OJS 3 images download instead of open in browser

In OJS 2, you could link to a larger file of an image in the HTML. The file would then open in the browser with a URL that looks something like this:


In OJS 3, all those links to larger images now force you to download the image, instead of allowing you to view it. Does anyone have a workaround for this?


What’s the status of this? I am also having this problem.

Thank you,

Hi all,

What OJS release are you using? (Please include this with your posts.)
