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
