Submissions Disappear

Postby elmborg » Wed Sep 07, 2005 6:38 am

I'm setting up ojs 2.01 and trying to run through the submission process to test the system. I have a user registered as an author, a section editor assigned to the section. The author submits a manuscript through the five steps and receives acknowledgement that the article is awaiting assignment. E-mail of thanks goes out to the author.

When I log author out and log back in as section manager, there are no submissions awaiting assignment. Submissions just disappear without a trace. OJS is writing to the my journal_files directory, so I know it's not a permissions problem (is it?).

I'm stumped and don't know how to troubleshoot in the absence of error messages. Any help much appreciated.

I've been trying to read the documentation before posting questions, but I'm finding solutions after asking. My apologies. I added an journal editor who can now see the submissions.
