Description Ivailo Stoyanov 2007-10-08 08:46:12 PDT
When an author submits a paper, in step 2 (Entering the Submission's Metadata) there's no input field to specify "Supporting Agencies".

Thanks, Ivailo, but I'm having trouble duplicating this locally. Could you save a copy of the HTML output (e.g. using File -> Save As in your browser) and attach it here? It might also be worth checking your server log for PHP error messages.

Hmm, that saved HTML looks exactly as it should. Have you tried reloading the page? Perhaps it was a one-off server or browser glitch. What browser are you using?

Comment 9 Ivailo Stoyanov 2007-10-09 03:29:09 PDT
After some research I have found that the form was blocked by an ad-blocking filter in my Firefox installation.

In order to prevent the "Supporting Agencies" form from being blocked I changed "sponsor" to "supporter" in the following fragment of the locally saved HTML copy.

            <table class="data" width="100%">
              <tbody>
                <tr valign="top">
                  <td class="label" width="20%"><label for=
                  "supporter">Agencies</label></td>

                  <td class="value" width="80%"><input class=
                  "textField" name="supporter[en_US]" id=
                  "supporter" value="" size="60" maxlength="255"
                  type="text" /></td>
                </tr>
              </tbody>
            </table>

Therefore I'd like to suggest this change to be implemented also in the HTML generating code in order to avoid such problems in the future (since most ad-blocking filters are naturally targeted at such strings).

Reclassified as "enhancement".

Deferring for consideration -- I'm not sure we want to introduce confusion into the code just for one ad-blocking app. Thanks for tracking the cause down, Ivailo!
