Changing menu options on Review Step n. 6

Postby angevent » Thu Jun 19, 2014 8:05 am


a journal would like to remove step 6 from Review Process because they want just the review, not the reviewer recommendation.

I suppose that it's impossible to delete the final step, but can I have a menu with only an option (not 6)? An option that will be: "Please see the synthetic judgement in the evaluation form".

Important: this change should be only for a journal, the other ones will have at least two option.

Thank you

Hi Angelo,

You'll have to make code changes to do this, but you can make them journal-specific by checking which journal is being viewed as part of the modification. It'll actually be easier to hide the recommendation drop-down entirely than to change the options in it -- for your one journal, you can effectively force the choice of a single entry. Something like this, in templates/reiviewer/submission.tpl:

Code: Select all

{if $currentJournal->getPath() == 'mySpecialJournalPath'}
   {* This is a copy of the form code from the regular case, but with a "hidden" input instead of the drop-down. *}
   <form ...>
       <input type="hidden" name="recommendation" value="(the value of the recommendation you want this case to imply)" />
   ...The regular code for the reviewer recommendation form and drop-down goes here...
