[Solved] Step 5.3 : Journal Page Header title Image sizing


How can we change the image size, which can be uploaded via step 5.3 : title image ? I would like to change it from pixels to % ?


Hi @zaratushtra,

You can change the handling of the header image by uploading a CSS file overriding the default rules. Note that you’ll need experience with CSS, and I’d suggest working with a developer toolbar to help determine what rules are required.

Me puede indicar si pudiste solucionar el problema. Yo tengo el mismo inconvenienete.

What version of OJS are you using? This thread appears to relate to OJS 2.4.x. The other thread, where you have also posted, relates to OJS 3.x. The solution will be differnent (but similar) for each version.

If you have a link to share, this might be another way to help other offer some suggestions.

Uso el OJS 3 con el tema bootstrap. Gracias por responder

The OJS3 Bootstrap theme will require familiarity with CSS to customize the look and feel. A good place to start with CSS is W3Schools:
