Hi there guys

Cheers for the help with the macrons, Im testing it right now.

One thing though, I keep getting this error popping up here and there.
Code: Select all
Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in...
/ojs.review.mai.ac.nz/ojs/classes/submission/editor/EditorAction.inc.php on line 130

This one happens right at the end of the article submission process when I click on the CLICKING HERE link to forward the article directly to the last stage of the editing process.

The second time the error comes up, is when I try to import an issue from an already exported xml file.
This is the error:
Code: Select all
Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in ...../ojs.review.mai.ac.nz/ojs/plugins/importexport/native/NativeImportExportPlugin.inc.php on line 137

Any ideas?

Hi Stabb,

The first issue is a known problem with OJS 2.1.1; you can patch it using the patch linked from http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2346.

As for the second -- have you validated your XML against native.dtd? Could you try using the command-line import tool to see if that works?

Hi there,
I applied this patch, but I keep coming up with the same error.

Then I realized that I can only seem to submit articles via the author role.
The final step of the process says

Submission complete. Thank you for your interest in publishing with MAI Review.
If this submission is in a format that is ready to be published without further review, editing, or layout work, it can be placed directly in the last stage of the Editing queue by Clicking here. (Note: Only journal editors have this option for their submissions.)

» Active Submissions

But I cant seem to submit an article once I have assumed the role of 'Editor'.
Also, Is Journal Editor the same as Editor?

Thanks and regards
