OpenScholar represents a paradigm shift in how the personal academic and research web sites are created and maintained. Built on the open-source framework Drupal, OpenScholar makes it possible to create academic web sites in a matter of seconds. Each web site comes with a suite of powerful tools from which users can facilitate the creation, distribution, and preservation of knowledge faster and more efficiently than ever before.
OpenScholar allows users to create genuine, feature-rich web sites on the fly in seconds and is designed to host an unlimited number of web sites in a single installation.
I've seen several threads that mention a recommendation that OpenScholar be used with PHP 5.2, rather than 5.3 (or 5.4). The most recent of these I have seen was from March 2012, so I was wondering if this is still the recommendation?Read more
I'm getting the 3.1 branch set up for some local testing, and noticed in the install instructions that it specifies using 7.15. Is this an artifact of when the instructions were written, or is there something specific about that version? The current release is 7.19, but I'm happy to use the earlier version if that is the intent.
I'm trying to figure out how to manage comments in the blog module. Of course, there's a huge amount of spam comments (you don't have to be logged in to comment) and the approval queue system doesn't seem to work: When I click on the "delete" link under a comment I only receive a "Access denied. You are not authorized to access this page." message. And if I go to cp/content/comments/approval the "Choose an operation" dropdown menu doesn't have any entries. This is all despite the user in question having privileges to "administer comments". Any ideas what's wrong?Read more
Running: Drupal 6 OS beta13
When I use the "Post in a Widget" search option, I get this:
Oh Snap! Autocomplete runtime error :(
====== DEBUG ======
pxmlhttp: [object XMLHttpRequest]db.uri:
An HTTP error 0 occurred.
Anyone run into this? Any thoughts on how to correct it?
Here is a link to my github for a module that adds a checkbox option to the CV page on a vsite. When checked, a copy of the cv (it takes it from the pdf upload in the cv) appears as a downloadable link below the profile image. Any and all feedback on it is welcome. Thanks.
Is it possible for members of the community, outside the IQSS at Harvard, to get involved in contributing to this project? I am evaluating setting up a new instance, but am concerned that there appears to be only a 6.x release.
I've seen comments that a 7.x release is coming, but can't find any testing versions that I could evaluate. Is there a way for people to get involved? What is recommended? I haven't done a great deal of contribution in the past, but am willing to learn.
I am experiences very strange problems on openscholar project pages.
page content are showing duplicated content.
For example the content is showing up twice on a page...like duplicates
Here is an example:
Any insight would be so helpful.
Our project pages are all of a sudden showing up blank. There are no errors displayed, but just a blank page
The main front page shows up fine as you can see below:
But any project page listed above when clicked gives a blank page. All the content in the project pages are still viewable as administrator, but the vsite pages are all showing blank.
Our developers are looking into it but so far they are stumped.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
This is the first time we've come across this, so I wanted to propose the question to the group before I implement anything. We have a faculty member that is leaving our University and would like to redirect their current OS site to their new site. How do folks handle redirects when a scholar leaves?Read more
Is it possible to integrate Quiz into OpenScholar? ( http://drupal.org/project/quiz )
So that each scholar site could create their own quizzes.
This would make OpenScholar a very good candidate for creating online learning objects.
Has anyone any experience integrating other common Drupal modules into OpenScholar?
Maybe someone can give me small guidelines how to make this work?
I'm looking for hints how to do that in OpenScholar 3.0 but if someone has done that in OpenScholar 2.0 then that information can also be very helpful.
OS includes a kind of help document for creating custom widgets, but there isn't too much detail in there.
Example via the help doc:
$items = array();
$items['mymodule-block5'] = array(
'module' => 'mymodule',
'delta' => 'block5',
'weight' => -21,
'region' => false,
'label' => 'Latest Things',
'tags' => array('Misc'),
'block_config_path' => "path here",

We still don't have a released version of D6 and yet D7 is on its way. Is there any clear upgrade path from D6? Since we're waiting for latest D6 release, do you think it worth the hassle of upgrading to D7?
Please share your upgrade experience
--> Upgraded Drupal from 6.19 to 6.22 (building open scholar for a Drupal 6 site)
--> Upgraded OpenScholar from beta9 to beta 13 (i need to use beta13 for this site)
When I go to "site-building" then "features" it tells me that
--> "Scholar Project" is in conflict with "scholar" and "vsite"
--> "Open Scholars" is in confilct with "scholar_project"
--> "vsite" is in conflict with "scholar_project"
Has any one encountered a similar conflict? Thanks for any help on this.
I want to put a block view sitewide across every user's scholar site, except only have it show particular content related to that user (in this case, a hi resolution image of the user).
What is the best way to do this in Open Scholar via Views? Or is there a better way?
I'll probably be setting up another Openscholar installation on a new machine soon, running Ubuntu 12.04 which comes with PHP 5.3. In general, it has been suggested that Drupal 6 doesn't really work well with PHP 5.3, and the system requirements for OpenScholar also ask for 5.2. I suppose I can downgrade the PHP installation on the server but first I wanted to hear if anyone is successfully using OpenScholar with a current PHP version -- apparently most modules and the core for Drupal 6 have been updated to function with 5.3.
Somehow in the process of updating or migrating my OS installation, something must have gone wrong with the permissions: no matter which user I'm logged in with (including user with admin and manager privileges), when I try accessing the control panel for a site I get a "You are not authorized to access this page." message. The only item on the control panel that I can access is the "Content" tab. I've tried various tweaks in the permissions settings but none have been successful. Does anyone have suggestions?Read more
Running OpenScholar beta14 and I've added Adaptivetheme, and made my own subtheme of it.
I can see it as admin under SiteBuilding>Themes, and enable it. But if a User opens Appearance in his ControlPanel, my Adaptive theme isn't there. Anyone know what I need to do to fix this?
BTW, I have my them sitting in .../sites/all/themes and have tried placing it in contrib or custom. No luck. I've also tried adding a couple lines to openscholar.make but for my knowledge level this was a wild guess.
