I have OJS 3.1.1-4 installed. I want to make a custom child theme where the templates of the submission forms are changed. I tried to copy the
lib/pkp/templates/submission/ folder to
plugins/themes/<theme-name>/templates/submission/ and edit them there to remove some fields. I removed the last lines of the file
templates/submission/submissionMetadataFormTitleFields.tpl to remove the abstract textbox. However, this did not change the form. If I made the same changes in
lib/pkp/templates/submission/submissionMetadataFormTitleFields.tpl it works, but then the textbox is removed for all journals!
lib/pkp/templates/common/userDetails.tpl to the theme folder and changing the it there works (to change the layout of the add-contributor form)!
Why does it not work to change the submission templates, while it works to change the userDetails template? Any ideas?
