in registration set author and reviewer to ON

Postby gunthermaier » Tue Jan 07, 2014 4:07 am

Hi everybody,
is there a way to set OJS such that when a new user registers the checkmarks for "author" and "Reviewer" are set to on by default? In templates/user/register.tpl this seems to be prepared. There the variables $registerAsAuthor and $registerAsReviewer are checked and when "true" the checkbox is checked. I could simply remove the if-statement from the template file, but if there is a way to achieve this without messing with the code, I would prefer it.

Hi Gunther,

Your suggested modification is the easiest way. Note that we've been hesitant to change the defaults because it may result in a polluted user pool; you'll no longer be sure that everyone registered as an author actually wants to be one.
