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.

I have a problem with this.
They can't able to access their account because of IP address problem.
What else can we do to solve this problem.
What IP address should be in the IP Address Field? Is that really the problem?

Hi honey_doll02,

The institution must provide you with an IP Address, or a range of IP addresses, if you use IP-based authentication for subscriptions. You may also want to try domain-based authentication, so they can log in using eg. sfu.ca.

Hi honey_doll02,

I'm not sure I follow the exact problem, but if you're being asked for an IP address or domain for a subscription with subscription type that is print-only, please note that this is a bug that has recently been fixed.

You can find the full bug description as well as patch that fixes it here.

If you're not able to patch your installation or wish to upgrade at a later time, for the time being you should be able to enter some default text into the domain field in order to save the subscription. For example, something like "mytempdefault.com" -- really any text that is not an actual domain should allow you to save the subscription.
