To put restrictons and get rid of codes

I’m a begginer in OJS and i have two questions.
i’d like to know if can put restrictions of characters on text boxes in the submissions (like the biography summary).

And how do i change “##submission.submit.availableUserGroups##” this kind of code that appears in some places in the submission area (to insert the right text)?.

I’m using the version OJS

Hi @Josh1,

If you’re using version 3.1, I’d highly recommend upgrading, as I think you’d find updated translations in later versions (like 3.3.) that would fix this issue.

Upgrading instructions are available in the PKP Administrator’s Guide and as part of our [Upgrade Guide] (

Information about the latest version of OJS can be found on the PKP Website
