Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Information for Authors not showing up

Postby glenart » Wed Oct 08, 2008 1:57 am

Hi,

I have a problem showing up "Information for Authors" by Information plugin on sidebar.

"Information for Readers" is showing with no problem, but I am not able to get "Information for Authors" displayed although I have filled in 2.3 Authors guidelines field in Current Conference setup.

I have also setup conference timeline, call for papers and submissions are open.

Our test website instalation is avaiable at: http://193.2.123.33/ocs-2.1.1-1

We are using OCS 2.1.1-1

Is there anything I am missing?

Thank you in advance and best regards,

Gregor

Hi Gregor,

I get what looks to be a permissions error when I go to that URL -- I would recommend checking your cache folder permissions (details in the OJS FAQ: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2481) and get back to us when that's fixed. I can take a fresh look then.

Cheers,
James

Thank you James for your reply,

We are running our test OCS server on Win XP workstation so I guess that folder permission is not the case.

In meantime I did testing also on OCS demo testdrive server at:

http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs2/demo/testdrive/i ... 2009/index (admin/testdrive)

and I was not able to get "Information for authors" published either.

When I was checking plugin code at following files:

ocs-2.1.1-1\plugins\blocks\information\block.tpl

I was not able to find any entry in any locale folder for EN_us language for following navigation key:

navigation.infoForAuthors

I know that "Information for Authors" plugin is working in OJS server, but somehow I was not able to find any OCS server with "Information for Authors" displayed.

Could this possible be bug?

Best regards,

Gregor
