Tinymce problem with user registration in OJS

One problem I have seen in various OJS systems in different versions is that when a user wants to register and upload an image to their profile the system does not allow it.

At first the system shows a normal loading of the image, but always remains in that step until it is clicked on “View script’s output”:

The error that appears after several minutes of waiting is as follows:

This does not happen if the user is already logged in and wants to upload the image.

Do you know if there is a patch that corrects this problem?


Hi @aovalle,

That image upload mechanism requires a user to be logged in, so strictly speaking, it’s a bug that the option is available on the registration form. However, we’re unlikely to fix it as we’re focusing on OJS 3.x development.
