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.

Unable to enroll a new user!

I'm trying to enroll a new user I have an error message that the email address is already in use by another user!
But there is no another user! I simply made a mistake and I can't add it again! I removed the user name and his email to register him again but no success!
What is going wrong and how to register the user?

Ah, sorry Alec, I didn't think about that. I'll take a look to those posts and try to follow the solutions proposed.
Thank you
