Empty 'submit new abstract or paper' page

Postby jugriffin » Wed Aug 30, 2006 5:19 am


When you click Submit a New Abstract or Paper in our ocs website, the site takes users to a page titled Abstract and Paper Submission with no other information - the rest of the page is empty. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Thank you!

Hi Julie,

The problem is most likely that OCS is slightly incompatible with your version of PHP. We're currently working on a complete rewrite of OCS to bring it up to the level of OJS 2.x, but in the meantime the current release is perfectly serviceable -- except for one detail. For some versions of PHP, you'll need to search the code for occurences of [abstract] and replace them with ['abstract'].
