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

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 OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Changing the Settings for Adding Authors to a Submission

Postby metricgravity » Tue May 22, 2012 10:05 pm


I have a question about modifying the process of submitting a manuscript to an OJS journal. In Step 3 of the submission process, an author enters his name, the title of his paper, and his abstract. The author can add additional names by clicking the button labeled, "Add Author".

I would like multiple boxes for the names of authors to appear simultaneously by default. (Currently, the default setting is for only one box for the name of an author to appear.) Furthermore, I would like to set the system up such that an error message will not appear if a user does not fill in all of the boxes for the names of authors. (Right now, a user gets an error message if he does not fill in all of the boxes he has selected for the names of authors.)

Does anyone know of an easy way to set the system up to do this?

Thank you,
