Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Error at include metadata in a new language

Postby CFreire » Tue Feb 09, 2010 1:18 pm

Hi guys:
The system is not accepting the inclusion of metadata in another idioma (in this case, English); accusing the absence of metadata in the principal language. What is not true.
The error returned is the error "standard":

Errors occurred processing this form:
* Please enter the title of your article. (Português (Brasil))
* Please enter the abstract of your article. (Português (Brasil))

Note: this error appeared "suddenly" after having already published several editions without a problem.
Any idea?

Time, please! :(
I discovered (too late?) this link: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4144
Is this my case?

Hi Carlos,

Is Porguguese your principal language? If it is, you will have to enter all mandatory field information in Portuguese. If you are already doing this but encountering an error, please let me know. Please also let me know which pages are giving you this error.

Hi, James:

Yes, Portuguese is my principal language, but...
As usual, the error was between the chair and mouse :(
Instead of changing the language of form - as I had done several times, I started to change the language on the side menu ... Why, please do not ask me.

I hope this post serves at least to other idiots like me!

Thanks for your reply

Cheers, Carlos
