Community discussions around Open Publish distribution.
OpenPublish is a packaged distribution of Drupal, that has been tailored to the needs of today's online publishers. OpenPublish is ideal for the implementation of a variety of media outlet's sites including: online magazines, newspapers, journals, trade publications, broadcast, wire service and membership publications. Built and supported on standard Drupal core (currently Drupal 6x), OpenPublish features support everything from basic news coverage needs to Web 2.0 trends, social publishing, semantic tagging and topic hubs. Each component bundled in the distribution is well supported, documented and modularly designed according to Drupal's architecture.

Important note: in order to fix consistency issues and critical bugs, in a timely manner, OpenPublish had to patch some third-party modules included in it. It's not recommended to independently update those. More information at: http://groups.drupal.org/node/60313
I'm running the most recent version of OP distribution on D7. I've updated all the modules and core manually because of the lag time between the last distribution update and now.
The block/box we were using to display articles specific to an author on the authors profile doesn't seem to work anymore. No matter what variation of contextual filters and relationships I can't get the block to display articles by the author. Obviously you can't make a block for each individual profile on the site.Read more
I'm just wondering if anyone here has used the web widgets module being developed by Phase II technologies on a Drupal 7 site? (http://drupal.org/project/web_widgets)
It's still in the alpha stages, but I wanted to see if someone could share their thoughts on its use. Being able to export content from a Drupal site via embedable widgets would have lots of value for a news site.
Does it worked well?... Is it easy to export/embed?... How is the styling was handled?..., etc...
I'm creating an online newspaper with the latest version of OpenPublish. I'm not clear how to create articles from a feed. The documentation and tutorials that I've seen seem to apply to OpenPublish 1.0. Can someone direct me to the applicable documentation for this feature ?
Before few months, i have installed openpublish distribution in my server and launched my site. On top of that i have installed many modules and made some designs. But, I'm facing issue such as
"There is a security update available for your version of Drupal. To ensure the security of your server, you should update immediately! See the available updates page for more information and to install your missing updates"
I have this message but haven't been able to find a solution. What should I do to fix it?
strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /var/www/[...]/sites/all/modules/openpublish_core/openpublish_menu/openpublish_menu.module on line 34.
I have been trying to get an openpublish site up and running literally for years. Its confusing, and powerful. When I go to the website and click community, its not actually community, its a directory of documentation thats hard to navigate, missing images, and incomplete to say the least.Read more
There are hyperlocal journalists all over the country (world?) starting community websites like mine.
But Gazette is hideous. Very few small town publications have the ability to hire a company to do all their site architecture and make custom themes -- Trustworthy companies want $2,000 to $10,000 for this.
On the other side of the spectrum, premium themes range from $29 to $79... but they don't have things like ready-made standard advertising holes and all the other stuff a publisher needs.Read more
Over the last 36 hour, all my youtube videos have broken.
When I create an OP Video using vimeo in the URL, it's fine
When I create OP Video using youtube in the URL, it does not worl.
When I try embed using wyziwig video filter (iframe) youtube doesn't work.
When I try embed using source-old embed code- youtube will show up.
Anyone up for a collaboration to build a multisite for small- to mid-sized journals?
Let me explain.
OP2 did a marvelous job for me way back. I showed the possibilities and what one can achieve with Drupal. In my case this resulted in a website that has a complete archive of a literature journal, with author-controlled biographies, blogs, events... and hopefully soon an e-shop (cf. Ubercard), mobile webapp (cf. Services), metadata-standards based exports (MarcXML, MODS), archival/preservation (cf. exports to Internet archive)...Read more
I can have Drupal 7.18 installed at my server, but I thought that it would a Drupal core site not OpenPublish distribution. I installed Drupal 7.18 from my server, deleted it and installed the OpenPublish version openpublish-7.x-1.0-beta2-core.zip. I am having problems with this installation of OpenPublish but the look is exactly the same as it was the Drupal 7.18 from the server.Read more

I downloaded OpenPublish (openpublish-7.x.1.0-beta7-core.zip), unzipped it and transferred the whole content to the server. I created a database with the admin user and open the site on the browser. Immediately it opens up a welcome page with a login panel. If I click on “create a user” I get “internal error”; if I click on “create an account” or “forgot password” I get “500 Internal Server Error (Internal Server Error: The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.Read more
I am getting ready to install OpenPublish for the first time and this is my first Drupal installation ever. I was using OJS; this afternoon I learned about Drupal E-Journal and tonight I discovered Drupal OpenPublish. I want to publish initially one single journal and need to be able to create DOI for each article and metadata information to submit to OCLC.
My first question: 1) Do I need to install module E-Journal on to OpenPublish distribution?Read more
I'm actually running different Drupal distros (not multisites), each one having its own database (for technical and testing purpose). We are using Postgresql.
It goes like this:
1 - std drupal 7.18 + drupal_db: Install reach to end like a charm, no error msg.
2 - pushtape + pushtape_db : no error either.
3 - OpenPublish + openp_db : return this,
Notice: Undefined index: fields in field_info_fields() (line 596 of /var/www/bwb/modules/field/field.info.inc).
I am trying to put in OM Maximenu as my main menu and i can't find where to put in the suggested code
