Assign reviewer error

Postby mihaiug » Tue Nov 26, 2013 11:21 pm


If I try to assign a reviewer to an article that was submitted without file upload (author mistake) a blank page is displayed.
In the log file the following error is reported:

Code: Select all

PHP Fatal error:  Call to a member function getId() on a non-object in /var/www/vhosts/ojs/html/classes/submission/sectionEditor/ on line  128, referer: http://myserverhost/index.php/MyJournalAlias/editor/selectReviewer/570

The ojs version is 2.4.2 with all recommended patches and php version is 5.3.3.

Hi Smecher,

I tested your patch and now works fine.

Thank you very much!
