Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS 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 OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS 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 OJS 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 OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Table of Contents reorder problem

Postby emeryg » Tue Oct 18, 2011 5:54 am

We are having a problem reordering our journal’s table of contents. While in the Editor role clicking on the arrow next to the article jumps us to the Editor homepage instead of reordering the TOC. We have three sections and this problem occurs in two of them. The other section works fine. This problem has not happened in previous journal issues. Is there a settings problem? A bug? Is a patch needed? Any ideas to fix this?

Thanks,
George

Hi George,

You may be running into the following: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4554. If that patch doesn't apply, could you tell us which version of OJS you are using?

Cheers,
James

James,
Thanks for the info. We would like to add that patch and fix this problem. However, the patch is for version 2.2 and we are currently running version 2.3.5. Is there an updated patch for this version and how can I get it?

Our server person just informed me that he reviewed the 2 files the patch modifies and found the code is already included in the version we are running. Is there more or different code patch for 2.3.5?

Thanks,
George

Hi George,

There doesn't seem to be any changes to this code since 2.3.5. Are you seeing any errors in your error log when you get redirected?

Cheers,
Matt

James,
I had to put this problem on hold for a bit while we published the journal. We used the default settings of the table of contents and did not do any reordering. Now I would like to go back and resolve this problem before the next issue comes up on us.
The error log was looked into and we found nothing to indicate this problem. However, the database has a bug and and we will be updating a patch for it. I'm attaching the error log. Perhaps you can see something we are missing.

Thanks,
George

Hi George,

It looks like there may have been an issue when you upgraded OJS. This can be resolved by going into the 'versions' table of your DB, finding the rows where product_type is 'core' and product is 'ojs2', and setting the value 'current' to 0 for the older of the two versions (check the major/minor/revision columns). I'm not sure if that will fix your problem, but this version error could lead to several issues.

Cheers,
Matt
