Description James MacGregor 2011-02-06 22:51:03 PST
Courtesy of http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7134&p=27583#p27540, point 4:

4) When in the Website Management>Step 1. About the Conference, I enter anything inside the textarea for "Affiliation" for the Principal Contact for Conference Website, then in the About the Conference > Conference Contact page, the word "Array" shows up underneath the contact's title...
...if I clear the "Affiliation" field in Step1 of the Website Management, About the Conference, then the that word disappear

This seems to be possibly related to Bug 6101 (which should probably be evaluated) although I don't think they are the same problem. If I apply Radomir's fix from Bug 6101 I can still replicate the problem, above. Anything I add to the affiliations field seems to be saved in the DB; in this case, it's just a problem retrieving it.
