Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

DEar all,

We have a problem of getting forced to change the password of the users account when they first login. How do you disable this? Or is this is a bug and how to remove it?

Thanks for the help.

Best Regards,

Hi Alias,

It depends on how the users are being created. If the Journal Manager is creating users manually using the Create New Users link, then there is a button that can be checked/unchecked that forces new users to change their password when first logging in; but that isn't checked by default. Users registering themselves shouldn't ever be forced to change their password on first logging in. Users imported via the import/export plugin shouldn't be required to change their password either, I don't think. If you can provide more detail on how these users are being created, I can provide more assistance.
