Calculation publication fails with message ' There has been an error retrieving Browse collection structure... '

This will usually happen the first time that we try to publish our calculation in the ioChem-BD system. When this message appears

No community assigned to user error

it is warning that our user account has no community defined on the Browse module to publish to. You have to contact your ioChem-BD administrator and ask him/her:

  1. to generate a community where to publish your calculations (if its not already created)
  2. and add your user to an existing community as administator.
