Create new Reviewer doesn't open new form

I have a problem with adding new reviwer using this form.


When I want to click Create new Reviwer nothing happens.

Using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I tried to give more access to this folder/files but nothing seems to work. Also the button next to it “Enroll existing user” doesn’t work either.

In error.log it shows:

PHP Warning: Declaration of ReviewerForm::fetch($request) should be compatible with Form::fetch($request, $template = NULL, $display = false) in /var/www/html/ojs/lib/pkp/controllers/grid/users/reviewer/form/ on line 19, referer:[]=5&path[]=3
PHP Warning: Declaration of ReviewerForm::initData($args, $request) should be compatible with Form::initData() in /var/www/html/ojs/lib/pkp/controllers/grid/users/reviewer/form/ on line 19, referer:[]=5&path[]=3

Thank you for you help!

Hi @Jernej_Rejc

Those PHP warnings are cosmetic and shouldn’t create the behaviour you’re seeing. Are there any other errors, fatal ones, in there? Also, check your web browser console to see if you’re getting any Javascript error messages.


Hello again!

No there are no JavaScript warnings. Also no PHP fatal erros.

Kind Regrads,


seems that from time to time some add blockers prevent certain OJS modal windows from opening. Could be that not the case here, but worth checking if you are using such browser plugins.


No that is not the case.

But thank you for the advice. I will try to change some permsions because on windows it works fine.

Kind Regards,
