History section users error?

Hi - I have found an odd error - in the History section for a submission, under "Event Log - Recent Entries" - the user listed for each event is the same one, rather than the different users it should be. I don't recall that being the case even last week when I last looked over the history of a sub, but it seems to be in all of them now. Several of them are listing the section editor - but others have one of the reviewers listed as the user all the way down.

Bug?

cheers,

Hi Arachne,

Yes, this is a known issue in OJS 2.1.1 -- it's a bug in the display code, which causes all events to be attributed to the same person. Fortunately, the error is in the display code, not the storage, meaning that entries will be displayed properly, retrospectively, once fixed. See http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2383 for a patch.

ok, great - just remind me - if I want to do this manually, I crack open classes/article/log/ArticleEmailLogEntry.inc.php and swap out the - with the + lines at the line #s noted?
