Redirect to site page if journal path is wrong


if I a have a typo in the journal path, I will be redirected to the site page / journal overview, e.g. correct path:, wrong path:

This is okay if there are multiple journals and I have setup a site page. However, If I have a single journal installation, I wouldn’t want to setup the site page (and I cannot access the site options anyway). For single journal installations, the site page should not become visible (or site settings must be accessible).


Hi @carola,

I think a 404 would be the most appropriate response to a request for a nonexistent journal (by path). See Respond to requests for nonexistent journals with a 404 · Issue #3845 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub for a fix.
