Odd behaviors after 2.1.0-1 upgrade

Postby sjones » Sun Feb 12, 2006 2:57 pm

I've encountered two rather odd things since upgrading to 2.1.0-1 and I can't figure out why they're happening or how to stop them from happening.

1. When logged in as section editor, on the navigation menu at the top of the page when viewing a manuscript, instead of reading as it had prior to the upgrade:

Home > User Home > Section Editor Submissions > #2 > Review

the page reads:

Home > ##navigation.usear## > Section Editor Submissions > #2 > Review

I can't figure out where the "##navigation.usear##" is coming from or how to make it stop. It doesn't seem to affect operation.

2. Again as section editor, when on the page listing all submissions currently under review, the "Review Due" column no longer lists the whole date, just a single number.

I have screen shots of these if that would be of any use, too.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Sjones,

Your first item is indeed a bug, but just a typo. See http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2072 for information on the bug and a patch to correct it. If you're not familiar with the process of applying a patch, follow these steps to correct it by hand:
  • Edit pages/sectionEditor/SectionEditorHandler.inc.php
  • Go to line 145:

    Code: Select all

    $pageHierarchy = $subclass ? array(array(Request::url(null, 'user'), 'navigation.usear'), array(Request::url(null, $isEditor?'editor':'sectionEditor'), $isEditor?'user.role.editor':'user.role.sectionEditor'), array(Request::url(null, $isEditor?'editor':'sectionEditor'), 'article.submissions'))
  • Change navigation.usear to navigation.user and the problem will be corrected.
For the second item you mention, the "due date" display has been changed to a number of weeks rather than an actual date. If you'd rather display the actual due date, edit templates/sectionEditor/submissionsInReview.tpl and templates/editor/submissionsInReview.tpl and change (around line 53):

Code: Select all


Code: Select all

Fantastic - thank you! Easily edited, both of them, thanks for the clear instructions.
