When I create any category for my journal from the admin backend (Settings > Journal > Categories Tab), the frontend of the entire journal site crashes. I expected the new category to be saved and the frontend to remain functional. The only way I’ve found to resolve the crash is by deleting the newly created category from the backend.
Steps I took leading up to the issue:
- Logged into the admin backend.
- Navigated to Settings > Journal > Categories Tab.
- Created a new category.
- Saved the changes.
After completing these steps, the frontend of the journal site becomes inaccessible.
What application are you using?
Open Journal Systems (OJS) 3.4. I had the same issue with the 3.3 release.
