Description James MacGregor 2012-08-30 13:55:14 PDT
This concerns the author's Active Submissions list. For every article that is in the list, there's the article Title (which hyperlinks to the article Summary page) and the article Status (which links to either the Review or Editing page depending on where the article is at the time). 

That Status link currently only seems to say "IN REVIEW", regardless of where the submission is. IIRC, this should also display the most recent editor decision, if any. See line 37+ in templates/author/active.tpl: 

				{elseif $status==STATUS_QUEUED_REVIEW}
					<a href="{url op="submissionReview" path=$articleId}" class="action">
						{assign var=decision value=$submission->getMostRecentDecision()}
						{if $decision == $smarty.const.SUBMISSION_EDITOR_DECISION_PENDING_REVISIONS}{translate key="author.submissions.queuedReviewRevisions"}
						{elseif $submission->getCurrentRound() > 1}{translate key="author.submissions.queuedReviewSubsequent" round=$submission->getCurrentRound()}
						{else}{translate key="submissions.queuedReview"}
				{elseif $status==STATUS_QUEUED_EDITING}
					{assign var="proofSignoff" value=$submission->getSignoff('SIGNOFF_PROOFREADING_AUTHOR')}
					<a href="{url op="submissionEditing" path=$articleId}" class="action">
						{if $proofSignoff->getDateNotified() && !$proofSignoff->getDateCompleted()}{translate key="author.submissions.queuedEditingCopyedit"}
						{elseif $proofSignoff->getDateNotified() && !$proofSignoff->getDateCompleted()}{translate key="author.submissions.queuedEditingProofread"}
						{else}{translate key="submissions.queuedEditing"}

Sorry -- this appears to be working fine when the decision is revisions required: I see "IN REVIEW: REVISIONS REQUIRED". When the decision is resubmit for review, I only see "IN REVIEW".

James, have you got a specific submission on the test server that illustrates the problem?
Comment 3 James MacGregor 2012-08-30 14:44:42 PDT
Hey Alec, take a look at http://lib-ojs1.lib.sfu.ca:8092/index.php/ktj/author (logging in as pkpadmin): the "Review test title" article has had a "Resubmit for Review" decision on it.
Comment 4 Alec Smecher 2012-08-30 15:55:24 PDT
In review, only 3 states are coded:
- If the last decision was "revisions required", note that ("In Review: Revisions Required")
- Otherwise, if we're past the first round of review, note that (e.g. "In Review Round 2")
- Otherwise, "In Review"

There's no special case for "Resubmit for Review" (and that would require a new locale key).

Needs translation round
