Why does \maketitle break my document?

I have a paper to submit in an hour, and have an issue with the \maketitle command. The template provided to me does not work, and the instructor has told me to figure it out on my own.

Here is a simplified example:

\documentclass{bioinfo} \copyrightyear{2014} \pubyear{2014}  \begin{document} \firstpage{1}  \title[QTL Analysis]{Evaluation of a QTL Dataset} \author[Robert R. Gotwals]{Robert R. Gotwals\,\footnote{to whom correspondence should be addressed}} \address{$^{1}$Department of XXXXXXX, Address XXXX etc.}  \history{Received on XXXXX; revised on XXXXX; accepted on XXXXX}  \maketitle  \begin{abstract}  Here's the abstract.   \section{Keywords:} first, second, third, fourth  \section{Contact:} \href{[email protected]}{[email protected]} \end{abstract}  \section{Introduction} Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore.    \end{document}

Does anyone have any idea of what is going wrong? System is Texmaker (compiler is Miktex) on 64-bit Windows 7. Code also refuses to compile on ShareLaTeX.

Thanks!

Why does \maketitle break my document?

If you don't want to provide information for the editor, you still need to use \editor but with an empty argumeny:
