What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

change username?

Is it possible to change only someone's username in the system? They would like to keep the same email address, the same submissions and assignments, etc.

Thank you!

Hi Julie,

Yes, but you'll need to do this in the database and it'll also involve resetting their password. There are some details at http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=873.

Hi Alec

Thank you, this helps a lot. Can you do this for a single user, or will this make a global change?

Hi Julie,

This will only affect the user in question. As always, I'd suggest backing up your database before making the change just in case.
