Problem notifying a section editor of new submission

Postby AndrewMSmith » Thu Nov 24, 2005 10:37 am

Hi All,

I've just installed OJS after a trial with v1.9 earlier in the year, and I have to say that v2 looks to be excellent.

However, I've run into a problem with my first (dummy) submission. The submission worked fine, and the email was sent to the author (myself) sucessfully. But when the Editor (also myself) tried to assign the article to a Section Editor (guess who!) I got the following error message:

Fatal error: Only variables can be passed by reference in E:\extranet\ojs\classes\mail\MailTemplate.inc.php on line 83

Can anyone suggest a solution?

Hello Andrew,

This is a known issue (http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1903) as a result of changes to reference handling in PHP 5.0.5.

You can get the changes to fix this from CVSWeb: http://research2.csci.educ.ubc.ca/cgi-b ... 2=

Thanks very much for that Alec - I'd searched all through the Forum here, but my firewall doesn't seem to let me get to your Bugzilla.

Now working nicely :-)

Thanks again,
