Advanced search Filters preset to current date in OJS 3.1.2?

After updating to OJS 3.1.2 I’ve noticed that the “Advanced Filters” on the search result page are preset to the current date. Is that a problem just in our installation or done by purpose? If you start another search you always have to delete the date filters, to get search results.

I’ve added two screenshots. The first one is from OJS

I was about to ask the same question. This is totally absurd because it restricts the search such that nothing will ever be found. I noticed that this issue does not occur in the Bootstrap 3 theme but it is definitely a problem in the default theme for OJS 3. I’m surprised this has not yet been fixed yet.

Hi all,

This has already been filed/fixed at Search default's today's date as Start Date / End Date · Issue #4713 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub. There’s a patch there you can use to fix it, and the next release (3.1.2-1) will include it.
