Default Discussion Participants

Hi,

We are using OJS 3.1.1.4. and we have an issue with the default discussion participants.
We want that an author opens a discussion the journal editor is selected by default.
Currently, authors have to select the journal editors.

Would it be possible to modify the code to get this functionality?

Any feedback for this issue ?

Hi @zaratushtra,

At the moment, changing that behaviour would require a code modification. However, you can see our future plans for email/discussion composition in some of the linked GitHub issues here… https://github.com/pkp/pkp-lib/projects/10

Hi @asmecher,
Thanks for your answer.
if it is a trivial code modification, I would like to do it by myself.
Could you please guide me to the necessary code modification? I mean which files should I change in order to provide the functionality.

Hi @zaratushtra,

I would suggest looking at lib/pkp/controllers/grid/queries/QueriesGridHandler.inc.php in the addQuery function (this is the handler class that calls the form when the user wants to create a new discussion), and the form itself in lib/pkp/controllers/grid/queries/form/QueryForm.inc.php (this is used for both creating and editing a new discussion).
