Jquery error journal settings wizard

I have made a fresh install of OJS 3.0.0, applied the Lucene edit and the patch described in Journal Setup Error on Submission Page. I am now seeing another error when trying to Continue from the first step of the Journal Settings Wizard:

New information is not saved and Continue is greyed out. If I click on the next tab (Contact) and continue on that and then click on the Masthead tab, I can then press continue which then saves new information and opens the second stage.

So, it is easy enough to get around but something’s not quite right.


Hi @ianm,

I suspect your server is running something like mod_security, and one of its rules is getting incorrectly triggered. If you’re able, try temporarily disabling mod_security and see if that corrects the issue. If it does, you should have a logfile that captures these, and you may be able to identify and tweak the rule in question.

Dear Alec

Yes, mod_security has caused a number of issues before. I’ll see if the hosting company can work out what’s triggering it.



It was mod_security; they’ve made a change and it works now.
