I noticed that in OJS2 Administration Site, there is 2 sections:
- Introduction: which is displayed on the main page of the website above the journals list
- About the Site description: which is displayed in the page of the “About” menu
In OJS3 Administration Site, there is only 1 section left:
- About the Site: which is displayed on the main page of the website
And the about page has been removed.
I know that your motivation in removing sections was to simplify the Setup areas.
But it’s non suitable for us (University of Bordeaux) because we display all legal informations (which are mandatory) in the “About” page. And we don’t want to display them in the main page because it’s too long and the journals list will be displayed too far below in the page.
I thought then to add a static page (even if I don’t know yet if it’s possible to display a dynamic variable into those pages). But it’s not actually possible to add static pages on Site level. It’s only possible to add static pages on each journal site.
I saw there was already a topic on this subject in this forum.
For our case, that also fits well that adding Static Pages at the site level would be a Site Administrator level permission and adding Static Pages at a journal level would be a Journal Manger level permission.
I was wondering if you plan in OJS3 to reintroduce the “About” page of the main page ?
And at least when do you plan to offer the possibility to add static pages on Site level ?
It is important to us to have an independent additional page on the main website to add legal informations.
Thanks in advance for your answer.
