We’ve come upon the following issues while trying to import one of our journals:
There seems to be no way to import a full issue galley. The XML part for it looks like this:
But after the import procedure is over, this galley is missing. As far as I know, this issue has not yet been addressed anywhere. The error is this:
> HP Fatal error: Call to a member function setDeployment() on null in …plugins/importexport/native/filter/NativeXmlIssueFilter.inc.php
During the import all the recurrent section titles are repeated in Settings → Journal → Sections the number of times they occur in different issues. I believe this issue should have been addressed here: https://github.com/pkp/pkp-lib/issues/1709
But please, let me know, if it is not my case.
If some article has no author, the issue gets cut off on this article during the import.
If the issue number is a string (“1-2” in our case), the issue is not imported.
The articles imported
The articles imported are not available for any type of search (not indexed?)
Just another issue: The articles imported seem to be unavailable for any type of search.
Search functionality (both general and by author) just does not seem to work for all those articles imported.
I cannot even filter them by date.
I double checked the authors XML import options. There is an attribute “include_in_browse” for the element “author” that should be set to “true”, if you want to display the author. Thus, you will have to use this attribute for each author XML element.
The user_group_ref attribute of the author element should be used for that, i.e. for example user_group_ref="Translator", where user group name should be used as the value – the default is “Translator”, I think, but you can see it in your roles list.
