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.

I just used quick submit to create 10 volumes of back issues of an envirnmental journal on OJS

I can browse by Issue, and browse by Title, but when I browse by Author, I get blank pages with the alpha listing etc. displaying properly.

Is this related to the quick submit? In each quick submit I created name and surname for all authors. If I search an author on the Journal content search, I get the authors, and the authors names are displaying properly in the table of contents.

I have tried applying the re index php file in the tools folder as well.
