Hi Alec,
How can I delete author comments from a particular author by logging in as journal manager ?

Thanks and Regards

Hi Abhiram,

Do you mean comments as in review comments or layout editing comments? You can use the "Log In As" feature of the Journal Manager's Users interface to become either an editor or the particular user (e.g. reviewer) who posted the comment. Then you should be able to delete the comment in question from the comments pop-up.

Hi abhiram,

The "comments to editor" field is currently only available on the author's submission form, which is no longer accessible after the submission is complete. For the time being, you'll have to correct this in the database, i.e.:
Code: Select all
UPDATE articles SET comments_to_ed='' WHERE article_id=193;
I suspect the author misunderstood the purpose of the field in your submission; if we hear of this sort of situation happening regularly, we'll probably implement a way to modify the field in an upcoming release.
