Hi everybody, hi
Is it possible in the author submission to add a new section with a not mandatory check box?

As to our knowledge, neither editors nor authors have any documentation about which of the checkboxes ha…

Many thanks in advance.

My need is:
Frontend authors view:
In the “Submission step 1” add the question that I want + checkbox + text related to the checkbox
Modify the template and locale files

Frontend reviewer/admin view:
Show somewhere in the picture here above the result of the new checkbox (here it is showed also the result of the “comments for the editor” box that we have in the “Submission step 1”)
To reach this goal, should I made changing in here? public_html/lib/pkp/controllers/grid filename: QueriesGridRow.inc.php
Could you please help me?
