Author deletion of incomplete submissions

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Author deletion of incomplete submissions

Postby RickMath » Tue Sep 15, 2009 1:25 pm

I and my track directors are learning the OCS system. So far the experience is great.

One question at this point. I have been guiding some people through the submission process. When we reach a point where the submission is incomplete as a test there is an item when logging in as an author to delete an imcomplete submission. When we click on that the incomplete submission does not seem to be deleted. Is there a fix for this?

I understand that once a submission is in review that only I as the conference manager can archive and delete a submission. No problem with this.

Thanks for your advice. We really love OCS. :D

Thanks. I replaced the line as indicated in the patch and no change. The incomplete submission was not deleted.

Hopefully we can find another fix. I am running OCS 2.1.2

:D

Ok it is now working. After reviewing the patch and the old line and the new line my installation did not have the ! in the part that is if (!$isValid && $isDeleting) {

If one leaves this out the deletion by the presenter does not work with it it does. So the new line if (!$isValid) { works

Thanks for the fix. Another kudo for the PKP support team. Yeah!!!!!! :wink:
