Series editors cannot edit series description

Hi,

I asked a series editor to modify the description of their series (which I installed). The series editor is assigned to this series and can see it under /manageCatalog but there is no "Manage Series" button as in my view.

See screenshot.

Is there a way to edit the blurb for the series editors?

Best wishes

Stefan

Hi Stefan,

This is by design; generally we consider Series to be part of the setup of the Press and thus permitted only to Managers, not to Series Editors.

Is this something you expect Series Editors to want to do once a press is into production? Could you describe your environment a little?

Hi,

Our series descriptions contain editorial boards (http://langsci-press.org). These boards may change over time (and they are incomplete in the beginning). If series editors cannot access them, the press managers have to do this. This does not fit our decentral model in which the editors do as much work as possible.

Maybe one can turn accessability for series editors into an option.

Thanks

Stefan

Hi Stefan,

I've filed this at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8512. It's unscheduled so it's a relatively low priority at the moment, but particularly if other users encounter the same issue, it'll work its way up the list.
