I have been trying over the last few weeks to understand why some strange things happening to our journal site www.ijvss.maftree.org
Our editors were unable to upload new articles for forthcoming issue using XML plugin - Articles & Issues XML Plugin under Journal manager panel:
The error is:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_NS_SEPARATOR in /home/maftree/public_html/ijvss/cache/t_compile/%%C1^C1B^C1B116CB%%index.tpl.php on line 5
looking at the difference between previous version cache and current file, there seems to be something dropped such as "pageTitle" and few other variables replaced by "/".
Editor tried to follow manual process of one-click submission using "Create Issue" under Editor panel
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_NS_SEPARATOR in /home/maftree/public_html/ijvss/cache/t_compile/%%12^12B^12BC9318%%createIssue.tpl.php on line 5
We've tried various fixes such as utf-8 or utf8 character set, this has always been unable to fix. There are some sections of the journal were working fine - such as author submissions, crossref export plugin, editorial assignments, peer review request, etc.
Spoke to our hosting provider and said nothing major change happened. The current versions of hosting server are PHP version 5.3.17, MySQL version 5.1.65-cll
We also find the PDF reading is also not working, even so, downloaded pdf was failing to open.
Any help from expert users will be highly appreciated. We are happy to share the access of journal login as well as webhost login details for a quick remedy.
