Fatal error when saving metadata

#1

Hi, I am trying to submit some metadata (Journal -> Submissions -> All Active -> Submission with incomplete data). When I click on the “Save and continue” button, the circle starts circling, but it does not take me to the next step. In the error log I get this output:

[Tue Apr 23 14:59:31.944691 2019] [php7:error] [pid 21102] [client ip:port] PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function getAuthors() on null in /var/www/html/plugins/generic/orcidProfile/OrcidProfilePlugin.inc.php:402\nStack trace:\n#0 /var/www/html/lib/pkp/classes/plugins/HookRegistry.inc.php(107): OrcidProfilePlugin->handleSubmissionSubmitStep3FormExecute(‘submissionsubmi…’, Array)\n#1 /var/www/html/lib/pkp/classes/form/Form.inc.php(314): HookRegistry::call(‘submissionsubmi…’, Array)\n#2 /var/www/html/lib/pkp/classes/submission/form/PKPSubmissionSubmitStep3Form.inc.php(99): Form->execute()\n#3 /var/www/html/lib/pkp/pages/submission/PKPSubmissionHandler.inc.php(171): PKPSubmissionSubmitStep3Form->execute()\n#4 /var/www/html/lib/pkp/classes/core/PKPRouter.inc.php(390): PKPSubmissionHandler->saveStep(Array, Object(Request))\n#5 /var/www/html/lib/pkp/classes/core/PKPPageRouter.inc.php(231): PKPRouter->_authorizeInitializeAndCallRequest(Array, Object(Request), Array, false)\n#6 /var/www/html/lib/pkp/classes/core/Dispatcher.inc.php(134): PKPPageRouter->route(Object(Request))\n#7 /var/www/html/l in /var/www/html/plugins/generic/orcidProfile/OrcidProfilePlugin.inc.php on line 402, referer: http://url/index.php/journal/submission/wizard/3?submissionId=185

What could be causing this?

Are you using OJS 3.1.2? I just saw this error myself there. There may be a incompatibility between the latest OJS release and the current orcidProfile release.

Exaclty. In the meantime I disabled the ORCID plugin and it went through without problems. Leaving it off for now.
