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.

I have deleted a user, it does not appears in the list of users.
But now the user want to create an account again, and the system say that:
"The selected username is already in use by another user."

Was it wrong?
Thank you for this good system.

Hi vazquezm,

There is no way to actually delete a user in OJS 2, as that would potentially involve destroying important records; however, when you "remove" a user from the journal, all roles in that journal are revoked.

If you want to re-enroll the user in a journal, choose a role as Journal Manager and click "Enroll Existing User" at the bottom of the page.

The next release of OJS will include a feature that will allow Journal Managers to merge accounts, which can be effectively used to delete accounts without destroying any records associated with them.
