Journal description in OJS 3


I was wondering if we can display journal description on the homepage of the website, not only in admin view.
There is a reference to journalDescription in templates/frontend/pages/indexJournal.tpl but never used.


Hi @Ghazal,

We don’t show the Journal Description on the homepage in the default theme, but you can display it wherever you’d like on that template with the {$journalDescription} variable. It’s available to that template even though it’s not used in the default theme.

If you want to access it from any other frontend template, you should be able to do so with {$journal->getLocalisedSetting('description')}.

Thanks @NateWr. It works using your solution.

Best Regards
