Review Form Not Displaying

I am running OJS

I needed to change a review form that had already been used 4 times. I deactivated the form and created a new one. I do understand that once a review form is used it cannot be edited. I tried to change some of the radio button items in my database using phpMyAdmin. No luck there.

I have made no changes to any of the OJS php code.

The list of review forms looks like this

The last item is the new form that I am working on to replace the one with 4 uses.

When I click on Preview for the first form that has not been changed or edited I get this. As you can see it is blank.


When I click on preview on the third form I can see the preview. As you can see there are 0 uses.

If I go to a submission that uses the first form and try to view the review I see this


I have also cleared the data cache and the template cache. No change.

Something is not set right for the first form. I am trying to publish an issue next week and need to see the reviews.

Thanks for your help.


I cannot get a backup copy of my database and it seems to be corrupted.

Is there a way that I can identify what needs to be changed to get back to things working with the reviews and review forms?

I desperately need help on this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @RickMath,

Check your PHP error log for details.

Can you describe what your database entries look like, and how you changed them?
