Description Michael Felczak 2009-09-04 13:26:55 PDT
For content imported via the new expedited submission process, the article
publication date will be the current date. Editors can modify the issue
publication date for past issues, but not the article publication date.

Also add option next to edit of issue publication date that will allow Editors to propagate edited issue publication date to all articles in the TOC. This will speed-up and simply workflow and not require that Editors edit each article publication date one by one.

Rescheduled to 2.3.5 due to reports from Coaction and Google Scholar.

Patch against OJS 2.3.4

Requires a DB change to make published_articles.date_published nullable:

ALTER TABLE published_articles CHANGE COLUMN date_published date_published DATETIME;

See bug #6480 for related changes.
