I can provide access to the CMS demo for testing purposes.

How can I get its file and talk to you more about it?

I can not provide the CMS files for external use or distribution. However, if you have specific questions or would like more information about our CMS, I would be happy to assist you through other means such as discussing it in detail via call.

Can it be integrated with WordPress or OJS or…?

Integration with other systems like WordPress or OJS is not necessary as our CMS already offers a wide range of features that meet the needs of our users. It provides a comprehensive set of functionalities that surpass those available on other platforms.

Is it always updated with web and Google standards?

Yes, CMS is regularly updated to align with the latest web and Google standards.

Does your CMS have the ability to install plugins? From what source?

This CMS does not have the need to install plugins. It is designed to provide all the necessary features and functionalities out of the box, eliminating the need for additional plugins.

Do you agree to talk about it on Telegram?

Yes, if you prefer to discuss our CMS on Telegram, I am open to that communication. I will reach out to you to continue the conversation if you confirm that you are still interested.

Is your CMS an OJS fork?

No, my CMS is not an OJS (Open Journal Systems) fork. It is a standalone system developed independently with its own unique features and capabilities.

Is it still free or open source?

No, my CMS is not free or open source. It is a proprietary system that requires appropriate licensing for its usage.

Is there a repository available to test it?

No, however, we can explore other avenues to showcase the CMS’s capabilities and discuss its suitability for your specific needs.

I apologize if my previous mention of my CMS on the OJS forum was inappropriate. If it is not acceptable, I will refrain from creating any further posts related to it. However, if it is permissible, I would be willing to create a topic about it. Please let me know your preference in this matter.

Perfectly clear now. Thanks for all your explanations.
If it’s ok, as far is kind of OT, we can split this conversation and create a new post so you can explain your software.

It’s ok if we title the new post as “New propietary CMS provides a comprehensive solution for academic publishing” ?

Or if you prefer, we can remove this part and you can create a new post introducing your software to the community?

@triandi30 My approach was a bit different than the one you shared. We use Wordpress for our website and fundraising (as we are a non-profit and our books are open-access). However, since we create a funding page for each book, we wanted to do something to avoid deleting the page or just saying something like “Project funded. Go to (our OMP)”

Therefore, we decided to simply embed an iframe on Wordpress, using a plugin Advanced iFrame Pro (there are other ways to do so). Since our OMP is on the same domain, we were able to remove the header. You can see how it looks here:
OMP (original):

I hope this helps!

Another option is to use the OJS REST API to fetch some metadata and include it on another website (Wordpress or whatever). For the PDF, however, it is good to include a backlink (DOI or direct link) to OJS so that download and COUNTER statistics are correctly reflected.

For the journal “Journal für Psychoanalyse” that we host on our OJS platform, one webdesign company did this to include its issues and articles on the website of the Psychoanalytisches Seminar Zurich:

A single article, e.g.

links then back using either a direct link to the PDF or the DOI.

Thank you for your suggestion @marc!

I truly appreciate your willingness to accommodate a post of such a kind here. I have decided to go with option two and introduce my software to the community in a new post.

However, I really like the proposed title from the first option, “New proprietary CMS provides a comprehensive solution for academic publishing.” Therefore, I will use a similar title for the new post.

I will create a new topic in the Showcase category, highlighting the features and benefits of my software for academic publishing.

I’d really like to start a discussion with the OJS community here about how could my CMS help the OJS community.
Maybe my CMS could work with OJS as a frontend, allowing users to customize the journal website’s appearance using a WordPress-like drag-and-drop interface.

Are there any other options to form synergies?

If you think, to respect this thread, we can talk about it in the new post?

Yes of course @marc
I’ll make sure to find some free time and get the post up by the end of this week.
