Error in SuppFileForm.inc.php (OJS 2.4)

Postby springday » Fri Sep 07, 2012 3:54 pm

I've run into an error when trying to add a supplementary file to a published article. I started out from the page associated with the URL [journal]/editor/submission/[articleId] and clicked "Add supplementary file" (URL [journal]/editor/addSuppFile/[articleID]?from=submission). I received the following PHP error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function getData() on a non-object in C:\xampp\htdocs\ojs\classes\plugins\PubIdPluginHelper.inc.php on line 51

The PubIdPluginHelper is called from line 178 of SuppeFileForm.inc.php:

Code: Select all
$pubIdPluginHelper->init($this, $suppFile);

$suppFile is not defined at this stage, because I was trying to add a new supplementary file.

Hi Jason,

yes, moving those four lines up did the job, I can now add supplementary files without encountering an error message. Thanks a lot!
