Supplementary file upload doesn't check for upload
Last modified: 2012-09-21 14:31:47 PDT
It's possible for authors to create/submit a supplementary file instance during Submission Step 4, without actually uploading a file: clicking the Upload button without using the browse/find file option takes the author straight to the Supplementary File Metadata page, instead of throwing any sort of error. This is bad on a number of levels: OJS uses the supplementary file's file name as the link in other parts of the system, so without a file there's no way to actually get to the edit metadata page.
Authors should not be able to continue if they have not yet selected a file for upload. (Not sure myself how to add a check for this.)
Also likely an issue in OCS.
