Missing glyphicons in ojs v3.1.2

Hi @NateWr,

I just upgraded one of our journals with your bootstrap3. On our test system everythings displays fine, but on our live server some icons can’t be displayed, see: Beitragseinreichung | o-bib. Das offene Bibliotheksjournal / Herausgeber VDB


I get an error message due to missing glyphicons:

glyphicons-halflings-regular.woff2:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

Can you tell me, where and how I need to add these glyphicons?

Thanks, Anna

Hi @akku,

Thanks for reporting. This was an old issue reintroduced when we updated the bootstrap library in the theme. I’ve addressed this and hope to get a new release out this week:


Hi @NateWr,

thank you very much for the new release, I will implement it this afternoon.
Unfortunately I found another problem: on my smartphone the navigation menu of the journals (e.g. www.o-bib.de) doesn’t work. I suppose this is also a problem of the bootstrap?


Hi @akku,

This is happening because of a modification it looks like you’ve made to the Bootstrap3 theme’s header.tpl:

			<!--logo in den Header einfügen-->
			<div style="border: 0px dotted yellow; width: 100%; text-align: center; height: 75px; z-index: 100; position: relative;">
				<a href="">
					<img src="https://www.o-bib.de/public/journals/8/pageHeaderLogoImage_de_DE.png" alt="Logo in der Kopfzeile">

In that code, you have opened up a new <a> tag but failed to close it. As a result, the button is being interpreted as a link and reloading the page when it is clicked.

Hi @NateWr,

thanks for analysing the problem; I included the missing which doesn’t solve the problem. But I realized that the responsive navigation doesn’t work due to the integration of the logo in the header. So I need to find another solution for that.

best regards, Anna

Hi @NateWr,

I found the mistake: the logo needs to be integrated in the previous div-tag.

Meanwhile I implemented the newly released bootstra v3.1.2-5, but the glyphicon mistake continues to exist… I tested it with another journal: Beitragseinreichung | Junior Management Science

I am not sure, whether it is also a server configuration problem (we use ubuntu 16.04)?

Thanks for having a look,

Have you cleared the cache under the administrator settings? If that doesn’t work, try deactivating and reactivating the theme from Settings > Website > Appearance.

I think that this happens when the theme is upgraded from the UI. But maybe not…


now it works (Beitragseinreichung | o-bib. Das offene Bibliotheksjournal / Herausgeber VDB): I had to deativate/reativate my standard bootstrap theme. I think this is due to the fact, that I implemented a child theme.
I will write it into my documentation for the next upgrade …

thanks a lot again,
