Probelm ordering sections in OJS

In a new issue of a journal, the sections are out of order, but I can’t re-order them. I do the re-order and click ‘Done’ but the sections just revert back to the previous (wrong) order. Any suggestions?

Hi @sioux

I’d recommend upgrading to, which is the latest 3.3 version. A number of bugs related to section ordering have been fixed in the last few point releases.

Full agree with Jason… but if, for any reason, you can not upgrade, you can fix this adding a “seq” number in the “custom_section_orders” table.


Thanks a lot Jason and Marc. Really useful.

Hi @sioux also worth mentioning that a minor-ish security vulnerability was fixed in so it’s worth upgrading just for that.
