Import/Export Plugin and Existing Future Issue

Postby CharlieJ » Thu Nov 04, 2010 8:48 am

Can I import articles into an existing (currently empty) future issue or should I delete the issue in OJS and let the Import/Export Data recreate it. The documentation says that the plugin will automatically create issues, sections, and articles, but it does not say how it will operate with an issue that already exists.

Hi Ch,

If the issue exists but is currently empty, I'd just go ahead and delete it -- you'll ensure that you won't get any issue dupe problems that way.
