[Note: I recently upgraded from 2.3.8 to 2.4.2, as per my questions at viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10449
According to viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10426
it looks like for 2.4.2 I am supposed to apply this patch http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=3728
to change the PaymentManager class constructor. However, when I do that, then most pages in my newly updated 2.4.2 ( was 2.3.8 ) come up as blank (because the respective calls to OJSPaymentManager's constructor fails, according to the Apache error logs).
It looks like in 2.4.2 that all calls to the OJSPaymentManager class constructor includes a 'request' parameter, so I'm unclear as to why the patch mentioned above should be used.
The main problem I have right now is that a user cannot create a new submission, as the /journalname/author/submit/ page appears as blank.
