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.
The magazine is hosted in my multiOJS, so I reviewed other magazines to see what happens and looks like it's a general issue. Let me check the templates... so it could be related with a couple of changes I made in them.
The relevant code is plugins/generic/referral/ReferralPlugin.inc.php, around the handleAuthorTemplateInclude function (which has a slightly convoluted execution path). A few error_log statements there to find out what's being called and what isn't may help. As far as I can recall, none of this changed up to 2.3.8, and changes between that and 2.4.2 will be primarily around coding conventions and related tweaks.
