In a multijournal installation one of our journals has this error:
TypeError: $.pkp.controllers.grid.users.stageParticipant.form is undefined[Learn More] StageParticipantNotifyHandler.js:34:1
I can see that error in all pages in the dashboard and it basically prevents me from adding participants to submissions. The list of editors will not load.
There is nothing in the php error log. Also, as I said this is one journal in a multijournal installation and no other journal has this problem. I already tried turning of some plugins and enabling the default theme but no luck.
This morning I noticed that the same problem does not appear when using my other computer, even with the exact same browser.
So, after erasing my browser cache the problem is now gone! However, it would be nice to know what caused this and if it is potentially something that would happen again.
The difference is likely in the plugin set. I suspect most journals have plugins enabled that load the relevant locale file, but on this one, no such plugin is present and the system thus doesn’t load the file containing that locale key.
