I encountered a very strange error using the OJS 2.4.5.
While updating the metadata for one published paper, I get the following error message:
403 Forbidden Forbidden You don't have permission to access /ojs/journal/editor/saveMetadata on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
This happens only with the abstract field. I can edit the rest of the fields with no problem.
A) this error happens when I edit the 5th line of abstract forward!!! I can edit the first 5 lines of abstract and there is no problem. I copy-pasted the text into the note pas and removed all styling, etc, still the same problem. The text I am trying to add and gives error has 1171 characters.
B) I tried to copy-paste the problematic abstract text into another dummy paper abstract field (by editing its meta data in the same way). and it produced the same error there as well.
C) For B) I tried copypasting it another text, several time so that it made about 1580 chars, and it worked with no problem!!! the abstract was saved!
- any clue what is going on?
- Where are these meta data (e.g the keyword, abstract, etc) are stored? In Database? Which table/field? I am thinking if editing the abstract for this paper there.
