What to do if you have a technical problem with OMP:

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.

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 OMP Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OMP Development subforum.

Hi Niels Erik,

Ah -- I thought we were talking about deleting tasks, not books. Currently books can't be deleted from the catalog page -- generally we've kept the delete function fairly hidden away, as it's not a commonly-used feature and has big ramifications for the editorial history. I hesitate to make it more prominent, especially if it's just for the sake of test submissions. Are there submissions you can't find to delete in the other areas?

Hi Alec
But shouldn't we have the opportunity to delete a published book? For example if you, after publishing a book, find out that the book contains confidential information, then it should be possible to withdraw it from the catalog page.

Hi Niels Erik,

Do you see published submissions in your Archive (available from the Dashboard)? As Journal Editor, you should have a listing of all published and archived content there, along with the option to delete them.
